We generally read that older women should not use glitter makeup as it highlights wrinkles by getting clogged in them.
Eduardo Ferreira, a leading makeup artist with Bobbi Brown cosmetics, suggests that though shimmer makeup can look pretty on a woman of any age, however, the older we get, the more focused the application should be.
He recommends avoiding little details like wrinkles. Instead, he says that a touch of shimmer should be applied to one of the smooth spots like under the brow, on the "apple" of the cheeks or in the center of the lower lip.
It is very essential to understand the difference between delicate shimmer and gaudy glitter, he adds, irrespective of your age.
