How To Lessen the Appearance of Wrinkles with Makeup

A common question I get is how to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.  The quickie makeup fix uses concealer and highlighter.  The resulting look softens the lines, especially diminishing their appearance in photos due to the light reflecting pigments found in highlighter.

1.  Even your skin tone as you normally would.  Always start with a moisturizer.

2.  Dab a concealer that is not drying along the lines you are targeting.  Dry concealer will settle in the lines making them more obvious so choose wisely.

3.  Using a highlighter pencil draw on top of the lines, dab with your finger to soften the edges.  Use your pinky finger to apply on top of the lines if your highlighter is not in the pencil form.

Simple, quick and easy!


  1. What is a highlighter pencil ? What is a good choice on these 2 items for dry skin?

  2. For Concealer boing by benefit cosmetics and a highlighter pencil is a brightening formula in stick form. It is a similar consistency to eyeliner but not as dry. You can get one for as low as a few dollars by elf cosmetics or other mass retail brands. Anastasia brand makes a dual sided highlighter pencil that is my favorite. It has a pink and beige tone color.
