The complexion of this 47-year-old bears testament to her beauty hack.
This content creator, who has 1.2 million followers on TikTok, should know what she is talking about with decades of experience in the beauty industry.
She said some are using the wrong concealer, which is making their skin look older.
Erica Taylor (@ericataylor2347) offers hope, however, with her “hand test,” which she says can help stop the aging look.
“Anti-aging makeup tips,” she said in her post.
It all came down to the quality of the concealer and you could save yourself a bunch of money and wrinkles by using her trick.
“When choosing a concealer, test it on the back of your hand,” she urged beauty fans.
“If it looks immediately dry on your hand, it will immediately dry on your face.”

She preferred a product from Glossier, $22, and it worked for her.
“This is Glossier, a stretch balm concealer. Opt for a balmy, creamy concealer that does not get crusty on your hand,” she said.
To demonstrate her point, she put two different products on her hand. One of them was immediately dry.
“Okay, so that will be a no for me,” she said.
But it was a different story for the Glossier product.
“This one is still hydrated and has a sheen. That’s a yes for mature skin.
“Glossier,” she said as she put some on her face. “See how it glides on?”
Glossier promises it can find the right skin tone for each customer in just two minutes.
One commenter had already discovered it and could vouch for its effectiveness.
“I’ve been using this hack for months now, thank you so much,” said this person.
Another knew what she wanted for Christmas: “A great idea for my stocking.”
