Light, liquid consistencies that cover the skin like a veil and do not creep into the wrinkles are well suited. Mary Greenwell recommends Chanel’s "Les Beiges" foundation, which has a light texture that is perfect for mature skin and acts as a visual soft focus.
By the way: Only if you suffer from extremely oily skin, you should use a completely matte foundation. Otherwise, make-up with a soft shiny finish looks better and makes you look fresher and younger. Exactly the same goes for concealer: prefer light-reflecting products.

3. Mature skin makeup: the eye makeup may turn out intense
With the years we lose some definition in the eye area. The skin is a bit flabbier, which sometimes makes us look tired. But with the right makeup tricks, you can quickly create an awake, intense look!
A must for mature skin is a good eye primer. It keeps the color in place, and that’s important because otherwise the pigments could settle into laugh lines. Urban Decay’s "Primer Portion" is a favorite of many professionals and matches any eyeshadow because of its neutral color.
Especially the eye make-up can be a little stronger. This means that you should use stronger eye shadows as well as eyeliner and mascara. Makeup artist Lisa Eldridge also recommends this tip – check out her makeup technique in the video below to learn more:
4. Lips: More color, more freshness
With age, the natural lip line can fade a bit, making your lips look thinner than they actually are. No problem: Simply draw the contour with a lipliner that is slightly darker than your natural lip color. This is recommended by the British Charlotte Tilburry, who usually makes up stars like Amal Clooney, Kate Moss or Gisele Bundchen.
Charlotte recommends going for a stronger lipstick color and not being afraid of fresh colors. Delicate berry tones look great on mature skin. Just be bold!
Matte lipsticks make lips look thinner and drier.

5. Blush: Do not apply too deeply
A touch of color on the cheeks gives you a wonderful glow and a healthy glow. Charlotte Tilburry recommends: apply lipstick first and then blush. This way you don’t risk getting too much color on your face.
