Wearing lipstick that’s overwhelmingly dark can make you look a little thin-lipped when usually what you really want to do is make your lips look fuller. So ditch those dark colors and go for lighter shades instead. As you age and your lips start to thin, wearing dark lipstick will only intensify the thinning, which you definitely don’t want.
Instead, wear lipgloss over your lipstick. That little extra shine will reflect light and make your lips appear thicker than they actually are. Nowadays, you can even find volumizing lipgloss that works twice as well. When all else fails, you can always try the Kylie Jenner lip kit.
Chunky shoes include Crocs, which are not okay. Those shoes were originally made for doctors so they can wear something that is light, supportive, and breathable during their long shifts. If you aren't a doctor in the middle of a shift, there is no excuse for you to wear them.
If you want to dress to impress, don't even think about wearing chunky shoes, they'll only make you look clownish. While you might want a more stable shoe with ample ankle support, that doesn't mean you have to settle for unsightly orthopedic footwear. There are plenty of options out there that are both stylish and healthy.
Years ago, finding a shade of foundation that was the exact match for your skin was nearly impossible. This drove people into finding alternatives such as baby powder that was much lighter than their own skin tone and gave them a ghostly look. A ghostly look you definitely don't want on yourself.
We're all for embracing your pale skin but don't overdo it by slathering on foundation and powder that are two shades lighter than your skin. You want your face to look as natural as possible, so try to get a shade of foundation as close to your natural skin color, then add a bit of color with blush and lipstick.
Wearing a silky scarf around your neck may feel chic and elegant, but it will also draw unwanted attention to your neck area, which women of a certain age usually try to avoid. And let's not put aside the fact that you might be mistaken for a 60s airline stewardess.
If you have a nice silk scarf you want to flaunt, there are ways to do it that don't include wearing it around your neck. One way would be to wrap it around your shoulders like a shawl. Another way would be to tie it to the strap of your handbag. A third way would be to string it through your belt loops and wear it around your waist.
Applying a good quality concealer that's suited for mature skin will definitely help get rid of those dark and dreary shadows under your eyes. However, if it's not of good quality or not the right color for you, it will also accentuate those fine lines you have around your eyes.
When concealing those wrinkles and fine lines, start with a tiny amount of concealer so it won't look plastered on, and apply it in thin layers to make sure it will blend well. Otherwise, you could be running the risk of making the lines look deeper and more apparent than they really are.
