As the times change, our clothing choices may evolve to meet the latest trends, our shoes may get higher or pointier, and our hair may go from brown to blonde to even ‘bronde’, but one thing we can rely on is a basic makeup routine.

Makeup artist Christine Cho tells us which features you should be drawing focus to (and which ones you may want to hide) in your 40s, what your can’t-live-without product should be—and of course, a simple, basic makeup routine to get you through the day-to-day.

In your 40s:

Ways to cover up: Cho says that in your 40s, you will have to deal with gravity and sagging skin. She suggests, “Apply makeup in an upward motion, including the cheek area when applying blush, contouring, bronzer, etc. to give the face the appearance of a lift.”

Makeup routine: For the regular skincare routine, “cleanse, tone and moisturize—including a cell plumping night cream.” Follow this with makeup, “a hydrating and illuminating foundation, blush (cream blush/tint for extra-dry skin types), and finish with eyeliner, mascara and a lip tint.
