Hi, this month's article is on older skin types and being in that demographic. The Powder Room girls decided Karen needs a makeover!
One of the most common comments we hear when talking with our ageless/mature skin clients is that they are worried about how the makeup will look on their skin and they worry that they will look overdone or older.
As women, we start playing with makeup and our hair, some earlier than others and learn and grow with our look whether we are more natural or are someone who wears more makeup and changes our hairstyles/colours.
I can totally relate as I am nearing 50 years of age and some of my key issues are weeping eyes, rosacea, and my hair greying. I look at myself sometimes and get a fright, as I think “ is that me, I used to have dark hair and no wrinkles”. I find if I put on a too dark a smokey eye, it looks great for about 1 hour then it settles into my creases and I look more tired. I find it is about getting the right balance especially if I want something a bit more special for an event. My advise is also to follow who you are and even though traditional rules might say “don’t wear glitter as it makes your lines stand out more”, if it’s who you are and it’s your personality, there are ways to add some glitter so you remain true to who you are.
Below are some do's and dont's as well concerns we hear from clients about their own experiences and problems. Also look for our top choices of best products for mature skin makeup.
