5 Anti-aging Makeup Tips

Ditch the Dark Circles

The skin around our eyes is normally thin, but as we age it begins to lose its elasticity and plumpness. What that can result in is skin around the eyes looking translucent -- dark circles appear darker, and blood vessels may show through. This can make you appear tired and can add years to your face.

Erase those circles and other under-eye imperfections with a thick eye cream and a yellow-based under-eye concealer. First, lightly apply an eye cream to help hydrate your skin (and help keep wrinkles at bay). Then apply an under-eye concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin tone. Voila, look at your peepers now.
