There are many suggestions on how to prevent or reduce skin damage. But what if you want to look ten years younger right now? Thankfully, there are simple makeup tricks that help you look more youthful and glowing without having to wait for months or years. With these simple tricks, you can cut off years without having to spend a lot of money.
The first step is to apply a good moisturiser such as COSRX Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion With Birch Sap. Even though it may seem obvious, if you forget, all the other steps are worthless.
Use a hydrating mask such as ANNIE'S WAY Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brighting Jelly Mask, which is designed to remove skin impurities.
2. Shape Your Eyebrows
As you get older, your eyebrows begin to thin out. If you want to look younger, you need to create the illusion of fuller eyebrows. You can highlight your brows’ natural shape with an eyebrow pencil such as ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Eye Brow New. Make sure to choose an eye pencil that matches your hair colour.
3. Conceal Your Eyes
Don’t forget to conceal the darkness at the inner corners of your eyes. It seems simple, but this trick will instantly brighten your entire face, even if you are not wearing makeup as it will make your face look refreshed and well-rested.
Use a concealer such as THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF 28 in an upside-down shape, to bring your cheeks forward.
4. Choose A Lightweight Foundation
Choose a lightweight and luminous foundation to cover your fine lines and wrinkles. It is best to use a liquid foundation or a tinted moisturiser with luminescent ingredients to give your skin a glowing complexion.
An excellent option is MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42, which is available in five colours. It promotes reverse-age results as it smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
5. Avoid Using Tinted Face Powder
Covering your skin by using tinted face powder is not a good idea if you want to look younger. Use a translucent, light-diffusing powder such as INNISFREE NO Sebum Mineral Powder instead to set your foundation.
6. Curl Your Lashes
These days many people consider that using an eyelash curler is old-fashioned, but it’s perfect to look younger. As you get older, your lashes begin to flatten, so curling your lashes is key to give your eyes a more youthful expression.
Use SHU UEMURA Eyelash Curler, to create a beautiful natural curl.
7. Apply Blush
Blush is excellent for making you look younger, but it is imperative to choose the right colour. If your skin tone is fair to medium, use a peach tone; for medium to dark, choose a coral tone.
It is best to avoid anything too sparkly. Take note that a blush which is too-dark or too-bright can easily make you look older.
You can use cream blushes such as ARITAUM Sugarball Cushion Blush as they look more natural on the skin. Be sure to apply them correctly; instead of using your fingers, try using a blush brush as it is easier to work with.
8. Lighten Your Hair
Remember that the older you get, the lighter colours will look better. Take note that this doesn’t mean that you should go blonde, but dark-haired people should add a few highlights.
Highlights are a great way to disguise grays, and they prevent your hair from fighting with your skin, as your complexion is less radiant as you get older.
9. Wear Brown Eyeliner
Deep brown has the same effect as black but looks less intense. You want less intensity and more sophistication.
Use Deep Brown from MACQUEEN Waterproof Pen Eyeliner along the upper lashes, and don’t forget to lift the lines at the outer corners.
10. Lengthen Your Eyelashes
Stay away from extra weight mascara formulas and use a lengthening mascara, like TONY MOLY Curling and Long lash Circle, which helps your lashes make an impact, and you look younger.
11. Switch To Nude Lips
It is a fact that as we get older, our lips get smaller. So your best option is to choose shades that boost your natural lip tone. Use something between your natural lip color and a berry shade. Use tint lipsticks to avoid the colour from bleeding. Don’t forget to apply a clear gloss to help your lips look full and hydrated.
A perfect choice is PERIPERA Ink The Velvet 4G, which will provide your lips with long-lasting, vibrant colour and hydration.
