Before & Afters Makeup My Favorites Popular Tips & Tricks Tutorials

Age is beauty.

It’s not that she’s particularly concerned about it or mentions it much but if you asked my mom if she thinks she’s pretty she’d probably say something like “Oh, no. Not really, I’m just old.”
For her those two things are mutually exclusive.
Which is actually quite ridiculous and I’ll show you why.

Beautiful at any age.

I would argue that at 60 years old and having given birth to 9 children she is more beautiful today than she ever has been.
Look at her eyes. There are no short cuts to getting eyes like that. I imagine it took thousands of tears to polish them enough to sparkle so softly and sweetly.
You can’t see it in the photo but she has the most beautiful voice. That voice took millions of sweet words, hundreds of lullabies and …only one or two “CARALYN BROOK!!”s to become as smooth and warm as it is.
Her smile. How many happy moments and completely hilarious jokes did it take to leave those gorgeous smile impressions around her mouth? They linger after each smile as if her face remembers too many joyful moments for them to be fully erased.

I used to be so petrified of getting older. So afraid of wrinkles or pregnancy weight or for my hair to turn gray, but not any more. I know that if every year I give all I have to give, laugh as much as I can, treat every new experience as an adventure and every new person as a chance to love and care for someone than I will be more beautiful at 102 than I was at 22.
I can’t wait for the chance.

My mom is beautiful with or without makeup but we have found there are makeup tricks that make her feel her prettiest and it is only natural that as your skin and face change your makeup routine should evolve as well.
these are some awesome tips for ageless beauty
So here are some of my favorite findings:

No more big pores!

Honestly, I don’t know if I would believe this if I hadn’t taken the photo myself. The difference is pretty dang impressive. This silky stuff creates a smooth surface for applying makeup and that includes filling pores.

Instant Facelift!

Filled with Anastasia Brow Powder Duo Ebony

As we grow older often times those eyebrows start to migrate and they drag your eye and your expressions down with it!
My advice for this might seem a little radical but I think it’s by far the best option. ( I added the falling brows to this photo because we got rid of my mom’s a few years ago)

1. Locate your brow bone by feeling for it above your eye socket. Your brow bone is a rough guide to where your brows should be.

2. Wax or tweeze all the hair below your natural brow (brow bone) Even if that means you will only have half of your brow.

3. With an angled brush and some brown shadow fill in the arch by drawing in your brow above the ridge of your brow bone.

(Find a more thorough tutorial on filling in your brows here)

Amazing foundation!
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Stromboli

I always try to find the least expensive products I can but when it comes to foundation I get a little less stressed about price and more concerned with performance.
You wear it every day and only have to replace it 2 or 3 times a year! It is TOTALLY worth a splurge. I actually found this foundation on accident when I was testing swatches on my hand for color I grabbed this (cause it was the closest thing to me at Sephora) and rubbed it into my hand, I had to double take. Usually when I rub products on my hand the lines in my skin become exaggerated. When I rubbed this on it smoothed out my skin and made such a smooth creamy finish I was flabbergasted! I snagged a sample of it and have been in love ever since. Plus it has good yellow undertones which I prefer on most skin.

I am working on a post right now on how to get the sheerest most natural application, so check back this week for that as well.

blush & bronzer
Urban Decay Baked Bronzer
Tarte Cheek Stain in Tickled
When I do my mom’s makeup I can’t tell you the difference it makes when I brush on the blush and bronzer.
It brings so much energy and warmth to her face. As scary as a highly saturated blush may seem they really look beautiful when mixed with the skin.

beauty at any age

I used Sephora Lip Gloss in Fuchsia Mania

I hope this helps!
Have a marvelous Monday you are dazzling,

So even swiping on a bold lipstick, or a couple coats of mascara, can give you that va va voom to get through the day. YOur mom is gorgeous!

    Hi there, Cara.

    I’ve been visiting your blog for several weeks now (after seeing you on Pinterest) and shared this wonderful find with my 24-year-old daughter. She purchased the supplies for HACing after seeing your informative tutorial. As I have often found to be the case, make-up that looks great on her doesn’t necessary flatter my 53-year-old skin/face–how excited I was to see this post!

    One of the things I really appreciate about your tutorials is that you provide specific examples of products you have personally used and like. It is SO overwhelming to walk into a cosmetics department or store and see such a vast array of choices–some of which are just insanely expensive. Your willingness to use and recommend less expensive alternatives is like a breath of fresh air.

    The old adage about pictures being worth thousands of words really rings true here as the before and afters of your lovely mom clearly demonstrate that improving upon nature with cosmetics isn’t just a young woman’s game.

    And, perhaps most importantly, your touching words about your mom say to me that your beauty goes far deeper than your skin.

