Daily makeup should meet the needs of the skin. Age-related changes require adjustments in care as products that were relevant in your 30s or 40s may lose their effectiveness in your 50s.

Moisturizing should be the basis of daily care. Experts told us what mistakes to avoid in order not to focus on skin imperfections.

Give up powder

It is better to choose liquid-based cosmetics. In this case, you should first apply a cream with a moisturizing effect to the skin. Powder will clog wrinkles and visually add age. On mature skin, powder stands out and looks unnatural.

Choose the right lipstick shade

The main rule is that the color of lipstick should not "conflict" with the natural skin tone. It is better to choose liquid rather than matte formulas. Lips tend to get smaller with age, and nude pastel colors can counteract this, making them look fuller and plumper.

You can pre-apply a lip primer and lip pencil in the same shade as the lipstick to prevent smudging and the appearance of fine vertical lines above and below the lips, which we often notice in older women

Eyebrow accents

Women over 50 tend to lose the defined line of their eyebrows. Take care of a high-quality pencil or gel. You can try the eyebrow shaping technique, which involves defining marks to "outline" where the eyebrows should start and end, as well as where the arcs should go.

It is better to give up eyeshadows

Makeup artists advise to minimize the use of shadows, especially shimmering ones. An exception may be a certain festive event. Do not apply dark shadows in the crease of the eyelid as this technique adds age. You will also look tired.
