Beauty Tips for Women Over 60

Beauty needs change as women age, including more meticulous maintenance of the skin and hair. Piling on foundation to cover blemishes is no longer a concern; rather it is important to choose the right makeup that will not dry out skin, which will prevent making wrinkles and lines more noticeable. Even though skin can pale and hair can turn gray, there is no reason older women cannot look stylish and attractive with the right color combination for makeup, hair and eyebrows.

Shorter cuts often look best on older women.

Skin CareBe sure to moisturize skin regularly as dry skin tends to look older and wrinkles and lines look more noticeable. Use moisturizing creams as well as soaps to keep skin looking fresh. Try those with antioxidant ingredients, which kill free radicals that damage and age the skin, according to the women’s website Bella Online. Look for sunscreens with an SPF of at least 15 that protect against UVB and UVA rays, which damage skin and cause it to age. Drink plenty of water to keep skin hydrated and plump-looking. A balanced diet low in sugar and processed foods and high in antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables also helps keep skin looking fresh and vital. Always be sure to wash off makeup at night before going to bed to prevent it from clogging pores.


Makeup TipsDo not use makeup too heavily if you are 60 or older. Apply moisturizer and makeup primer before using foundation. Moisturizer and primer will help keep the makeup from settling into lines and wrinkles in the skin. Refrain from using too much powder and powder blush, both of which can also settle in lines and wrinkles. Liquid and cream foundations are your best options for this reason as well. Stick to cream blush for a fresher appearance and try youthful peach and pink shades. Use cream lipstick rather than lip gloss or matte lipstick and apply neutral-colored lip pencils that are similar to your lip’s natural color to define them. Do not use red lipstick. Cream or liquid concealers can cover dark under-eye circles. Define the eyes with neutral eye shadows and eyeliners.


Eyebrows And HairEyebrows can thin and fade over time. Having your eyebrows professionally shaped can keep them looking good and help them frame the face. Wax pulls the skin so consider eyebrow threading or tweezing. Give brows extra definition and color by using powder, pencil or gel similar to your natural eyebrow color, but remember to apply sparingly. Skin color fades over time so try using your hair color to brighten skin tone. Consider dying hair a shade lighter or adding highlights around the face if not trying both. Long hair is generally unflattering on women past the age of 40 so think about ways to update your hairstyle that will compliment your style and skin color. If you decide to change your hairstyle or color you might need to rethink your makeup to best match your new hairdo.


How to Apply 1940s Makeup

The dames in the 1940s were ideally “naturally beautiful,” not like the tanned, athletic and fresh-scrubbed 1970s women, but in a soft, feminine and rosy way. Vivien Leigh, Jennifer Jones, Ava Gardner and Ingrid Bergman were among the most famous and beautiful faces of the decade. In the history of Old Hollywood, the makeup of this era is one of the easiest to re-create. Keep that in mind the next time you are invited to a costume party.

Feminine and natural

Apply foundation in your skin tone.

Apply foundation

Dust your face lightly with a translucent rose-tinged powder to give your complexion a natural-looking, pinkish hue.

Apply powder

Shape and define well-groomed brows with a brow pencil or powder in a shade that matches your hair color if you have dark hair, but darker by a notch or two if you have light hair. Eyebrows should appear perfect, with pronounced arches, regardless of thickness.

Shape and define brows

Apply a soft, subtle shade of eye makeup primer on your lids to complement your skin tone. Very sheer eyeshadow is fine; the focus for 1940s eyes is on the lashes.

Apply subtle eye makeup

Curl your eyelashes and lightly stroke black or black-brown mascara on your top lashes.

Apply mascara

Glue false strip lashes that are longer than your natural ones on your upper lash line, just enough to make your real ones appear more noticeable and defined.

Apply false lashes

Use a black liquid eyeliner over the region where your false lashes meet your lash line. Make sure your line is very thin, fine and even.

Apply black liquid eyeliner

Buff a light, rosy blush softly into the apples of your cheeks. Blend hard edges away with a makeup sponge to keep your look natural.

Apply a rosy blush

Exaggerate your top lip by drawing slightly past your natural lip line with a waxy highly pigmented lip liner. Select a shade of red that suits your coloring and your current mood. True red, tomato red and orange red were very popular in the 1940s, but deeper and cooler reds, such as raspberry and crimson, were common as well.

Line your top lip

Draw over your bottom lip line following its natural contour. Still using the lip liner, fill in your new lip shape.

Line your lower lip

Layer on a lipstick in a matching shade with a lip brush for even coverage.

Skin CareBefore you start wearing makeup, you must learn how to take care of your skin. It’s pretty simple–wash your face in the morning and at night and use a moisturizer with SPF. During the day also wear sunscreen on your face and body because moisturizers with SPF do not provide enough protection. It is important to wear sunscreen when you are young, to avoid skin damage when you are older.

If you have pimples, do not pop them, as that will cause scarring. Do not wear makeup on your face if you have acne. Makeup will clog your pores and it will be more difficult for your skin to get healthy again. Also, all the makeup you buy should be oil-free.

