article_age-appropriate-makeupLooking good should not end with the clothes you wear. When getting ready, you should also make it your priority to focus on your face. This, after all, is the primary thing people you meet will be looking at. But while the makeup styles you see in magazines may seem tempting to test out, not all of them are age-appropriate. Some, indeed, are best left to the younger set.

Want to know which looks will best fit the age you're in? Browse through the gallery for tips from makeup artist Jigs Mayuga. Plus, we suggest products to add to your arsenal. Start beautifiying, FNites!

    Ms, Marie Calica, thank you for your tips on age-appropriate makeup an advice on aging gracefully. I am actually pleasantly surprised to see Anew. I was always curious about it but was scared to try it. Thank you.

    Indeed, the beauty shouldn’t be neglected at any part of your age. Whether it’s your 20’s or 50’s a perfect looking face is always welcomed. Like you said face is as important as your clothes.
