I get a makeover & new makeup for the Over 50s.
This is a sponsored post, but I genuinely love this makeup and can't get over how smooth my skin looks. I think you know me well enough to know that if I hadn't liked the product I would have walked away. The before & after photos below say it all and I hope you enjoy the make over as much as I did, especially the top tips for women Over 50.
Here's the After pic without any editing, brightening or filters, under TV lights. I think I look very well, if very lined, my skin's glowing and, best of all, it looks natural. But will I be able to do this makeup myself, and quickly? Read on......
WHY A MAKEUP BRAND FOR THE OVER 50s?
LFF is the brainchild of Tricia Cusden who started the company in her mid-60s when she had that light bulb moment: the big makeup brands simply don't cater for older skin and the high street is all about anti-ageing rather than pro-ageing. (Hear, hear to that!)
So Tricia developed a cruelty-free brand of make up that is specifically formulated to suit our more mature faces, eyes & lips. Just four years and 70 video tutorials later LFF is just going from strength to strength. Tricia's positive ageing philosophy says it all, " I want to encourage older women to accept and embrace their ageing self whilst doing all you can to have the healthiest and most fabulous 'third act' that you can possibly achieve."
HAVE I GOT TIME TO DO MAKEUP LIKE A PRO AT HOME?
Both products were an absolute revelation to me after years of using BB creams or tinted moisturisers that just don't cut it when it comes to proper coverage. All because I hated the thickness of most foundations. This LFF foundation is really light but still covers properly without looking heavy and caked on. Result!
The third essential for a fabulous, flawless face has to be concealer. Tricia noticed that women, and I'm one of them, thought highlighters would brighten the face, which they do, but would also work as an under eye concealer, covering up those dark shadows. They don't! "That's why I added a rich creamy concealer with sufficient pigmentation to properly conceal eye bags, age spots and blemishes to the LFF range," adds Tricia.
These four steps to looking more fabulous take no time at all. Just practise and use Tricia's informative videos to help you..... from how to apply eye makeup to how to have luscious lips, everything an Over 50 needs to know about makeup is there.
Finally, you know me and my lippie, that's one thing you will never see me without...........
So here I am fully made up at the end of the makeover & shoot. I got home some 7 hours later and was gob-smacked to look in the mirror to see the same dewy, smooth complexion. Apart from the lippie, nothing needed re-applying. Amazing after nearly eight hours of eating, talking and traveling home.
For fellow lazy-bones out there, taking your time and faffing around with your make up is really worth it if you want it to last all day & all evening. But you can also do the bare minimum really quickly too. I am now certainly a convert to wearing make-up for going out to face the world, as you never know who you might meet and even if it's just the bare essentials, (primer, a tiny bit of foundation, concealer & bronzer at the very least for me) I really do feel fabulous when I look in the mirror and see a smoother, even skin tone.
So that's my latest venture into wearing proper makeup on my 60 something skin. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to rave about it, but if you are following me on Instagram, you will know that my delight with LFF is real and authentic. It's awesome for older skin. And, most importantly, it's really reasonably priced so kind to your purse as well. Talking of which..........
