Not-To-Miss Makeup Tips To Look Younger And Flawless
It is a harsh fact but true nonetheless; as we age, our skin loses its youthful glow and softness, and spots, wrinkles and other signs of aging begin to appear. While these changes happen all throughout our body, it seems that the area that gets affected the most is our face, making us wish we had a time machine to transport us back to our youthful skin. However, until the day such a machine is available, here are some makeup tips to make you look younger.
Less Makeup Is More Beautiful
This is the exact opposite of what you thought, right? But, really, a face caked on with makeup (which is very obvious) looks more aged. On the other hand, a face with minimal makeup looks fresher and younger; so, tone down on the makeup.
Keep That Moisture
Your skin will tend to dehydrate at a faster rate as you get older. Hence, it is a must to give it all the hydration you can. Drink plenty of water and use a moisturizing lotion on a daily basis.
Forget the matte face look, and use a luminescent makeup base instead. BB and CC creams come handy here. They give your face coverage from the dark spots and crinkles, and also add a fresh dewy glow to your face.
Choose A Liquid Concealer
Switch your cake concealer for a lighter liquid one. Concealers that come in a box contain wax which when applied to your face will make it very evidently cakey. Choose a liquid concealer instead, that will effortlessly blend on your face.

Hide Crow's Feet
Those tiny wrinkles at the corner of your eyes, known as crow's feet, are amongst the first signs that reveal your age. So conceal them well, and even the skin tone in that area to hide your age.
Go A Shade Darker
Since the time you started using makeup you were told by everyone to choose a concealer shade closest to your skin tone. As you age though, your skin begins to get paler, and choosing a shade matching your skin now will further make you look paler and older. So opt for a shade darker than your skin tone.
Highlight The Plusses
Hide your flaws and highlight your good points with a highlighter. A little highlighter, applied strategically on your face, will give better definition to your face making it look years younger.
White For Your Waterline
Having bright open eyes is a sure shot way of looking ages younger. So grab a white liner for your water line. The white shade will highlight your eyes making them look bigger and awake.
Curl Those Lashes
Another trick to make your eyes look bigger is by lifting your eyelashes up. Invest in an eyelash curler and curl them on a daily basis. Your eyes will instantly look brighter and you younger.
Give Length Not Volume
Chances are that with age your eyelashes will begin to thin out. When this happens, using mascara to add volume to your lashes will leave them looking clumpy; lend some length to them instead. Apply mascara to lengthen and not thicken.
Shimmer In The Corner
Age doesn't mean that you need to forgo that pretty glitter. Adding a little bit of shimmery eye shadow on the inner corner of your eyes will make tired eyes look lively, and younger than they are.
Line Those Lips
Growing older will result in your lips not being as defined as they were earlier. Fret not, a simple lip liner will do the trick for you. Before applying lipstick, line your lips to give them a defined shape and avoid bleeding of the lip colour.

Fill Your Brows
Stop plucking on your eyebrows and try to keep them thicker. A thin eyebrow can make you look older, while a fuller one will make you look younger. So fill up any bald patches or scanty growth with an eyebrow pencil.
So, wait no more and let these makeup tips to look younger take you back in time; back to amazing and youthful looking skin!
