Makeup is a wonderful way to enhance your natural beauty or experiment with different looks; however, for most people, makeup is a way to achieve a youthful and healthy look, whatever your age. Here are some top makeup tips and tricks to help ensure you always look youthful.
Enhance Your Eyes
As you get older, your eyes are one of the first places to show signs of aging, making it essential that you take care of them with skincare products, but also enhance them using the correct makeup. Adding a touch of white or cream colored eyeliner to your waterline is a great way to make your eyes appear larger and more open for a fresh, youthful look. It is also incredibly discreet, so it will make your eyes pop without being too dramatic. Another option is to add a touch of metallic, like with the b.Seductive Eye Kit in The Warm Nudes. Unlike a hard black liner, the metallic gold liner adds a touch of glimmer and pop without looking like a mess if there’s a bit of a smudge.
Get The Glow
Glowing, dewy skin has undoubtedly become more popular than a matte finish in recent years, and it’s a great way to get flawless-looking skin that is radiant and fresh. Opt for a liquid highlighter for an even more natural effect, and try mixing it in with your moisturizer for an all-over, effortless glow. You can then finish by applying a tinted moisturizer, BB cream, or light foundation on top. Choose a light, buildable formula, like the SIIA Cosmetics Luminous Longwear Liquid Foundation which delivers a natural, radiant finish with buildable coverage.
Curl Your Lashes
Never underestimate the power of a pair of eyelash curlers and a good mascara. Using a pair of lash curlers before you apply your mascara can instantly give you a wide-eyed, more youthful look, and will also make your lashes appear longer and lifted. If your lashes are being stubborn and not curling well, you can heat your eyelash curler with a blow dryer before curling.
When applying your mascara, you can achieve a more lengthened appearance by tilting the wand vertically and gently brushing upwards. Using the brush horizontally will help build more volume, but using it vertically adds length without too much density for a softer look.
While there is such a thing as going “too white” with your smile, an at home whitening kit will help brighten up your complexion and give a more youthful appearance. Our favorite brand is Crest Whitening Strips because you can whiten on the go, and they really work!
