Time marches on relentlessly and it eventually shows on our faces. But we attempt to delay this process of aging by concealing the signs with makeup. But many of us do not know how to properly apply makeup as our skin ages.
Here are four simple tips to look your best as your skin ages:
1. Stop using a lip liner pencil. Instead use a stiff-bristled lip liner BRUSH. This will help your lipstick stay and prevent bleeding or feathering of the color around your lips.
2. Apply a loose translucent powder with a good quality powder brush in the morning and don’t reapply during the day. Use sparingly as too much powder will actually accentuate the fine lines and wrinkles!
3. Depending on your skin-tone, use a beige-colored highlighter around the jowls to de-emphasize the shadow created by the jowls thereby making them less noticeable. To lessen the appearance of a saggy-neck, use a powder that is slightly darker than the surrounding skin and apply it under your chin. This will create the illusion of a shadow in that area and make it less prominent.
4. Ever been told that you shouldn’t use frosted eye shadow if you are over 30? If used properly, frosted eye shadow can actually make you look young! Just don’t use a single color over the entire eyelid.
Remember that being subtle is the key!
On the subject of brushes, it is very important that you use high quality brushes as it is evermore important that your makeup is applied evenly.
