Tip 8: Dust on your favorite blush but if you’re over 40, avoid the apple of your cheek. Suck in cheeks and brush along the concave upward toward the middle of the ear.
Tip 9: Balance out your look with a great lip polish. If you have bold eyeglass frames, you need a strong lip color. For metal or rimless frames, neutral or light colors will work. Bonus tip for women over 50: avoid ruby red, blue tones, or dark lipstick that may emphasize lines and wrinkles around lips. Nobody likes that look.
Tip 10: Resist matchy-matchy look with makeup and frames. You don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard.
Tip 11: Invest in a good magnifying mirror that enlarges at least 10 times. You can find a variety of styles at beauty supply shops or your nearest drug store.
Tip 12: Choose a frame that complements your face. Most optometrists will help you choose the right frame. If you look great, they look great. If you feel the need for a second opinion, bring a trusted friend that mirrors your style. Resist dragging Grandma along for the ride. She means well but while practical is good, we also want a style that flatters us to the max!
