Mature Make-Up

Have Glowing, Mature and Youthful-Looking Clients with Carefully Applied Make-Up

Women over 50 deal with changes to their bodies that include hot flashes, acne and drying skin. How do you do a really great day-look for ladies over 50? You do so by starting out with the mindset of making the skin look even and glowing, without emphasising lines and achieving great eye definition without ending up with a very harsh result.

There are many other tips that you can follow to provide your clients with a beautiful and understated, carefully applied day-look that beautifully complements their features. Your biggest beauty consideration for your client should be her skin, and helping her maintain it in tip-top condition. The better the skin, the less make-up she will need.

The secret to working with mature skin can be summed up as follows: moisturise. Nothing plumps up the skin better than great hydration levels. It also helps everything glide on better, making your job easier. This includes the foundation, sunscreen, concealer and blush, everything! Flaky and dry skin is certainly not attractive. This is especially true when foundation sits atop it. Help your client to combat the flakes by advising them to exfoliate daily with either a facial scrub, or a plain washcloth dipped in coconut oil.
