Makeup is a double-edged sword which can make or break you,if you still use darker lip lines or dated makeup techniques, this can really add years to your face.On the other hand, correctly used makeup can make you look younger and fresher like you see top models on tele all the time, take a look at some mistakes in makeup you might be committing which might make you look old.
A white looking foundation or too pale a foundation is sure you to make you ten years older, so choose your shade carefully.
Too much foundation will get into your lines and then make your wrinkles more pronounced, choose the right finish of foudnation and wear it sparingly and blend evenly to hide skin problems.
If you dont wear foundation, all your skin woes will come to the fore, so try and give some kind of coverage to make your skin look younger.
Very thin and or uneven brows will never frame the face, rule number one to look younger is to frame the face with brows, if you have lighter brows then fill them in with pencil or powder and wax.
Too much sparkle:
Too much shimmer and sparkle will only accentuate your problem areas, refrain from sparkle on the cheeks or around the eyes, just a bit to add light is a good idea.
No matter what, always wear sun protection, sun can make your skin look so much older,and accelerate the aging process.
Nourished skin is sure to look younger, if you have dry skin, wrinkles, use a nourisher to target problem areas and also keep skin looking supple.
The biggest mistake we make is to wear darker not so fresh looking lip color, this adds years to the face guaranteed,use a fresh rose shade and blend evenly, this will keep your look fresh.
Super matte lipstick will make your mouth look small and also highlight lip lines,supple lips is the key to looking younger.
Dark lip liner:
This is criminal now 😛 must have been in fashion once upon a time but if you still wear a dark liner then make sure to blend it in and soften the look.
Too much concealer:
Concealer caked up around the eyes will fill into wrinkles and accentuate them, keep a softer concealed look and don’t layer it with powder too much.
Mascara on lower lashes:
This is not a problem but it will highlight your crow’s feet, so avoid if you have problem areas around the eyes.
Like uneven brows, thin eyebrows that have been plucked too much will make you look older remember.
Wrong blush shades:
Go for a natural pinched blush shade, wrong blush shade which is too cool or too warm for your skin
Blush on the apple of the cheeks:
Like a wrong blush shade, too much blush on the apple of the cheeks does not make you look fresher or younger, follow the sides of the face to the temple a bit when you apply blush, just like you would blush naturally.
Liner on lower lash line:
Liner on the lower lid for sure highlights dark circles, and if it smudges, need I say more, apply liner on the top and balance it out if you wish on the lower lid, never on the lower lid alone I mean.
Metallic or frosty shades used on the eyes in the wrong way never work for ageing skin, use some softer tones to look younger.
Too much powder:
When you layer on too much powder which is not so translucent, it wil surely highlight the fine lines.Stick to translucent powder.
Dry and coarse hair will add many years to the face since dry hair is a sign of ageing.
Dry lips are also a sign of ageing, hence well moisturized lips are the key to looking younger.
Avoid bleeding lipstick by using a nude lip liner underneath your lip color,this always works, fill up your lips with a liner entirely.
Not changing your hairstyle:
Sticking to an outdated hairstyle (flicks, remember?) will not really help you look very today, meet your stylist to see what works best for you.
Yellow teeth are also a sign of ageing hence avoid teeth staining by limiting coffee tea and quit smoking.
Going too natural without any makeup might not always make you look fresh, a little concealer foundation always help, use a lip tint or cheek tint if you like to go for the natural look.
