One of the common signs of aging is skin dryness and the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. Because of this, most women over 40 think that it is impossible to achieve a glowing skin at this age. Read on for some great tips!


For your information, make up products are made available for this very purpose. While there are lots of ways for you to slow down the aging process of your skin, we all know that the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles and fine lines will soon be inevitable. Lucky for you, you have your make up products to help you out.

Here are some make up tips that you must know about if you wish to achieve the seemingly impossible glowing skin that you wan. You can glow of natural with these tips:

The very first thing that you have to do is to create a smooth palette for your makeup. When you apply moisturizer to your skin prior to make up application, the surface of the skin will be a lot smoother and your make up will look flawless. In addition to that, it will also last for a long time. Lastly, it helps you to achieve that dewy and glowing skin.


1. Apply lip gloss.

Lip sticks, especially one in loud and bright colors, will make you look trying hard. If you just wish to look younger than your age, avoid opting for colors that only teenagers would wear. Instead, opt for a lip gloss that will provide natural shine to your lips. This will enhance the look of your lips in the most subtle way possible.

2. Apply concealer.

You may think that your crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles are not visible but without concealer, it will become very obvious. For your age, it is recommended that you opt for a liquid concealer so it can also provide the hydration that your skin needs. Plus, it is a lot easier to apply than powder. When applying, avoid rubbing your fingers into your skin as it can cause friction and may even lead to wrinkle development. The best way to apply concealer is by applying then dabbing. After applying adequate amount of concealer, you can easily distribute it by dabbing or tapping your fingers into your face and continue doing sop until the concealer is properly applied. Finish off with some primer to se the concealer in place.

3. Avoid the use of powder.

If you want the dewy looking skin, then you have to steer clear of powders as it can make the skin look matte. Leave your compact powders and foundation behind and grab loose powders instead. It is best that you use loose powder in moderation. After putting on liquid foundation, use loose powder to set the foundation in place. In this way, you will be able to achieve healthy looking skin.

4. Put on some blush.

Avoid blush products with too much red shade. Instead, opt for one in rosy shade that will certainly make your skin look more naturally healthy and appealing. Apply this in the apple of your cheeks and you can be able to have that natural blush.

5. Opt for medium coverage foundation.

Since you have so much to hide (i.e. wrinkles and lines), you may think that the best type of foundation for you would be ones with high coverage foundation. Truth is, it would be best that you go with a medium coverage foundation. Additionally, it would also be great that you opt for one that is silicon-based. Not only will it be able to conceal veins, this type of foundation will also boost the dewiness of your skin as well. If you want to lighten up your skin, there is also a skin lightening cream for dark skin.
