Makeup Tips to Look Younger #1 : Chuck that Shimmery Shadow!
Eyes tell it all! Even your age. Remember eyes are the windows to our souls and also to let our age known! If you have still been using those shimmery eye shadows, its time to bid good bye to them. The shiny sparkles highlight the wrinkles around your eyes. On the other hand, matt shadows (silky matt will also do) blend well with aging skin and hide those fine lines well to make you look younger than your age. Try the universal colors like peach or a light tone of champagne to get a younger looking eyes. Apply these eye shadows from lashes to brows. However, if there is puffiness on your eyelids, use medium shades on the whole of the lid which will give an impression of natural crease. Taupe eye shadow will do good to make your eyes look younger in such case.
Makeup Tips to Look Younger #2 : Say Yes to Lip Gloss!
One of the very obvious effect of aging are drier and thinner lips to to lost plumpness. Lip glosses help make your lips look fuller. If you are habitual of wearing dark lip liner and matte lipstick, you might end up drawing attention towards the fine lines around your mouth. So when you wear a lip color, top it with a lip gloss to give your lips fuller and youthful shine.
Makeup Tips to Look Younger #3 : Go Easy with Foundation and Concealer!
You might find foundations and concealers to be the magic solutions for those uneven skin tones and dark patches and spots. However, a thick layer of these can make your wrinkles look more deeper adding years to your age. When you use foundation, first apply a moisturizer that will give a smooth appearance to these cosmetics. Avoid using your fingers to apply it. Instead use a sponge or a brush. These makeup tools will ensure that you do not get a thick coat of foundation. You can then dot concealer on the dark spots or patches that require extra coverage like under eyes and around nose.
Makeup Tips to Look Younger # 4 : Mix and Match Dark Colors and Neutrals!
Colors look good but colors all over your face might make you look older than you expect them to do! If you love those bright lipsticks and blushes, match them with neutral eye shadows. For example, if you wear rosy blush on your cheeks, go for nuetral eye make up or if you want a loud eye makeup, go neutral with lips and cheek makeup. However, pale tones of lipsticks can give you older look. So, you can use pink neutrals or berries in place of nude lip shades.
Makeup Tips to Look Younger # 5 : Say No to Liquid Eye Liners!
Eye pencils are what you need for your aging eyes because liquid liners make your eyes look hard. You can use waterproof liner pencil. Work your eye pencil around the top of the lash line between all the lashes. When you open your eyes, you should not be able to see a line. If you want to further soften the line, smudge it with an angled makeup brush after dipping it in dark shadow. Your fingers can also do if you don’t have an angled makeup brush but be extra careful when using your fingers to smudge the liner. You can also apply a coat of mascara. If you have small eyes, don’t line the inside of your eyes as it will make them appear smaller. Always fill in your eye brows because with age they lose density and may hinder your attempt to look younger with the right makeup techniques.
Makeup Application Tips- Super Beauty Tips on How to Look Younger!
Here are some super beauty tips to look younger- your guide for makeup application for aging face!
Start makeup application with Primer. A high-quality skin primer fills in your fine lines and smaller wrinkles making them less visible. Applying moisturizer even before primer can also help you look younger.
Don’t apply thick foundation. Thick coat of foundation turn into deep cracks making your fine lines more visible. Apply moisturizer, then primer, and then a light liquid foundation tapping it in softly with a sponge. Don’t rub it.
Enhance the shape of your eyes. If your eyelids tend to droop, you should apply makeup in such a way that draws attention away from the lids and toward your eyes. Apply eye-liner in a thin streak along the line where the lashes begin, top and bottom.
Apply soft shades of eye shadow. Always use soft shades of eye shadow and give a light touch when applying shadow.
Fill in your eyebrows. Brows give a frame to your face. However they grow thinner with age. So, use eyebrow pencil that complements your eyebrow hair color.
Avoid dark lipstick shades. Bleeding lip color will draw attention to wrinkles around your mouth as the cream (of lipstick) tends to stray into the fine lines around your lips. Apply moisturizer, then coat your lips with foundation and then wear lipstick. This will also help plump up your lips making you look younger.
Swap your powder cosmetics with creamier ones. Powders settle into fine lines and wrinkles whereas creamy cosmetic formulas plump up the skin making you look younger than your age.
