Nothing lifts your confidence more than the appearance of even and wrinkle-free skin. As a woman ages, it becomes more difficult to retain a youthful, fresh and dewy skin tone. Surgery and chemical peels are pricey solutions, but you can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles using a few youth-boosting and creamy beauty products. A great skin care regimen is important, but expertly applied makeup takes your skin from splotchy and wrinkled to smoother and plumped-up in an instant.

Wash and exfoliate skin with gentle cleansers formulated for your skin type. The exfoliation process removes dead skin and allows the makeup to glide on skin smoothly.

Hydrate skin with a quarter-size amount of moisturizer to plump up your wrinkled skin. Let the moisturizer dissolve into skin for five to 10 minutes, before applying other makeup products.

Fill in pores and fine lines with a primer. Use your fingertips to smooth the gel-like product into fine lines on your face.

Even out your complexion with a creamy, liquid foundation. Pour or squirt a dab of foundation on the back of your hand. Dip a foundation brush into the product. Apply the foundation over your facial wrinkles using a back and forth motion. Use a sponge to complete the coverage on the other areas of your face.

Exfoliate lips with a damp washcloth. Apply a lip balm to smooth lips and fill in lines. Swipe on a creamy pink- or red-toned lipstick, instead of a neutral brown, taupe or beige one, to divert attention away from frown lines around lips.
