make up for Mature Ladies??
« on: May 12, 2020, 08:04:30 PM »

I have just read about a mascara VolumeCare+ which is aimed at post-menopausal ladies - do you think such a product really makes any difference? I didn't............then I did........then I wasn't sure, but  how I wish I had my hair-free top lip, my defined eye brows, my long, attractive eye lashes. Oh, what a depressing minute or 3 I've just spent.

Better now?

DH is a research Chemist and often groans at the ideas pushed particularly at ladies in the Health and Beauty pages/adverts. 

I haven't worn make-up for over 30 years - got too lazy to take it off at night  ::).  I've let my hair go silver on top.  I don't shave my legs unless the weather is really really warm .......... for lots and lots of weeks  ;)

One has so many eyelashes so unless the mascara made it sticky, it won't add volume.  I tried that in the 1970s  ::) and looked like a panda  :o

A really good product for your lashes to grow is called rapid lash,you get it from boots,it's a bit costly but after a few weeks,omg,your lashes are lovely and long,really works.
I don't step outside the door without make up,so vain  ;D

I used to wear the bare minimum make up when I was working but have got lazy these days! I do fill in my eyebrows every day as I feel better with them "in", and use mascara when going out (had a break for 7 weeks   ???) love lipstick but have wasted so much money. CLKD, thanks for Mr CLKD's opinion - when I think about it, how can eyebrows know if they belong to a child or adult?

I don't like all the 'ideas' on shampoo but it seems that I can't buy any that hasn't got 'something' magical in it  ::)

;D Yep, that's a tip my friend gave me for looking in the mirror, take your glasses off and stand well back, works every time.

Works far better than any anti wrinkle cream  :)

Both Grannies had beautiful soft skin.  One had water from a pump ......... both used very little other than warm water and probably 'ponds' skin care cream.

Last night DH said I was looking awful red (face, I think!) Today I went back to a Clinique redness solutions cream but after 2 minutes, I remembered why it was in the toilet bag in the cupboard - it pulled up and I had big grains of dark green stuff to wipe off! Any recommendations for a good redness solutions moisturiser, preferably with SPF?

Whose side might he be on?

I would use a sun tan lotion ............ mayB Nivea.  The less mixes the best.

My mum taught me to care for my skin from a young age, so I always moisturise.  Until I was around 30, I washed my face with soap but now I use a cleanser as I find it doesn't make my face feel stripped of moisture.  Now that I'm 50, I use a richer cream at night after removing makeup.  I find Olay a good product for my skin.

For my makeup I just go very light - I don't understand the trend these days to plaster the stuff on like so many young girls do.  I think makeup should enhance the face, not cover it up.  After moisturising, I apply a BB cream (Garnier), then a light dusting with a mineral powder, a little blush and then I touch up my eyebrows.  I get my eyebrows tinted and shaped every four weeks, as I'm blonde and they are otherwise very pale.  I'll use eye makeup if I'm going out for the evening.
