Mistake: Skipping Foundation

You may think that the older you get the more makeup you need to “youthify” your face, but the opposite is true. Pack on the makeup and you run the risk of looking older than your years. But one makeup item you should never skip in the name of lightening up your routine: foundation. The right one may be your best friend. “No foundation is better than bad foundation, but good foundation is best,” says Maybelline New York makeup artist Melissa Silver. Shown without foundation, the model’s skin tone is dull in places, shiny in others, and noticeably ruddy. But the sheer, translucent finish (note: not a mask of makeup) that a good foundation provides not only corrects those issues but livens the skin. Want proof? See the next slide.
