I do Wedding Makeup most weekends. One of my most popular clients is the Mother of the Bride/Groom.
The common comments I hear when talking to my mature skin clients is that they are worried about how the makeup will look on their skin and they worry that they will look overdone or older.
Smokey eyes can look great for a while then the eyeshadow can settle into the crease of your eye. Heavy foundation can be the same. Too much foundation can enhance wrinkles. The trick to makeup for more mature skin is to find the right balance and be yourself. Don’t do a makeup look that is totally different on the wedding day. Do what suits your personality and feel comfortable with the way you look.
Here are my Makeup Tips for Mature Skin
Choose a foundation that is more hydrating. Powder foundation types or Heavy Foundation can dry out your skin. Moisturise your skin in the morning ,use a primer that smooths and moisturises your skin then apply a liquid foundation. A liquid concealer can be used under or over liquid foundation to hide any imperfection or darkness under the eyes.
Black eyeliner on top on the eyelid enhancers the lash line and makes your lashes thicker.
Individual False Lashes are great to make you lashes thicker and look very natural. False Lashes open your eyes.
Enhance those cheek bones and add some colour with a light contour and some blush.
Wear a lipstick that is a slightly brighter colour that you would normally use. A brighter lipstick give your face some colour and will look stunning in the wedding photos.
You don’t need to wear a lot of makeup. It will probably be more than you a use to. Just remember, you’ll have your hair done and a nice outfit on. You’ll need Makeup to complete your look.
I hope these tips help with your decision to have your makeup done by a professional makeup artist. I like to say to my clients. “By the time I finish with you, you will still look like you.” I’m just going to enhance your features and makeup you look amazing for the photos”
