Skin Care & Makeup for Women Over 50

The “beauty regimen” for our aging skin is different from what we did in our 30′s and 40′s. Wrinkles and sagging skin are more evident, our lips seem to be disappearing and our eyebrows are thinning.

Following the right skin care routine and makeup tips for women over 50 can keep the skin looking healthier with a youthful glow, and the gentle self-esteem boost can do wonders for your overall confidence.

Here, Leslie Roan transforms me from no makeup at all to “ready to go out on the town.” Leslie shares some great makeup tips, from basic skin care to how to properly apply blush, eye shadow and lipstick.


Caught Without My Makeup! Pre-makeover, Leslie and I discuss going out without makeup. |

Basic Skin Care for Women Over 50.   Proper cleansing & moisturizer provide the perfect palette for applying makeup. |

Primer and Foundation. Primer helps foundation go on smoothly and stay put during the day.  |

Foundation: Choosing the Right Color.  The right foundation for women over 50 includes choosing the right shade.   |

Powder: Types & Application.  Proper application of powder keeps you from looking “old lady cakey.”  |

Applying Blush.  Use these techniques to give yourself a beautiful glow, not “clown face.”  |

Eyeshadow.  Make your eyes “pop” without overdoing the eyes shadow. Learn the single most important step here.  |

Applying Eyeliner & Mascara.  Eyeliner and mascara give the finishing touches to define the eyes. |

Shaping and Coloring your Eyebrows.  Having well-shaped and colored brows provide the frame for the eyes, and can take a few years off your look. |

Beautiful Lips.  As we age, our lips get thinner. See how to make them look fuller in the finishing touches of my makeover. |
