When it comes to makeup, if not used correctly, it can do a lot more harm than good - especially as you get older.

Steps to follow:


The first thing you should know is that less is more. If you used to make up your face with a base of maximum coverage, you should stop. Thick layers of makeup emphasise wrinkles, so a light, slightly oily base is best.


You should use translucent powder for your face because it is the best for covering imperfections and provides a more natural finish because it doesn't highlight wrinkles, as often happens with compact powder.


The lips should preferably be a neutral tone, such as beige, pink or terracotta. Avoid any kind of gloss or very bright colors that can highlight the wrinkles at the corners of your lips.


The ideal colors for eye shadows are grey, brown, beige, orange, and ideally apply a light coat of the eye shadows and mascaras.

Avoid using eyeliner because lining your eyes at the top or bottom hardens your face, causing your look to become stronger which unfortunately can make you look older.


Use the blusher of your choice, as this is one of the few cosmetics that remains unchanged with age. For very white skin colors, any tone is good and for honey brown skin tones, coral colors are best.


As always - and regardless of age! - moisturising is essential for perfect makeup, because it makes the skin smoother and healthier, which makes it look great too. Moisturise your face every day when you wake up and before bed.
