Makeup Mistakes That Age You

makeup-mistakes-age

Who does not like to have a young and fresh look? However, as we start ageing, our face starts showing the symptoms. This is when everyone starts running around finding solutions to either hide it or remove it. The simple and best aid to gain that ‘young and fresh’ look is by applying makeup. Nevertheless, as you age, your skin texture itself changes, and so, you may need to change your makeup style accordingly. If you do not look into it, the makeup could make you look even more older. So, always be careful when you apply makeup. Here, in this article, you can find a list of the most common makeup mistakes that will add years rather than removing them. You can read further to see if you are performing any of these ageing mistakes and what you can do so as to rectify them.

Foundation Faux Pas

The base of any look is the Foundation.However, as you start ageing, your foundation need will also change accordingly. Maybelline New York artist Melissa Silver opined that no foundation is better than bad foundation, although a good foundation is best. The tone of your skin will be uneven if you skip the foundation. And too much of foundation can highlight your imperfections such as the creases and fine lines. We do not need something which is cakey. So choose a formula that is thick enough to even out your complexion. A liquid cream foundation or a tinted moisturiser is better as you age because your skin tends to grow dry by then.

Blushing Beauty

Try not to use blush on your cheeks until you have reached your high school. Too much blush, and picking the wrong shade of blush should also be avoided. Celebrity makeup artist Jan Ping, Los Angeles, says that there was a particular era when more was sufficient when it came to blush, and you can still find those women today because they are still heaping it on. Say ‘No’ to dark brown and dark red shades since they may look muddy when applied. Choose a cream formulation rather than powder so as to avoid a flaky finish. A small amount should be applied to the centre of your cheekbone and sweep back and upward and blend it well.

Only Lining The Bottom Lash Line

The heavy liner on the lower lid will make your eyes look smaller and also drag your whole face down. So, even if it consumes time, try to line our upper lid as well. If this is applied correctly, it will brighten and intensify your eyes. Make sure that you use a soft pencil liner of a lighter shade if possible. You should apply this near to the lash line. Begin at the outer corner and manage your way in. Use a moderate touch when doing the bottom lid.


Concealer mishaps

A concealer ideal for covering spots or blemishes will possibly be too thick for using under the eye. Makeup artist Lavonne says that if the concealer is very thick or not the correct colour; then you are stressing more than you are “concealing”. She also added that strict care should be taken since the skin under your eye is much thinner than the rest of the face, so a light care is what is necessary. It is better to use a lightweight formulation for under-eye use, and also don’t forget to choose a shade that suits your skin tone. Apply only to the inside edge of your under-eye area, and smoothly blend and sweep downwards and upwards.


Eyebrow Emergency

One of the fact of life is that our eyebrows grow thinner as we age. If you are generally a compulsive plucker, it could even result in thin brows that will make you look older. You can fill in your brows with an eye pencil or fine brush paired with a gel brow pomade or a pencil or brow powder. You should make sure that your brows are perfectly groomed by using a brow brush. Begin at the inner edge of your brows, and use feathered, short strokes that follow your original brow line.

Metallic Eyeshadow

You may love using the metallic eyeshadows. However, it can really age you if your eyelids are not as tight or firm as they used to be. Wrinkles and fine lines appear on our eyelids as we get old. When you use a metallic shade all over your lid, it will settle in these lines, producing an unattractive crepe-like look. Alternatively, you can use a matte shadow all over the eyelid, and reduce your shimmer by applying the metallics to the inside corner only.

Lipstick That Is Too Dark

As we grow old, our lips become thinner and start losing definition.
Except when you plan on going insane with the liner to overdraw your lips, you will need to begin easing away from darker shades, which make your lips seem thinner. Jan Ping describes her plan for perfect lips starting with the lip liner which is preferably a beautiful neutral shade that is slightly bolder than the person’s natural lip colour. She lines the lip first followed by filling the rest with a tinted gloss. Many women are stuck on the belief of always using dark lipstick, but according to Jan Ping, the gloss gives a softer and more youthful look.
