It’s Time to Embrace Natural Makeup for Older Women (Video)

By Margaret Manning November 29, 2014 Beauty

What are the benefits of embracing natural makeup for older women? This is the question that I asked Ariane Poole, during our last interview. Want to know what the only 10 items are that you need in your makeup bag? Then, this interview is for you!

Exploring the World of Natural Makeup for Older Women

Most older women have them. They come in bright colors, intriguing patterns and fun floral designs. They are filled with items that we paid for but seldom use. In fact, chances are you haven’t seen the complete contents of yours since you first filled it. Yes, I’m talking about your makeup bag!

In this episode of the Sixty and Me Show, I sit down with professional makeup artist, Ariane Poole to get her best tips for how to detox your makeup back and sort the truly useful items from the dead weight. We also discuss the benefits of embracing natural makeup that enhances our look without damaging our skin.

You may remember Ariane from our makeup for older women video series. She is fabulous! Enjoy the show!

Is it Time to Embrace New Makeup Products and Formulations?

If you watch this interview, I promise that Ariane will help you to let your old makeup go. She starts by helping us to understand what is no longer usable, or even unhealthy. She goes on to explain that giving up old makeup is not a “waste.”

On the contrary, cleaning out your makeup back gives you to the freedom to say “yes” to the items that will really make a difference.

She recommends trying some of the new lighter foundation formulations, primers, crème blushers and heated eyelash curlers on the market.

Later in the interview, Ariane shares a secret about why we feel like we need to have so many tubes of lipstick – and why none of them ever seem to look the same on our lips as they do on the tube. If you are ready to start simplifying and decluttering your life, this video is a great place to start. Ariane is a good friend and I always have so much fun recording with her. I hope that you enjoy the show too!
