Make up for menopausal women is very important. This is the time of our lives when we want to look our best but when we feel a little down, the next best thing is a little make up!
Let learn about make up – how did it all begin?
Well the Egyptians were the first men and women to use make up, and to actually make it. Men also wore make up to enhance their looks. I doubt very much there were many women with menopause symptoms, well you never know maybe they did have a certain amount of stress and that wouldn’t help.
Women used clay and dyes from flowers and plants to make the colours. They crushed the clay and added different shades to blend and make different colours. They use it on different parts of the body. The black eye liner known as Kohl was considered very precious to women and they had to have it. Galena was a black paint that shielded eyes from the sun, while malachite powder made the eyes appear larger and protected those who wore it. Both were applied using ivory, wood, or sticks made of metal.
So we are not saying that you have to begin fabricating your make up line, however, it is vital that as we age we change our style of make up at the same time. Here are a few tips for you to help you along the way.

The eyes are blue, so she is using a blue/grey gentle eye liner with blue mascara. Her eyebrows are touched up with a soft brown eye shadow and gentle brush. Lipstick is soft and prink to match her skin tone and hair colour.
Hair colour is very important, strong colours as you age are not appealing. Go soft and go gentle for a much nicer look.
