A creamy lipstick
Give matte shades a miss. “They highlight fine lines and dryness,” says Max Factor make-up artist Liz Kelsh. It’s best to use a soft cream or satin-finish lipstick, such as Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour ($50; 02- 9900 2944) or Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick ($20.95; 1800 181 040). Warmer hues suit mature skin, adds Sydney-based make-up artist Nicola Burford, so stick to soft pinks and browns. Avoid frosted, glossy and dark lip colours—these are the anti-anti-agers! To stop colour from feathering, line lips with a natural-looking liner, then smudge with your fingertips to blur any hard edges.
