Tip#1 If you usually moisturise and then apply foundation.....

Try adding a layer of primer in between your moisturizer and base. 

Using a primer makes your skin look smoother instantly.

Tip #2 If you usually dust on a mineral or powder foundation....

Try switching to a liquid formula.

Powder can be too drying, enhancing dullness and wrinkles. A luminous-finish liquid foundation will give skin a fresh look. 

Tip #3 If you usually use bronzer as your blush.... 

Try dusting your cheeks with a shade of soft, warm pink.

We actually lose colour in our skin as we mature and a pop of colour like a pink on the apples of your cheeks with give the skin a youthful glow. 

Tip #4 If you usually pencil your brows in....

If you usually…pencil your brows in

Try feathering colour lightly from outer edge to inner corner and back again.

Most women end up with a solid block of colour at the outer edge that looks too harsh and overdone. 

Use Maybelline’s Brow drama to colour the hair and then if you need to use your pencil to fill in the arch area first, followed by the tail. 

Don’t forget to look at yourself in the mirror from the distance a person would stand in front of you. They wouldn’t be up in your grill so stand back from the mirror and get a clear perspective!

Tip #5 If you usually line your upper and lower lashes in black....

Try lining the bottom in a softer shade and blend well.

A thin black liquid line, buried into the upper lashes, can make lids look more open but thick bold black liner on lower lashes can have the opposite effect, making eyes look small. 

Applying a softer shade along the bottom adds subtle definition and enhances eye shape. So try a soft shade of brown, grey, or even a light blue! 

Tip #6 If you apply multiple shadow shades....

Try swiping on a single shade of soft taupe.

You don't need to do heavy contouring on sagging lids to make them appear more lifted. An all-over application of taupe with a luminous finish makes a statement while creating the appearance of depth.

Tip #7 If you usually cover lines with concealer....

Try concealing just the dark shadows only and leave those wrinkles alone.

Applying concealer to crow’s feet will only highlight them, which defeats the purpose. Apply a cover-up that’s the same shade as your skin tone along the inner corners of your eyes and blend it three-quarters of the way out, stopping before your fine lines begin.  

Tip #8 If you usually wear gloss....

Try swapping your gloss for a lippie with a satin finish.

Lips look soft and supple when your lipstick is balmy and creamy - not wet and glittery. 

Plus, gloss tends to slip and slide and settle into the fine lines around your lips. Not very attractive!

Tip #9 If you usually apply the same “barely-there"shade of lipstick....

Try pumping up the colour!

As we age it gets harder to pull off a nude lip. A pink or coral lip will brighten up your complexion instantly. 

If you’re colour shy, dab (don’t swipe) it on lips straight from the tube and blend with your fingertip or brush for a sheerer application and don’t forget to blot in between coats!

Tip #10 If you usually apply mascara in the bathroom mirror....

Try using a magnifying mirror instead.

It can be a little depressing looking at your eye area that close up, but since lashes tend to thin out with age, a magnifying mirror can help you see and coat each and every last one.
