Beauty Blogger Victoria Hands Shares Some
of her Tried and Tested Makeup Tips:
MOISTURIZE! This is the most important
part of your whole make-up routine, especially when it
comes to looking more fresh faced. Make-up will be applied
much more flawlessly when your skin is drenched with

Opt for liquid concealer.
As you age you come across
more instances where your skin may need covering
up - under eye circles, dark spots, and so on--but thick
concealers can make you look older than you are and
accentuate fine lines.

Apply your makeup with a sponge.
Ideally you want
to get full coverage using as little concealer as possible,
which is why you should always use a (preferably damp)
sponge to apply your make-up. A sponge absorbs excess
foundation, while still covering up any unwanted blemishes.
Ditch your face power.
If you use colored face powder
all over your face, stop now. Again, you want to avoid the
appearance of caked on make-up at all costs. If you seriously
can’t go without powder, at least use a translucent one. 

While you’re at it, mix powders all together.
Powders build up. Skin looks healthiest with a dewy finish,
so instead opt for cream blushes/eyeshadows/bronzers.
Natural brows are key.
A more natural brow will
automatically make your whole face look younger, so be sure
not to use too dark or light of a pencil or powder, and cut
back on over tweezing. 

Curl your lashes.
As you get older, for some reason or
another, you lashes begin to straighten out. Keep that curl
going strong by using a quality eyelash curler.
Use an eye shadow primer.
Oily lids cause eye shadow
to slip and slide, which not only looks messy, but also makes
any fine lines more visible. Using an eye shadow primer will
make sure your shadow “sticks” in place.
Switch to browns.
Try swapping out your go-to black
mascara and liner for a more subtle shade of brown. It has
the same impact of black, yet is just a little bit less intense.
Step away from colored lips.
Unfortunately, as you
get older, you lips get smaller. That being said, you should
probably stick to lip colors that are close to your natural

Use a highlighter.
A highlighter, when applied at the
cheekbones, will give you a nice glow, as well as define your
face shape.
