With age, our skin and the way makeup finishes on our skin also changes, so our makeup and application method should also change. Tailoring the placement of makeup, the formula applied, and the technique used to the characteristics of mature skin can make all the difference when looking to achieve a youthful glow.
Read our top makeup tips for older women to learn how to create a brightened, refreshed and smooth-looking appearance with the best makeup for mature skin.
What to look for in makeup for mature skin
With age, collagen levels in the skin naturally deplete, causing a loss in plumpness and elasticity, and enhancing the appearance of wrinkles.
As such, the best makeup for mature skin boasts a lightweight, sheer formula that doesn’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles, and is infused with key hydrating ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and Vitamin C, to help moisturize and brighten for younger-looking skin.
Makeup tips for older women
The best makeup for mature skin helps refresh and brighten, while smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful-looking, lifted effect. The secret to achieving that younger look with makeup lies in the prep, product choice, and correct application.
Tip 1: Follow an anti-aging skincare routine
Think of your makeup routine as a continuation of your skincare regimen. Before applying makeup, follow a strict anti-aging skincare routine (cleanse, tone, serum, eye cream, and moisturizer) to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and create a smooth, hydrated canvas, ready for the application of your makeup for mature women.
After cleansing and toning, apply an age-defying serum, like No7 Line Correcting Booster Serum, to help fill out fine lines for skin that looks up to 5 years younger*. Then, apply a moisturizer, like No7 Restore & Renew, for smoother-looking skin in one week.