I tell people all the time that she is more beautiful at 60 than she’s ever been, and I hope I look half as good as her when I’m older. I think it’s time I shared that with her!

I am such a huge fan of living life that embraces and holds aging, as a woman, in high regard. There are so many stigmas in our world and I feel that it’s imperative that this changes.

    It is already a lot of work being a woman, it isn’t necessarily always easy, we are truly amazing creatures with all that we do. I know that these perspectives towards women aging can change for the better. Your post represents exactly what lens I hope the world will begin to see through.

    Beautiful momma! UD bronzer is out of my budget range. Would you be able to recommend another one for 50 yr old skin. I read someone for mature skin our bronzer should be a matte. Im limping along with loreal tru match powder in cocoa which is a cool color, as opposed to warm, not cool as in neato…follow me? This whole makeup thing can be overwhelming so ty for any words of wisdom.

    You really are amazing Cara. I follow lots of beauty blogs in an effort to learn more about how to apply my makeup correctly for my age (45). I have never left a comment before. but, you deserve huge kudos.

    Your mother is a very beautiful woman, Cara. Wow. Well I’m just reading through my Woman’s World magazine right now, and I am looking at an ad for a skin care beauty supplement. It’s new and called Skin Care Collagen Filler by New Nordic. It’s available at Walgreens and NEWNORDICUSA.COM. It says this about it: “Beautiful skin from within – * For fine and supple skin * Helps reduce the formation of wrinkles * Supports the skin’s own formation of collagen * High concentration of protective antioxidants. From the age of about 20, our skin loses collagen – an important component of thick and smooth skin. As the skin gets thinner and loses its elasticity, wrinkles start showing. Skin Care by New Nordic, is a newly developed collagen tablet that helps supply collagen and other vital nutrients to the skin. Fortified with pomegranate extract and vitamin C, the tablet also promotes the skin’s own production of collagen.” The front of the box says it contains collagen, pomegranate, tomato, astaxanthin and vitamin C. Manufactured in Sweden, 60 coated tablets. I thought I would mention it under this posting in case anyone is interested since it’s anti-aging and all. 🙂

    I am a 55 years old trolling the internet today looking for makeup tips for older women; so happy to have found your site. Before and afters are always wonderful–behold the power of makeup!–and when looking for a woman of my age for some pointers I came across this one you’ve titled “Age and Beauty.” Looking at the accompanying photo I thought you were trying to slide a 40 year old by us as the magazines do and am so pleased to see a woman who is actually my age. Your Mom is beautiful and you do beautiful work; thank you to your Mom for letting us peek under the makeup.

    I have seen a couple of things of yours on Pinterest , which lead me to your website. As soon as I saw that before and after pic, I knew it was your Mom. I just want you to know that any mother would have been so very proud to have a daughter like you. You hold your Mother in such high esteem and it is awesome to see that. I am 50 years old and have 19 and 16 year old boys. I know they love me, and I got beautiful Mothers Day cards from each. I hope they marry someone with a beautiful heart…like yours.

    Thank you Cara! You’re a beautiful artist with many wonderful gifts to share. All of your posts are very inspiring, and your Mom is gorgeous! I’m 51 with light to light/medium complexion, some say olive. How do I best choose a shade of the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation via the Amazon site? Should look for it somewhere in a store first so I can somehow test shades? In general, how do you choose the right color? Merci!

    I’m 53 and read your blog weekly. I would love to see more make-up/overs on older women….you inspire. I did purchase Nars Sheer Glow, was color matched with Fiji….toooo light. I will use it for hi-liter and try to test out a different color. I’m more the color of your Mom. Thank you for your creative talents and knowledge……and most of all…..for sharing.

    Peace & Love,

    Cara, I have only today found your website thru Pintrest trying to get few tips before I go on holiday. You are an absolute inspiration and I can’t thank you enough for all your tips. I’m going to recommend you to my two beautiful daughters and all my friends. We can all do with a little help sometimes! I’m 64 and have spent my whole life looking after everyone else, but after a brain tumour 4 years ago I now know I need to look after myself and that’s what I’m trying to do. Make the most of what I’ve got, aging skin, dark circles and all. I’m going for it and thanking you all the way for all your helpful tips. You are a beautiful woman, both inside and out my lovely and I’m sure your Mum is as proud of you as you are of her. Wishing you both a wonderful life for the future x

    This made me totally emotional! I just turned 30 six days ago, and (I know this sounds crazy) but I just feel so old, and worn out! The beauty you described in your Mom gave me peace. I hope that is the kind of beauty I have when I am 60. Thank you for being you, and for all you do to empower the true beauty in others. Thank you!!!

    Tinder is a material that is necessary to start the
    fire and it can be almost anything that is capable of igniting, such as small dry
