"As we age the needs and characteristics of our skin change and we start to experience dryness, loss of elasticity, sagging skin, crepey eyelids, crows feet and thinning lashes," says celebrity makeup artist, Gita Bass. "Makeup is a wonderful tool to hide these aging signs, as long as we adapt our formulas and techniques to hide and not accentuate the negative features."
