A makeup routine for 40-somethings


Along with changing your skincare routine, the 40's are a good time to re-vamp your makeup routine. Heavy foundation and powder will only highlight fine lines, as it finds its way into those creases and wrinkles. If you're noticing thinning lips, try a natural-colored lip-liner. And, for disappearing eyebrows, use a shadow the same color as your natural brows to fill in thinning spaces. Finish with a peach or light rose shade of blush and a light-colored eye shadow, and then a touch of black mascara.

Great makeup tips! Do you have any suggestions for beauty products that work well with mature, dry skin? Even when I apply cream before putting on makeup, an hour or so later, I find my skin and makeup look and feel excessively dry.

Sure! I would use a makeup primer before putting any makeup on (after your moisturizer). I use one by Skindinavia. Then, you might look into a foundation like Elizabeth Arden's Ceramide Plump Perfect. Its one of the best that I've found for mature skin and helps even out your skin tone. For blush, I like DuWop Blush Therapy, which is a cream formula. Its moisturizing enough for dry skin, and subtle enough for mature skin.

Thanks for answering my question!

What is primer exactly? I thought using moisturizer was enough.

By the way, I'm really enjoying this blog!
