BEST MAKEUP TIPS FOR WOMEN OVER 50

July 25, 2017

Let’s face it . . . Baby boomer women want to look and feel great, and are always looking for the very best makeup tips for women over 50. And, we don’t always need to spend a gazillion dollars on state-of-the-art makeup when we have excellent offerings right down the road at Target, CVS, Walgreens and other favorite pharmacies.

OUR BEST MAKEUP TIPS FOR SKIN CARE
Over-50 skin care starts with lots of moisture. We’ve consistently used Olay Age Defying Classic Renewal Cream — a great beauty product that minimizes the look of those fine little wrinkles and contains beta-hydroxy complex plus vitamin E. This product is for all skin types and is not greasy. Have loved it for years!

Start each morning with a squeaky-clean face and apply the Olay moisturizer generously. It’s a great warm-up act and sinks into your skin to leave a nice foundation for foundation, if you’ll pardon the pun.

OUR BEST MAKEUP TIPS FOR EYES
One of our next best makeup tips is Garnier SkinActive BB Cream, pegged as a 5-in-1 miracle skin perfector. The box boasts that this anti-aging cream will reduce wrinkles, firm skin, even skin tones, deeply hydrate and protect skin.  I have a light-to-medium complexion and the medium-deep color gives a little glow to the skin and looks like you’ve gotten a bit of sun. Follow up with a little cream or powder blush on the apples of your cheeks, if you like more color.

For the eye, I love Expertwear eyeshadow by Maybelline in Modern Metallics 60T bronze haze. Just use the gold to cover the entire eye lid, and contour the crease with the bronze. Then, use the brown shade to contour the crease of the eye. Complete the look with a Maybelline pencil eyeliner and line as close to the eye as comfortable.

OUR BEST MAKEUP TIP FOR LIPS
Add some shine with a great lip gloss like Revlon’s Lustrous Lip Gloss (Super Natural shade), and now you’re ready to go out and dance!

OUR BEST MAKEUP TIPS FOR NIGHT
Remember to treat your skin kindly with a night-time regimen that includes a good night cream. We rave about ROC’s Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream. This anti-aging cream applies easily to the face after cleansing and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, too.

Here’s the best news . . . these over-50 best makeup tips are not only fast and easy, they’re affordable!
