While those in their teens and early twenties take wrinkle-free skin for granted, those of us who are a little older have to get creative to look our best. As makeup courses show us, you have to approach mature skin differently if you want to get the desired results.

Thankfully, there are a ton of makeup tutorial videos to help everyone with their skin, but we also seek to assist here with a blog that looks at how to make those fine lines and wrinkles disappear through the clever use of makeup. So, sit back, relax and let’s get to it!

Approach the Issue With a Silicone Primer

Take a makeup artist course online, and you’ll invariably get shown that professionals tend to opt for a silicone-based primer for mature skin. That’s because the silicone can effectively fill in the lines and minute valleys that might exist there, resulting in a lovely, smooth surface on which to apply the foundation. It’s also best applied with your fingers or a small brush, as a sponge will simply soak it up.

Stop Using Powder-based Makeup Setting Products

Powder-based setting products have long been the preferred choice for ladies around the world, but as your skin ages, it’s perhaps time to switch to something else. The reason for this is that powder most often settles into the wrinkles on your skin, which can’t help but make things look worse. When you’re younger, use away, but as those wrinkles start coming, it’s usually time to stop. 

Pay Attention To Defining Your Pout!

Covered early on in most good beauty courses online is the fact that getting your makeup right around the lips will go a long way to making you look younger. Using a lip primer gives you a great base on which to apply your lipstick. It should be exactly the same colour as your lipstick, too, to avoid filling in and feathering any wrinkles and lines you have around the mouth.

Avoid Using False Eyelashes

In some cases, you will learn from online makeup courses that false eyelashes often do nothing to make you look younger when you’ve got mature skin. That’s because the weight of the lashes actually draws attention to any sagginess in the upper eyelids or adjacent crow’s feet. Instead, go for mascara and an eyelash curler, which will offer a much better result.
