Did you know that eyelashes thin out and lose curl as you age? Aside from using eyelash growth serums, you can perk up your lashes by adding a little bit of powder before putting on your mascara. This makes them look thicker and fuller.

The last important makeup how-to tip - is to go easy on the lipstick, especially with the color and consistency.
As we age, a lighter colored lipstick or lip gloss tone really does make a difference. Stay away from dark matte lipsticks.

My favorite makeup how to lipstick trick is to use one of those long-lasting lipstick stains - yes, I know - they're very drying. But, then I apply Chapstick or a thick, hydrating lip gloss on top once the lipstick stain dries.
