Makeup looks are more than achievable at any age. Whether you’re looking for the best foundation for older skin, the best concealer for mature skin, or just makeup tips for mature skin, you’ll find it all here. Just keep reading to find out everything you need to know about makeup and mature skin.
HYDRATION IS KEY
As skin ages, it becomes dryer, so it’s recommended that any foundation routine begins with moisturised skin.
Begin your routine with our Pure Shots Lines Away Serum, which contains 0.01% hyaluronic acid and iris root extract, and helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines while hydrating and comforting your skin too.
Alternatively, try our Pure Shots Perfect Plumper Cream, which contains orange blossom extract and ribose, and melts into skin to nourish and plump with moisture. Both our cream and serum are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Don’t forget to use a primer, like our Touche Éclat Blur Primer. It’s designed to boost your skin’s radiance and create a smooth base for makeup, blurring the appearance of imperfections too.
Coming in an illuminating gel format that’s easy to use, all you need to do is apply one pump onto the back of your hand, and then with either our foundation brush or your fingers apply the primer with gentle sweeping motions outward from the centre of the face. Leave the gel to melt into your skin for 10 seconds before applying foundation.
FOUNDATION FOR MATURE SKIN
If you use a foundation, a hydrating product is best. For full coverage and a 24-hour matte finish, as well as protection from UV rays, try our All Hours Foundation SPF20. The formula is waterproof and transfer-resistant, with no need to touch up, and it comes in 40 shades to suit different skin tones.
Another option is our Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation SPF22, which gives up to 24 hours of breathable coverage for a natural healthy glow. It offers a weightless, non-cakey feel and finish, and comes in up to 40 shades.
No matter the foundation you choose, it’s best not to apply the layers on too thick – when it comes to foundation for mature skin, less is more. Focus on your main areas of concern first, before blending outwards, and try not to apply to more expressive areas, like smile or forehead lines. Remember to use a makeup sponge or brush too.
CONCEALER FOR MATURE SKIN
If you’re looking for the best concealer for mature skin, you may want to try a pen like our Touche Éclat Illuminating Pen, which helps to brighten features naturally while also helping improve dullness and reduce signs of fatigue. For added coverage, try our Touche Éclat High Cover Concealer, a high-coverage concealer that hides dark circles and uneven skin tone.
When using concealer, it’s best to use a dabbing or patting technique rather than rubbing, so that you don’t risk pulling delicate skin.
EYE MAKEUP FOR OLDER WOMEN
You can’t forget your eyes, of course! Our Couture Liquid Eyeliner allows you to create a defined, no-smudge look that’s long-lasting – with an extra slim, precise felt tip, you reduce the risk of pulling on delicate eye skin too.
Be mindful of tugging the corner of the eye, as this can stretch the skin, and it’s best to stay away from lining the lower lash line, as this can create the appearance of smaller eyes.
You may want to use a white-coloured eye kohl eyeliner along the lower waterline, as this can give you the appearance of brighter, more awake eyes, making it ideal eye makeup for older women.
LIPSTICK FOR MATURE SKIN
Finish off your look with lip liner, like our Dessin Des Lèvres Lip Liner, a creamy matte liner that gives you up to six hours of wear, and will define and shape your lips.
Alternatively, why not consider our Candy Glaze lipstick, which offers the shine of a gloss with the care of a balm? The formula offers up to eight hours of nourishment, with 78% caring ingredients including pomegranate extract, cold pressed mango oil, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid.
If any of these makeup catches your eye, you can find out what you’ll look like wearing them when you head to our virtual try-on page.
