Guest Post from Selena Marchand, Makeup Artist
As a makeup artist with years of experience, I've had the privilege of working with clients of all ages and skin types. One area that I find particularly rewarding is working with mature skin. Embracing the natural beauty that comes with age and enhancing it through the right makeup techniques can truly make a difference. In this blog post, I'll be sharing some valuable makeup tips tailored specifically for mature skin to help you look and feel your best.
Hydration is Key
Mature skin tends to be more dry, so the first step is ensuring that your skin is well hydrated. Begin with a moisturizer to create a smooth canvas for makeup application. Look for products containing hyaluronic acid or glycerin to lock in moisture. The Fièra Apple Stem Cell Cream is a great option for mature skin because it not only hydrates, but it contains plant stem cells that are proven to reduce the depth of crow’s feet over time.
Concealing with Care
Less is more when it comes to foundations and concealers on mature skin. Avoid applying too much product, as excess makeup can settle into lines. . Look for hydrating concealers that don’t require layers for full coverage. The Fièra Luxury Concealer is specifically made for mature skin and is great at covering any dark circles or blemishes without a lot of product. Gently pat the concealer with your ring finger for a more natural finish.
If you’re looking for full face coverage, opt for lightweight, dewy foundations that provide good coverage without settling into fine lines or wrinkles. Avoid heavy matte formulas, as they can accentuate dryness and create a flat appearance. A foundation with a luminous finish will give your skin a radiant glow.
Soft, Blended Eye Makeup
Prime the lids with concealer and then a slight dusting of powder When it comes to eye makeup, opt for softer, neutral tones. Avoid overly shimmery or glittery eyeshadows, as they can draw attention to fine lines. Blend matte shades gently for a subtle, sophisticated look. Use a brown eyeshadow as eye liner and a black mascara for a lifted appearance.
Well-defined eyebrows can frame the face beautifully. Use a soft brow pencil or powder to fill in sparse areas, creating a natural and polished look. Avoid harsh lines, opting for soft strokes that mimic the appearance of real hair.
Blush and Bronzer Placement
Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for a youthful flush. Choose cream or liquid blush formulas for a more natural finish. When applying bronzer, focus on the areas where the sun naturally hits your face, such as the tops of your cheekbones, forehead, and nose.
Hydrated lips are essential for a polished look. Exfoliate your lips regularly and use a moisturizing lip balm. Choose lip colors that complement your skin tone, rosy pink is always a great choice. Steer clear of dark and harsh shades. Lip gloss can add a touch of youthful shine.
Matte Finish Without Dryness
Elevate your makeup routine with a matte finishing powder that effortlessly sidesteps dryness, delivering a subtle blurring effect to soften fine lines and unveil an airbrushed look that enhances your natural radiance. I would recommend a lightweight powder that adds an extra touch of luxury to your beauty routine, like the Fiéra HD Matte Finishing Powder – ensuring a radiant and ageless finish.
Makeup is a powerful tool that can enhance your natural beauty at any age. Embrace the changes that come with maturity and use these tips to accentuate your best features. Remember, makeup is all about self-expression and feeling confident in your own skin. Enjoy the process of creating a look that makes you feel beautiful inside and out.
