In our times, there is a general mass freak-out to look the best of all, youngest of all and attractive among all. For this, the ladies hit their makeup shelves, unknowingly ruining their beautiful skin. Below mentioned are few makeup trends that tend to make you appear older.
Heavy black eye liner
- – Dark, dramatic eyes can be tricky to pull off
- – Our eyelashes thin out as we get older and women sometimes try to overcompensate for that with lots of black makeup.
- – All that does, though, is draw attention to the wrinkles around your eyes.
- – Skip liquid liners, too, which can be too heavy, and opt for a soft, easy-to-apply pencil.
Being Ignorant To Skin
- – Even if you’re wearing sunscreen on your face every day, chances are you may be neglecting other parts of your body.
- – Your hands, neck, and chest are also exposed to sun on a daily basis, and women tend to forget about protecting them the same way they do their face.
- – Along with a regular SPF, a daily moisturizer can also keep skin looking and feeling smooth and baby soft.
Wearing dark lipstick
- – A lot of women are really stuck on the idea of always using heavy lipstick
- – But one that’s too dark may just draw attention to laugh lines.
- – Instead a gloss gives a softer, more youthful appearance.
Using too much or the wrong foundation
– They can make dry skin—a common problem as you age—look flaky.
– Also, be sure your foundation matches your skin tone, which can also change as you get older.
Going rogue with rouge
– Too much blush doesn’t just look bad—it can really label you as an “old lady”.
Wearing too much shimmer
– Stay away from “frost” or “iridescent” eye shadow if your goal is to look younger
– Instead, apply a matte shadow to your entire lid and—if you do want a bit of shimmer—apply just a touch to the inner corners.
Not using the right moisturizer
– Our skin tends to get drier as we get older, and moisturizer becomes more and more important
– Without a base of hydrated, healthy skin, makeup can only do so much—and it may even make dry, flaky skin look worse.
Troubling your eyes
– We apply all kinds of creams and cosmetics there, but you can do more harm than good if you’re too aggressive.
– Too much rubbing, poking, and prodding can not only damage the skin but it can cause red, puffy eyes, as well—not a good look at any age.
– Always remove eye makeup at the end of the day but use a gentle cleanser and a soft towel or cotton swab; avoid scrubbing too hard or using a rough washcloth.
