As we get older, the color fades from our skin, lips, eyes and hair. Here are some makeup tips:
+ Don't be afraid of bright colors, even if you think deep or pastel colors look best. A dash of color can make you appear happy, enthusiastic, optimistic and alert to others.
+ Turn up the color just a tad with a more vibrant lipstick and blush to avoid looking washed out. African-Americans may not see a change in skin tone until their hair turns white.
+ Wear your glasses when applying makeup.
+ Use a light touch with makeup; caked-on makeup settles into lines, making them more obvious.
+ Avoid frosted makeup; look for makeup with a dewy consistency.
+ Use plenty of moisturizer if your skin feels dry.
+ Neutral eye shadow looks the best.
+ Give light or sparse eyebrows definition with a brow pencil or powder.
+ Black mascara looks too harsh; try dark brown or charcoal instead.
+ Outline your lips with a lip pencil to prevent color from bleeding into the fine lines around your mouth. Avoid dark lipcolor.
+ Use concealor to camouflage shadows under the eye and skin discoloration.
