Apply your make-up following some certain steps and you will always look youthful and fresh. The way you apply make-up depends on your current age. You should not do what you used to do when you were in your 20’s.
Now it’s time for a different type of products and even their quality. The more mature you are the better make-up you should use. If you are over 25 years old, then you should definitely learn and remember the advice we are about to share with you. Follow the rules in order to shed a few years. Here are the main 6 things to keep in mind:
1. Get rid of sparkle, frost and shimmer
Shimmery and sparkling make-up looks great on those who are in their late teens or early 20’s. If you are older than that, you are strongly recommended to stop applying this kind of products.
2. Skip powder
Greasy shine on your face is never attractive. That’s what powder is for – to make a matte finish. However, too much powder will only make wrinkles more visible. Use moisturizing matte finish foundation instead of powder.
3. Learn to apply mascara
Experts suggest applying mascara of natural colors instead of black. One coat of the product is always enough to make your eyes more defined and your whole look young and fresh. Avoid unnatural green, blue or violet mascara.
4. Do not overdose foundation
Foundation even the skin and hides imperfections. However, if you apply too much of the product, you will only make yourself look worse. A thick layer of foundation will define your wrinkles and fine lines and you will look older. Use foundations of light consistency plus do not apply too much of it. This rule applies even to those who are still young. You should also be always sure that the shade of the foundation you use matches well and is easy to blend in. Opt for foundations that contain moisturizer or moisturize your skin before applying the foundation.
5. Opt for creamy lipstick
Matte lipstick visually makes your lips look thin. Besides, matte lipstick dries and damages tender lip skin. This in turn defines fine lines around your mouth which makes a woman look older. Give your preference to creamy lipstick that is not too glossy.
6. Say no to liquid liner
There is an option: kohl. Use brown kohl instead of black liquid liner. Cream liner is fine too. You can even use darker eye shadow and apply it to the outer corner of your eyes. Your look will be less dramatic yet more youthful and bright.
