10 Makeup Tips Every Woman In Her 40s Must Know To Look Her Best
Over 40? These are the makeup tips for you!
Perhaps the most important of the makeup tips is that age is just a number. You can age gracefully and even look better in your 40s than you ever have before. You just need to eat right, exercise, don’t engage in any activities that can age your skin, and follow the right makeup tips and beauty regimen. And now…
The Makeup Tips That Will Make Your 40s Your Best Beauty Years Yet
Make an eyelash curler part of your beauty routine. Lashes make your eyes look youthful and awake. Use an eyelash curler to curl each lash from the root. Hold for 20 seconds for the best result.

2. Highlighter is Your Best Friend
Here’s one of our sneaky-good makeup tips. As you get into your 40s, your skin tends to appear dull. It will need some help to revive that lost glow. Use highlighters on your cheekbones, jawbones and bridge of your nose. If you don’t want to use highlighter, you can try a lotion that contains shimmer particles. This will also help add that natural glow to your face.
3. Eye Primer
As you get older, the chances of your eye shadow fading away are high. Eye primer will allow your eye shadow to stay in place longer. It prevents makeup meltdown that will eventually settle in wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and veins which become more visible as aging eyelid skin gets thinner.
4. Foundation Cream to Combat Dryness
As you age your hormone levels decline. As a result, your skin gets dry. Foundation cream is terrific for dry, aging skin. Look for a think, full coverage cream. Apply the foundation cream with a hydrating primer or face moisturizer for the best result.

5. Camouflage Dark Circles
You may want your eyes to pop out more but have dark circles you are having trouble covering up. Have no fear! Remember, opposite colors on the color wheel cancel each other out. Most under eye circles are bluish, so look for a peach colored concealer. Also, use a color correcting primer before applying your concealer to neutralize any under eye discoloration.
6. Hairs on Your Chinny-Chin-Chin
As you age, facial hairs that were barely noticeable will become thicker, darker and more prominent. Have a pair of tweezers handy to remove any stray facial hair immediately. You may also visit an esthetician to keep your facial hair in check, but never wax facial hair. This leads to making the skin loose and saggy.
7. Ageless Lips
The area around the lips is often the first area where fine lines and drying appear as our skin ages. To help cover this up, use foundation on your lips. Follow it with powder to fill in the fine lines. Next, use a lip liner and then finally your lipstick.
8. Cream Blush, Not Powder
Women over 40 should switch to cream blush. Powder tends to dry on aging skin and can also look chalky. Cream blush will brighten your face bringing back that youthful look. Apply cream blush by tapping it on your cheeks using your finger.
9. Thinning Brows
As you age, your brows will likely become sparse and start to fade. If they begin to fade, you can restore them with a brow growth serum like RevitaBrow. If your brows just won’t grow, use a good brow pencil with a super fine tip that allows you to feather your brows to create a natural look.
Older skin tends to be dry. Combat dryness with a good moisturizer. Apply a light moisturizer with sunscreen during the day and a cream based moisturizer at night to replenish your skin. Well-moisturized skin feels soft and smooth and will also create a better palette for smooth makeup application.
Embrace a healthy lifestyle and use the ten makeup tips above for natural, glowing skin throughout your 40s.
