Make sure your lashes are

de­fined and curled

stay in line

The struc­tures that make our lips plump and full grad­u­ally break down with age, which leads to a thin­ner lip and the bor­der of the lip line soften­ing. To avoid your lip­stick bleed­ing, create def­i­ni­tion with lip

liner – but you’ve prob­a­bly been ap­ply­ing it wrong! Ap­ply your liner on the out­side edge of the lips rather than the inside as this will give the

il­lu­sion of a fuller lip.

Find your per­fect match

The big­gest mis­take women make is mis­match­ing their foun­da­tion shade – of­ten go­ing for a shade

paler than they should. Match foun­da­tion to your jaw­line, not the back of your hand, as it is the

clos­est match to your face.

Eyes wide open

Lashes open up the eye area mak­ing you look more youth­ful and awake, so you want to make sure your lashes are de­fined and curled right up from the root. Don’t un­der­es­ti­mate the power of an eye­lash curler! Heat the curler with your hairdryer for eight sec­onds to give longer hold and then clamp down on your lashes for about 15 sec­onds. A non-clump­ing mas­cara is also a non-ne­go­tiable!

Ease up on the blush

As we age, we ex­pe­ri­ence vol­ume loss in the face, which is ac­cen­tu­ated fur­ther when we overdo it with the blush. Ad­just your tech­nique. So, in­stead of brush­ing on from mouth to ear, lightly sweep blush atop cheek­bones to lift cheeks and help con­ceal any gaunt­ness.
