Skin care

Skin comes first and a good skin regime is key. The better you take care of your skin, the less make-up you will need.

Primer

No moisturiser is going to make your wrinkles or fine lines disappear, but applying a primer before putting on foundation will fill the lines on your face.

Foundation

Choose the right foundation for your skin tone to have a unified skin. Your skin tone changes seasonally – you might be a bit lighter in winter than in summer.

Lips

Avoid wearing pastel lips as these are shades for the younger crowds. Dark, rich tones will work well with matured skin.

Eyes

Use a pencil to line your eyes to create definition instead of liquid or gel liners as they can be harsh on ageing eyes.

Cheeks

Add a flash of colour to your cheeks by using blush, but be careful not to overdo it. Highlighter on the cheek is awesome to enhance the areas you want; however, on skin that has wrinkles, it can make the lines more visible. Try using a mineralise blush as a highlighter so there is not too much shimmer.
