Highlighters are a blast. I wish I could feel comfortable wearing them more often. Here’s the deal with highlighters over 50.
They tend to make every crevice, bump, wrinkle, and pore stand up, stand out, and salute with a ticker tape parade. I have only a handful of highlighters, mostly liquid, that are subtle enough to wear at my age and still feel great.
Choose Colors 1-2 levels from your natural colors
Dramatic colors are fun to wear and I still wear them on special occasions or just when I’m in the mood. I love to play with eye shadow colors or bold lip colors.
Sometimes it even makes me feel bold to wear these new products but the absolute truth is when I wear colors one or two steps above or below my natural coloring I feel like I look my best.
How do you find your natural colors?
For soft natural makeup with your natural colors try pinching the tips of your fingers. The color that comes through whether it’s a classic red, dark orange, a light pink, a berry, or a tan it’s pretty close to your flushing or blushing color.
Another color is the natural lip color. Bump up a step or two above that or below that and your makeup will stay looking soft and natural but still enhance your features.

Soft Natural Makeup over 50

Or you could choose heavy or accentuated eyebrows.

It’s an obvious no-brainer, otherwise, lipstick wouldn’t be the all-time best-selling makeup product on the planet.
