Can I let you in on a secret? I turned 50 last year, and my tried and true beauty products and routines are no longer working like a charm! As we evolve and transition into different stages in our lives, we need to make some shifts. You have to ensure that everything you do daily meets your needs, lifestyle, and goals. Are your beauty and self-care routines not working for you anymore? Keep reading to learn the 5 beauty secrets every polished woman should know!
Your girl had to do some research this year, and I had to make some updates so I could put my best self forward. I’m all about being a Polished woman with minimal effort. I hate wasting time and stressing in the morning. Creating routines that are easy and maintainable is always the way to go!
As my skin has aged, it has gotten much dryer. She’s crying for moisture. Once upon a time, powder foundations gave me great coverage and absorbed the oil in my skin. Now they make me look old and tired! I converted to liquid foundation this year and instantly felt and looked more youthful. There are so many different kinds on the market! Choose the one with the right finish and coverage you prefer!
Even on days when I don’t wear a full face of makeup, I’ve started to apply a little bit of concealer under my eyes and lips to wake up my face! This trick has definitely helped me not look so tired during a busy week. It’s so quick and easy and makes a huge difference!
Throughout the years, I have noticed that it’s easier and much faster to apply makeup with brushes. Now, these brushes don’t have to be expensive. I’ve found the best brushes at Sephora, and believe it or not, Marshalls!
Sundays are my days to get myself back together for the week! As I mentioned above, with age comes skin that’s just more dry. Therefore, it is very important that we get rid of it to ensure our makeup applies and looks fresh and smooth. Using a skin exfoliant and doing a moisturizing mask weekly can have you looking like a million bucks! Just pick up a few facial sheet masks while you’re going through the checkout line. Many of them cost under $5 and they are truly hassle-free!
Makeup colors are seasonal, just like clothes. In the Spring/Summer months, you want to wear brighter and lighter colors (pinks and reds). But in the Fall/Winter months, you want to wear deeper and darker colors (burgundies and deep reds). Identify the best shades for you each season and stick to them! Many times cosmetic brands will keep manufacturing the same colors season after season. Therefore, all you have to do is reorder the color online. Don’t hassle with going to the makeup counter. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
All these beauty tips have helped me get ready and look put-together when life gets busy. As we get older–it’s essential that we switch up our routines and beauty products to benefit our current skin. In addition, we must pay more attention to what we use and how we treat ourselves!
