I mean, check out this un-retouched before and after. It’s pretty awesome, isn’t it?
I’ve received so many requests from Green Beauty Team readers about this topic of makeup for mature women. Probably because most makeup tutorials on the web are targeted to a rather young audience.
In fact, most of my clients for private lessons are women over 40.
The reason is that something happens to your face around that time period of life where you can no longer get away with just wearing a bit of mascara and lipstick.
As I mentioned in this video, there’s a fine line between using the right amount of makeup to add back youthful glow and emphasis to your features and over doing it in a way that actually accentuates your age.
So I filmed this makeup tutorial with my close friend Lia Griffith, a world renowned paper and craft designer. She’d been bugging me for another makeup lesson for quite sometime now that she’s both over 50 and doing a lot more national TV appearances.
We both realized that our audiences would love a look at my natural makeup secrets for women over 50. So she generously allowed me to use her face, studio and had her team work on the whole thing to make it a fabulous final product.
I thought it would be edited down to about 8-12 minutes, like most makeup tutorials are these days. But when her 20-something, non-makeup-savvy male editor said he just couldn’t figure out how to cut it down past 30 minutes because there was so much good content, I laughed and felt proud.
I know whether you are over 50 or not, are going to love the tricks I share and how well Lia and I banter in this Over 50 Makeup Tutorial.
Below I also have a list of many of the products I used on Lia’s face in case you’re curious. These are what most suit her coloring and skin tone, so use them as a guide.
If you would like a personal consultation with me (either in person or virtually) to get more specific tips for your face, you can find out more information, right on the Consult with Kristen page.
