Follow the tips below to hide deep facial wrinkles and fine lines, and have your skin look naturally youthful and glowing, not just in time for that special event but, but to keep our skin looking younger every day.
8Always Put On Your Sunscreen:
Want to prevent facial wrinkles, premature aging, and skin cancer, then you need to be dedicated to wearing sunscreen. Start using sunscreen with at least an SPF40 daily if you are not yet putting on one every day. Many foundations and other makeup products offer a built-in sun protection factor (SPF), but that is not enough. One, it doesn’t cover your entire skin surface, and two, it is not strong enough for daily sun protection.
7Don’t Overdo Your Makeup:
Wearing makeup is a great way to accentuate your features, hide wrinkles and skin blemishes, and create a perfect complexion for your skin. But if you aren’t careful with your cosmetics, your makeup will not look natural, and it will not bring out your best features. The trick to wearing makeup without overdoing it is all about choosing the right colors, generally, for people with older skin, lighter tones create the illusion of younger skin.
6Exfoliate Your Skin:
Exfoliate periodically depending on your skin type. If you don’t exfoliate regularly, this is a great tip to pick up. Mature skin over time can look dull and colorless, and this won’t do your wrinkles any favors. Exfoliating Scrubs off all those dead skin cells and will help to brighten your complexion. Exfoliation can also increase the production of collagen, the protein responsible for keeping skin plump and tight.
5Smoothing Your Skin:
A Perfect way for hiding your skin’s imperfections is a concealer and smoothen skin with a liquid foundation that is appropriate for your skin type. Choose a thin, light foundation. With thicker foundations, you run a higher risk of having product collect in fine lines. Better yet, try using a BB Cream (AKA, Blemish Balm or Beauty Balm). When you use BB cream that is right for your skin type, you got 80% of your makeup done.
4Brightening Your Complexion With Bronzer and Blush:
Use a smaller foundation brush to brush a bit of bronzer on your cheekbones. Blend it on with an upwards motion towards your temples, and this will add a bit of warmth to your skin, then apply a bit of blush to your cheeks. These products help to warm up the face, giving you a youthful glow that will make you look young and healthy by hiding your wrinkles and fine lines. Make sure to blend both your bronzer and blush thoroughly.
Tip: Make sure to put your bronzer on your cheekbones, rather than underneath them as you would in contouring. This can make your face appear more sunken, but the goal is to achieve a natural-looking glow.
3Maintain Well-Kept Eyebrows:
No matter what your age is, a good set of trimmed and adequately shaped eyebrows will balance your features, and frame your eyes which will help draw more attention to your eyes. First. Determine Your Ideal Shape, determine where your inner brow should begin, where your arch should peak, and where your outer brow should end. Once you found your ideal shaped eyebrows for your face, it is time to develop an everyday maintenance routine. Start by trimming your brows, use an eyebrow pencil to fill in sparse spots, brush the hairs in the direction that they naturally lie and apply clear mascara to set the hairs in place. By forming good habits will make your routine shorter, day by day.
2Consider Putting on a Highlighter:
Use a small amount of illuminating powder, cream highlight, or a liquid highlighter to make your face glow. Apply it to the very tops of your cheeks, towards your temples, to create dimension. This highlighter, in conjunction with your blush and bronzer, will make your skin appear youthful and glowing.
Tip: Again, make sure to get the highlighter into the fine lines, rather than brushing over them, this will give you a smoother look and not make your wrinkles and fine lines pop out.
1Set And Forget With Setting Spray:
Now you’re looking fantastic; a setting spray will help hold the makeup in place. Once you’ve carefully applied your makeup products and your skin is looking lovely, you don’t want anything to smudge or collect into your wrinkles or your fine facial lines. Just close your eyes, and spritz a setting spray over your entire face and you’re done. It will air dry quickly, and you’re all set!
Even as we grow older, no amount of makeup will beat smooth, flawless skin. So, keep in mind what you are aiming for with your daily makeup routine. Invest in earth, and natural-toned makeup’s like concealers, BB creams, and foundations. Remember too, that younger, healthier-looking skin starts with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
