When we lived in California my job had me in contact with a lot of executives of companies and some of them were well known beauty companies such as Elizabeth Arden, Estee Lauder, Aveda and many others.I am a real question person and loved getting beauty information from these women. One thing that I learned is that no matter what age you are you should never color your hair darker than your natural color because it will look harsh and not very flattering. This is even more true the older you get. As you age you should even use a shade lighter than your natural color. While we lived in California I was able to have my hair colored with an awesome natural hair color out of Napa. I don’t like using chemicals on my hair and Henna hasn’t worked that well for me so I am just letting the gray show now!!
Another tip for women 30 and older is not to use dark or bright red lipstick. It will accentuate lines around the mouth and be very unflattering. You should go with soft colors that brighten your face. Eye shadows that are soft and muted will bring out the color of your eyes better than bright loud colors.
Your foundation should match your skin tone and not be to dark because it will look unnatural and your blush should just give your face a nice hint of color. So many women tend to have a heavy hand in the foundation and blush department they said. One thing that I would add to this is please be a label reader when you are buying cosmetics. There are so many awful chemicals that are allowed to be put in them. Know your ingredients and what they are made from because we absorb what we put on our skin. Do you already use any of these tips and do you have any other ones that you could share with us?
