There is nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to getting older. In fact, many women say they never felt more beautiful than when they reached retirement age. However, despite our wisdom giving us an extra spark and charm, a little anti-aging tips never hurt anyone.
Besides a proper skincare routine, makeup can also be your best friend when it comes to looking your best. If you’re looking for some makeup tips to instantly look younger, then look no further than these.
Add Light Under The Eyes
Adding a light foundation under your eyes is a great way to cleverly hide dark circles and shadows. Known as the “triangle of light,” this lightened area under your eyes will give the impression that you’re not only younger but that you slept much longer than you did too!
Avoid using overly heavy foundation as this can cake under your eyes and accentuate your wrinkles rather than conceal them. Lastly, make sure that you seal your under-eye foundation with a light or translucent powder to ensure it doesn’t budge.
The older that you get, the more important it is to properly prime and moisturize your skin. If your skin doesn’t have a smooth surface before placing your foundation, then it won’t look ideal. Moisturizing will smooth out your fine lines and wrinkles so that you achieve the best possible application with your foundation. You may even want to consider adding a little anti-aging oil to your foundation for an extra Dewy finish.
Choose The Right Foundation
The right foundation is everything when it comes to how well your overall makeup looks will turn out. You want to choose something that’s thick enough that it will offer the proper coverage for your dark spots and blemishes, yet creamy enough that it doesn’t emphasize your wrinkles and cake up in places where it shouldn’t.
When we think of youth, we often think of a bright complexion and bright rosy cheeks. Applying A brightly colored pink blush to the apples of your cheeks can shave years off of your age. Instead of going for a dark blush, go for something youthful and bright. In addition to applying a little blush on your cheeks, you should also apply a little on the tip of your nose. This pop of color will make you look youthful and spunky.
Lipstick has the power of totally transforming our face, and making our lips look plumper. Rather than opting for dark colors like Bordeaux or deep red, go for something like light pink or coral. The darker of a color you choose, the thinner your lips can look which can end up making you look older instead of younger.
Consider Permanent Makeup
Not all of us have time to put on a full face of makeup every day. For this reason, many people find permanent makeup to be a great solution. From tinted lips to microbladed eyebrows, there are all sorts of different ways to roll out of bed with a full face of makeup without having to put in the work.
