To me, old age is always fifteen years older
than I am.
~ Bernard Baruch
Years and years ago, when a woman's hair turned gray, she immediately
thought she was "old" and stopped doing the thing regarding her looks
that she did when she was younger. This is particularly true when it came
to makeup. Thankfully, women today take better care of themselves and have
endless pride in their appearance. There are certain tips and guidelines
to follow when applying makeup when your hair is gray...
Eyebrows...I'm sure we've all seen this at one time or another... Hair
that is white or gray and eyebrows that have been penciled in with the
original natural hair color shade...DON'T DO IT!!!
A better choice would be to use a subtle shade of gray or smoky gray...
Neatly groomed eyebrows are also a must and the best way to apply eyebrow
color is to brush the brows downward, apply the color, then brush the
brows back up to have a natural blending of the color which will give you
a very nice, natural look. Use a brown or dark brown mascara and try to
stay away from the black, which may be too intense for the rest of the
Daily skin care is always a must, no matter how young or old you are. As
a woman gets older, her skin becomes drier. A lightweight facial cleanser
won't "pull" the skin and will gently cleanse the face. A toner can be
used as long as it's mild and because of the age of the skin and its
dryness, the moisturizer should be a little heavier and rich in
emollients for the face. Skin is never too old to have sunscreen on it!!!
