In your twenties, your skin is healthy, plump, smooth, and bright. Even still, it’s impossible to avoid a few imperfections every now and then. You can easily hide these with a mattifying foundation or a BB cream. For your eyes, keep it simple with a trace of eyeliner, coloured or black, or a pearl eyeshadow. Highlight your lips with a pink gloss.

A hectic life and the effects of fatigue means you have to give your skin a little help. Make your skin look radiant and fresh by picking a foundation with a shimmer finish. For your eyes, rely on a smokey eye look in the evening with intensely coloured eyeshadow. For your lips, go for a natural look with nude colours or glam it up with a matte finish burgundy lipstick.

At 40, the skin starts to show signs of aging. To avoid accentuating wrinkles, use a moisturizing lifting foundation and hide dark circles and small spots with a concealer. Using coral blush on your cheekbones will make your skin look fresh. On your eyelashes, a few layers of mascara are enough to accentuate your eyes.

For mature skin, dab small amounts of foundation on your trouble zones. To boost your eyes, use champagne-coloured, brown, or plum-coloured matte eyeshadow. For your lips, accentuate the shape by drawing a pencil contour, which also helps to avoid lipstick seeping between fine lines. Complete the look and add brightness by using a satin finish lipstick.
