Makeup is not just an art that helps you express yourself. It is also incredibly empowering because it helps you look and feel like the best version of yourself at any age. When it comes to doing your makeup, your technique is a total game-changer in how the look will eventually turn out. If you’re over 50 and have concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, don’t you worry.
In fact, embrace the aging process because you can always rely on a bit of makeup to help you put your best face forward.
Prepping your face is a must if you want your makeup to look flawless and last all day long. Use a hydrating moisturizer and a primer to go with it. A primer will even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of large pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Ladies, no matter what your age is, everyone needs sun protection. This primer is a must-try because it doubles as a sunscreen. Its lightweight formula creates the perfect canvas for the rest of your makeup, while your skin is protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays. It also makes your makeup last longer and brightens up your complexion in an instant.
Use A Foundation That’s Lightweight
Using the right foundation or BB cream makes a world of a difference. A lightweight formula will help your base look more natural and radiant (and nobody wants to end up with a cakey finish). Apply your foundation with a damp Beauty Blender or brush, and blend it in really well to achieve the right amount of coverage.
