Glowing, young face.
- When you are growing old, your skin starts to sag and lose its moisture content. So that your makeup doesn’t look like blotched, use some glycolic acid. Use some moisturizer after that and give your face the natural oils it needs. Use a foundation which has a yellowish texture to it. This will give your skin some glow. Also select something that gives your skin some spark.
- The right way to apply your foundation is with the help of a sponge. Soak a sponge in water and squeeze out the water. Now take a small quantity of your foundation and use your sponge to apply it on your face. Blend in slowly.
- As you grow old it starts showing on your skin. It looks pasty. Rather than using a cream based concealer try out the liquid based one. It will help you hide those fine lines and wrinkles.
- Avoid powders and use more of cream based products to help your skin retain its moisture.

- To give your lips the feel of being fuller apply some Vaseline to the middle portion of your lip. You can even apply gloss.
- Always apply some balm and sunscreen on your lips to protect them.
