Everyone’s makeup routine is different, but makeup artists say that there’s one mistake that women over 40 keep making when it comes to their daily glam. “Mature skin needs to be smoothed in order to show radiance,” makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen, who has worked with Hollywood beauty legends like Cindy Crawford and Michelle Pfeiffer,  tells The Zoe Report

Not sure how to give your skin the smoothness and radiance it deserves? Reiss-Andersen recommends prepping your skin with a plumping serum before applying your makeup. “I like to use a good serum to fill in fine lines, followed by a moisturizer,” she continues.

Reiss-Andersen’s top pick for the best plumping serum goes to Marmur Metamorphosis’ MMRevive Serum, which was developed by renowned NYC dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD. In fact, she says you can’t go wrong with any of the brand’s serums! “They’re silicone free and never feel or act sticky, perfect for pre-makeup application,” Reiss-Andersen adds.
