As you age, your lips can lose fullness and form a thinner appearance.
So when it comes to choosing lipstick for mature lips, shade selection is vital to make lips look fuller. If you love a bright lip by all means go for it, however for a universally flattering flush, neutral shades are generally more flattering and youthful – and choosing one staple shade for day and night makes your daily beauty routine quicker and easier!
Beauty tip: The first step to healthy, fuller lips is to apply a hydrating balm daily. Keep one in your bag and apply as needed throughout the day.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT NEUTRAL FOR YOUR SKIN TONE
- Neutrals and nude shades for mature women are completely different to younger women which are usually light and beige in tone – and on mature skins are very unforgiving and can make teeth look yellow.
- Mature nudes and neutrals are soft shades include caramel, peaches, roses that provide a natural flush to the lip (rather than a ‘painted on’ effect).
- The general rule of thumb to find the perfect neutral or nude shade, choose a colour that is two shades darker than your natural lip.
Best neutrals for fair and fair skin tones include peaches, apricots, light or rose pinks.
MEDIUM SKIN TONES
Beige nudes similar to a dusty rose will flatter medium tones. Avoid cool undertones that run the risk of washing out your complexion.
OLIVE OR LIGHT BROWN
Caramel-toned nudes with peachy bases complement olive or light brown skin tones.
DARK SKIN TONES
Warm shades flatter dark skins as does nude/neutral shades in the plum family. Avoid matte formulas and opt for creamy, hydrating or gloss finishes.
