Discover the Best Concealer for Mature Skin

best concealer for mature skin

With age, the skin under and around the eyes grows thinner and loses its elasticity, making dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles more prominent. A good concealer can reduce the appearance of these signs of aging, but it’s important to consider the needs of dry, mature skin when deciding which one to use. Read on to discover the best concealer for mature skin and learn how to apply under eye concealer without creasing. 

How do wrinkles affect concealer?  

Wrinkles form when skin begins to lose its natural elasticity. Concealer can settle into these fine lines, creating the appearance of creases.  

How to prevent under eye creasing 

It’s important to use a concealer specifically designed to address the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Without plumping and smoothing the feel of the skin prior to application, makeup will always end up creasing.  

The best concealer for mature skin  

 No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum Concealer is our best concealer for mature skin. 

This concealer has a flexible, buildable formula and is formulated with our unique anti-wrinkle peptide technology, Matrixyl 3000 Plus™. It also features optical blurrers, and light reflecting particles to cover imperfections and blemishes, conceal age spots and pigmentation, and blur the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

How to apply under eye concealer for mature skin 

Dry, uneven-looking mature skin brings its own challenges for applying concealer, but with the right routine, achieving flawless-looking skin can be easy.  

Step 1: Apply a serum and moisturizer 

Creases form when concealer settles into fine lines and wrinkles. To avoid creases, apply a serum and moisturizer to help hydrate and plump the feel of the skin, creating a smooth surface ready for makeup application. 

No7 Youthful Eye Serum is formulated with anti-aging peptides, hyaluronic acid, and brightening Vitamin C to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots. Apply under and around the eyes. Then, follow with the No7 Restore & Renew Multi-Action Eye Cream to make the eye area look brighter, lifted and more even. 

Step 2: Use a primer  

Primers create a smooth base, preventing concealer from settling into fine lines and wrinkles and helping to keep it in place all day. 

Massage a pea-sized amount under and around the eyes, then leave to settle for at least 90 seconds before applying concealer.  

No7 Airbrush Away Radiance Boosting Primer helps to create the appearance of smooth and flawless-looking skin. 

Step 3: Apply your concealer for mature skin 

Concealer should be applied to mature skin carefully using the dab and pat technique, as if applying eye cream to avoid stretching or pulling on the delicate, sensitive skin. 

Glide the cushioned end of the concealer wand under the eye, working from the inner corner to the center of the eye. Use your ring finger or a dry makeup sponge to gently pat the concealer into the skin, carefully blending it outwards. This will create a matte finish.  

For a brighter, dewy effect, repeat the above step with a damp makeup sponge. 

Step 4: Bake with a finishing powder  

Baking the concealer with a finishing powder helps to further reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Using a damp makeup sponge, apply a thick layer of finishing powder onto the under eye area and leave for 10 minutes. Then, use a fan makeup brush to sweep away the excess.  

No7 Lift & Luminate Powder seamlessly sets concealer and diffuses light, helping to blur the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and leave eyes looking noticeably healthier.
