40 years is an age that is both wonderful and dangerous at the same time. The danger is that today, in the era of the rapid development of beauty technologies, it is easy to lose control in the choice of procedures to prolong youth. Not every one of these stars had the opportunities available to us today - but look how beautifully many of them met their age!
Was in a hurry or, on the contrary, was late, overdid it … If in the past the average woman, basically, only had access to cosmetics, then today in her arsenal - and improved anti-aging products, and a number of procedures. Among them are surgical operations and non-surgical hardware procedures (they can be based on ultrasound, light waves or a laser), and, of course, injections.

"Beauty shots" can also be different. In order to "refresh" the skin, biorevitalization is enough - microinjections with a moisturizing and nourishing composition. Fillers based on hyaluronic acid will help to replenish lost volumes (here it is very important to know when to stop so as not to get a swollen face at the exit), and botulinum therapy - popularly simply "botox" - to prevent or even smooth out mimic wrinkles.

Victoria Beckham and other stars who had a lavish wedding
Although it was in 1999, Vera Wong's dress for Victoria Beckham is still considered one of the most beautiful dresses in the world. Victoria herself believes that time has no power over the dress, and she still keeps it in her wardrobe. She hopes that one day her daughter Harper will want to wear it to her wedding.
For those who are not ready for drastic measures (and even half measures), there is an easier way to restore freshness to the face - anti-age makeup. The disadvantage of this method, perhaps, is only that all the magic disappears after the very first cleansing procedure.

One of the secrets of rejuvenating makeup is getting it right. It is worth taking the time to use a mask, and then apply a moisturizer - on the face, neck and even ears (details are everything!). Then a light primer should be applied. Star makeup artists recommend products with a serum consistency and urge you to pay attention to the composition: it is desirable that it does not contain silicones.

As for the tone, with age it is worth paying attention to light textures. And also - choose products with a radiant effect. So, the composition is less likely to clog into wrinkles, emphasizing them, and the skin will not look overloaded.

A little more from the "good taste rules" - use blush and do not forget about the bronzer, which, along with the shiny textures, is responsible for a rested, "sun-kissed" look. The main thing is to apply it correctly - on the protruding parts of the face, according to the same principle by which we get a natural tan.

Good news: you can and should emphasize your lips! The missing volume will help fill not only fillers, but also the correct lip makeup. Makeup artists advise using at least two products - a lip liner that is as similar as possible to a natural color, and a nude lipstick to match. Circle and "shade" the lips with a pencil, and then apply lipstick - this way you will achieve a lasting effect.

But in eye makeup, you should be extremely careful.No heavy options to accentuate the texture of the eyelid! Choose light consistencies and shadows with reflective particles, and if you want to make smoky eyes, avoid black and dark gray shades: shadows in brown will look much more natural and fresher!
Veronica Lake, Natalia Kustinskaya, Jennifer Aniston
Well, and the last recommendation based on the example of stars: refrain from aggressive eyebrow makeup. They can be given the lacking density or shape, but you should not make the eyebrows graphic, especially if you have a light color type - this will only add age.
