As people age, the skin loses its elasticity. Those who are 30 and above are at risk of developing wrinkles. Wrinkles are one of the most common skin problems of today’s society that affects millions of people around the world.
If you’re looking for the best makeup for wrinkled skin, consider these tips:
- First, you’ll want to look for a foundation that’s moisturizing. This will help to keep your skin healthy and hydrated, so it won’t become even drier and more wrinkled as a result of putting on makeup.
- If your skin is very dry and wrinkled, then try using a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid in it. This ingredient helps to plump up the skin, filling in those pesky lines and crevices so that your face looks younger and more vibrant.
- You can also try using a primer before applying your foundation if you have dry skin or wrinkles around your eyes or mouth area (which is where most people experience them). A good primer will help fill in those lines with color, making them less noticeable when you put on foundation overtop of them!
- For all other areas of your face where you don’t have wrinkles yet but want to prevent them from developing over time (like around the nose area), I recommend trying an eye cream with retinol in it! Retinol has been shown in studies to help smooth out fine lines while also boosting collagen production within our bodies–so once again we’re

Choosing the Best Makeup for Aging Skin
Aging affects the body in a number of mysterious ways, but the first place you’ll notice your age starting to show is your skin. Wrinkles, crows feet, frown lines, the list goes on and on. While quality skin care is as accessible as ever, it’s not just about how you care for your complexion at home. It’s equally as important to treat your skin delicately when it comes to doing your makeup. Let’s take a closer look at some of our expert tips for applying your makeup like a pro, even as you mature.
Makeup tips for mature skin
1. Prep your skin with a hydrating primer
Regardless of where you’re headed on the way out the door, you want your makeup to last the duration of your day. For those with mature skin, prepping with a hydrating primer can extend the longevity of your look. A high quality primer will smooth the surface of your skin, filling in fine lines or wrinkles and blurring any imperfections.
Adding an extra 5-10 minutes to your routine for properly priming your face can lengthen the life of your favorite cosmetic products. Be sure to look for a primer with all-natural, hydrating ingredients ideal for targeting aging skin, like the Moody Sisters Makeup & Face Primer. With a silky soft texture and a whole host of hydrating ingredients, this makeup primer is ideal for aging skin. This formula is lightweight and wears well beneath all types of concealers and foundations.

2. Opt for a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer
A liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer is most likely to compliment a maturing complexion. Unlike powder formulas, liquid foundations are less likely to settle into your pores and fine lines. They’re more flattering for aging skin, as they possess hydrating properties to naturally create that coveted dewy finish. Liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers blend better than powders and can be applied with a brush, sponge, or even clean fingertips.
Another quick tip—steer clear of full-coverage foundations and instead look for a lightweight formula that offers light to medium buildable coverage. That way, you can be as demure or dramatic as you’d like. We recommend the Moody Sisters Liquid Mineral Foundation. Made with a combination of organic ingredients, this weightless foundation comes in twelve unique shades with color-adjusting technology.

3. Adopt a “less is more” approach
Applying your makeup in a dark or dramatic way may end up overemphasizing your insecurities. As you mature, we advise adopting a “less is more” approach to doing your makeup. It’s all about aging gracefully, so swap your bold eyeshadows for something more subtle, replace your red lip, and don’t go rogue with the rouge. Our Moody Sisters Organic Mineral Gloss in shade Delicate Petal is age appropriate for everyday wear. Coconut oil and shea butter combine to moisturize your lips so they appear perfectly plump.

4. Use brown eyeliner and mascara instead of black
The secret to softening your eye makeup? Reach for brown eyeliner and mascara instead of black. Believe it or not, black mascara and eyeliner can drag down the eyes and leave them looking tired no matter how well you slept. Trendy as black maybe, it’s intended to create a bold look that’s not necessarily the most natural. Brown is much less harsh and wears just as well as black regardless of what you’re wearing.
Reach for the Moody Sisters Natural Mascara for luscious lashes in a jiff. Water resistant and hypoallergenic, this mascara will condition your lashes so you’ll never notice dryness or flaking.

5. Line your lips for definition
An unfortunate symptom of aging is losing lip fullness and definition. This means your lip color is more likely to bleed into the tiny lines that form around the perimeter of your pucker. Luckily, lip liners are designed to breathe definition into deflated pouts with just a bit of patience and a steady hand. It can get pricey to purchase a liner to match every lip shade that you own. That’s why we recommend a clear lip liner that you can apply as a sheer solution to lining your lips with ease.
6. Try cream blush instead of powder
Powder product formulas are most likely to trigger dryness, which is already a side-effect of aging. That’s why we suggest choosing creamy, moisturizing makeup whenever possible. Cream blushes, like our Tinted Cheek & Lip Sticks, give you a more youthful appearance and provide a natural flush that blends into the skin. Powder blushes, on the other hand, sit on top of the skin and settle into wrinkles and creases. Cream formulas ensure your makeup looks dewy and luminous all day long.

7. Be sure to blend
Using a damp makeup sponge works incredibly well on maturing skin. A sponge will soak up excess product that could otherwise settle into creases and lines, causing your complexion to look cakey. Applying your foundation, blush, and bronzer with a moistened makeup sponge also helps add hydration. If it’s that flawless finish that you desire, you can’t go wrong blending with a beauty sponge.
8. Choose hydrating cosmetics that won’t crease
Any chance you get to opt for cream products over powder, do so. Look for moisture-rich ingredients and products specially formulated for all day wear. There are plenty of products out there that are designed to outlast sun, sweat, and whatever the day throws your way.
9. Lengthen and define your brows
Another unusual side-effect of aging is how body hair begins to lighten and thin. On one hand, you can say “so long” to expensive razors, but on the other hand, thinning brows can be a bummer. Fortunately, adding fullness to your brows is easier than you may think. First, choose a product designed for precision especially if your brow hairs are super sparse.
We recommend a brow pencil with a tapered tip that, with small strokes, can fill in any gaps in your natural browline. Moody Sisters has just the product to do the trick with our Prescision Eyebrow Pencil. With an angled retractable tip on one end and a soft spooly on the other, this eyebrow is equipped with everything you need to line and fill your brows at home or on-the-go.
