OVER-40 BEAUTY: ADD A COLOUR POP THIS SPRING

By 
This post was originally published on this site

 

With Spring just around the corner, it’s not just your wardrobe that makes the seasonal change but also your beauty routine.

For an instant beauty lift, swap winter’s muted tones for a pop of colour. A quick and easy way to add colour is to change your lip colour.

Get in on the Spring beauty trend and focus on a pretty pink lip.

Pink lipstick is anti-aging and flatters all skin tones. The right shade will brighten a dull complexion, make your lips appear fuller and give your face a lovely and healthy glow.

Pinks range from rose, berry, coral, dusty pink and fuschia and the trick is to choose the right shade for your skin tone and colouring.  A few tips to consider when buying your pink lipstick:

  • Finding a happy balance is key – a too dark pink will dull your face and a too light lipstick will make you look pale and washed out
  • Creamy, moisturing lipsticks are best for mature skins as too-dry or too-matte formulas will emphasise creases and look dull
  • A formula that has a velvety texture with a hint of sheen is sure to provide a youthful glow
  • Get professional help BUT try before you buy – step outside in natural light to ensure the colour is right for you
