Makeup do’s and don’ts over 40


  1. Actually probably better to advise how to wear their makeup as opposed to how not too. I'm 50 and wear eyeshadow with a bit of champagne eyeshadow on middle of eyelid I don't have crepy hooded eyes so that's a great spot there. Moisturise till the cows come home. Make face glow with an illuminiser as opposed to highlighter or use a one with gold flecks. Go light not heavy foundation and or powder, use a hundred different products but not 10 tonnes of one.

  2. I'm 43…I have to admit that I felt this video came across as very condescending, but after reading the comments and your replies, I can see that you are trying to help women look their best. I think that maybe the tips could have been presented differently to get the same points across without using the words 'Don't', 'should never' etc. So instead of saying shouldn't wear a red lip, just say something like, 'with a neutral lip, you can never go wrong.' Etc. Whether makeup or clothes, no one should tell another woman what she can and cannot wear. In the end, it's all about how one feels in one's own skin anyway, and women should support other women doing what makes them feel good. There is way too much scrutiny already in society for women. More support and less judgment is what is needed in general.

    Clearly that women has had a lot of filler and plastic surgery! After 40 you wear what ever the hell you want!

  4. I'd like to know how much plastic surgery or fillers these woman have had. Makeup, if done tastefully, can be worn how ever someone wants and makes them fill good. She is a state of mind, in my book….. With all the great beauty products out there, anyone, including elderly and even MEN are able to pull off any look they feel comfortable with. Just my thoughts!

    Agree with glitter but not red lips. You just gotta prime and line and re-apply. A good red lip with minimal makeup is classic. I just think you gotta know your lips are diff at 40 than 20, so yeah, if you just slap that red on, you will have vertical bleeding lines.

  6. What a load of crap! I look great in red lipstick! 42 and planning to wear it for a long time yet!

  7. Kat Lee says:

    epic fail, ladies.

  8. I think you are wrong red looks great in any age!!!

  9. yeah. not feeling this video. I'm in my mid fifties and can still pull off whatever I chose to as long I feel confidant doing so. You both are very pretty ladies but I got a bad vibe from this. : (

  10. How old are y'all? I'm 50 and I don't have crepey eyes and my red lipstick doesn't travel. Clearly y'all aren't old enough to give this advice. It's mostly wrong.

  11. I think your one beautiful looking 49 year young lady. I 46 and have changed my make up routine a bit and wear less, just course I feel I want my natural beauty to come out more . I noticed when I wear more eye make up I tend to wipe it off my face during the day. I'm trying to stay way from baking , wing eye liner and bright lip sticks . Can u please do a video on after 40 make up tip and a tutorial .

    You know a fast way to age? Start saying you can't wear x, y and z because you are over a certain age. Talk about self-limiting!

    This is overwhelmingly disheartening. I was searching for YouTuber's for mature skin, as I'm entering my 40's, and to see this being shared is horrible. For women of all ages…let us support and lift each other up rather than placing limitations based on age. ♡

  14. Holly58 says:

    Ageism! Just wear natural looking makeup, don't bring attention to yourself and fade into the background. Disappointing message!

  15. There are plenty of brights and red lipsticks that don't move into creases at all. Color can bring a youthful glow if done right. Also, sometimes a shimmer shadow in a neutral color brings light and lift to tired eyes. Especially hooded eyes on the brow. It really depends on how wrinkled you are. The tips here definitely aren't a hard and fast rule.

    I came here for makeup tips and I found the makeup artist is a condescending bitch, she is forgetting she will be 40 one day, I just turn 45 and I look and feel great and haven't had to do any procedures yet ( not that I'm saying is something wrong with it )

  17. Damn… I'm 44 and nobody believes how I am.. I'm not a make up junkie.. However I like the shimmers here and there… I like red lipsticks and pinks because I do… I don't wear clown make up of you feel like wearing more and it looks good on you then go for it. Its not the make that makes you looks bad.. I firmly believe of you have taken good care of your skin.. Then everything else will look good.. Your skincare is your foundation good skin care practices get good results… Sorry but these ladies have some good tips but try not to sound so sassy

  18. Trish Delrow says:

    I'm 45 I wear all the glitters and dark lipstick and love it soo bad advice in my opinion !

  19. The only sensible thing mentioned in this video is that you should always wear sunscreen. Other than that ladies, ignore stereotypes and wear whatever makes you feel good regardless of your age and what other people may say.
