In this makeup tips video for women over 60, we walk through a 5-minute makeover that shows how to apply makeup for mature skin without a lot of hassle.

Makeup for Mature Skin is About Looking and Feeling Great

Ariane Poole is a celebrity makeup artist, who is focused on positive, not anti-aging. She has been working with me on a series of beauty videos to introduce older women to new makeup products and techniques designed to make us look and feel great at any age.

One thing that I have heard from many women in the community is most of us don’t have as much time as we want. We are busy with jobs, hobbies, family, grandchildren and education. For many, makeup is simply not a high priority. So, I asked Ariane to transform my look in 5 minutes.

She did an amazing job and I hope that this video will show you that having fun with makeup doesn’t have to take time away from the important things in your life. You can look and feel your best in 5 minutes a day. Enjoy the show!

Here are a few of the tips that we discuss in this video for choosing and finding makeup for mature skin.

Step 1: Primer

Ariane first applied Ariane Poole Tinted Primer in Medium. This product combines primer, tinted moisturizer and foundation all in one. It can be applied with fingers or a brush.

Step 2: Concealer

Ariane applied Ariane Poole Mineral Illuminating Pen in Medium, low under my eyes, just on the top of my cheekbone. This technique gives definition, but does not take away attention from the eyes.

Step 3: Eyebrows

Ariane Poole Brow Tint Blonde was applied as an “eyebrow mascara,” giving a definition to my eyebrows, but not doing anything overpowering.

Step 4: Eye Shadow

For eye shadow, we used Ariane Poole Shine in Stellar, a crème to powder shadow in a long lasting neutral copper shade. Ariane applied it on the centre of my eyelids, not extending too far past the edge of my eyes.

Step 5: Eye Liner

Ariane Poole Super Wear Gel Pencil in Mystic was then applied to base of my top lashes. This liner pencil was simple to apply and added amazing definition to my eyes. Ariane placed just a little liner on the bottom lashes as well.

Step 6: Mascara

Ariane applied Ariane Poole Luxury Mascara, in Black. This formulation was intended to plump up my lashes and make them full and lush, even for a daytime look.

Step 7: Cheeks

Ariane Poole Cream to Powder Blush in Whisper was applied to the “apple” of my cheek – not too high because as Ariane explained that makes the face look droopy.

Step 8: Lips

Lining my lips on the outside rim with Ariane Poole Teaberry Lip Pencil was followed by a gentle application of Ariane Poole Luxury Lip Gloss in Blossom Rose.

Ariane was able to perform a magical transformation in just 5 minutes! This really showed me that applying makeup doesn’t need to take forever. Even you and I, with our busy schedules, can find 5 minutes to get the look we want. Please watch the video to see all of Ariane’s makeup secrets and techniques.
