Are you all feeling well, doing good, and sharing your joie de vivre with others? I hope so!
Earlier this week, I mentored a student who mentioned that her husband did not like makeup. In this attitude, the student's husband resembles most men. Most men prefer a "natural look," but most women, particularly those with skin conditions or those over the age of thirty or so, need a bit of cosmetic assistance. What's a girl to do?
Learning your color season and choosing flattering colors will help to avoid the look of heavy makeup as will choosing a foundation base that matches your skin and is a proper formulation for your skin. Another important factor is changing your makeup techniques as your face changes and as styles change. A woman with a feminine persona need not follow fashion slavishly, but she should update her look as needed.
One relatively new makeup technique is called the "no makeup" makeup, consisting of a matching (if any) foundation, mascara, neutral (if any) eyeshadow, light (if any) blush, and a neutral lip. I am including a few tutorials from YouTube that are overtly labeled "no makeup" makeup as well as one that meets my definition of the term. I chose tutorials featuring women with a variety of coloring, but per force, most of the women who upload makeup tutorials are on the young side. We seasoned "fascinators" can learn from the young!
I hope that my little "woman-to-woman" ideas have helped.
PS: The tutorials may include ads, but I do not profit from them. Enjoy!