Wash your face in the morning and night.

EyesThe objective is to look natural. Eyeshadow in natural colors may be appropriate, but some elementary schools have banned students from wearing any makeup. If you are allowed to wear eyeshadow, try light purple, pink or brown colors for a softer look. The goal is to show a hint of color and not to overwhelm with bright, bold colors.

Go light with eye makeup.

LipsLipstick, no. Lipgloss, yes. An eleven-year-old can add color to her pout; it will hydrate the skin and prevent chapping. Use lipgloss with an SPF. These glosses come in a variety of colors so you can buy a couple and alternate.

Go for lipgloss.

NailsPaint your nails. There are so many colors to choose from that your nails will never be boring and it’s a way to express your personality through beauty. It’s best to stay away from dark polish and anything flashy–the objective is not to attract negative attention. Go for clear, cream, pink, red and pastel colors.

Paint your nails.

PerfumeThere are several designer scents that are geared toward tweens. There are also perfumes made from natural ingredients like water lily, lavender and jasmine. You can also buy perfumes that smell like your favorite scents, like fresh laundry, baby powder or sugar cookies.

Try a fresh, clean scent.

HairSome parents believe it is appropriate for tweens to get highlights at the salon, but other parents do not. If you do end up coloring your hair, be subtle. Make sure your hair looks natural, as if the sun lightened it.

If your hair is straight and you want it to be wavy, braid hair while it’s wet before you go to sleep and you will wake up with wavy hair. For special occasions, ask an adult to curl your hair with a curling iron.

Don’t forget that a simple pony-tail is beautiful on anyone.

Style your hair.

Makeup Tips for When You’re Tired or Sick

Following a restless night or when you feel ill, you can rely on a few makeup tricks to improve the look of your tired skin and puffy eyes. With a few key makeup products and proper application, you can head out looking presentable and feeling confident.
If you slept insufficiently, make sure to drink plenty of water to replenish your body's moisture.

Hydrate Dehydrated Skin

You must cleanse and moisturize your skin to awaken your complexion, but those steps alone won’t make your tired and dehydrated skin look great. A tinted face product can make a big difference. But instead of using a high-coverage, thick foundation that emphasizes dryness, opt for a lightweight tinted moisturizer that evens out your skin tone and keeps your skin looking fresh.

If you need more coverage for dark circle and blemishes, use a concealer only in those spots. Additionally, you can apply a touch of creamy highlighter on your cheekbones to make your skin look dewy. If your skin is particularly dry, avoid using powder makeup, which can emphasize dry patches.

Cleanse and moisturize, but don't forget to use tinted moisturizer, too.

Mask a Pale Complexion

A pop of color on your cheeks can instantly brighten your face. Use a cream product instead of a powder to give your skin a fresher look. Choose a brighter color than you would normally use, such as a warm pink, fuchsia or peach color. Bronzer is another useful product. Apply a creamy, warm-toned bronzer along your hair line, on the temples, on the side of your face and under your cheeks, to warm up your complexion. If your skin tends to get oily, apply powder only on those areas of your face (usually forehead, nose and chin).

Brighten up with blush and bronzer.

Wake Up Tired Eyes

Tired eyes are usually red and puffy, so it’s best to avoid heavy, dark makeup, especially on the lower lid, which emphasizes tiredness and puffiness. Sweep a flesh-toned eyeshadow on your upper lid to even out the skin tone. Then, use an eyelash curler to give an instant lift to your eyes and apply plenty of mascara on your upper lashes only. Finally, line your inner rim with a flesh-toned pencil, which instantly brightens your eyes. Avoid applying concealer too close to your lower lash line as it will emphasize the puffiness.

Applying a dark eyeliner on the lower lid makes the eyes appear more tired.

Conceal Dark CirclesPiling up layers of under-eye concealer may seem like an appropriate choice, but proper concealer application is essential to efficiently camouflage dark circles. Choose a concealer one or two shades lighter than your skin tone, and apply it on your under-eye area. Dab only a few dots of product onto your skin, because if it feels tight and dehydrated, too much product could cause creasing and emphasize the fine lines. For a final touch to make your eyes look brighter and more awake, add a little highlighting eyeshadow in the inner corner.
Moisturize Dry LipsCertain lipstick formulas, such as the matte ones, tend to dry the lips and emphasize the lip lines. Opt for a moisturizing, sheer lipstick in light colors, as they tend to make your lips look fuller. A touch of lip gloss adds a little extra shine and makes your lips feel and look softer. If you choose to wear a matte lipstick, apply lip balm before the lipstick to condition them.

Dry lips need extra moisture to look and feel softer.

Additional Tips

Here are a few extra things you can do to look more alert and healthy:

  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Use a brightening mask before you apply your makeup.
  • Put two spoons in the freezer until they get cold and then gently press them under your eyes for a few minutes to help with de-puffing.
  • Keep your face moisturizer and eye cream in the refrigerator. Apply them cold to your face and eyes to help de-puff them.
  • Carry a hydrating toner or floral water in your purse and spritz your face throughout the day.
