Can your makeup help turn back the clock?

Can your makeup help turn back the clock?

14 April 2015

Do you ever look in the mirror and wonder if you’ll ever find a solution to those unwanted wrinkles, occasional blemishes, and dry sensitive skin? Suffering from a seemingly never-ending bout of skin problems can have an ageing effect, which of course nobody wants. So what if we were to tell you that you can turn back the clock with a little help from your makeup?

Before you start reaching for your lipstick and mascara, you’ll need to ensure your skin is in tip top condition. Regularly moisturising the skin on your face and neck will keep it hydrated, plump and supple – all qualities associated with a youthful look. Moisturiser helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles, giving you enviably smooth skin.

Now comes the makeup part. Start with your base makeup – if this isn’t working for you then you’ll need to do something about it. Liquid foundation for example helps to achieve a younger-looking face than cakey powder based products, so if you’re using the latter, switch it up for a liquid version.

Make use of the many foundation matching services offered by cosmetics companies. Not only will you find the right shade and tone to give you a glowing complexion, you’ll also save a fortune on Anti-Ageing products. Why? The right foundation gives you a warmer complexion, which in turn makes you look more youthful.

If you don’t already, make primer your go-to product. This handy little formula helps to keep your skin hydrated all day long, preventing your makeup from flaking. And everyone knows that flaky, cakey makeup is ageing.

Lift your cheekbones by applying a cream-based blusher to the apples of your cheeks. Many women tend to apply blusher too low down on their face, which flattens the features, making you look older than you actually are.

Open your eye up by applying liner to the top and bottom. Only applying it to one and not the other will make them appear smaller. Larger, rounder eyes give a more youthful look.
