I love trying new lip color. I recently tried Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Rose Twist.
They have several colors to choose from and I plan to get a couple more to wear this spring!
Now that winter is officially over and most of us are warming up, this is a great time to go through our makeup and get rid of what we’re not using.
I also like to get a makeover this time of the year at Sephora or Ulta or any of the makeup places in the mall. I like to change my foundation too!
Some reminders for women over 40:
Although each season brings new trends with makeup, most of them are not things that we need to wear.
Silver eyeshadow swiped all over your lid is a fashion trend this season, but not for us! This is too much for our age group.
Remember we don’t need to over do our makeup on our eyes or lips. A natural look with a hint of color is best.
One thing I see a lot of older women doing is matching their eye shadow color to what they are wearing. This is a no-no and will definitely age you.
Although there are a lot of pretty eyeshadow colors we really need to stick with a shade of brown. Brown eye shadow is always current and appropriate. All you need to do is find the right shade of brown that works for you.
There are several shades of brown: warm brown (caramel, terracotta), neutral brown (chocolate, raisin), or cool brown (coffee, plum).
Keep your lipsticks light too! Dark lipsticks definitely age us.
Do you do anything different with your makeup in spring and summer? Do you ever get a makeover?
(Last year I did a whole series for women over 40 you can find it here.)
