Discover the Best Concealer for Mature Skin

With age, the skin under and around the eyes grows thinner and loses its elasticity, making the signs of aging more prominent. An effective concealer can reduce the appearance of under-eye wrinkles, dark circles and fine lines without causing creasing, exaggerating texture, or resulting in a heavy finish.

If you’re looking for ways to disguise those pesky lines and wrinkles, we’ve composed this guide to help you discover the best eye concealer for mature skin and how to apply under-eye concealer without creasing.

How do Wrinkles Affect Concealer?  

Over time, your skin loses its natural elasticity and the levels of collagen our bodies produce gradually fall. Collagen is a protein that works to keep the skin appearing plump and youthful, so the signs of aging become more visible the lower these levels become. 

The skin around your eyes is especially delicate and prone to developing fine lines. Adjusting your makeup routine and learning how to tailor your concealer application for under-eye wrinkles is guaranteed to keep your makeup looking as smooth and seamless as possible.  

How to Prevent Under-Eye Creasing 

When it comes to preventing under-eye creasing, it’s important to use a concealer specifically designed to address the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.  

Preparing the skin with a primer infused with plumping and smoothing properties before applying concealer provides the ideal base for it to cling to without settling in lines and wrinkles.  

The Best Concealer for Mature Skin and Wrinkles

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

It has a flexible, buildable formula and is blended with our unique anti-wrinkle peptide technology, Matrixyl 3000 Plus™, to make your skin look and feel good. Additionally, it is also infused with light-reflecting particles and optical blurrers 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 

Mature skin shouldn’t be an impediment to a flawless finish and with the right routine, wrinkles and fine lines won’t interfere with your makeup look.  

Step 1: Apply a Serum and Moisturizer 

Creases form when concealer settles into fine lines and wrinkles. To avoid this, apply a serum and moisturizer to help hydrate and plump the feel of the skin to create 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. Simply apply under and around the eyes and 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 for your makeup and can prevent your concealer from settling into fine lines and wrinkles.

The No7 Airbrush Away Radiance Boosting Primer helps to create the appearance of smooth and flawless-looking skin in delicate areas such as the under-eye. Massage a pea-sized amount under and around the eyes, then leave to settle for at least 90 seconds before applying concealer.

Blended with citric acid to ensure all-day radiance and makeup wear, the Airbrush Away Radiance Boosting Primer has been specifically formulated to make it one of the best primers for under-eye wrinkles and mature skin.

Step 3: How to Apply Concealer for Under-Eye Wrinkles and 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.  

When using the Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum Concealer, glide the cushioned end of the 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: Set With a Finishing Powder  

Setting your concealer with a finishing powder helps to further reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  

Using a fluffy brush, sweep a layer of setting powder onto the under-eye area and leave for 10 minutes. The No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Pressed Powder  sports a finely-milled texture, helps to diffuse light and promote a youthful, radiant under-eye look and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

When it comes to applying concealer to mature skin, all it takes is the right products and careful application to create a flawless finish. For an all-round flawless base, discover how a primer can help to create the ultimate smooth canvas
