Hide Wrinkles
If you aren't careful, your makeup might enhance your wrinkles. "Avoid powders, which can sink into lines and make you look older," says makeup artist Jemma Kidd. Smooth Good Skin Labs Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler ($39.50) over lines to immediately plump them. Let it absorb and then apply a liquid foundation. We like M.A.C. Studio Sculpt Foundation ($28).

Brighten Eyes
"Prevention is key when it comes to eyes," notes Kidd. Her Firming I-Crème Duo shadows in Silk ($40) are filled with antiaging ingredients like Dermaxyl. And don't forget to treat as you conceal. Chanel Lift Lumière Concealer ($45) reduces the appearance of dark circles with a tetrapepide.

Maximize Moisture
"Powder can look cakey on dry skin," says Johnson. Instead, use layers of moisture like Stila Hydrating Primer ($34) and Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Foundation ($118), which contains hyaluronic acid.
