Makeup Over 40

 The proper makeup application will enhance your natural beauty without looking artificial. Makeup application rules are not black and white, and it can be a fun way to express yourself, but some techniques work better on mature skin than others. Applying your makeup at 20 will differ significantly from how you use it after 40 and beyond. Our skin goes through many changes over the years, and using makeup the wrong way can date your whole look and inadvertently make you look older than you would like to. A good makeup application will highlight your best features. 

Makeup Options are Endless

Makeup brands are finally catering to women over forty with formulas that help to compliment skin, and some even have skincare ingredients built in that brighten complexions. Using the right products and colors that compliment your skin will make a big difference in how you look as you age. 

Using the right colors can make all the difference.

Using the right makeup formulas for mature skin will help improve your skin and make it look more youthful. A one-on-one makeup consultation will help you to analyze what colors will work best with your skin tone to enhance your best features and bring them out.
