Makeup should make you even more attractive and certainly not add years! We talked with a professional makeup artist and found out how to paint with the appearance of age-related changes and what mistakes in make-up should be avoided.
With the advent of age-related changes, not all makeup techniques are appropriate. We in no way suggest that you forget about bright colors and stop experimenting, but you should still take into account a few points so as not to add extra years to yourself - this, you must admit, is not needed by anyone!
Don't make the following mistakes:
1. Too thick foundation
The shade of the foundation should be half a tone lighter than your skin color, it will make your face younger and give a touch of aristocracy. The main thing is to remember about moisturizing ingredients! The more of them in the product, the better. And also be sure to pay attention to the density of tone: the older the skin, the drier it tends to be, so it is better to use a product with a thin coating. Spot problems such as pigmentation and blemishes are best "corrected" with a concealer.
2. Unpainted eyelashes
Never be afraid to paint over your lashes with black mascara and fill in the lash line with a black pencil. This will add volume to your lashes, make your eyes look brighter and bigger, and also distract attention from the fine lines around your eyes.
3. Metallic eyeshadow and powder with shimmery particles
Do not overuse the "heavy" textures of the eyeshadow, as they easily accentuate the texture of the eyelid. Instead, add a satin eyeshadow to your makeup bag without the individual glitters that sand down the eyelid. Also, we do not recommend applying powder with a shimmer all over your face, changing them to a finishing powder that visually diffuses light and creates a Photoshop effect on the skin.
4. Unkempt irregular eyebrows
An ambiguous eyebrow shape, an inappropriate shade or too thin eyebrows - all this makes the face look tired and empty. Draw the eyebrows with special means, while focusing on the roots of the hair - the color of the eyebrows should be half a tone lighter than them. Eyebrows help to "open" the eyes and create a completely different look of the face.
5. Too dark and coffee shades of lipstick
Dark brown and burgundy lipstick shades will make you look more mature than you really are. Unfortunately, coffee and caramel ones are also an unsuccessful option, with them the face fades. The most versatile are light colors: pink, peach with a touch of coral. With these shades, you will always radiate youth and beauty.
6. Too much bronzer
A surefire way to give your face a fresh look in a couple of seconds is to apply a pink or soft peach blush. And brown or burgundy, on the contrary, can easily add age and extra fatigue to you. How to apply them correctly for a lifting effect - see our material.
In general, smile more often, and even better - laugh more often! This is a good workout for the muscles of the face, and the perky shine in the eyes will not allow anyone to doubt your youth and attractiveness.
