Ariane Poole has made up lots of famous faces- including Lulu, Cilla, Penelope Cruz, Rachel Weisz, so we’re thrilled to have Ariane as our resident make-up expert on Fabafterfifty.
So many of us use the same make-up products and techniques we used when we were younger and Ariane was keen to show how we can look our best once re reach 50 and beyond by changing some of our techniques and being open to trying new colours and products. Her only condition was that I agreed to be her model- on video!
Enjoy the series, we cover everything from primers and using the right foundation , to choosing the right shade of red lipstick for you. Just for the record I hate having my photograph taken, so being on video wasn’t something I was looking forward to, but Ariane was keen to show the difference good make-up application can make in our 50s and wanted to use a ‘normal’ woman and not a model. I hope you enjoy and learn some tips!
How to make-up your eyes over 50
We start off with a quick introduction and then make-up tips for eyes.
We have primers, foundations, concealers, lips and cheeks and eyebrows to follow in future clips. If you want to see how to diminish fine lines and dark circles and look less ‘jowly’, Ariane covers all these issues in her video tutorials, all of which will be added to the website over the next few days.
