â€œRealâ€ housewife and former actress Kim Richards has been on camera long enough to know what looks good on her, and what doesnâ€™t. This is an example of what doesnâ€™t. If you have mature skin, take note of this makeup fail and avoid the following mistakes:
â€¢ Our dark circles get more prominent as we age, but that doesnâ€™t mean we need to apply concealer in progressively lighter shades. Choose a concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin tone with an orange or yellow (not white!) base. This counteracts the purple tones that give us dark circles.
â€¢ Hard black eyeliner around the entire eye looks harsh on a twenty year old. For mature women, the results are even worse. Lining your entire eye in black adds tiredness and age to your faceâ€¦why would anyone want that? Line the top lash line only if you must use black, and smudge the edges out to make your eyes look bigger, and softer.
â€¢ Do not use silver eye shadow if you are orange. The over-tanned look doesnâ€™t suit anyone, but if you love to soak up the sun then stick to warm palettesâ€”apricot, bronze, and so on.
The most important thing to remember if you have mature skin is that less is more. Keep your makeup soft, fresh and light.
