5 Anti-aging Makeup Tips

Brighten Up

As we age, our skin naturally becomes thinner -- a result of our birthdays and years of sun damage over our lifetime. As we age, the fatty layer in our skin gets thinner, the elastin and collagen breaks down, and our eyes begin to look a little more hollow and wrinkled. And our skin begins to lose its luster and appears dull.

To return a lovely glow to your skin, try using makeup that contains light-reflecting ingredients, or try a mineral makeup. And to camouflage any dark areas under your eyes -- and the inner corner -- consider using a yellow-toned concealer to offset not only dark circles but also any bothersome brown spots as well.
