Makeup is an extraordinary powerful tool that has empowered many and continues to do so.There are thousands of channels and tutorials available at a click, promising various different looks using different products, some expensive some affordable. But exactly how many of these channels and tutorials cover a tutorial for aged skin? You know the answer, not many.
Is there any sort of guarantee that as an MUA you will only get young clients? Of course not, as an artist you should be skilled and equipped enough to be able to glam up a client of any age and colour. So let’s learn some points that we must keep in mind while doing makeup on aged skin:
THE SIMPLER THE BETTER
You must understand that an aged woman is not getting makeup to look young but to look presentable. The natural the better, should be your mantra while doing makeup on aged skin.
USE LIQUID FOUNDATION
Liquid foundation is not only easy to apply but does not easily crack too, considering there are wrinkles and fine lines on an aged skin already. Liquid foundation will make your job a bit easier whereas any other cake/cream foundation might make the base look cakey.
LESS IS MORE
You must swear by this formula while glamming up an aged skin client. There’s absolutely no need of overdoing the eye or blush and over lining the lips for that matter. The fewer products you use the more beautiful your client will look, unless of course if your client wants a particular kind of makeup then you must deliver accordingly.
REMEMBER, WRINKLES ARE ENGRAVED SMILES
So don’t try to conceal that engraved smile but use it to make that beautiful wrinkled skin look even more amazing with your art.
