I am looking for make up tips. I am a 68 year old white female stage 4 cancer survivor. Currently I am in remission and I care what I look like. In my working years I had to dress in business attire (neutral colors). My question is my make up, I have never worn much to start with. My eyes are hazel green, I have a fair complexion and my hair is white with a pastel blond color. The hair is very thin, was very thick before cancer. I keep it very short. What shade or shades of lipstick and eye shadow would you suggest? I just need a little perk!
If you have freckles you should opt for a deep coral but if your skin is clear then try a tomato red or soft plum lipstick.
The main issue is more how big your lips are. If they are very thin then opt for a natural coloured lip gloss and if they are lined around the edges then use a wax product that prevents lipstick seepage.
Remember, after applying a strong lip colour then put your finger in you mouth and draw it out. Whatever lipstick rubs off is what might have ended up on your teeth.
Perhaps tint your eyelashes and eyebrows because, as we age, the more contrasting our facial hair is (not counting menopausal beards!) the younger we appear.
Hope this helps and have fun! x
