Easy Age-Defying Makeup Tips
Swap your standard black eyeliner for a navy shade. The deep blue hue enhances the whites of eyes, making them really pop. Brush a shimmery champagne shadow all over the lid, though not too close to the brow bone. Forget the age-old rumor that shimmer is taboo past your 20s—just keep it light and refined. A pinky-beige lip is the final touch.

Juicy, berry-tinted lips are fresh and flattering for all ages, says Joanna Schlip, celebrity makeup artist for Physicians Formula. Use a chubby pencil to get a wash of color—not too glossy but not too matte, since that can spotlight fine lines. Keep the look clean and classic with black mascara and groomed brows.

Good to Glow
Create youthful radiance with two types of bronzer, suggests Schlip. Proper application and a two-step approach are key. With a brush dipped in matte bronzer, follow the shape of a 3 on each side of your face: Start at the top center of your forehead, curve around the outer eye to the cheekbone and end at the jawline. Next, make a T across your forehead and down the nose with shimmery bronzer to highlight. Finish with copper eyeshadow and sheer lipgloss.
