5 Anti-aging Makeup Tips

Emphasize Your Apples

Want to bring back your youthful glow? Emphasize your apples. And by apples we mean cheeks. And by cheeks we mean the ones on your face. It's easy to find the apples of your cheeks: Smile and they'll show themselves. As we age our face begins to hollow, and emphasizing the apples can help draw attention to the fullness of your face, as well as appear to give your cheeks a bit of a lift.

If you suffer from dry skin, consider trying a cream blush instead of a powder. Oily-skinned ladies have both powder and cheek stain options for their best results. Apply blush with a light touch. You're goal is to give your face a healthy flush, not draw attention to your makeup.
