Step 1: Moisturize
“Skin that is well-moisturized and hydrated creates the perfect foundation for any look,” says makeup artist Bruce Grayson, who has worked his magic on such stars as Brooke Shields and Katie Holmes. “The smoother the skin, the easier it is to apply foundation and the less product you need to use. This allows your radiant, natural complexion to play a major role in the makeup.”
Grayson’s new favorite anti-aging moisturizer is Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Wrinkle Revolution Complex ($29.99). Its hydrating ingredients smooth the skin, and its light-reflecting particles practically erase wrinkles.
