Everyone should have a solid skin care regimen as a base for their makeup, especially women in their 40s. In this video, Shiloe shows us how to apply makeup and get a youthful glow. Use a moisturizer with SPF as a base.
Step 1 Foundation
Use a foundation that will give you a youthful glow. Apply in a sheer fashion.
Example: CoverGirl's Advance Radiance
Step 2 Eyeshadow
Use colors that complement your skin, hair, and eye color. Apply the base color of a palette all over the lid, then use the darker color in the crease and just under the bottom lash line for definition.
Example: CoverGirl's 3 Kit Shadows
Step 3 Mascara
Mascara is an important step to achieve a youthful look. Curl your lashes before applying.
Example: CoverGirl Lash Perfection
Step 4 Eyebrows
Fill in your brow with an eyebrow pencil for a youthful look. Concentrate the color towards the arch and outer corners.
Example: CoverGirl's Brow and Eye Maker
Step 5 Blush
Use blush on the apple of the cheek and blend out towards the temple.
Example: CoverGirl's Cheekers
Step 6 Lipstick
Line lips with a lip stain and then use a gloss for shine and moisture.
Example: CoverGirl's Outlast Lipstain
- Don't forget to take care of your hair as it ages, as well.
