There are no strict rules in makeup – first of all, it's a field for self-expression. However, you should take into account your skin type and its age-related needs. Products that were relevant at 30 may lose their effectiveness at 40+.

First of all, experts advise taking care of pre-moisturizing the skin. The Sun magazine has revealed how to create the perfect complexion and mask pores.

A dense foundation can clog wrinkles and create a mask effect. In the summer, thirsty skin produces more sebum, and mattifying products will only clog pores. Therefore, you should avoid cosmetics that are too drying or matting. Excess oil can be blotted off with special wipes.

To reduce pores, experts recommend applying loose powder immediately before the primer. This technique is also known as the Goss method, in honor of the famous makeup artist Wayne Goss.

To create an even skin tone, choose a concealer of the right shade. The color should be half a shade darker than your natural skin tone, and it is better to apply it using the dot method – this will hide age spots and other irregularities on the face and create a great shadow effect.

Always wear sunscreen, especially in summer. It's a great investment in youth and health. Experts advise paying attention to the fact that the care products contain zinc oxide to block both UVA and UVB rays. You can also protect your skin from UV radiation and reduce pores with mineral powder. An added bonus is that it will eliminate the need to renew your SPF cream every 3-4 hours.

Use products with vitamin C to brighten your skin, and don't forget to apply them to your neck.

You can try combining cream and powder blush. This will make your skin glow and visually reduce your age. Apply cream blush directly to the cheeks, then lightly blend it with a powder product on top, stretching the tone diagonally across the cheekbones for a light lifting effect.
