Kristen Arnett's Age Defying Makeup Tips

By AMNW Intern

International Makeup Artist Kristen Arnett joined us today to show us the most common makeup mistakes made by women over 40 -- and how to fix them!  You can reach Kristen by going to her website.

Here are the mistakes Kristen talked about on the show:

  •  Wearing foundation that is too dry/powdery or too light in color.
  •  Wearing eyeliner that is too harsh in color or thickness.  Stay away from putting heavy lines on your eyes!
  • Undefined eyebrows.  Eyebrows lose color and fullness as we age.  Choose a color one shade lighter than your haircolor.
  • Improperly concealed undereye circles.  Light creates the illusion that something is coming forward, so stay away from light and sparkle when concealing darkness under your eyes. 
  • Wearing sparkles or glitter anywhere on your face!  Kristen says glitter is "workable" for women 25 and under.
  • Wearing  frosted lipsticks and eyeshadows or wearing lipsticks that are too dark.

Kristen suggests putting makeup only where you need it.
