Makeup has the power to make anyone look beautiful, elegant and presentable when done in the right way. But some mistakes in applying the makeup can make you look 10 years older. Believe me, this is true!
These are some of the makeup mistakes that can make you look older:
Foundation is the most important part of makeup and choosing the right shade and type of foundation makes a lot of difference. For instance, applying a powder foundation on dry skin can make you look older than you are. Applying foundation heavily can highlight the creases and fine lines on the face instead of covering them. Using the same foundation may not be correct after some years and trying the new ones is good. Choosing the shade which gives a natural look is the best foundation for any woman.
Applying the right blush brings a natural glow to the face and the cheeks. The blush shade should be chosen based on the lip color and skin tone. Pink, peach shades of blush go well with fair and medium skin tones. Shades of the orange and bronze suit the medium complexion skin tone. Again, choosing the right shade and type of blush can make you look younger and bright. The blush should be on the cheeks and it should be applied towards the temples in upper strokes.
Lip liner if applied thick or by applying a darker shade lip liner can make you look older. Lip liner should be chosen so that it matches the lipstick color or the natural color of the lips. Using a creamy pencil to line the lips gives natural look to the lips.
We apply eye pencil to highlight the eyes and to make them look bigger. But when the eyeliner is applied only under the lower lids then the eyes look smaller. The correct way is to apply the eyeliner on both the upper and lower eyelids nearer to the eyelashes. It is better to choose a softer eye pencil to line the eyelids and to smudge the liner so that it looks lighter.
The bright red, blue, green shades of eye shadows can make you look older than your age. The usual maroon, brown shades of eye shadow make the eyes look attractive.
Ladies, avoid these makeup mistakes to look younger and beautiful.
