These fast and simple beauty tips will instantly improve your appearance and correct some of today’s most common beauty problems for women over 40.

To reduce the redness of a blemish: Soak a cotton ball with Visine. Place the cotton ball on the blemish and hold it there for one minute - this will reduce the redness. 

For longer eyelashes: Use a small makeup brush to dust your lashes with face powder before applying mascara and between coats.

To minimize dark under-eye circles: Before applying your foundation use an orange tone concealer mixed with your foundation to cover under-eye circles. Apply foundation and set with face powder. Avoid using blue or purple eye shadows.

To instantly lighten eyebrows: Rub a small dot of the foundation through your eyebrow and gently brush eyebrows with an old toothbrush.

To disappear wrinkles: After applying your foundation use a thin small makeup brush to apply highlighter directly in the crease of the wrinkle, blend and set with face powder.

To whiten and brighten your teeth: Use lip colors with blue undertones such as cool red, berries, burgundies, and wines.

To refresh oily hair: Sprinkle baby powder onto your hairbrush before brushing your hair.

To prevent bed hair: Before going to bed comb a drop of leave-in conditioner through your hair.

To remove yellow discoloration on nails: Soak nails in any over-the-counter denture cleanser for 5 to 10 minutes.
