The best applied make-up in the world still looks dull and cake-like, with no healthy skin underneath. But Greenberg says that many women over 40 expect their make-up to do all the work for them. "Many women are not hydrated or do not have complete skin care," she says. "I strongly recommend finding products that feed your skin. That is mandatory form can look more natural on the skin."
Dehydration and fine lines and wrinkles are often the main cause of skin aging (though skin type and problem are different for each). Here's a basic routine for skincare to try to fill and remove your skin without wrinkles also Much effort.
Poorly mixed foundation looks wobbly with everyone, but is particularly noticeable in mature skin. "Many women arbitrarily sand on the ground or tint the moisturizer with their hands and often miss spots or form lines of demarcation [at the neck or hairline]Jamie adds, "It's so important that you take your time and tackle it evenly."
Instead of tapping your fingers on the ground, try a thick base brush such as the Rodial The Airbrush Foundation Brush (55 USD) or the EcoTools Wonder Cover Complexion Brush (9 USD) or – Jamie's Favorite Brush – a classic beauty blender (do not forget him to moisten)) for a perfect application.
Greenberg says that's one she sees a lot of, Women are so used to the looks and products they've made since college that they wake up one day, it's 20 years later, they're on the last little stub of a very old lipstick and their overall look is super outdated. "We do not keep the same clothes every day and wear the same. Same with skincare and Make-up, "says Greenberg. "When it's old, throw it out."
Greenberg says she has friends who had eyeshadow pans for 10 years or more. "Not only is it unhygienic, it also looks bad on the skin," she says. "I'm all for a signature style too, but it's fun to turn things around." It does not necessarily have to be a major overhaul. Make a simple change! For example, Try Navy Liner instead of Black, Coral Lip instead of Nude or Dewy Foundation instead of Matt. Experiment with filling your brows with a fiber-rich gel instead of a crayon, or even access to colored mascara. "Small changes make a big difference," says Greenberg.
