I'd go to the library and get a book about theatrical makeup - there are typically topics in those books about old age makeup as well as youth makeup. The sections that cover how contouring works will also give you an invaluable foundation for doing your makeup to look like any character.

There might be something on-line, too - you could Google it but sometimes for things like this books are still the most complete resource. I find a lot of YouTube makeup tutorials for things like this cover techniques that won't work for everyone (they're 'do your eye makeup just like this' kind of things where that won't work for every eye shape), whereas the books I've read on theatrical makeup teach you how to look at a face in a different way and be able to do whatever you want with it.
