Makeup For Your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s & 60’s

PKMH Makeup Tips For All Ages

Women at every stage of their life desire looking glamourous, but few actually do it. You see, getting older isn’t always

exciting to many. However, it doesn’t have to be that way and it shouldnt !

We at #pkmh believe that makeup isn’t just for playing dress up on an occasion but to make everyday speciAl by understanding what works for you and what doesn’t. Makeup doesn’t see age, on the contrary If done right it’s a self confidence booster.

Makeup can help you feel more put together and improve your appearance, no matter what your age. There’s no single “best age” to start wearing makeup.


So whether you’re looking for a way to conceal those pesky under-eye bags or want to brighten up your skin for the day, we’ve got you covered.

Check out these makeup tips and tricks that work for their respective age.

1. Makeup Tips For 20s

● Don’t forget about the basics. It's easy to get so immersed in the latest beauty trends that you forget about the basics. It's important to keep your skin hydrated, your hair and nails healthy, and your makeup fresh. There are a few products you should never be without, and they are mascara, eyeliner, and lip balm.

● It's super important to get your foundation down pat. The face is the most visible part of your body, so it's important to make sure it's PERFECT. When you have great skin, you can wear whatever you want and not have to worry about a thing. Make sure you're setting your foundation before you apply your makeup.

● Concealer can be used in a variety of ways. It can be used to cover up blemishes or to draw attention to your features. This can be used to cover up a dark shadow under your eyes and on your nose, or it could be used to brighten up your whole face.

● One of the best makeup tips for women in their 20s is to try a matte finish. This is when you completely leave your makeup routine without using any color at all. You can always add some eye liner, mascara, and maybe even a little blush.

● Keep your makeup fresh and in sync with the latest trends by updating your look regularly. When it comes to make-up, less really is more so don't be afraid of experimenting with subtle looks that are natural but still show off the best of you!

2. Makeup Tips for 30s

● The foundation should be of a lighter shade to reflect the tone that women in their 30s have naturally developed over time and will continue to develop more so as they grow older. A good rule is for each decade, three shades are darker than one's skin color while two are lighter. This balances out perfect coverage with natural tones - no cake face!

● Women in their 30s often find themselves struggling with dark circles under eyes or redness around the nose and cheeks due to stress, chronic illness like allergies or asthma, genetics etc., which can take away from your beauty if not properly concealed before applying makeup on top of it all! Use light colored concealer matched according to your complexion type (oily/dry).

● Heavy eyeliner looks great but may make you look tired most days because it draws attention down towards our mouths instead of upward at our eyes-which is what we want when wearing makeup for ourselves anyway... So instead use less , soft colors.

● A palette of neutral colors will be best to keep you looking fresh while drawing attention away from any dark circles under your eyes or other signs of aging like wrinkles.

● If it's been awhile since you've had a facial or peels done, consider scheduling one now to get rid of those pesky dark circles under the eyes and even out skin tone there just like that. It really does wonders when it comes down to concealing fine lines from years ago too - yay!

3. Makeup Tips for 40s

● Use liquid eyeliner instead of pencil liner because it allows for better control when lining along a lash line which creates definition and can extend thicker lashes with ease-especially those pesky ones closest to the waterline (the area right underneath the eye).

● If dark circles are an issue, try under eye concealers in different shades for skin tones for added shading where needed or even use make up brush tips with your favorite moisturizer as liners (this covers imperfections)

● Pencil eyebrow might work better than using powders after 40 years old because it is less likely to emphasize lines between brows.

● Use contouring at temples, cheekbones, forehead and chin by applying darker color then blending towards hairline when dressing headshots.

● Texture is key in your 40s, so ditch the flat foundation and go for a more textured one that mimics skin tones as closely as possible without looking too heavy.

4. Makeup Tips for 50s

● Use liquid or cream eyeliner in shades of brown or black close to your natural color for definition around the eyes without looking too harsh or artificial like bold bright colors would be if you're going for 50s style makeup.

● Enhancing Botox injections such as Dysport (if available) may be helpful when used judiciously on forehead furrows between brows – not so much above them where they may cause drooping eyelids due to muscle paralysis that leads one's upper lid toward their lower lashes.

● For eye cream, look for formulas that are designed to reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes with ingredients such as caffeine or cucumber extract—especially important after 50 because facial skin thins with age and becomes less elastic over time.

● Avoid wearing too much blush because at this stage in life cheeks naturally lose their volume due to aging processes-increase concealer instead of using more blusher (unless someone has a light complexion).

● Use lighter shades on eyelids but darker ones towards the lash line--make sure not to use anything too starkly contrasting; always apply mascara without clumping lashes together by rotating brush horizontally through all lashes before lifting away upward vertically down again, just once is enough!

5. Makeup Tips for 60s

● For mature women, try a matte finish or moisturizing liquid foundations for drier skin types or cream based mineral powder foundations with SPF if you have oily to combination skin (SPF 50 is best).

● Choose the perfect shade of eye shadow: If you are over 60 then use less browns/coppers which tend to accentuate fine lines in older eyes -instead opt for lighter colors like beige gold pinks and lighter neutrals such as taupes.

● Avoid blush because it might create redness when applied near areas where veins protrude from aging faces.

● Add volume to your cheekbones by using a bronzer or highlighter for an instant lift, then finish with some blush on the apples of your cheeks.

● A touch of light contouring around the nose bridge creates subtle shadows that mimic bone structure – don’t forget about lips! Adding bright colors like raspberry reminds others you are alive.
