Aging Gracefully - How to Choose the Right Makeup For Aging Skin

There is no fountain of youth and in reality there really is no true anti-aging agent or procedure that is going to keep the hands of the clock from continuing to take it's toll on us. Women especially see huge changes in their skin as they grow older. It will become more fragile and a lot thinner than when they were younger and it tends to dry easier, discolor, wrinkles and lines form and skin irritations arise a lot easier. This can be hard for a lot of women to deal with and sometimes simply cannot be corrected. You can though, age more gracefully with picking the right makeup for your aging skin.

One of the first thing you need to do in finding the correct makeup for your skin is to understand what kind of skin that you have. You need to figure out whether it's dry, or if it's oily or maybe a combination of both dry and oily.

After you have figured out exactly what kind of skin you have you will need to add this into the equation when you start making the decisions for your makeup and skin care products. When you choose the correct item for your skin type it's going to make a world of difference in how the makeup goes on and just how long it's going to last as well.

You should be looking for makeup that is lightweight and states what kind of skin type that it works best on. It's probably a good idea if you can go somewhere that will allow you to try samples of the makeup before you actually buy the product. They are expensive but you sure don't want to be stuck with something that isn't going to work for you and your skin.

You need to always include some sort of moisturizer a long with your makeup. Even if your skin is not the dry type you still should apply some sort of moisturizer underneath whatever makeup you decide upon purchasing. This will actually keep your makeup from clogging the pores of your skin.

Include an anti-aging concealer along with your makeup too. This will try and hide flaws as well as any dark circles there might be under your eyes. Make sure when you pick one that it is a lighter shade than that of of your natural skin color.

You then should pick an anti-aging type of makeup foundation that you can get as close as possible to the actual color of your own skin. You need to also consider the amounts of lines and wrinkles you have that the foundation is going to need to be lighter. You want the foundation to blend in and not just sit on top of the skin. You need to avoid using any type of spray foundation or foundation mouse. You really don't need to put the foundation all over your face, just where it is needed so that's why it's so important that it matches your skin tone.

After you have the foundation you need to find some sort of blush that is as close to your skin color when you are actually blushing. Powder blushes are not nearly as good for aging skin as are the stains and cream blushes. Never blend your blush into your hairline. You should put the blush onto the apples of your cheeks and maybe just a little beyond that, but, nothing more.

When looking for eyeshadow it is never a good idea to get eye shadow that matches the color of your eyes, instead you need to find colors that will accent or complement the color of your eyes. You should not use any shadows that are glittery, that type of shadow is not good for skin that is aging. Do not put the shadow all up to your brow, that was OK for when you were younger but does not look as good now that the eyes are beginning to age. You can however use a darker color near the eye lashes and then just above that put a lighter color. You should also make sure that you don't put as much eye shadow on as you did ten years ago.

As for lipsticks you should try to avoid any that glitter and really stay away from the super bright colors and stay more with the lighter and more neutral colors. You don't want to draw attention to your face but compliment it.
