Lifelong learning is a pretty fashionable trend nowadays. Who thought it is true for makeup as well? Many change come with age both in life and appearance. Women spend half of their life perfecting their makeup and then boom, they become older and their habits need some change too. Let’s check some tips on that.
Apply moisturizer before foundation. If you put on foundation without moisturizer, your skin will absorb the moisture from the foundation which might magnify wrinkles and dry patches.
Get A Good Concealer
Cover problem spots with concealer, not foundation. If you try to camouflage everything with foundation, it accentuates wrinkles and doesn’t look natural. With foundation, less is always more.
If you always go with neutral tan and brown tones for your makeup, you can easily end up looking even older than your actual age. Adding little colour can light up your face, making it look healthier and more youthful.
Less Is More
Choose a colour that’s slightly warmer than your skin tone to counteract ruddiness and brighten dull, lifeless skin. Just be sure not to overdo it so your skin can still breathe and look fresh and healthy.
Shape Your Eyebrows
It’s normal if you’ve noticed your brows thinning out over the years, but sometimes all it takes is a little shaping and arching to make them look young and refreshed. Using a brow brush, lift your hairs up and outward, fill in any sparse hairs with light, feathery strokes, and set with a brow gel to keep it all in place.
Use A Sponge
You may be tempted to cover up every imperfection with foundation. Don’t. Pick up the foundation you need with the tip and apply it in dabbing motions on your face. You may need to blend it with your fingers, but the point is that it won’t look cakey or opaque.
Curl Your Eyelashes
As we age, our lashes tend to droop, so curling your lashes will help open up your eyes, making them look bigger and brighter. Opt for a curler with strong springs for a lot of lifting power.
For eyeshadow, choose a colour that differs from your eye colour. This makeup trick will bring out the colour of your eyes. For blue eyes, wear a shade that has brown, copper, bronze, plum or terracotta tones. Enhance brown eyes with blues, purples and greens.
