Makeup Artist and Beauty Blogger, Kendra Stanton stopped by to show us how easy it is to adapt the new fall makeup trends to women in their 30's, 40's and 50's. You'll find more great beauty information on Kendra's blog, Citizens of Beauty.
30's: One of the hottest trends this fall is a nude, natural and clean look. When you are in
your 30's, you can still pretty much get away with most makeup looks that are trending. Since you
don't have much to cover up and aren't as worried about fine lines and wrinkles, you can get
away with wearing less. However, you can still pull off the sophisticated bold red lip that is also in style
40's: Women often think that when they hit their 40's they need to tone down their makeup. I disagree. Fine lines and wrinkles are typically just beginning to turn up around the eye area, which means you can and should still play up your eyes. Try multi-toned metallic shadows on your eyes in chocolate, espresso, and caviar (from Jouer Cosmetics) pared with a nude lip.
5o's: This is when you need to be careful and picky about how you do your makeup. Using too
much can make you look older by emphasizing more fine lines and wrinkles. Try using matte
neutral shadow on the eyelids, emphasizing the outside corners to add a lift, and then use a
bolder, medium bright lip to add color and balance.
