Make-up for Mature Skin

This week's podcast guest is Grace Fodor, Founder of pro-age make-up brand, Studio10.

We talk about appearance, "tweakments" and ageism in the media as well as how she came to start her own make-up brand. I asked Grace to give us a quick run down of her morning make-up routine.

Women often tell me that they find makeup time consuming, often confusing or not sure how to upgrade their routine for mature skin.   Now you can simplify your makeup with just four quick and easy steps that seamlessly slots into any morning routine. These pro-tricks enhance, not hide, your true beauty and will leave you feeling your most beautiful and confident at any age. Beauty has no age limit! 

1.  PRIME: Prep skin by smoothing out uneven skin texture, and adding lit from within radiance, and creating the perfect base for makeup. 

2.  PERFECT: It’s a cover-up job to correct and conceal redness, blemishes, pigmentation and skin imperfections for flawless, perfected skin. 

3.  SHAPE: Spanx for the face by adding shape and definition to enhance features and create a natural looking lift. 

4.  SHADE: For an instant complexion-pick-up with a flush of healthy colour and glow, adding back the colour you lose as you age.   


As we age our skin tends to become drier, lacklustre and more textured. To combat this, it’s important to always prime your skin, creating an even base for your makeup.  

A good primer will not only smooth the complexion but will add radiance that has been lost over time. We recommend looking for one with gold rather than silvery tones, as this will look more natural on the skin!   

Our Youth Lift Glow-plexion  preps your skin by smoothing out any uneven texture and adds a lit-from-within radiance, making it the perfect base for makeup. 


It’s a cover-up job to correct and conceal redness, blemishes, pigmentation and skin imperfections for flawless, perfected skin. 

Over the years our skin goes through a lot, creating blemishes and pigmentation. As a result, we have more to cover up to achieve flawless skin. Despite BB creams and mineral foundations being great, they often don’t provide the coverage required for more mature skin.  

That’s why for the ‘perfect’ step we recommend a medium to full coverage foundation, with hydrating properties to nourish the skin throughout the day. 

I love to use our Age Repair Perfect Canvas Foundation. It corrects and conceals any redness, blemishes, pigmentation and skin imperfections to create flawless, perfected skin. 


Think of it as Spanx for the face. Adding shape and definition to enhance features and create a natural looking lift.  

As we age our brows tend to become sparse and our skin loses collagen and elasticity, meaning lips lose their shape and become thinner. To add lost definition, I recommend our Brow Perfecting Liner, using short hair-like strokes in an upward motion, to fill in the brows and frame your face. 

Then in order to create balance, you should also line the lips. Try our Age Reverse Perfecting Lip Liner, using the rose shade along the lip line, then the cream shade to highlight and line the Cupid’s bow to accentuate shape further.   

 4. SHADE 

For an instant complexion pick-me-up add a flush of healthy colour and glow. This step is about adding back the colour that we lose as we age. 

This is why we recommend using a peach toned blush. Our Plumping Blush Glow-plexion is a peach toned blush with orange pigments that will add warmth to your skin, while the pink tones will brighten your complexion and add a healthy flush of colour.
