THE rich and famous aren’t immune to getting older. But like a fine wine, some stars only get better (and better-looking) with time. They do this with the help of beauty professionals (and some doctors), but there are tricks you can do at home that won’t cost an arm and a leg, but are guaranteed to make you look and feel 10 years younger!
- Blusher will become your best friend as you age. A radiant finish will brighten any skin tone and give cheekbones a lift.
What A Cheek Blush Cheek Stamp: R170, Sorbet
- Brows shape your face no matter your age. Lightly defining brows can add instant lift.
- Find a lip liner that matches your natural lip tone. Gently over draw the bottom lip line and cupid’s bow for a fuller pout.
Quickliner For Lips: R320, Clinique
- Consistent use of a good acid peel will have increasing benefits: erasing fine lines and pigmentation, building collagen and help to strengthen skin.
Rapid Reveal Peel: R1 499, Dermalogica
- Avoid using a jet black or liquid liner as they can appear harsh and can make eyes look smaller. Instead, try a brown pencil liner for a less severe effect.
Long Lasting Eye Pencil: R29.95, Essence
- Start with a volumising mascara on both top and bottom lashes. Follow with a lengthening mascara on the outer corners to create a flirtatious curl.
Double Extension Mascara: R229.95, L’Oreal Paris
- Embrace silicone – in skincare products that is. Primers and serums with silicone temporarily fill in fine lines
Smooth Miracle Primer: R239.95, Max Factor
- Things that make hair look older are frizz, breakage, dryness, lack of shine and loss of elasticity. Deep conditioning once a week can help most of these conditions.

- A clean nude nail polish gives a more youthful appearance and is appropriate for any age.
- Select golden and warm tones at your next hair colouring appointment. Ash tones tend to wash you out as you age.
