Tip #1: Avoid Foundation That Dries Skin
It settles in wrinkles, making fine lines more visible. Opt for a cream-based foundation or heavy, tinted moisturizer instead.
Tip #2: Don’t Go Overboard with Highlighters
Use highlighter sparingly, and only on the focal points of your face.
Tip #3: Say No to Dark Lip Colors
Pair nude/pastel lipsticks with a complementary lip liner for defined lines around the mouth.
Tip #4: Don’t Swipe Eyeshadow Techniques from Influencers
- STOP “highlighting” your crease.
- STOP doing the classic cut crease or the spotlight effect (sorry!)
- A hint of shimmer on the eyelids is okay
- Jazz up your eyes with mascara instead**
(**Eyelashes are important. Read on to find out why.)
Tip #5: STOP Using Mascaras Meant for 20-Year Olds.
Most mascaras that you see in the market today don’t cater to mature women.
❌ They DON’T have wands to separate and coat thin, tiny lashes. This creates lumps.
❌ They ARE NOT hypoallergenic. You get red, watery, irritated eyes. And smearing.
❌ They DRY OUT lashes with water-proof formula. Mascara on dry lashes flakes.
❌ They ARE NOT easy to take off! And further damage lashes over a period of time.
