For aging facial skin, I favor light, tinted moisturizers over thick liquid foundations, which can make skin look dull. I am also a fan of concealer. Applying it can be tricky, but it evens out skin tone, which changes as we age. Choose a shade lighter than your skin, dab it on in a triangle from the outside of your eyes down to outside of your nose and then up to the inside corners of your eyes. With a cosmetic sponge go ahead and smooth out your product. Then wrinkle your face so you can see where the concealer is in your facial lines. Smooth it out again, and then dust a little translucent powder over your face.
Mascara and eyeliner are fine for older women, when applied with a light touch. For eye shadows go with neutral colors and neutral pallets, shimmery eye shadow ages older women’s skin. Blondes can wear champagne or wheat-colored shadows, brunettes look good in coppery browns or cocoas and gray-haired women can try gray with a darker gray for contour.
