Spring is coming and that makes us all feel a bit hopeful and ready for something new.

Some people do a spring clean of their house, but you can also do a clear-out of your makeup and take on a fresh new makeup routine.

In this makeup tutorial for women over 50, I will show you a natural, mature makeup look that will give you that refreshed, ready-for-spring feel.

Ready for something new? Let’s begin!

The makeup I'm using today is from the Look Fabulous Forever Range, made specifically for mature skin. However, you can achieve the same results with any brand of makeup.

Applying eye makeup

1. Start with spring eyeshadow

Apply your usual foundation, concealer, powder, and any other primers you normally use. Then, do your brows the way you always do you are ready to start this spring makeup routine. 

Spring makes me think about green, so that’s the direction I’m going in this demonstration. 

First, use an eye makeup brush to apply teal eyeshadow to your eyelids, in, below, and just above the crease.

Applying eyeliner

2. Add coordinating eyeliner

Apply forest green eyeliner just above your upper lashes.

Applying eyeliner

Now, apply a little of the same eyeliner to your lower eye line.

Applying eyeliner

Soften the eyeliner just a bit, by using a wedge brush and going over the eyeliner with your forest green eyeshadow.

Curling lashes

3. Move on to your eyelashes

Curl your eyelashes before applying any mascara.

Squeeze and slightly lift the eyelash curler to get the best result.

Applying mascara

Then apply black mascara to your upper lashes.

Adding color to cheeks

4. Add spring color to your cheeks

To look like you’ve just been out for a lovely spring walk, apply a peach cream blush by dabbing it on with your fingertip. 

You’re probably still a bit pale from the long winter months, so be careful not to choose too vibrant a blush color just yet.


Use a large soft blending brush to add a bit more blush and blend it in.

Now your face will really come alive with your spring makeup look!

Adding bronzer

Use the same brush to add a little bronzer of your blush, for that extra glow.

Adding bronzer

Finish with an extra-large makeup brush, and sweep the bronzer all over your face and jawline.

Adding lip makeup

5. Spring lips

After applying your usual lip primer and letting it dry, outline your lips with a nice warm strawberry red lip liner.

Adding lip makeup

Use the same lip liner to fill in your lips.

Adding lip makeup

Use your fingertip to blend it all together and soften the line.

Adding lip makeup

Use a lip brush to apply coral-colored lipstick over your lip liner base.

Blotting lips

Gently blot your lips with a tissue.

Adding lip makeup

Finish your lips with cinnamon-pink lip gloss.

    Looks great! Your eyes really pop! Do you have any 50+ tutorials or tips for a very natural minimal look, for beginner's I guess you could say? ;) I haven't worn make-up in years.
