Everyone is aware of the fact that the magical fountain of youth that will make you look younger is just a myth. That’s why every woman is trying to hide her middle-age symptoms, like lines or wrinkles and there is no such beauty treatment, anti-age product, which can’t give you some results in a really short time.
In this case, make-up is definitely your best friend! We’ve gathered 10 professional makeup tips which will make you look gorgeous and feel more youthful. In the end, age is just a number, it is all about how you feel and wear that.
1. Before Applying Makeup, Moisturize Your Face
If you are applying makeup on dry skin, you tend to get skin cracks which could add to your age. So, don’t forget your face cream or lotion before your foundation or makeup primer. Moisturised face will smoothen your skin surface, help your makeup stay longer, and help your skin look less dull. An important step you should never miss out on!
2. Exfoliate Your Face Once A Week
Exfoliating your face will help you remove the dead skin cells on your face, allowing the new cells to surface, thus you will end up getting your daily glow and instant boost. This procedure will help clean the dirt and debris deep in your pores that your daily cleanser wasn’t able to remove away. Exfoliating can be done once a week but no more than that.
3. Use Concealer For Darker Circles
Once you have chosen the right concealer color, it is time to master the art of applying it correctly, especially when you want to hide those dark circles and lines under your eyes. Properly applied concealer will instantly brighten your face, hide blemishes and freckles. The color of your concealer is recommended to be 2 colors lighter.
4. Use Medium Coverage Foundation
Too much makeup will achieve the opposite result of making you look younger. Medium coverage foundation contains skin contouring blend, vitamin E, and some of them anti-aging caffeine that will make your face lifted, smooth, and fresher. If you are looking to cover up and prevent the sign of wrinkles, dark spots, and fine lines, best go for medium coverage foundation but make sure you prep the skin on your face before applying.
5. Use Blush In Warm Pink Or Bronze Colors For Younger Look
As we are aging the skin loses its luminosity, and glow, therefore adding warm pink or peachy tones on the cheeks can give a more youthful appearance. Some might say, that a cream formula blush creates a smoother finish as it hydrates the skin, and on the other hand powder blush formula will emphasize any fine lines and wrinkles on your skin.
6. Avoid Using Dark Eyeshadows
Lighter eyeshadows are brightening the eyes and distracting the imperfections from the skin, like dark circles. Thus, a reason why you should avoid using dark-toned shadows is simple; they will make you look fatigued and older. Younger people have smooth skin with the contrast between the hair, eyes, and lips color. As we go older all that fades, so try opting for brighter colors or tones like red-violet, and turquoise.
7. Curl Your Eyelashes For Extra Volume
Curling your eyelashes will definitely give you a beautiful, more open eye look. Exposing the eyelashes will distract the attention from the skin near the eyes, and instead, your eyes will become the center and main point of attention. The lashes which are curled and with volume will create a youthful appearance and will make your eyes stand out!
8. Look After Your Eyebrows
As we got older, a part of the natural aging process is the hair on our bodies to go thinner. Thicker eyebrows will for sure give you younger look. Do not use darker-toned eyebrow pencil but opt for the natural hair color. Eyebrows should be well-groomed with a correct shape matching your face. Eyebrows are another beautiful feature on our face to give more dominant character.
9. Use Lip Liner To Enhance Your Lips
The lip liner serves as a base for the lipstick. The intention here is to fill in uneven areas on the outer edges of the lips, before applying your favorite lipstick. The colors should match, or at least be in a similar shade. The lip liner will make your lips look a bit bigger and fuller. You can use your lip liner as lipstick too. The liner will also make sure your lipstick stays longer.
10. Brighten Your Eye Inner Corners With Light Shadow
Another great way to hide the dark circle around the eyes yet look natural is to apply white or any light color on your eye’s inner corner. You can have simple makeup on you, just a little eyeshadow on your tear ducts, and good to go. Also this way, your eye will open up and have that natural glow.
