9 Materials
20 Minutes

Today, I’m going to show you how to create a fresh spring and summer makeup look for older women.

All the products I’m using are from the Look Fabulous Forever range of makeup, made specifically for mature skin and the coloring of older women. Here's how to create this simple and natural summer makeup look.

Tools and materials:

  • Rose gold eyeshadow
  • Charcoal eyeshadow
  • Eyeshadow brush
  • Eyeliner brush
  • Mascara
  • Highlighter
  • Blush
  • Blush brush
  • A light shade of lipstick
Applying rose gold eyeshadow

1. Apply Eyeshadow

To begin, I used the Look Fabulous Forever brush #7 to apply a rose gold eyeshadow all over my eyelids and just above the socket line. This is a beautiful matte color, suited to all different skin tones. 

Using eyeshadow as eyeliner

2. Use eyeshadow as eyeliner

I used a charcoal-colored matte eyeshadow in place of eyeliner and applied it with the #8 wedge brush right along my upper lash line. This defines and frames my eyes and makes my lashes look thicker.

I also applied a little bit of the same charcoal color along my bottom lashes, very lightly, and only about halfway from the outer corner of my eye inward.

Applying mascara

3. Apply Mascara

Next, I put on mascara, making sure to coat the lashes from the base to the tips. It’s up to you how many coats you want to use. I have very fair lashes, so I applied a bit of mascara to my bottom lashes as well. 

Using highlighter for mature skin

4. Highlighter

I used a highlighter on all the areas I wanted to brighten and lift.

For me, this included my brow bone, along the tops of my cheekbones, down the center of my nose, the frown lines in the center of my forehead, right above the arch of my eyebrow, and just a tiny bit on my cupid’s bow.

I used my fingers to gently pat it and blend it in. This is a great way to add a touch of luminescence to your skin without looking too shiny.

Applying blush to cheeks using fingers

5. Apply Blush

To bring a bit of color to my face, I applied blush on the apples of my cheeks. I used my finger to dab it on and pull the color upwards towards my temples in a teardrop shape. 

Blending makeup

6. Blend

I then used a large brush to blend the blush color, and soften the edges a bit. 

Light summer lip color

7. Summery lipstick

To finish off the look, I used a light, summery lip color called Sunset Glow.
