The Make Up That Ages You
Don't let your makeup make you look older!
When fine lines settle in and sun spots multiply, many women use heavy foundation. Unfortunately, instead of hiding imperfections, it brings attention to them. Excess product settles into creases, which exaggerates wrinkles, and thick layers piled on top of each other create a dated complexion. Instead, use a tinted moisturizer that offers subtle coverage and a hydrating boost for your skin.
Moreover, our skin changes as we get older, so most women can't wear the same colour foundation in their 30s as they did in their 20s. While powder and foundation that is too dark can make you look cheap and overdone, wearing a foundation that is too light makes you look pasty and bland.
Wearing heavy make up on both eyes and lips makes a woman look like she's trying to hard to look young. Eye shadow colours that turn into frosty, metallic, bright, or shimmery might be trendy, but they look too stark against aging skin. Opt for neutral tones instead.
It’s an age-old fact - a dark colour on your lips, makes them look smaller. Because lips naturally lose fullness over time, the last thing we want to do is shrink them. With lipstick, it’s best to stick to hues that are only a little darker than the lips’ natural colour. Any make up course can teach you that.
Moreover, choose one of your features to play up. If you're doing a smoky eye, use just a shimmery lip gloss with a hint of colour. If you want to focus on the lips, go easy on the eyes with just some mascara and a little shadow.
