Makeup Tips – Mature Skin

Makeup for mature skin is always a hot topic and something I get asked about all the time by my clients.
Truth be told, there are some rules to go by which have been passed down through the decades, one being, only wear matte everything when you see any sign of the life you’ve been living! I hate this concept and I genuinely believe that no matter what age you are, you can pull off whatever you like!
What I will help you out with, is sharing some tips and tricks about how to make your makeup work for you.

My number one tip for Makeup as we age is plain and simple – stay well hydrated!
Water is life at any age but as we get older, dehydration has a way of showing up more and can make you look tired and your skin lack-lustre.

Having a good skin care routine will work wonders!

Say yes to a bit of shimmer, applied subtlety to the high points of your face, it will draw attention to your lovely features.

Use creams over powders… going back to being hydrated, a cream blush or highlighter will give the illusion of dewy skin and won’t absorb light like some powder.

Add a pop of colour to the lips, line them well and you can look brand new… the pigment in our lips fades over time so just by going over your natural lip line, you’ve fuller lips, instantly.

Fill in your brows! This is a game changer if you have sparse brows, just by adding some colour to fatten them up, you can have an instant lift!

Here is our Video showcasing a look to suit a mature skin (or any) on the beautiful Monique…Enjoy!
