Mother's Day is just around the corner, and if you're looking for a thoughtful gift to make your mum feel unique and beautiful, we've got you covered.

Makeup & Skincare For Mature Skin

As our mums' age, their skin undergoes various changes, including decreased collagen production and elasticity, making it crucial to adjust their skincare and makeup routines. While mature skin requires extra care and attention, it's important to note that aging skin can still look radiant and youthful with the right approach. So, here are some general tips for makeup and skincare for mature skin.

First and foremost, always prioritize hydration. As we age, our skin loses moisture and elasticity, leading to dryness, wrinkles, and fine lines. To combat this, invest in hydrating skincare products. Gift your mother a moisturiser that will provide deep hydration to her skin. Additionally, don't forget the importance of applying sunscreen every day to protect the skin from further damage and premature aging. Investing in products that will help protect the skin, keep it hydrated and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is the first step to keeping that glowing skin.

Before starting to get glam, there's one crucial step you don't want her to miss: primer! And lucky for you, we've got just the thing. Meet our Auto Pilot Primer, Napoleon Perdis #1 best-selling primer that will help achieve a flawless, velvety-smooth complexion before applying makeup. Trust us, your mum will love it, and her skin will thank you for it!

When it comes to makeup, avoid heavy and cakey products that can settle into fine lines and wrinkles, and opt for lightweight and natural-looking makeup that enhances your mother’s natural glow. Overall, choosing the right skincare and makeup products can help your mum feel confident and beautiful on this special day and beyond.

Gift Guide: Best Makeup Sets for Mum

Napoleon Perdis has various options for a complete makeup set that covers all bases to suit different preferences and budgets. The Premium Essentials Kit is an all-in-one collection of must-have products in a sleek travel case. It includes an expertly curated edit of 6 professional makeup brushes. It is the perfect gift for mums who love experimenting with makeup.

Best Foundation for Mature Skin

Our skin changes as we age, and choosing products that cater to our specific needs is essential. Lightweight, moisturising foundations and concealers that provide coverage without settling into fine lines are ideal for mature skin. Finding the best foundation for mature skin can be daunting, but Napoleon Perdis has plenty of options for your mum.

The Auto Pilot BBB Cream is a multi-tasking product that primes, perfects, and hydrates the skin, making it an ideal choice for mums who prefer a lightweight, natural finish. It's also packed with skincare benefits to keep mature skin looking its best.

For more coverage, the Advanced Mineral Makeup is a mineral-based foundation that provides buildable coverage without clogging pores or settling into fine lines. It's enriched with vitamins and antioxidants to improve skin health over time, making it the perfect foundation for mums who want to look after their skin while looking fabulous.

Another great option is the Stroke of Genius Liquid Cashmere Foundation, which acts as a filter to assist in smoothing the skin and minimising fine lines and wrinkles for a flawless finish. 

For a more luxurious gift, the Supreme Eye Cream brings a luxuriously soft and voluptuous texture for maintaining moisture and elasticity. It's a great option if you're looking for a gift that will make your mum feel extra special.

Eye Makeup for Mature Eyes

The eyes are often the first to show signs of ageing, but you can enhance their natural beauty with the right makeup techniques and eye makeup products. While we don’t like to call it eye makeup for older women, the neutral shades found in makeup for mature skin, such as browns, taupes, and greys, are ideal for mature eyes as they add depth without being too harsh. 

The Colour Ritual Eyeshadow Quad is a versatile palette that mixes matte and shimmer shades to create different looks. It's perfect for mums experimenting with different eye makeup looks.

To complete the eye look, the best eye makeup for mature skin is without mascara that just works. The Long Black Mascara is a cult favourite that provides length, volume, and definition without smudging or flaking. It's perfect for mums who want a dramatic eye look without worrying about their mascara smudging or flaking throughout the day. 

How to Make Mother's Day Special: Ideas for a Beauty Day with Mum

To make your Mother's Day gift memorable, why not treat your mum to a day of pampering and relaxation? Start the day with a homemade breakfast in bed, followed by a spa session where you can enjoy facials, massages, and manicures. Then when she arrives home, treat her to a gift basket full of beauty products for Mum. It's the perfect way to help her unwind and destress.

Plus, you can help her experiment with makeup and try new looks using the Napoleon Perdis products you've gifted her. 

The Colour Theory Eye Palette is perfect for mums who want to try out new eye makeup looks, while the Cheek Switch Crème Blush Duo is ideal for mums who want to add a pop of colour to their cheeks. 

You could also treat her to a makeup-for-mothers beauty tutorial with a Napoleon Perdis makeup artist to learn new makeup tips and tricks.

Take photos together to capture the memories to make your Mother's Day gift even more special.
