How to Apply Makeup in Your 50s
50 is fabulous and makeup only enhances your beauty at this age. In this video, Shiloe shows you makeup tips to enhance your natural maturing beauty.
Step 1 Prepare
As skin loses elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles begin to show. Always take care of your skin first so your makeup will look it's best. After cleansing and moisturizing use a primer as a base for your foundation.
Example: Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution, CoverGirl's Simply Ageless Serum Primer
Step 2 Eyeshadow
Shimmer can highlight fine lines around the eyes, so stick to neutral eye shadows with little or no shimmer.
Example: CoverGirl Exact Eyelights
Step 3 Mascara
Keep it simple with brown/black mascara.
Example: CoverGirl Professional Mascara
Step 4 Blush
A cream blush is good as it has some moisture and can help give you a youthful glow. Apply to the apples of your cheeks.
Example: CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless
Step 5 Lipstick
Line lips with a brush and fill back in with the same lip color.
Example: CoverGirl Lip Perfection
