Moore looked too old to be Bond in the 80's

And as stated, make-up hides a multitude of things. Didn't Brosnan have some facial scar during the making of TND? I don't believe we ever saw that.

With all due respect to both yourself and Mr Moore, I don't believe there was ever an intentional subtle shift to playing Bond "old(er)".
Moore was 56 during the filming of AVTAK and that's that. He (Bond) was still jumping off bridges, bedding girls half his age, performing other feats of agility and the world continued to revolve at a reassuring pace.
To my mind, there was no ageing from LALD to AVTAK that we could hang even a hat the size of the one whose owner was small headed, of limited means and lost a fight with a chicken.

Only kidding, Moore always looked the youngest for his age.

And anyway, I think Moore looks better in AVTAK than Connery did in DAF (although he strangely seemed to be in better shape in NSNA - no to mention he a better hair piece!). In addition, if AVTAK had been a better Bond film, I believe we all would have been more forgiving of his age.
