Fabulous Over 40: 10 Top Make Up Tips

Whether you've just turned 40, you're heading down the pike towards 50 or a glam doll who's changing the world at 60, super celebrity make-up guru Michael Maron offers these 10 make up tips on how to look fabulous ... at any age!

1. Avoid heavy foundation for over 40 skin, or powders, and always try to match what you use to your complexion color, rather than trying to add color to your face with a darker foundation or powder.

2. Don't use blushes or bronzers with a muddy or a brown tone. This tends to age skin and could make brown spots appear darker.

3. Avoid ultra light concealer under the eyes. This brings out puffiness and increases the look of the "tear trough" indentation under the eye. Instead, choose a color that matches your skin tone and blend well.

4. Always apply foundation before you apply concealer – you might not need as much as you think.

5. Avoid frosted, glittery, or very bright eye shadows – they'll accentuate wrinkly skin above the eye.

6. Do make lips look fuller by moisturizing and using lip liner – but make certain it's the same color as your lipstick. If you use colorless lipgloss, choose a lip liner that matches your own lip color and always blend it before adding the gloss. The look of the "heavy lip outline" is gone!

7. Do line eyes, but chose either a soft pencil or a liquid liner you can smudge slightly. A hard line around the eye is aging – so are clumps of heavy mascara, so keep it light.

8. Do not apply blush on the "apples" of the cheeks. As you age, the "apples" go south and color here ages the face. Instead keep blush higher on the face, the tops of the cheekbones is perfect for most women.

9. Avoid brow pencils that give a "shiny" or hard look. Instead opt for a powder or soft pencil – and always match your hair color.

10. Don't over powder your face – even the lightest products can age you if you use too much.
