Make up for mature skin

Some older women fear looking like ”mutton dressed as lamb” but when the right products are used a subtle polished glamorous look, this is perfect for big events such as christenings, birthdays,weddings or any night out! As we mature our skin begins to change and so do the products we may need to use, so do your research before slathering on the same face moisturiser (etc) you’ve used for 20 yrs!

As previously mentioned older skin can be difficult to tackle, make sure to moisturize the skin, avoid powders (only use a little to set the make up) and avoid frosted iradescent shadows containing mica – a powder that settles into wrinkles.

here is an example of a ”polished” look on a 78 yer old lady.

Teen makeup

Teen makeup

Many of us as teens only want to look older and then it all turns back to front after 30! We only want to look younger 🙂

Luckily teens just getting intno makeup have so many types to choose from: tinted moisturisers, very sheer foundations, sparkly and glittery eyeshadows and lipglosses! teens can have so much fun with makeup. I made up a girl for a night on the town with friends not long ago using some matte and shimmery eyeshadows and a lined satin lipstick which really plumped hers up!
