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.

Gorgeous: Meryl Streep has perfect brows and still looks stunning, despite being 63 Gorgeous: Actress Meryl Streep has perfect brows and still looks stunning, despite being 63

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.

How she gets it right: Meryl, 63, has wonderfully expressive brows. They’re long, thick and match her fair hair. The high arch lifts her face and eyes and they are rough and ready enough to look natural but well groomed.

NOMINATIONS, HOST AND JURY REVEALED FOR THE 15th ANNUAL MOËT BRITISH INDEPENDENT FILM AWARDS 

London, Monday 5 November The nominations for the 15th annual Moët British Independent Film Awards were announced today, at St Martins Lane, London by actor and BIFA Patron, Adrian Lester.

Joint Directors, The Moët British Independent Film Awards’ Johanna von Fischer & Tessa Collinson said: “In this our 15th year, we are delighted to welcome back six-time former host James Nesbitt. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated Pre-Selection Committee who watched over 200 films in order to produce the 2012 Nominations, which once again reflect the diverse range of British film talent, and also welcome this year’s appointed independent Jury who will now spend the next month considering the nominated films.”

Nominations for Best Actress go to Alice Lowe for Sightseers, Andrea Riseborough for Shadow Dancer, Elle Fanning for Ginger & Rosa, Judi Dench for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady. Along with Tim Roth for Broken, leading men hoping to take home the Best Actor award include Riz Ahmed for Ill Manors, Steve Oram for Sightseers, Terence Stamp for Song for Marion and Toby Jones for Berberian Sound Studio.

“At 15 years old, the BIFAs are now firmly established as a key date in the UK film industry calendar and we’re delighted to be supporting this year’s awards. The BIFAs are the UK’s only awards focusing entirely on independent British films, as such they really help to shine a spotlight on the vast range and breadth of excellence in independent UK filmmaking – helping to promote independent British films to new audiences, and setting a focus on the Best of British just as the international awards season begins.”

The Raindance Award nominees for 2012 include: Frank, Strings, Love Tomorrow City Slacker and Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet. This award honours exceptional achievement for filmmakers working against the odds, often with little or no industry support.  Elliot Grove, Founder Raindance Film Festival and Moët British Independent Film Awards added: “The Raindance Award has become the beacon for new talent. These five films show what Raindance is all about: great acting, storytelling and production values, each made with limited resources against impossible odds.”

The winners will be announced at the much anticipated 15th awards ceremony which will be hosted by actor and BIFA Patron, James Nesbitt, who returns for his seventh year on Sunday 9 December at the impressive Old Billingsgate in London.
