Years ago, when I wrote my beauty book, I interviewed Dr. Dennis Gross, who had some interesting insight into aging. One of the things I remember from our interview is that he said that dullness, not wrinkles or laxity, is one of the main things that makes our skin look older.
Fortunately, there have never been more products designed to help you recapture that glow, and today, I’m sharing a super-simple and streamlined makeup routine from Merit Beauty that starts with their brand new Great Skin Instant Glow Serum.

Here, my step by step anti-aging makeup routine using Great Skin.
Apply Great Skin
I apply it to clean skin, but for a glass skin effect, try it over your moisturizer. Use 1 pump for oily skin, 2 for combination, 3 for dry skin. It absorbs instantly and leaves your skin fresh and glowy, but not at all greasy. It also creates the ideal base for makeup.
Create a Great Base
Next, I use the Minimalist, a foundation/concealer stick in the shade Khaki, on areas where I need coverage. Discoloration is one of the things that detracts from our glow and causes us to look older. I use the Brush No. 1 to blend. Next, I use the Bronzing Balm in Seine on my cheekbones, across my forehead, and on my chin. Then, I use the Highlighting Balm in Cava around my eyes, on the bridge of my nose, and on my temples. Then, I add color to my cheekbones with the Flush Balm. Today, I used Raspberry Beret.
Complete the Look
I finish my face with a swipe of Brown 1980 in Brown, Clean Lash Lengthening Mascara, and Signature Lipstick in the most perfect fall shade, Tiger.
It takes more time to talk about this quick and flowy anti-aging makeup routine than it does to do it. Less than five minutes and I’m out the door! I love the fresh, subtle, and elegant look these products give me. Check out this before and after!
