As we age, our skin naturally loses some of its youthful glow and elasticity, and our features can start to look more tired and less defined. However, with the help of some clever makeup techniques, it’s possible to turn back the clock and create a more youthful and radiant appearance. In this blog, we’ll share some tips and tricks for using makeup to help you look and feel your best at any age.
Start with skincare
Before applying any makeup, it’s important to take care of your skin. This means cleansing, toning, and moisturising every day, as well as using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to protect your skin from sun damage. By taking good care of your skin, you’ll create a smooth and even base for your makeup, and your skin will look healthier and more youthful overall.
Use a primer
Using a primer can help your makeup stay in place and create a smooth, flawless finish. Look for a primer that’s designed to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and apply it all over your face before you start your makeup routine. We recommend Jane Iredale’s Smooth Affair Illuminating Glow Face Primer, a skin-quenching primer designed to lock in moisture, minimise the appearance of pores, and blur fine lines for a radiant, youthful appearance.
Choose the right foundation
When it comes to foundation, choose one that provides coverage without looking too heavy or cakey. A lightweight, dewy formula can help create a more youthful appearance, as it will give your skin a healthy, radiant glow. If you have any areas of hyperpigmentation or dark circles under your eyes, use a colour-correcting concealer to neutralise the discoloration after applying foundation. Jane Iredale’s brand new Glow Time Pro BB Cream not only provides lightweight coverage but also minimises the appearance of pores & fine lines for a smooth, even-looking complexion. This gorgeous product leaves a natural, dewy finish that looks fresh and healthy, perfect for anyone wanting to achieve a youthful look.
Fill in your brows
As we age, our brows can become thinner and sparser. Filling in your brows with a brow pencil or powder can help create a more defined and youthful look. Choose a shade that matches your natural brow colour, and use light, feathery strokes to fill in any gaps. The Jane Iredale Retractable Brow Pencil is a fantastic product that offers a convenient and easy-to-use solution for filling in and shaping your eyebrows.
If you’re looking for a longer-term solution, try out our eyebrow tint treatment! Using a special tinting solution, this treatment will have your eyebrows looking fuller and more defined for up to six weeks! This is the perfect option for those of you who are a little lower maintenance.
