2 common makeup mistakes women over 40 make

In this tutorial (filmed live on Instagram) I show you two common makeup “mistakes” women over 40 are making with their makeup, and what to do instead … and why!

I don’t really like the idea of mistakes… it’s makeup, it’s all about how it makes you feel, so if you’re loving what you’re doing and you’re doing these two things stick with it!

If however you’re doing these two things, and not loving how your makeup is looking … I give you a solution that is more flattering for your beautiful, textured, mature skin!

PS. Yes, I am very aware that these shades of foundation are not right for me! It’s the texture and finish that I am explaining. I would go find me the right shade in a full coverage matte foundation, but I just literally never use it. Like ever.

Get the right makeup for you

Old makeup favourites not working anymore? You are not alone .Many of the products we loved in our 20s and 30s just aren’t made for mature skin. The colours can be a bit off for mature skin, and they often sit in our wrinkles and crinkles (argh). I have been there, and it’s one of the reasons I created Amanda Ramsay Makeup. All products in my store have been carefully selected because they work for over 40s skin. All have been tried tested and much loved by me, your over 40s makeup expert with more than 20 years in the makeup and beauty biz!
