Mature Makeup: Green & Autumnal

For Mature Makeup you want to stay away from a lot of shimmer & stick with more matte, soft colors. Use complimentary colors for a pop if desired. The right foundation with the right finish is imperative for mature skin. Too dry a finish will cling to patches and creases and make the skin appear more tired and old. Too luminous a finish can break up around creases give an uneven appearance to the skin. Too much shimmer from color products can highlight areas you don't want highlighted! Balance, softness, and complimentary colors are key to a beautiful, fresh looking face. Be sure to have the right skin care too! That is the most important component to a beautiful makeup look.
