5. Makeup that doesn’t melt
We know better than putting on makeup at the beach, but what if the thermometer reads 92, the humidity is 90%, and you have a party or a job interview? Social media advisers suggest going the totally oil-free, matte, and liquid route. It works at 20, 30, even for some at 40 – but at 50, our dry, textured skin needs a different blending plane. Keep the part pink and cool but skip the fat. Stick to your favorite face makeup—serum, liquid, or CC cream—but add a final step of glow-boosting setting spray like the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Radiant Makeup Setting with Peptides ($14, target.com). Avoid smoky shadows and choose a waterproof mascara like L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara in Waterproof Black ($15, walgreens.com) and a chubby, velvety pencil like the Laura Geller Kajal Longwear Eyeliner in Dark Brown Kohl ($22, laurageller.com) for flawless definition. And finally, go for a creamy, hydrating lipstick (and that’s where you can go matte) like the Milani Color Fetish Matte — The Nudes collection in Secret or Tease ($8, target.com) for a flawless smile.
