WEB DESK: They say less is more, an minimal make up is the key to look younger and fresher. While you may take care of your skin regularly, the way you do make up may ad ten or more years on your face.
Here are seven easy ways to take years off of your face.
Choosing a dark lipstick
Lips lose their fullness over time, and dark colors make them look even smaller. Mauves and pinks, on the other hand, highlight lips and give the illusion of fullness. A swipe of lip gloss will plump them up even more.
Wearing the wrong color foundation
The right color foundations can do wonders to your skin. The darker color will make your face look older. The trick is when you buy your foundation, try it on your face instead of you hand and it should match even before blending.
Applying your blush to the wrong spot
For a youthful glow, lightly brush it along your cheekbone, starting under the center of your eye and sweeping upward. Here’s how makeup can make your face look thinner.
Lining the bottom of your eyes
Using a dark liner under your eyes will make your look too harsh and you will look older. Instead of that, it is better to use a white pencil that will make your eyes look bigger nad softer.
Using the wrong concealer shade
Trying to cover up under-eye circles with a shade that’s too light will accentuate your dark patches just as much as a dark shadow. Also avoid green-based products, which will bring out shadows.
Finishing with powder
