8 Makeup Tricks That Make You Look 10 Years Younger
We all know that a positive mental attitude and a healthy lifestyle can help us look and feel younger. But there are also plenty of makeup tricks that can assist with this process. Check out and try these basic tricks.
1. Moisturizing your face strategically
Slathering your skin with a moisturizer before applying makeup makes your skin look natural. Also, make sure to choose cosmetic products with moisture-rich formulas. After moisturizing, dab and blend the primer onto your face carefully.
2. Using a light-reflecting foundation
Light-reflecting liquid foundations add a dewy sheen and create a flawless canvas for your entire look. You can set a liquid foundation by dusting a light layer of loose powder on top to finish off your face.
3. Curling eyelashes for an instant life
Curling lashes give you big bright eyes, which is another sign of youth and vitality. Get the curler as close to the lash line as possible and curl for 15 seconds.
4. Getting thick and bushy brows
A thick, bushy, yet groomed brow gives you a fresh, young face. If your brows are naturally thinning from age, fill them in with a powder or other product to tame, shape and thicken.
5. Lining eyes to add definition
Eyes are tending to start to lose its shape when people are aging. A right eyeliner can make all difference. Starting at the outer corner of your eye, make the way in along the top lash line staying as close as possible. Add a thinner line to the bottom for a more dramatic look.
6. Choosing the right shadow color
Choosing a shadow color that will bring out the color of your eyes. If you have blue eyes, choose a shade that has bronze, plum, brown or terracotta tones.
7. Lighting up the lips
Make sure to line your lips with lip liner before applying lipstick because the liner gives your lips a fuller, more defined shape and becomes the basis to which your lipstick will adhere. Choose a creamy formula that's the same shade as your lipstick.
8. Restoring cheek with a pop of color
A sweep of bright blush on your cheeks lights up your face. A well-buffed and blended powder blush mimics the flush of a first kiss.
