From perfect brows to gorgeously glowing skin: Here’s what Meryl Streep can teach you about mid-life make-up


Even Hollywood’s most beautiful women suffer from sallow skin, crepey eyes and thinning lips over 50.

The right make-up can hide a multitude of sins, but get  it wrong and you can look much older.

Celebrity  make-up artist Lisa Eldridge has worked with Vanessa Redgrave and Sandra Bullock as well as younger stars such as Keira Knightley. Here, she reveals the top products and tricks for older faces — and which stars do it best.

BLITZ YOUR BROWS LIKE MERYL STREEP

Eyebrows lighten and thin with age, so using an eye pencil will make a dramatic difference to an older face, restoring definition and structure. Create small, light, imperfect strokes, tracing where brows have thinned so they look natural and not drawn on.

Avoid anything darker than your hair colour — brows that blend in look more forgiving. If you have grey or greying hair, avoid red or brown pencils which can look fake.
