There is no age limit on beauty. Every season of life, however, brings challenges and changes. One of those opportunities is to revisit and reinvent your look – this week, we want to give you some of our favourite tips for applying make up to ageing skin. Enjoy!

WARM UP

If your skin looks dull, use warm colours to brighten up. Experts suggest using a foundation that is a half-shade lighter than your skin tone.

LIGHTEN DARK CIRCLES

To dim dark circles under your eyes, apply foundation that’s a shade lighter than your foundation to the area. Top it with a concealer and then add a loose powder to set the makeup and hide the colour difference.

BE BRONZED, NOT TANGOED

Illuminators and bronzers can also add a sun-kissed glow. But don’t overdo it; a bad fake tan can make you look older. Get a more natural glow by blending the bronzer into your moisturizer or foundation and then applying it evenly to your face. A loose powder just one or two shades darker than your skin tone can also add warmth.

GET DEWY

Use spritzers and moisturising sprays to help set makeup and give skin a dewy look and avoid skin looking dehydrated
