Our makeup team have selected a few helpful tips for you :

Translucent Powder Lashes

Use the wand to dust the powder onto your lashes. Apply two coats of mascara, wiggling the wand in at the root. From there, sweep up and inward toward your nose. Use a clean brush to sweep away any excess powder that fell out of bounds.

Foundation over 50? Choose yellow undertones

Like other things in life, foundation selection gets easier with age. Instead of wondering if you’re pink or neutral, default to a slightly yellow undertone. It’s not a universal tip, but many women look best with a warmer shade as they mature. The hint of gold adds a bit of warmth that is more commonly associated with youth. Same goes for hair – golden blonde may begin to look more appealing than ashy tones.

Concealer Lip Contour

Any lines, hollowness, or sagging around your mouth casts subtle shadows. Therefore, if you want to make the most of your lips, conceal the area around them to cancel out any discoloration. This makes your lips stand out a little more. It can also be done after applying lipstick to clean up any little mistakes and keep the lip line crisp and uniform.


Do a lighting test before you leave

Could your bathroom lighting be not so great? Overhead fluorescent lighting, for example, can add shadows to your face and make your skin look sallow. It might help to revise your lighting situation in the room where you apply makeup. Better yet, find a spot with good natural lighting where you can apply your makeup each day.


Most importantly - Have fun with makeup , try new techniques and products !
