TIMELESS BEAUTY TIPS FOR ALL AGES
Navigating the natural changes in your face through the years can be confronting and overwhelming - although it need not be. Try the below makeup rules to ensure you look and feel your best.
Make sure your lashes are
defined and curled
stay in line
The structures that make our lips plump and full gradually break down with age, which leads to a thinner lip and the border of the lip line softening. To avoid your lipstick bleeding, create definition with lip
liner – but you’ve probably been applying it wrong! Apply your liner on the outside edge of the lips rather than the inside as this will give the
illusion of a fuller lip.
Find your perfect match
The biggest mistake women make is mismatching their foundation shade – often going for a shade
paler than they should. Match foundation to your jawline, not the back of your hand, as it is the
closest match to your face.
Eyes wide open
Lashes open up the eye area making you look more youthful and awake, so you want to make sure your lashes are defined and curled right up from the root. Don’t underestimate the power of an eyelash curler! Heat the curler with your hairdryer for eight seconds to give longer hold and then clamp down on your lashes for about 15 seconds. A non-clumping mascara is also a non-negotiable!
Ease up on the blush
As we age, we experience volume loss in the face, which is accentuated further when we overdo it with the blush. Adjust your technique. So, instead of brushing on from mouth to ear, lightly sweep blush atop cheekbones to lift cheeks and help conceal any gauntness.
