November Makeup Look for Over Forty
In keeping with this month's beautiful cover look and
color theme, it's a light, more transparent, more subtle
look, freshening with a youthful pick-me-up. Leave
the darker shades for the younger women; as we age, we
need lighter, uplifting makeup looks and applications.
To get this month's look follow the easy steps below.
After applying any concealer and foundation, add
blusher. Start with a neutral beige/bronze
(for contour) at center of cheekbone and draw
back toward hairline. Blend with sponge to
assure a smooth look. Next add a light
brick color above this on top of cheekbone.
Blend and smooth towards hairline and into the
neutral shade below. Highlight top and bottom
with a softly shimmering pink or peach and
blend. Dust with loose finishing powder.
Fully line top
lid with a medium brown eye pencil, smudge to
soften. Line outer bottom lid from inner
iris to outer edge. Smudge to soften.
begin with a pale beige over inner half of top
lid and along inner bridge of nose. Add a
taupe/mink brown to outer half of crease.
Blend the two softly with emphasis on the light
beige, rather than the darker shade(s).
Highlight with an off-white, cream-colored
shade. Blend up toward brow bone.
For lips, a light
brown gloss top and bottom, careful not to get
too dark on top lip. Add a dot of white or
highlight or clear gloss in center of bottom
This look will give you a beautifully soft, yet uplifting glow in a
very neutral and workable fall shade.
