1. Moisturizer Is A Must
Before applying any makeup, you should apply a really good moisturizer, as if your skin is dry, line and wrinkles will become more prominent. Also, your skin tone will appear dull.
Applying moisturizer will help to soften wrinkles and give you younger looking skin.
When it comes to applying moisturizer, many women know applying a night moisturizer will help with the anti-aging process, but often overlook the importance of applying moisturizers before applying makeup.

2. Primer Isn’t Just For Paint
Think about it, professional painters apply a paint primer on walls to cover up imperfections in order to have a great surface before applying paint.
Well, the same is true with makeup primer. A primer will conceal fine lines and wrinkles and cover pores for a more porcelain complexion. By using a primer after moisturizing, it will give your skin a more youthful appearance and it also allow your makeup to last all day long.

3. Understanding Your Foundation
All foundations are not the same. When choosing the best foundation for your skin, stay away from formulas that are matted and have a drying affect.
As you age, your skin will naturally start to dry out. Using foundations that work toward drying out skin oils will leave your face looking dull and will accentuate lines and wrinkles.
Choose a foundation that is luminous with light-reflecting particles – These foundations will make your face radiant and will hide any surface flaws that are not concealed by your primer.
If your skin type is oily, your primer should take care of any excessive oils.
4. Fighting Eye Slag
Unfortunately, as we age, our eyes seem to slag or droop at the outer corners.
If a black liner seems too harsh for your complexion, try a dark brown, but stay away from color eyeliners.
5. Large Youthful Eyes
Try using a glimmer shadow as a highlighter and curl your lashes. It will make your eyes appear larger and more youthful.
6. Become Vibrant And Alive
As we age, our skin loses skin tone and color. Our once youthful, bright cheeks seem to take on a lack-luster, dull tone. Good news though – with a little color, you can capture a vibrant, youthful glow to your face.
Choose a color that works well with your particular complexion and stay away from “unnatural” shades, they won’t look right.
7. Where’d My Lips Go?
Your natural lip line seems to fade away as you age, making your lips look a great deal smaller. Also, with the fading of your lip line, your lips are prone to chapping and bleeding.
Use a smooth lip liner to draw your lip line. This will help keep your lipstick in place and make your lips appear larger and more defined.
8. Perk Up Your Lips
Choose a neutral shade, such as rose, for your lips that accentuate your skin tone, hence giving you a brighter appearance.
Stay away from lipsticks that are nude tones, they will make your lips drab. Also, stay away from bronzers, as they will give your face a sallow look.
9. Be Conservative With Your Makeup
Always apply your make up conservatively. The whole idea is to peel back a few years and look healthy and youthful. If you over due the amount of make up you put on, you will defeat the purpose. Packing make up on will make you look older than you really are.
If you suffer from dark circles under your eyes, apply a tiny dot of concealer to the inner corners of your eyes. If you have sun spots, place a tiny amount of concealer on the spots directly. Do not over apply foundations, shadows or blushes, you will not like the outcome.
