Thick foundation, heavy concealer on dark circles, face powder on top of lines, major lipsticks and mascara on the lower lashes are among serious makeup mistakes that may make you look 10-year-older than your age. Let's find out reasons why we must minimize the wrong beauty steps and some ways to enhance them.
You may look older than your age wearing heavy makeup, so it is better to apply a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer such as Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 and then press a damp makeup sponge into areas where you have wrinkles to soak up any excess.
Makeup artist Sandy Linter advises that the more skin you can see, the better
Too light base
If the foundation is paler than your natural skin tone, it will exaggerate fine lines. You need a little bit warmer when getting older in spite of your ivory skin. Let's switch a color that is one or two shades darker and has luminescent particles like Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk.
A light-reflective formula helps make the skin look like it's glowing
Heavy concealer on dark circles
When you age, the skin under your eyes looks thinner so make sure that keep it light, put it only on dark areas, not under the entire eye, and apply it with a brush, which helps distribute the color more evenly.
Lancôme Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer is a preferred product
Face powder on top of lines
Powder is only good for reducing shine on the nose and the chin but exaggerates wrinkles on other parts of the face and makes skin look too dry. The fact is not actually recognized by many people.
Don’t use much powder on your face during your makeup
Blush on the apples of the cheeks
Blushing on the apples of the cheeks may draw attention to sagging skin. Therefore, you can apply color on the highest point of your cheekbones, not too close to the nose, and lift it upward with a brush to cover the whole cheekbone.
A neutral rose color flatters all skin tones and really brightens things up
It is too heavy for thinning lips to apply bright colors, dark shades and anything metallic or iridescent. Instead, you can choose a neutral rose shade.
Switching from a lipstick to a sheer gloss will give you more fullness
Eyeliner on the lower lashes
Eyeliner on the lower lashes makes your eyes look smaller and draw attention to dark circles. Apply the line thicker toward the outer corners, where eyes have a tendency to droop as we age.
You can use Elizabeth Arden Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil
Mascara on the lower lashes
Mascara on the lower lashes generally looks bad and highlights crow’s-feet as well as dark circles. It's best to avoid superthick formulas that don't separate easily and coat your top lashes with the blackest black mascara that makes the whites of your eyes look clearer and whiter.
Curling your lashes is the easiest thing you can do to make your eyes look bigger and therefore younger
