With a few smart makeup techniques, you can turn back the clock.

Tonya Crooks, a celebrity makeup artist and eyebrow expert, who has made the likes of Eva Mendes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Fergie and Megan Fox even more beautiful than they naturally are, shares her top five antiaging makeup tips.


1. Start with well-hydrated skin.


Makeup will go on smoother and last longer if your skin is supple and moisturized. I recommend to all my clients that they use a daily moisturizer and one at night as well. For a quick fix, applying a makeup primer under your foundation will add instant luster to your skin.


2. Don't over-tweeze.

Look at a girl of 14 or 15 who hasn't started tweezing her eyebrows and you'll see brows that are healthy and full with no exaggerated arches or bald spots. The takeaway: Less is more when it comes to achieving youthful-looking brows. Pluck stray hairs below your brow line, but don't thin out the brows themselves. If you're thinking about reshaping your brows, see a pro.


3. Choose creamy cheek colors.

Skip the powders and opt instead for blush and bronzer in a cream, liquid or mousse formula. Powders tend to sit on top of the skin, making your complexion look parched, while creamy textures give you a lit-from-within glow.


4. Keep eye makeup light and clean.

Dark and heavy shadows can make your eyes look sunken while lighter shades help them "pop." You can still do a dramatic look; just focus the liner and deeper shades on the outer corners of your eyes.


5. Opt for glossy lipstick over matte.

As we get older, our lips tend to shrink a bit. A dark matte lip color and liner will make them look even smaller. Instead, create the illusion of a plumper pout with a gloss in a light hue. And with paler colors you can go outside the borders of your lip a little. I call it cheating the edge.
