It has always irked me when I hear a women say “oh no, I can’t wear that I’m too old”
The fact of the matter is, you are never to old to have fun with your make up, or too old to wear a bold lip, to old for shimmer, too old for colour or, to young for that matter. There are no rules when it comes to make up, that being said there are still ways to best enhance your features for where you are in your life. You can still wear sparkle or colour as you age, the only thing that changes is placement. Rather then lash to brow application, you highlight areas such as the lash line or inner corner with subtle sparkle/shimmer. Colours that have a satin finish where the pigment is finely milled are not shimmer, they are just a different texture of shadow and can still be worn on the lid. Bolder colours or pops of colour can be worn, the level of which you express such colour is dependent on the individual and can be tailored to you by a makeup artist. A bold lip is classic and looks good on any woman of any age it does not age you, but rather add an air of class and sophistication. Studies show that when you wear a bolder colour on the lip, the eye is drawn to that area when you are speaking to others and people will pay more attention to what you have to say.
The bottom line is you don’t have to follow anyone else’s rules, have fun, be bold, be playful and when in doubt consult with a make up professional.
