Women nowadays take more care about their looks than in the past. If you compare the way you dress and do makeup now to the way they did it 50 years ago, you can tell that modern women are much better and younger-looking. The 50s are the new 40s and the beauty industry has so many products developed for more mature skin, that the women in their 50s look better than ever. Here are some tips for maintaining your good looks in your 50s.
No makeup can hide traces of tired and hungry skin. It is important to focus on the health of your skin, rather than on hiding imperfections. That is why it is vital to keep up with the skincare routine every day. Good moisturizing creams don’t have to be expensive, you just need to figure out which one is the most suitable for your skin type. Those containing retinol are a good choice because this ingredient is said to be very effective in reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
It is also beneficial to book a facial treatment occasionally. There are various facials available only in salons which will make your skin firm and dewy. Also, a professional cosmetician will give you some recommendations about taking care of your skin and which products to include in your skincare routine.
The purpose of makeup is to make us look fresh, young, and beautiful. Also, it is a powerful tool used to emphasize our best features and hide imperfections. However., at your mature age the rule less is more needs to apply. Wearing a heavy foundation is something to avoid because it will not hide anything and will clog your pores. It is recommended to wear a CC cream or a light foundation instead, to give your skin a fresh and dewy look.
Another thing that you should stop using is face powder. Your skin will probably become dry and with the powder, it will look unnatural. You need something that will look more refreshing on your face.
When it comes to eye makeup, you want something that will make your eyes pop. This means ditching dark eyeshadows and black eyeliner. Light color shadows will make your eyes more open and attractive. Naturally, you need some mascara to make them big. Women of every age who want their lashes to look luscious at all times turn to super popular eyelash treatment – lash lift. It is also called a lash perm because your lashes are lifted and curled to look longer and thicker. The effect of the treatment lasts for a month or two and you have gorgeous lashes as soon as you wake up, without having to spend time on a lash curler and layers of mascara.
Lash extensions are also a good solution, but they can look fake at this age. Our lash hairs become thinner and lash lift is a better option to make the best of them. Lash extensions can also look good if you don’t exaggerate and make them too long or too thick.
Thin eyebrows somehow make a person look older. Luckily, the trend of thin brows is left in the 90s and bushy, thick eyebrows are a thing now. For a person of your age, it is important to have well-shaped brows. They will soften the face, frame it, and draw attention to your eyes. If you don’t have rich eyebrows, it is a good idea to fill them in with a pencil or brow shadow.
Make sure you choose the appropriate one that matches your hair color. Don’t press too hard, you don’t want your brows to have visible pencil lines. Making small dots for a powdery effect is a better option.
Since our lips also get thinner with age, it is better to use soft, light shades of lipstick. Dark lipstick will make you look older and your lips will look even thinner than they are. Therefore, avoid plum and purple lipstick, as well as the dark shades of red.
Even if you don’t have dry lips, use lip balm to keep your lips fresh and smooth. It should be a part of your skincare routine. Apply lip balm on your lips every night before bed, especially if you are the person who puts lipstick on every day.
Makeup trends nowadays are in favor of a natural look, which is great for people in the 50s. Using natural cosmetics, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and avoiding too much makeup is beneficial for your skin and will make you always look your best.
