I stand firmly in the camp that age is truly nothing but a number. One look at iconic beauties like Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Elizabeth Hurley, Iman, Sharon Stone, and Christie Brinkley, and I’m sure you’d agree. There is happiness and sunshine that radiates from their faces, a nod to good skincare, wellness, treatments, and, of course, makeup techniques. It goes without saying that our skin changes as we age—bringing about issues that never used to be there. So, it’s only natural we adapt, switching up the way we do our makeup and the formulas we use to better serve us throughout the years.
