For mature skin – that is if you are elderly, adopt a minimalist approach to makeup as less is more. The closer to natural you are, the better for you as soft tones gives a more youthful appeal.

My mother (pictured left) and I enjoy trying out makeup to achieve a much youthful look. She is a grand mother now – thanks to me! so finding the right look has become imperative. Here are my findings.
Liquid foundation sits better on mature skin than any other foundation that I have tried. For my mother above, I used Black Up liquid foundation. I found out too that using a foundation brush helped the foundation to sink into the skin by using circular motions, which prevented lines or caking.
I found that using my fingers to apply concealer and eyeshadow base achieved better result that using a brush because by using my fingers to dab them on, the skin warmed up to the cream. Even after applying foundation, I still used my fingers to pat around the eyes as it prevents creasing and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Try not to use too much shimmery eyeshadows or gold as highlighter for mature skin as it further accentuates the appearance of wrinkles.
