Do you think that women should wear more make up as they age?
Should women increase the color and outlining of their normal make up routine as they get older?
Mmargie1966......hmmmmm, very good question. And I have a very good answer. Or should I say, I have an answer that I've come to discover best for myself and some friends my age.
As women age, it is my personal opinion, it's not so much a matter of more or less make-up. It really comes down to a whole new and different collection of make-up as well as application process. On the "grandmother's" face, softer, warmer colors are much more attractive than bright and darker colors. If you're into wearing foundation, it's wise for the older woman to wear a moisturizing one and stay away from any that shine or glitter....much more subdued eye make-ups are a good idea too.
Basically, lighter, warmer & softer & perhaps a little less......for women 50 and over. I truly believe we could make ourselves look even OLDER, trying too hard to look younger......YES/NO? Kind of like knowing when to give the mini skirts & flourecsent tops to the GOODWILL thrift shop! It's time, ladies.....just do it.
No - I would say less. As women age and their skin gets looser for want of a better word, the makeup tends to accentuate it. I have seen so many older women who look like clowns. I could name a ton of celebrities that fall into that category. More natural is better.
It depends on the type of makeup that she wears. Skin and hair lose pigment as we age, so it makes sense for a woman to use makeup that adds color her complexion. The trick is to avoid makeup that accentuates lines, sagging or enlarged pores. This means carefully selecting foundations, powders and concealers: Try them out before making a full-size purchase. It also means learning good application techniques such as using cosmetic sponges to blend and smooth foundation on the skin. Shiny makeup, along with bright colors, aren't good options for aging skin because they can look unnatural and, in the case of "shine," further accentuate lines, etc.
In addition to adding color to the skin with the use of foundations, tinted moisturizers, bronzer and/or blush, I also advise enhancing eyes with the use of a high-quality mascara (lashes thin with age, as well), particularly since mascara frames eyes without looking as heavy or obvious as eyeliner. Likewise, lip color is also important, as lips can become noticeably pale with age. My trick is to use a highly pigmented color my lips then blotting it and applying a coat of a lighter shade of lip gloss. This keeps the color on my lips while also giving them a bit of shine.
It depends upon the woman. Some age better than others.
