As a woman ages, it is necessary for her to adjust her make-up routine to enhance features and minimise the appearance of fine lines and other changes in the skin. Women over the age of 50 should apply make-up to draw attention to their personal beauty and away from age-related skin problems.

- Eyeliner Pencil
- Eyelid primer
- Eyebrow pencil
- Lip moisturiser
- Lip stick

- Neutral lip liner (optional)
Apply a light diffusing primer before applying foundation. Cover with a mousse or cream foundation. This will provide moisture to over-50 skin, which has a tendency to be dry.
Apply a highlighting colour of foundation. Use the colour just underneath the brow, at the top of the cheekbone and around the mouth. The highlighting colour will brighten the skin and create a lifting effect.
Draw a thin line above the top lashes with an eyeliner pencil. Slightly smudge the line at the corners of the eye. Women over 50 should choose lighter eyeliner colours to create the appearance of a wider, more youthful looking eye.
Use a light diffusing eyelid primer before applying eye shadow. Don't use an eye shadow with too much shimmer; however, shadow with a light shimmer is fine. Finish with a medium brown to soft black mascara on the eyelashes.
Fill in sparse eyebrows with a light to medium brown pencil. Fill in fuller brows with powder.
Apply moisturiser to lips before using lipstick. Cover with a light gloss. Avoid using lip liner or apply a neutral liner. Visible lip liner can have an ageing effect.
