You can still look your most beautiful after 40. Just look at Jennifer Lopez or Meryl Streep! Yeah, yeah, they are celebrities and most celebrities use fillers and botox, etc., but not ALL of them!
The only things you need sometimes are a consistent skincare routine, good quality makeup products, and the right makeup to keep looking and feeling your best.
As we age, our skin starts losing more collagen, becoming less able to repair itself and that’s how we get our glorious wrinkles! But you know what, you learn to love them, and then you want to take care of them! How do you do that? Tweak your skincare routine and follow these makeup tips from celebs that every woman in her 40s or older should try!

Skin cleansing is what every woman should do regardless of age. But being 40 or older requires a special routine!
Start your day by giving your skin a dose of youthfulness. Here is how to do it:
Facial hydration should be a priority in your skincare routine, so make sure to wash your face every morning and night with a hydrating facial cleanser like Neutrogena’s ultra-gentle cleanser or CeraVe hydrating cleanser.
There are plenty of anti-aging skin products out there, but you’ve got to be picky because what works for someone else’s skin may not work on yours. But anyway, here are some anti-aging cleansers, creams, and serums that many swear by.
AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Face Moisturizer
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream
TruSkin Vitamin C Serum for Face with Hyaluronic Acid
L’Oreal Revitalift Cicacream
Using the right anti-aging skincare product for you will rejuvenate your skin and give it a healthy glow!
Note: If you have sensitive skin, avoid anti-aging products with retinol as it can potentially cause skin irritation. Opt for products with bakuchiol instead, since it’s more gentle on sensitive skin.
Now is makeup time!
Special makeup tips for you!
Tip #1: Use pre-makeup primer/serum:
A primer can go a long way. You can choose the tone that suits your skin and it will be the perfect base for your foundation, helping it spread thoroughly rather than accumulate on your skin.
So, before you apply foundation, prep your skin using a pre-makeup product like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Glow primer or the NYX High Glass primer. These reputed primer brands will enhance your look
Tip #2: Pick the right foundation:
The way you apply foundation is different when it comes to mature skin, and so is the type of foundation you use.
Let me explain: Because older skin gets dry so fast due to decreased cell renewal and natural oil, etc., you should definitely go for cream-based foundations to keep your skin hydrated and healthy-looking.
Let’s look at some of the finest foundations to purchase:
Nude Air Serum Foundation
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint
COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation
Tip #3: Use cream highlighter
There are different types of highlighters: powder highlighter, brick highlighter, stick highlighter, liquid highlighter, strobing cream highlighter, etc. Take your pick!
But like with foundation, you need that stick or creamy highlighter that will make your skin glow inside out, keep it hydrated, and more importantly, keep you looking fresh and gorgeous! A creamy highlighter gives a smoother result, without making your skin look too oily or shiny.
Here are some of the best highlighters to try:
Cloud – Rose Gold
Maybelline New York Makeup
Tip #4: Use a good concealer
Naturally, you want to conceal age spots or sun spots and reduce smile lines. That is why you should not skip on concealer. On the other hand, you don’t want to overdo it and end up with a cake face.
Opt for concealer to give your face full coverage and look classy, not cakey!
NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP
Maybelline New York Dream Brightening Creamy Concealer
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Tip #5: Some cream blush
Instead of standard blushes, look for creamy blushes. You can apply your cream blush not only to your cheekbones but also to your temple to achieve a more natural and radiant look.
Honest Beauty Crème Cheek Blush
Golden Rose Creamy Blush Stick
Milani Baked Blush
And who doesn’t like some luscious-looking lips to go with their lush cheeks!
Look at these for example:
NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Soft Matte Lip Cream
SmashBox Nude Lip Liner
NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Matte Lipstick
Go for a pigmented or matte lipstick and flip that hair because you’re looking fab!
