In terms of a youthful-looking appearance, taking care of your skin is super-important—that means gently cleansing, moisturizing twice a day, and slathering on SPF every morning before you go outside—to help keep your complexion in tip-top shape. But using the right makeup products (hello, blush) and makeup techniques (nice to see you, concealer blender) can also help to keep you looking young. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and add these five tips and tricks to your makeup routine ASAP!

1. Conceal Your Imperfections

Dark spots and deep, dark under-eye circles can be a dead giveaway of your age. That’s where a color correcting palette comes in. The L'Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit comes with four concealer hues: peach to disguise dark circles and dark spots, green to neutralize redness, purple to counteract dullness, and yellow to hide discoloration. Use your shade (or shades!) of color correcting concealer sparingly, then follow up with a flesh-toned concealer. Pro tip: Apply concealer with a makeup sponge, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender.

2. Pick a Luminous Finish Foundation

If you’ve got dull skin, steer clear of matte finish foundation and opt for one that has a luminous finish instead. Try the L'Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Cushion Foundation, which provides a luminous liquid foundation in a cushion compact. To use, press the applicator into the cushion, tap the applicator gently onto your skin, and build coverage as needed.

3. Go for Bigger, Bolder Brows

Good news, ladies: Big, bold brows are in! Yep, gone are the days that pencil-thin brows were all the rage. Want to fill your brows in? Use the L'Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Kabuki Blender, a creamy pencil that comes with a kabuki blending brush. Start with clean, brushed brows, then use the tip of the crayon to fill them in. Build to your desired intensity, then blend in with the kabuki blending brush. For a more undone look, brush against the direction of your brow hairs.

4. Brighten Up Your Eyes with White Eyeliner

Didn’t get enough sleep last night? Don’t worry! No one will have to know you’re exhausted—if you use the right makeup products. It’s time to add a white or nude eyeliner to your makeup bag. Lining your waterline (a.k.a. inside your lower lash line) with a white or nude eyeliner can help to create the illusion of brighter-looking eyes. You can also apply a little liner to the inner corner of your eyes. Then, use an eyelash curler to help open up your eyes even more. For the finishing touch, swipe on a coat of volumizing mascara, like the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara.

5. Fake a Rosy Glow with Blush

It’s true: Rosy cheeks have always symbolized the essence of youth. Lacking that rosy glow? Add a touch of color to your cheeks by using a light pink blush. Try the L'Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush, available in 12 shades. Simply sweep the blush where the sun naturally hits your face—think your forehead, cheeks, chin, and the bridge of your nose.

6. Skip the Setting Powder and Use a Setting Spray Instead

Finishing off your look with a setting product can help to keep it in place longer. But powder can settle into lines, so opt for a setting spray instead. Spritz on the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Makeup Extender Setting Spray once you’re done with your makeup application. Shake the bottle well, and holding it eight to 10 inches away from your face, close your eyes and spray it four to six times in an X and T motion.
