When we’re young we barely need makeup to look good, but when we get old and need the camouflage more than ever, it sometimes seems impossible to find foundation that’s up to the job!

Don’t despair, it is possible to find make-up that works for mature skin. It’s all about good preparation, choosing the right products, and applying them with subtlety.

Most of us grew up using powder cosmetics. Those born in the ’40s may use pressed powder instead of foundation; baby boomers were taught to set their liquid foundation with translucent powder; and nearly all of us have used powder blush. The latest craze for mineral powder foundations has sucked in a few of us, too, with the promise of better skin.

Unfortunately, powder—even mineral powder—is unflattering to most mature women.Cream blush FB - image (2)

The next step is how to apply your cream blush – very easy:  Pick up just a bit of cream blush on the pads of your fingers, smile, and apply to the apples of your cheeks. Then, blend, blend, blend upwards along your cheekbone. For the most long lasting blush, apply a cream blush followed by a powder blush to set your cheek.

One of the biggest complaints we hear from our mothers and other women over 50 is that wearing blush makes them look “really old.” While we think they look fabulous with or without makeup, it turns out that powder blushes aren’t the best choice for mature skin.

According to celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles, cream blush is ideal because it looks more natural and doesn’t fold into lines or creases. She adds, “Powders can accentuate wrinkles and make older, drier skin look even more dehydrated.

Stiles recommends applying cream blush with your fingers or a dual fiber brush like this e.l.f.” stipple brush” target=”_blank”>e.l.f. Cosmetics stipple brush, as it will allow you to “really feather out the color, insuring perfectly blended edges.” Finish by setting your face makeup with a light dusting of finishing powder to help your color last all day.
