Our families, our lives. -Simply irresistible. -What I'm first gonna do is actually just watch your jaw line to make sure that we have the right shade. -In the hands of makeup artist, Darbey Bacchus Budd, makeup wipes away the years. The creator of Bacchus cosmetics, Darbey says the right makeup applied the right way can take five to ten years off your face. -Is the eyelid droopy? You know, is the brow shaped? You know, is the skin texture-- is it-- is there a lot of elasticity, or is it really dry? I mean, is it really-- that's gonna determine the type of foundation I do. That's gonna give the more youthful appearance. -Tip number one, pick the right foundation. -It should do one thing that just-- is normalize. Normalize spots, normalize red blotchiness. -Number two, don't forget your eyebrows. -Oftentimes, it just needs to be reshaped and filled in a little bit. -Number three, make the most of those eyes. -Shadows should highlight and contour. -Lips are next. -Filling in with a pencil is the most important, I think. It's gonna prevent it from feathering out, making it look all cracked and bleedy. -And the right blush on the apple of your cheek will give you a youthful flush of color. But the most important tip of all is to blend, blend, blend that makeup. -To get it on there, you think they're done. So, when you get it on there, you gotta blend it. -Darbey says when you hit 30, it's time to start rethinking your makeup to minimize lines and other signs of aging. -When I was younger, people always said I looked older.
