    makeup+tips+for+women+over+40_3356_800162214_0_0_7059043_300While women may have covered their faces in colorful cosmetics when they were younger, some ladies tend to desire a more natural look that will minimize possible signs of aging as they grow older.

    Professional makeup artists Anthony Polvorosa and Simone Cohen-Smith, shared some of their advice for older women with The Winnipeg Free Press.

    To hide crows feet and enhance eye definition, women should use a matte eye shadow dabbed only up to their eyelid crease. If they desire a shimmery glow, the experts advise women to keep the glitter below the brow-bone.

    To create well-defined eyes, women are advised to apply a thin line of black or brown waterproof eyeliner.

    Clean eyebrows that are shaped more like"elongated commas" look best on older women instead of over-arched brows which can give an almost comical appearance, the experts told the news source.

    Older women whose eyelashes may be thinning can try blinc Long Lash, which can enhance the natural look and length of their lashes for an especially youthful and full lash look.

  • Red lips for the holiday season

    red+lips+for+the+holiday+season_3356_800203943_0_0_7066918_300Katy Perry may not be the only one rocking red lips over the next few months. The holiday season has brought crimson lip color back, according to LifestyleInquirer.net. But before attempting the look, apply a few other cosmetics to create a fantastic canvas for your attention-grabbing pout.

    Prepare your face with moisturizer and lip balm. Use a concealer to hide under eye darkness and a mineral foundation to cover any blemishes.

    Since the emphasis will be placed on your lips, keep eye makeup simple with a nude-colored shadow and a few coats of black mascara to subtly enhance your peepers. If you desire a bit more definition, line eyes softly with a brown pencil.

    Before you apply your lip color, use a bright, crimson-colored pencil to line your lips. This will help color last longer and prevent bleeding.

    Finally, slick on your favorite red gloss or lipstick to create a delicious pout. A blue-toned red is a great choice, as the undertones can make teeth look whiter.

  • New study reports that women spend days at the mirror

    new+study+reports+that+women+spend+days+at+the+mirror_3356_800205707_0_0_7040300_300Whether you are getting ready for work in the morning or touching up your mascara midday, it's not uncommon to spend a bit of time standing in front of the mirror. However, according to a new study from QVC Beauty, the amount of time women spend staring at their reflection may be surprising.

    According to the Daily Mail, the study found that British women stare at their reflections for an average of five hours a day. Additionally, the papers revealed that ladies from the U.K. use more than 880 gallons of foundation and 16 millions sweeps of a mascara wand.

    "Beauty products have the power to make people feel good about themselves," QVC Beauty head buyer Kate James told the news source, adding, "Beauty is an area which modern women feel passionately about."

    While these statistics may be staggering to some, women looking to cutdown on the amount of time they spend in front of the mirror may want to use an acrylic-based tubing mascara. The product won't smudge or flake, so gals won't have to worry about touching up their makeup throughout the day.

  • Dark makeup inspired by vampires and Disney villains

    dark+makeup+inspired+by+vampires+and+disney+villains_3356_800210408_0_0_7064727_300Villainous, vampish looks are jumping out of the television and onto the runways. Vampire series such as Twilight and True Blood appear to have inspired makeup looks that have been popping up in high-fashion shows all season, The Globe and Mail reports. The trend includes Disney-villain inspired concepts such as Cruella de Vil's bold, red lips and Snow White's Evil Queen's darkly defined eyes.

    But makeup artists warn that overly intense makeup can make you look more gauche than glam. Instead they recommend choosing one feature to focus on and keeping the rest of the face neutral.

    "If you choose to wear a strong lip, make your lips the focus of your makeup," makeup artist Caitlin Callahan told the news source. She added that for a lip-focused face, mascara and some blusher were enough to complete the look.

    On the other hand, if you're hoping to define your peepers, one color of eyeshadow should be applied darkest at the lash line then blended outwards no further than the crease, Angie Semple, an industry expert, told the news source.

    Women who want to try smoky eye makeup can work to balance their gaze with an eyebrow mousse that fills in sparse eyebrows and defines their arches.

  • Arabian eye makeup

    arabian+eyes_3356_800211457_0_0_7072693_300Arabian eyes are the pride of Arab women worldwide. Because the ladies have had to conceal their faces for cultural and religious reasons, they have focused much of their efforts toward the beautification of their eyes using heavy kohl, eyeliner and lots of mascara.

    In the land of the deserts, women in Arabia wore face-coverings in order to protect their faces from the sun's harsh rays. Soon after, with the advent of Islam, the religion encouraged ladies to be modest in their garments. Many people of the era took this advice to heart and began to use what is called a niqab - a veil which only reveals a woman's eyes to society. It was due to these factors that women began to use kohl, a thick, black substance, to line their eyes.

    Today, women attending weddings and parties still use kohl but have added to it a pure black eyeshadow which is smudged around the eyes to create a heavy, smoky eye look.

    In order to achieve the look, the women start with a foundation that is typically one shade lighter than their natural skin tone. They then apply a black eyeshadow and blend it, often with many colors, around their eyelids. Eyeliner is commonly placed on top of the shadow in order to heighten intensity right around the eyes.

    To complete the dark eye look, women apply a thick layer of mascara to lengthen their lashes to the maximum.
