TIPS

Makeup Comes of Age
Inspire client loyalty with simple cosmetic adjustments to keep them looking fabulous into their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond.
Choose a concealer that matches your client’s skin tone and apply it in a “c” (not a “u”) shape. Psst: Concealer applied at the outside edge accentuates under-eye lines and wrinkles. Build up brows Sparse eyebrows read “old,” so don’t tweeze grays. Instead, fill them in with a hair color-matching pencil or shadow. Look soft (not shiny) It’s tough to resist those shimmery eye shadows, but resist you must, after a certain age. Their reflective quality highlights all the wrong features (read: crinkles). Use shadows with a satiny finish—light shades for the lid and under the brow bone, with a neutral tone in the crease. Keep it simple. Apply eyeliner softly and close to the upper lash line only. Color her healthy Highlight cheeks with peaches and pinks for an appealing, but subtle, glow. Provide lip service Lips lose definition and fullness as we age, so counteract that effect with soft-formula lip colors that are just a shade or two darker than her natural color. Use a lip liner and perhaps a dab of gloss in the center to add pizzazz to her pucker. —Linda Kossoff Sources: Janell Geason, global makeup educator, Aveda Ashlee Erickson, makeup artist and regional manager, Mirabella Beauty Kevin Givens, NAHA Makeup Artist of the Year and director of cosmetics, TIGI Cosmetics Philip L.

Helen Mirren ages gracefully with a “less is more” approach to makeup.

Painted ladies need not apply Experts agree: Too much makeup always makes us look older, no matter how proficiently it’s applied. When in doubt, always err on the side of “less is more.” Prime the surface Beauty dims when displayed on a poorly maintained canvas, or in this case, dermis. Fortunately, radiant skin is attainable at any age. Weekly facial exfoliators, hydrating moisturizers and UVprotectors are the holy trinity of skin care at any age. Create a foundation Heavy powder sinks unflatteringly into creases, so opt for a light cream or liquid base first and perhaps a dusting of loose powder for a photofriendly finish. Conceal; don’t clobber Overused under-eye concealer in a too-light shade is a no-no!
