Here are ten make up tips to hide your age.
Apply moisturiser onto your face and leave for ten minutes before applying your foundation.
2. Add Water
To achieve a smoother finish use a creamy foundation with a drop of water.
3. Lighter Concealer
Use a concealer that is a shade lighter than your skin and apply before you do the general coverage of your foundation. Blend the foundation into the concealer to hide imperfections.
4. Lighter Blusher
Used a lighter, softer shade of blusher on the cheekbones.
5. Softer Eyeliner
Choose softer eyeliners in greys or browns and draw them on your upper eye only. A dark-chocolate eyeliner will enhance rather than draw attention to fine lines.
6. Powder Eye-shadows
Use powder eye shadow because cream based formulas can settle into the creases of the lids.
7. Avoid Excess Glitter & Sparkly
Avoid shimmer. Formulas with shiny particles will illuminate every line, pore and wrinkle. Leave the shimmer for “tweens” and young girls.
8. Switch from Shading to Highlighting
Instead of shading your face, switch to highlighting. These are not the years of your life that you want to look gaunt. Use paler hues to accentuate under the brows of your eyes to get a mini lift and try using a lighter blush along the cheekbones rather than under them to plump your cheeks.
9. Blot Instead of Powder
9. Too much powder will make you look older. Everyone in the make up industry is unanimous on this point. Be careful how much powder you apply and avoid re-applying through the day as a quick fix. Use blotting papers for a shiny forehead, nose and chin rather than powder.
10. Practice, Practice, Practice
Take some time out to sit in front of a mirror and re-imagine your new look. Experiment with these tips and to create a softer looking you. Practice apply your new look; after all it took you years to get good at what you were doing before, so do yourself the favour and get great at your new look.
