A lot of Mothers put themselves through a great deal of pressure to look their best on the wedding day. Deciding on what colour to wear, choosing the style of outfit and accessories is enough on its own, on top of which there is the makeup to consider.
Fortunately make-up today is the best it has ever been with types for all skin including mature and sensitive skin. It’s important to remember you don’t want to change the way you look instead focus on making the most of yourself.
It may be that all you need to do is update your existing make-up with special light defusing products to minimise lines and enhance the skin tone.
The foundation that has staying power will keep you looking good all day. Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 is ideal for special occasions. It keeps skin looking great through heat, humidity and doesn’t fade or rub off on clothes. This is part of the Estee Lauder’s best selling range of make-up.
If you don’t usually wear foundation you can use a concealer to lighten under-eye areas and cover blemishes. A light dusting of translucent powder will reduce any shine for fresher younger-looking skin.
It is a wedding so in case there are a few tears best choose a waterproof mascara; a brown/black mix is a good shade for a softer look. Apply to the top lashes for upward-lifting appearance and to open the eyes up. A peachy blusher works beautifully on mature skin and will give a warm glow.
A light lipstick is perfect for daytime you can go deeper for the evening reception. Try using a lip liner in the same colour as the lipstick to define the outline; this is will also help prevent lipstick feathering.
Matt eyeshadows in subtle shades are attractive and do not exaggerate any lines making eyes appear more youthful. The end result will be a fresh make-up look rather than a heavy over applied ageing look.
