My Mum doesn’t wear makeup. Only lipstick sometimes. But recently she decided to change her hair style, got some new clothes and asked me if I could select some makeup for her.
Wow! I definitely approve 😉
She has light skin, dark hair and eyes, so here are the basics that I have chosen. She doesn’t need that many products simply because she won’t even use them – so, knowing her taste and requirements, here is what I’ve chosen:
I am not yet 100% sure about the foundation that will suit her the best. So far she liked this Bourjois one (shown on the photo). But if you have suggestions for a lady around 50 with dry skin, feel free to share. And thanks to everyone on Twitter for their recommendations!
Blush is a must have in a makeup bag of any girl, in my opinion, as it instantly changes the appearance. This Max Factor blush is one of my personal favourites and I know that it will look great on her, too. Will have to pick up another one soon, as I am giving away my personal one.
My Mum doesn’t mind a wash of colour on her lids, so Daniel Sandler palette in Sheer Beauty would be perfect for her. I may get her grey and brown eye pencils in the future. But right now I don’t think that she will be using those. I did put BECCA’s Line + Illuminate Pencil in Belize in her makeup bag just in case though.
And, of course, mascara! I have decided to give her the Illamasqua one, as it gives nice volume and length for the lashes and that’s what every woman wants.
