Make up Tips for Women over 50

Today I’m going to share my top 10 makeup tips that every woman over 50today I’m going to share with you my top makeup tips that have
been taught to me by my teachers and educators who were all makeup artists
and they’re used on celebrities and everyday women just like you and I and
one of my favorite teachers is Rae Morris and she’s renowned as one of the
world’s most influential makeup artists and I’ve just done a masterclass with
Rae and she has lots of really great makeup books that teach you different
techniques so these techniques here that I’m going to show you today relate to
you a woman over 50 with mature skin and they’re really cool so let’s get
started tip number one is so cool and it helps you work out how to do your eye
makeup so you do one of two things ask yourself do you like to wear your
hair in a high ponytail or do you like to wear your hair in a back ponytail and
if you answered a high ponytail it means that you want to bring your face up
which is probably most of us because we all would like to bring our faces more
up than down and if you do wear your hair in a high ponytail to get that look
you use an eye makeup that comes up like this and it brings your eyes up and if
you chose the behind ponytail just one pulled back behind your head it usually
indicates that you like to widen the look of your face because that’s pulling
your face that way so this is a really great tip to know
because you automatically if you go to pull your hair up you pull your
eyeshadow up and it’s going to give you that lift whether your hair is up or
down and if you pull your hair back normally you bring your eyeshadow out
this way and your eyeliner and that widens the look of your face I will do
another video on those makeup looks but that’s a whole big video but just to get
you started work out high or back ponytail and play with your
eyeshadow up or out tip number two how to get rid of dry flaky lips I learnt
this tip from dr. Obagi and he has a skincare range called ZO health and
before that it was called a Obagi like his surname and his tip is to get your
finger and rub your lips vigorously while they’re clean before you go to bed
and stimulate all the blood flow and just go to bed with no lip balm on them
and do this for a week and by the end of that time you will have exfoliated all
of the dryness out of your skin and if you do have very very dry lips it could
be because you’re dehydrated so make sure that you keep your water up and try
this trick and see if it works for you let me know if it does tip number three
staying with dry lips is this product here it’s lansinoh and it’s a nipple
cream but it is amazing this particular product only has one ingredient and it’s
a lanolin and you put it on your lips and I feel amazing
and look how big it is really a lip balm usually comes in a size like this for
about $20 or you know you can get them cheaper but for this quality but for
this you can decant it into a smaller container like this and you can keep one
beside your bed and in your handbag and in the bathroom and in the car and then
also with your leftover you can get some of these and gift them to your friends or
your children my boys would love this I think so yeah this is a really great tip
and try this let me know if you’ve tried it because I love it
tip number four is about highlighting now this is a really great tip so when
you highlight you curve the highlight on your cheek slightly because when you’re
curving it you’re going to draw the eye up and when you actually highlight down
like this you’re making your cheek look longer and that makes you look older so
oh my highlighter I dropped and it broke but I have a trick to fix that but for
now I’m just going to show you this is the Becca highlighter and the reason we
use it is to make it look like our skin is naturally glowy and luminous but if
you can see product on there and if there’s a heavy amount of product or if
there’s a straight line of product when you go outside it’s really noticeable
and then it defeats the purpose of it looking like your naturally really
healthy and glowy so I’m going to show you the way to do it so you just gently
curve up like this and you’re sort of following your cheek so see here and go
up and up instead of going all the way down so I really love knowing that it’s
just little tweaks with makeup application that make all the difference
tip number five is adding the contrast color to your eye color on your eyes to
make them pop and this is perfect for mature women because if we just want to
use a minimal amount of makeup using a contrasting color on your eye even if
it’s just in a small way makes your eyes pop so it automatically brings your face
alive I’ve got these color charts here for each color eye and you can see for
your particular eye color what colors to use to make your eyes pop the only one
here I don’t have is grey eyes and the reason is because grey eyes are
considered neutral so grey eyes can be brightened using any of these colors but
you can use these colors as a light dusting of eyeshadow or an eyeliner I’m
not saying to cover the whole eyelid in in this color that would look not great
but if you use a color that’s on this chart for your eye color it will enhance
today I’ve got to go old eyeshadow on top of my eyeliner and
because it’s gold and my eyes are blue it’s in the family the golden orange
kind of family and it makes my eyes pop and it just lifts them that little bit
more as mature women we all love a lift and this will do it for you for sure tip
number seven this is more of a recommendation than a tip and this tip
is for women who get mascara bleed and that’s when your mascara ends up under
your eye or on your eyelid and it’s really annoying and the reason for this
is the product mascara when mixed with oil dissolves and it’s just like if you
use an oil makeup remover to take your makeup off it’ll take it off straight
away and we have oils in our Foundation and our moisturizer and our serums and
we have lots of natural oils in our eyes as we’re getting older there’s one
product that I know of that does actually work and doesn’t bleed it’s the
Mac it’s in a blue container and it’s the only blue one Mac have and I’ll
leave a link where you can buy it but when you put this on it won’t dissolve
with the oils in your skin so this is a really good tip for those of you out
there who have that panda eyes problem tip number eight is about lipstick on
mature lips so lipstick is made up of a waxy substance and because it’s a waxy
substance it melts as our body heats up just like normal wax does so if you’d
like to avoid lipstick bleed the best thing to do is get a lipstick with a
high pigment and wear a lot less of it if you’re wearing a creamy lipstick with
a low pigment and more cream it’s going to melt off you during the day and
there’s lots of products that have a high pigment color that you can either
tap on to your lips so you’ve just got the color and it stays there all day or
that you can layer on as a lipstick I’ll share a list of lipsticks that are high
pigmented and they’re really great for mature women because we don’t want that
bleed and adding a little bit of color to our face just lifts us so
much so try that next time you’re out shopping for a lipstick and you can do
something like you know just take a little bit of lipstick and Pat it on and
just get that color and when it’s a very high pigment it’ll just stay and a high
pigment means that the color is the ingredient with a few other things added
and some other lipsticks are the colors added with a whole lot of other
ingredients so great tip for women with mature lips to stop all that bleeding
tip number nine when you’re wearing a lipstick particularly a red lipstick
without foundation the color of the lipstick is going to draw out the red in
your face so as mature women that can be a problem
for many of us because we get these little red veins here and our skin can
be blotchy so the perfect thing that we can do is to get a really good base on
our skin first and then add color so if you’re going to wear lipstick to lift
your face which is great make sure that you’ve even out your skin tone first so
that you’re not bringing all that attention to the red in your face tip
number ten is to reapply to freshen up your makeup during the day as opposed to
packing on a whole lot of makeup in the morning so what you can do is buy
something like this and this is just a three compartment
little container and if you put your a little bit of foundation blush and
highlight in here and carry a Beauty Blender and then put it in a little case
or something that you can throw in your handbag and your makeup will look a lot
more fresh and dewy and youthful if you reapply during the day after
lunch or after a meeting or before a meeting rather than pack it all on so it
stays all day because when we have that look and you go outside it might look
good in the mirror but when you get outside it just screams I’ve got a lot
of makeup on so you’re better off to do something like this and reapply during
the day and you’re going to look more beautiful and more fresh.
