With the beauty counters groaning under the weight of expensive anti-ageing creams, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the quest for youthful beauty is a pursuit solely for the rich.
But if you’re watching your wallet this Spring, never fear, there are plenty of makeup tricks that will take years off you.
For a youthfully glowing base, opt for a primer before you apply any other makeup. Not only will it even out your skin tone, it’ll absorb any excess oil, so makeup is less likely to smear or sit in visible fine lines. Try Laura Mercier Primer, which will give your skin a gorgeous sheen.
Forget heavy foundation this spring, and go for a luxe tinted moisturiser. Not only will it nourish your skin but the lightweight formula will keep your face looking fresh and youthful with a more airbrushed look. Try Dior Capture Totale Radiance Reveal Tinted Moisturiser.
Skin gets drier as we get older so cream blusher is far more flattering as powder blush tends to cling to lines and creases, whereas cream smoothes over them. Try Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cheekcolour Cream Blusher.
Ditch dark hues and opt for a pop of pink which will instantly update your look and make your lips look fuller and more youthful to boot. Try Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte.
Give yourself a really bright, wide awake look by using a pale or white eyeliner on the inner lids of your eyes. Try Korres Colour Soft Eyeliner in White. © Cover Media
