20s: Get the Glow
Make a statement with a vibrant cheek color. Try M.A.C. High-Light Powder in Marine Life ($26). "A coral blush mixed with bronzy gold is a great way to add warmth to the skin without piling on bronzer," says Dell Ashley, Yves Saint Laurent's national makeup artist. Adds Kate Lee, a Chanel celebrity makeup artist, "Vivid shades look best when applied on the apples of your cheeks." Try these beauty tricks from the runways.
30s: Add a Jolt of Color
Sheer neon glosses like Chanel Brilliant Lip Shine in Laser ($27) let you incorporate fun, flattering shades into your look without appearing as though you're trying too hard. "You can wear the gloss alone or layer a dab of it over a nude lipstick for a more neutral pout," instructs Lee. We like CoverGirl Continuous Color Lipstick in In the Nude ($6). You must know these beauty secrets.
40s: Think Pink
Accessorize with a bright polish like Revlon Nail Enamel in Bubble Gum ($4.79). "At this age, pink allows you to have fun with color but still appear classic and chic," explains OPI executive VP and artistic director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. "I like to stay in the same color family on fingers and toes. If your fingernails are a hot pink, try a soft pink on your toes, like OPI Nail Lacquer in It's a Girl! [$8.50]." Here are some more pretty shades to try.
50s: Lighten Up
Reviving tired, aging eyes is simple with a pale-pink liner like Yves Saint Laurent Long-Lasting Eye Pencil in Silky Pink ($28). Ashley recommends blending it under the arch of your brow to give the illusion that it's raised and penciling it on the inner bottom lash lines and in the corners of your eyes to open them up. Finish with a matte beige shadow close to lashes. Try Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Café au Lait ($22). Try these skin-care secrets.
