Our skin naturally gets drier and begins to sag as we get older. As well as the signs of ageing, additional factors such as exposure to sun and smoking cause fine lines, freckles and age spots. The temptation is to apply a heavy foundation to cover these imperfections. However, a thick, matte foundation exacerbates dryness and wrinkles.
You can bring out the best in mature skin by using three products, including concealer, light reflecting foundation and an oil free loose powder to enhance your features.
It is best to start with a concealer for trouble spots like under the eyes or for hyperpigmentation. This concealer will cover up redness, broken capillaries, dark circles and sun damage. A light reflecting foundation like Elizabeth Arden Perfectly Satin Foundation (€38 at Whelehans) has amazing effects. Using a sponge, blend carefully along the hair and jaw line to ensure an even and flawless finish. Elizabeth Arden Perfectly Satin Foundation has light reflectors to illuminate your skin and to soften the look of fine lines. If you suffer from dry skin, use a moisturising foundation such as Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Foundation (€45 at Whelehans). Finally, dust on loose powder with a large powder brush for light coverage; Elizabeth Arden Ceremide Powder (€38 at Whelehans) is a great option. The result will be a healthy and glowing look.
