Use makeup to your advantage with a few different tips and techniques which can transform ageing skin and make you look 10 years younger. We’ve hand-picked a few tricks which help to create a flawless base, meaning you can make the most of the skin you’re in.
The secret to any flawless base is consistently moisturising both morning and night. To fight against any signs of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, or even the common dry patches, it’s important to use a hydrating serum before applying your base. Not only will your makeup last longer, but it will keep your skin from feeling too dry.
A liquid bronzer is essential since it warms up the face without any harsh lines. You can also double it up and use it to bring some life to your cheeks as a blush, or apply it as an eyeshadow base – so easy!
The secret to fuller looking lips is all about a lip liner and lip gloss. Use a rose or nude coloured liner to highlight the shape of your lips, and apply a gloss over the top to make them appear larger.
Rather than going for a dark smokey eye, which can actually make your eyes seem small and droopy, it is wise to opt for neutral or earthy tones for your shadows. Cream products are amazing since they can just be applied with your hands, and melt seamlessly into the skin.
Most mature skin seems to lack the moisture and collagen, so it’s important to always prime before applying your base. A dewy primer is best since it draws light to the face without making you look like a disco ball.
As with a primer, to draw attention to certain parts of your face, it’s important to highlight and illuminate with the correct tools. Add some dimension to your face by applying a cream highlight onto the top of your cheekbones before heading out. We promise it’ll make your entire face glow!
Curl your lashes
Draw the attention to your eyes by curling your lashes before applying mascara. This makes such a big difference, especially if your lashes are naturally quite straight.
