As young as a woman may feel and act, at around the age of 50 most women start to show signs of aging on their face. Some of these women may even turn to cosmetic surgery to look younger. However, most women can achieve the same result with the smart usage of makeup and cosmetics. It is not enough and even detrimental to use too much or the wrong kind of makeup. Even with the proper kinds of makeup, there are certain ways to use and apply them to get a more youthful appearance. Below you will find a makeup regimen that should provide you a natural looking, more youthful face.
Skin dryness is one of the biggest factors in an older appearance. Therefore, it is crucial to keep your face hydrated. Always fully cleanse your face, rub in a couple of drops of facial oil and then liberally apply a high quality moisturizer. Then, it is essential to prime your skin, to help to smooth out your skin and blur imperfections so your foundation glides on better.
Always use a creamy liquid foundation — and apply it sparingly. You want your face to look natural, so you don’t want to “cake” on your foundation. Apply your foundation by dotting a little foundation on your forehead, nose and chin, then blend outwards towards your ears, hairline and neck. For the best results, use a damp sponge or fluffy brush to buff out any harsh lines.
– First, always apply primer to your eyelids.
– Dot your eyeliner, don’t drag it; liquid liners are great, too, because they don’t tug at your skin.
– Brown or jewel-toned eyeliners are best to use.
– Avoid brown and beige eyeshadows.
Using a brow gel, brush your eyebrow hairs upwards and outwards for a fluffier look. Then, go back and fill in any sparse spots, making sure each hair is coated in color.
Apply lip liner before your lipstick. Start from the four outer corners of your lips and draw until you have a full outline. The goal is to apply your liner in four separate strokes. Then, apply a creamy, moisturizing lipstick using a lip brush.
