Makeup is something that emphasizes female beauty and helps to hide small flaws. In our 20s, we can afford to wear bright colors, light BB creams and look fantastic.

Between 30 and 40 years old


Powder/ Foundation

Between the age of 30 and 40, your skin does not need to hide any signs of age. The first fine lines have not yet appeared, or if there are, they can be hidden with the help of appropriate makeup.

If you want to mattify the T-zone, apply a very small amount of powder to these areas. If you already have fine lines on your face, piling on makeup will only make them more visible.
