You might have been adventurous with your beauty while at your prime but now that you age is catching up with you you’ve reduced your slayings but there’s this urge to continue.
There are basic make up tips you can adopt to maintain your glow.
With the correct tools and advice, it is possible to convert yourself into a younger version of yourself.
Even if you’re a complete novice with no prior makeup experience, there are a few things you can do to easily turn back the clock. Let’s have a look at a couple of them:
#1 Skip the Powder
Do you remember our moms using “pancake” powder when we were kids? Toss that out!! If you want to set your makeup with powder, choose a translucent powder and apply it with a brush. Then use a setting spray, which can aid in a variety of ways.
It sets your makeup and prevents powder lines in fine lines, making you appear younger.
#2 Apply Translucent Powder on Your Lashes
As a result, we’re getting rid of the powder that’s been causing our skin to age. But don’t discard it just yet. Before applying mascara, coat and prime your lashes with loose powder.
If you have a pressed powder, use a clean mascara brush to loosen it up. Dust the powder onto your lashes with the wand.
Wiggling the wand in at the root, apply two coats of mascara.
Sweep up and inward toward your nose from there.
Sweep away any extra powder that has gotten out of bounds with a clean brush. Suddenly, your lashes appear to be longer and thicker.
#3 Baby Oil Makeup Remover
Eyelash thinning and loss is a common side effect of growing older. It’s quite normal, but one thing you can do to slow down the process is to remove any traces of mascara every night.
After that, you’ll want to maintain your existing lashes conditioned.
Have some baby oil on hand in addition to your standard remover so you never have an excuse not to do it.
True, it’s gentle enough for kids, but you don’t want to get the oil in your eyes directly. Using a cotton round, drip a few drops.
Swipe the circular back and forth with your closed eye.
To clear up any smears, apply one more drop to the other side of the circle and repeat. Everything is clean and moisturized!!
#4 Tinted Moisturizer
Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you have to cover your face in foundation — there’s nothing to hide! A skin that is fresh, even, and moisturized appears to be more youthful.
Mix a small amount of your preferred moisturizer with your foundation. It’s the ultimate “no makeup” appearance.
#5 Lipstick Cream Blush
Cream formulas are preferable to dry formulas that adhere in crevices and accentuate wrinkles.
In any case, some cream blushes linger significantly longer than powder blushes.
The key is to remember that you don’t always need to purchase a new item.
Try applying blush with a peach, pink, or red lipstick. Even if the lipstick is quite bright, you should only need a dot or two.
Begin by positioning it further away from your nose than you would a powder blush.
Finish with a little brush mixing after you’ve blended well with your fingertips. It’s that simple!
#6 Lip Contouring with Concealer
Subtle shadows are cast by any wrinkles, hollowness, or sagging around your lips. To avoid any discoloration, conceal the area around them.
Your lips will stick out a little more as a result of this. It can also be used to cover up any minor flaws after applying lipstick.
Do you want your lips to appear fuller? Also, a little concealer or highlighter can assist.
Make two to four very little dots in the center of your mouth with the concealer or highlighter after setting/blotting your lipstick.
Pat with a clean, firm brush until well mixed. This will give depressed lips more depth.
#7 Are you over 50 and need a foundation? Yellow Undertones are a good choice.
Foundation choosing, like many other things in life, becomes easier as you become older.
Rather than debating if you’re pink or neutral, opt for a slightly yellow undertone.
Although it isn’t a universal rule, many women find that a warmer colour suits them better as they become older.
The smidgeon of gold lends a touch of warmth that is more often associated with youth.
