PLUMP UP YOUR POUT

Add vol­ume to thin lips with a lip­pie that con­tains col­la­gen. Look for hy­drat­ing in­gre­di­ents like hyaluronic acid or oils. Try 1 It Cos­met­ics Vi­tal­ity Lip Blush Hy­drat­ing Gloss Stain $34 – it con­di­tions and min­imises lines, too.

UPGRADE YOUR TOOLS

For an air­brushed fin­ish, switch your makeup brush (or fin­ger­tips!) for a blend­ing sponge. Use it to ap­ply liq­uid, cream or pow­der, but wet it slightly first so prod­uct blends seam­lessly and doesn’t sink into wrin­kles. Try 2 Beau­ty­blender $30

LOOK AF­TER YOUR LASHES

Eye­lashes be­come finer and straighter over time, so curl­ing them be­fore ap­ply­ing a vo­lu­mis­ing and nour­ish­ing mas­cara such as 3 L’oreal Paris Vol­ume Mil­lion Lashes $24.95 will do won­ders. Al­ways wash off be­fore bed as pig­ments can ac­cen­tu­ate dark cir­cles.

PREP & PRIME

If you’re a stranger to primer, get ac­quainted now! It does way more than just keep your face in place. In­vest in one that also blurs lines, evens out skin tex­ture and bright­ens. We like 4 Der­ma­log­ica Sk­in­per­fect Primer SPF30 $72.50

COLOUR & DE­FINE

As we age, our com­plex­ion can ap­pear sal­low and skin can dry out. Bring back a nat­u­ral flush to your cheeks with a liq­uid blush like 5 Per­ri­cone MD No Blush Blush $50. This clever anti-age­ing treat­ment adapts to your skin tone with shade-ad­just­ing tech­nol­ogy. To de­fine and slim, we like 6 May­belline Mas­ter Con­tour V-face Duo Stick $19.95

BUILD UP YOUR BROWS

Good eye­brows can knock years off by fram­ing and lift­ing your face. Brow hair be­comes more sparse the older we get, so softly fill them in with a light, waxy crayon like 7 L’oreal Paris Brow Artist Maker $20.95

CON­CEAL & CORRECT

If you want to dis­guise dark cir­cles then steer clear of light-re­flect­ing cor­rec­tors – they make im­per­fec­tions more no­tice­able on ma­ture skin. In­stead choose a light­weight, hy­drat­ing prod­uct such as 8 El­lis Faas Con­cealer $46

BOOST YOUR BASE

Upgrade to a col­la­gen­boost­ing for­mula such as 9 O Cosmedics 1Skin Nat­u­ral Fu­sion Treat­ment Foun­da­tion $59 or 10 Revlon Age De­fy­ing DNA Ad­van­tage Pow­der $34.95
