Hiding Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Beauty has no age limit. But products do. So when it comes to makeup, don’t settle for what has worked well in the past. Your skin has changed and so has its needs. Open yourself up to a new regime, one that reflects who you are now.
The best foundation for aging skin is one that will even out skin tone and diminish fine lines and wrinkles, without leaving your skin looking mask-like. Heavier foundations and matte finishes tend to sink into fine lines, so opt for a liquid, cream or mineral formula. To make sure your foundation and makeup last the day use a translucent powder to set your look. It also aids in absorbing oil giving your skin a shine free finish. To apply, use a large brush sweeping lightly all over your face.
Brighten Aging Skin
Just like foundation, concealer comes in a range of colors and varieties. So it is very important to analyze your skin and determine exactly what your needs are. To add to your anti-aging skin care routine look for a concealer that has a firming agent and improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Apply your concealer after your foundation. This prevents caking and will help you to use less. As with all makeup, be extra careful around the delicate area of your eyes. Never rub, simply pat or dab the concealer on the under eye area to blend. After you’ve applied your concealer add a bit of glow to your complexion with bronzer.
Everyone enjoys the healthy glow you get by being out in the sun. But sadly, that healthy glow that the sun gave you is also wrecking havoc on your skin. By investing in a good bronzer, you can look like you have been in the sun without the damaging effects.
Bronzers come in many forms, liquids, creams, powders and gels. Sometimes, choosing a bronzer that is right for your skin tone can seem tricky and daunting. But the general rule is to choose one that is two shades darker than your natural complexion.
Think of lip liner as the foundation for lipstick. Because really, that is exactly what it is. Lip liner is available in a variety of forms. Whether you are looking for a standard lip pencil, a lip stain or a lip smudge it is important to keep in mind that your lip liner should be two shades darker than your lipstick.
As with all make up, your skin color is the deciding factor for any color you put on your face. Red lipstick just doesn’t look good on everyone. But matte lipstick does. The thing to keep in mind when choosing a matte lipstick, besides your skin color, is application. Be sure to use a lip liner and clean up any smudges with a q-tip.
Now that you have perfected your lips it is time to focus on your eyes. Mascara is the number one go to in a ladies makeup arsenal. When choosing a mascara, avoid black and look for one that creates volume. Volumizing mascara not only adds volume to your lashes but creates depth as well. Add a sense of mystery to your look with long playful lashes.
