Your skin may be changing as you get older, but that doesn’t mean it has to look less dynamic than you’re used to. You can still achieve a glowy, radiant complexion with the right skin care routine— and as long as you have the right products in your makeup bag. It’s best to opt for hydrating formulas, blurring powder for fine lines and wrinkles, and smooth, easy-to-use liners that won’t tug on thinner skin. And we’ve got it all. Keep reading, because we’re rounding up our favorite makeup products for mature skin, below.
Prep, with skin care and a great primer, is key to getting a flawless finish with foundation. And trust us, this blurring primer delivers on its promise. Not only does it have a rosy tone to perk up dull skin, but it’s also infused with a serum to help blur the appearance of lines and pores. Don’t be surprised if the twenty-somethings in your life are sneaking it off of your vanity.
Whether you have mature skin or are simply looking for a dewy, lightweight foundation, this product is a must-have. It gives a natural, radiant finish, won’t settle into fine lines and keeps the skin hydrated all day. The best part? The formula contains SPF 50 to protect from the sun's harmful rays, which of course, can age the skin further.
If liquid foundation isn’t really your speed, give this creamy, matte compact a go. The formula, which contains a ceramide anti-oxidant complex, is ultra hydrating and blurs the appearance of pores, dark spots and lines. Just blend the foundation in an outward motion with your favorite brush — you’ll have a satin, shine-free finish in no time.
Eyelashes can start to look less voluminous with age, but this heavy duty mascara and conditioning serum duo will have your lashes looking full and thick in just a swipe. Just wiggle the brush from roots to tip and you’ll notice softer, more defined lashes with no clumping. Plus, the mascara is infused with a conditioning serum to keep lashes healthy and strong over time.
Make your lips look plump and defined by lining them before applying a lipstick or lip gloss. We love this option for mature skin because the smooth tip won’t skip across thinner areas and the transfer-proof formula won’t feather throughout the day. The liner comes in eight shades, ranging from bright red to brown. The skin on your lips might be aging, but your style can stay forever young!
Keep your cat eye game strong with this tug-free eyeliner. The waterproof formula won’t bleed or smudge — your eyeliner will stay put from morning to night. The pen also features a rubber grip to help with precise application. It’s perfect for maturing skin and eyeliner newbies.
