So there’s so many different types of makeup and so many looks you can create and once you learn a few tricks you can experiment away until your wee hearts content! Since there are so many possibilities that also leave room for making mistakes and creating looks that you weren’t necessarily opting for. Rarely do people wish to look older than they are, unless maybe they are going for an interview and so want to look more experienced than there young years or they are acting in a play and need to look older. So this post can do both, how to avoid looking older or look older if that’s what you’re going for….
1. APPLYING CONCEALER DARKER THAN YOUR SKIN COLOR
Always test the makeup on your neckline, as here is lighter than your face and if it doesn’t blend into your neck then you look like you are wearing a mask. Professionals suggest fluid makeup that has luminous particles to make your skin glow not thick makeups which tend to stick to your face.
2. OVERDOING THE MASCARA ON THE LOWER LASHES
Too much mascara on the lower lashes can make your eyes look heavy and tired, extra concentration here will also shift the focus to the fine lines under your eyes. One or two brush strokes is sufficient.
3. WEARING THE WRONG LIPSTICK TONE
When your lips are naturally narrow, you should avoid using light-toned lipsticks. They can make your lips look even thinner and so make you look older. Darker tones can gives your lips a fuller look.
4. APPLYING DARK EYE-SHADOWS IN THE WRONG PLACE
Just dab the outside corners with dark eye-shadows for a smoky look. Putting it on the lid can make your eye appear heavy and tired.
