Favorite 5 Make-Up Essentials

Favorite Make-Up Essentials

As women, we all have our favorite make-up essentials – lipstick, mascara, etc. Our LivingBetter50 team is no different. We’ve been discussing our favorite make-up essentials and thought we would share our top 5 with our readers. 

LivingBetter50’s Favorite 5 Make-Up Essentials:

1. Too Faced Cosmetics Primed and Poreless

A good base is always essential for any flawless make-up application. Too Faced Cosmetics Primed and Poreless softens fine lines and evens out the complexion. We love that with this primer, you can choose to go without a foundation coverage because it canvasses the skin so well!

2. Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Make-Up

As we age, our skin needs more moisture and without it, foundation can appear dry, flaky, and seeps into the fine lines and wrinkles. One of our favorite make-up essentials is a good foundation which provides coverage and moisture such as the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream. This creamy foundation gives a radiant and flawless coverage making it perfect for women over fifty!

3. Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara

Unlike many products on the market, the Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara is true to it’s claim. It brushes on with ease without clumping or flaking. This mascara adds the perfect amount of volume and detail to every single lash. We love that it does not smudge or run when wet or when we get sweaty during a workout. It gives the eyes a bold, lush look without making it look like fake lashes. It is certainly one of our favorite make-up essentials. 

4. Maybelline Lifter Gloss Lip Gloss

For the more mature woman, the Maybelline Lifter Lip Gloss has hyaluronic acid to hydrate and moisturize the lips. We love this gloss because it adds shine and  makes the lips appear fuller with added contour. It comes in a variety of natural colors to suit any shade of skin, making it a practical and favorite make-up essential for any woman over fifty.    

5. L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Satin Blush 

A blush formulated for the mature woman in mind is perfect! The L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Satin Blush is true to its name. It glides on like satin and radiates your skin giving it a luminous, healthy glowing appearance. This blush is the finishing touch to our staff’s favorite 5 make-up essentials. 


Every woman is given unique qualities that make her beautiful. Make-up should highlight your beauty, but should never contrast it or mask who you are. Embrace your differences and never hide that which makes you beautiful… YOU!
