Life after 40 rules: You no longer whisper insecurities you may have experienced in your 20s and 30s; you are generally more comfortable and comfortable with your own skin. Speaking of skin, however, figuring out how to organize your skincare routine is one area that may require a bit of consideration.
By the time we are 40, we begin to notice lines around the mouth, forehead, and eyes, and our makeup often begins to sit just across our faces. But changing our makeup bags and our tasks to suit our new needs is easier said than done. We are not all professional makeup professionals, after all, and understanding the perfect products and techniques used in skin aging can be a serious challenge .
Fortunately, we have the perfect celebrity makeup artist to help you navigate Enter: Jamie Greenberg a Hollywood makeup artist whose handmade is located in the likes of age 40 – with icons such as Gwyneth Paltrow Rashida Jones, Chelsea Handler, Maya Rudolph, Lauren Graham, and Julie Bowen. Greenberg is also the creator of J amie & # 39; s Swag Bag a monthly box of curated makeup and skincare found.
We asked Greenberg to share some of the most common makeup mistakes she sees women over 40 doing – along with some tricks that will instantly enhance your makeup game. Keep scrolling to see his tips.
No matter how expert you are, the best makeup in the world can still look dull and soft without healthy skin underneath. Take it from Greenberg who says he sees many women over 40 expecting their makeup to do all the work for them.
"Many women do not hydrate or have a full skin care lifestyle," she said. "I strongly suggest looking for products that nourish your skin. It is necessary so that makeup can look more natural on the skin. "
Dryness and fine lines and wrinkles are often key concerns for skin aging (although the type and issue of each skin is different). Below, check out a basic skincare routine to test if you want to beat and de-wrinkle your skin without too much extra effort.
The bad composite foundation is it looks dull at all, but it is obvious on older skin. " Many women do not notice the foundation with their hands, and often miss spots or create demarcation lines ," Jamie said. "It's very important to spend your time and put it evenly."
Instead of slapping the foundation with your fingers, try a thick foundation brush, such as Rodial The Airbrush Foundation Brush ($ 55) or EcoTools Wonder Cover complexion Brush ($ 9) or – Jamie's favorite – a classic Beautyblender (don't forget to pick it up) for flawless application.
What happens when you get used to the look and products you use since college? One day you wake up, 20 years later, you are in the last tree of an old lipstick, and your whole appearance is very dated.
"We don't keep the same clothes or wear the same thing every day. The same thing goes for skincare and makeup," Greenberg said. "If you're old, throw it away." Greenberg said he has friends who have had shadow pans for 10 years or more. “Not only is it clean, but it also looks bad on the skin,” she says. "I'm all for a signature style, but it's fun to change things up."
This does not have to be a total adjustment. Make a simple change! For example, try navy liner instead of black, a coral lip instead of bare, or a cloudy foundation instead of matte. Experiment in filling your browsers with a rich fiber gel instead of a waxy pencil, or even go with colored mascara. "Small changes make a big difference," Greenberg said.
Sounds easy, but says Greenberg that learning to curl your lashes should be if you are not able to. This is a really simple, instant way to make the eye look brighter and lively as if it had never happened in the last two decades. Shu Uemura’s iconic lash curler makes the process completely goof-proof.
The dark circles and bags under the eyes are concerned for almost all over 40. And while hiding works like a Band-Aid, treating your under-eyes with products made up of active ingredients such as caffeine, peptides, and chemical exfoliators will enhance your makeup. "Eye masks are a weekly occurrence for me with diversity," Greenberg said. "Do it while you do your hair for a special event or if you feel tired. This game changer!" Pro tip: Store your eyecare products in the refrigerator so that when you apply them, the freezer will work to ship any bags.
Not a makeup tip in the classic meaning, but according to Greenberg, a disturbing haircut, style, and color can do twice what makeup can do. And try to do your hair before your makeup – will make less stress in the process. "Hair can take away a lot of stress on the face. When I do my hair, makeup is easier!" Greenberg said.
