Getting Old and Looking Good
- Hits: 5871
The next problem area with mature women is the eye. Often the eyes are accompanied by crows feet and dark rings. says Verma “Though there are procedures that help reduce such problems, as far as make up goes mature women should avoid dark eye make up. The lashes and the brow begin to thin out so one should choose a brown shade as opposed to black. I’d advise the sue of eye pencils rather than eye liners, but if a liner is used, it should be smudged.”
“Smudging gives a soft rather than hard look, which is what such women should aim to achieve. The aim should not be to project youth but to look pleasantly flattering. The idea is to work with nature rather than against it.”After the eyes come the lips. “The most common problem is that the lip line droops. At this time it is important to pinks and lights browns rather than maroons. Lining the lips is a complete no–no. Instead one should blend the lip colors with the fingertips rather than use brushes. Also one should stay away from the matt look as it tends to make the skin look dry and dull. A medium gloss is just right.” One’s techniques are put to a real test when it comes to using the blusher. says Verma “One should use a cream blusher rather than powders. Unlike the young where we do a lot of cutting, mature women should apply a blusher on the apple of the cheek. The idea is to give a happy, well blended look”.
The other thing to watch out for is hair. since anyway the gray begins to make its presence felt, it is always better that one avoids the pitch black of the younger days. Says Verma “One should switch to mahogany or browns as that will give one a softer look”. With a little help from the pots and paints, it is possible to look good and age be damned.
