- 01. Switch to cream products
- 02. Pick a lightweight concealer
- 03. Invest in moisturising makeup products
01. Switch to cream products
Powders make your skin look dry and your base patchy, crinkly and cakey. On the other hand, cream and liquid products ensure smooth application and seamless finish and prevent your base makeup from cracking and creasing. Bonus points to cream blushers for lending that youthful glow.
02. Pick a lightweight concealer
Your under-eye area is the first to show signs of ageing. Think fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. A concealer does a great job of covering those under-eye wrinkles. Make sure you use a lightweight formula that doesn’t look heavy and settle in the fine lines, making them more prominent. To use: Moisturise and prime the under-eye area, apply a lightweight concealer and blend it with your fingers. Set it all in with a buff of loose powder.
03. Invest in moisturising makeup products
Be it a hydrating lipstick, a foundation with nourishing oils or a primer that promises hour-long hydration, pick it and add it to your arsenal. You’d notice your skin becomes dry and dull as it ages and thus layering it with moisturising makeup product will give you a better finish and look.
