New Makeup Routine for a 60 year old

Help my makeup no longer lasts and I have combination skin with it being drier around my nose and in between my eyebrows!  I start off looking good but within a hour I’m a mess 😢. I no longer know what to use and in what order as well I have a few age spots 🙄!  Recommendations for products and a makeup routine to get from work to evening!

Re: New Makeup Routine for a 60 year old

Without knowing your current routine, here are some ideas:

Are you using a primer? I’m going to guess no. I would recommend one for eyemakup and one for your face. For eye primer, I like Too Faced Shadow Insurance 24-Hour Eyeshadow Primer 0.2 oz/ 5.7 g

For a face primer, you’ll want one that has hyalronic acid in it. That can help with those dry areas. MILK MAKEUP Hydro Grip Hydrating Makeup Primer with Hyaluronic Acid + Niacinamide 1.52 / 45 mL is a good one, as is Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer 1.35 oz/ 40 mL

 All you do is put on the primers after you finish with your skincare routine (so after moisturizing), then put on your makeup. 
After that, I’d say do setting powder and a setting spray to lock things in. Powders should match your foundation, so I’m not going to go into detail with recommendations here, but I do like Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder Just dust a layer of powder over your face, then I like to follow with a setting spray. My favorite setting spray is:

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Jumbo 8.11 oz / 240 mL 

(You don’t need the jumbo size- it’s the one that popped up for me to add)

You can try doing either the powder or the spray too, if it feels like too much of a production.
