We’re all on the quest to look and feel our most youthful and fresh—and in the beauty world, there are many creams, facials, and procedures to aid us on this mission.
But something as simple as the way you apply your makeup can also have a great effect on how young (or old) you look, and sometimes, it’s a very significant effect.
Today I present you the most useful make up tips to look younger!
1. Translucent Powder Lashes
A lots of makeup brands have recently released pricey white mascara or lash primers bases to make your lashes look fuller. However, you can actually achieve the same look by applying some translucent powder to your lashes between the first and second coat of mascara. This is not only cheaper and easier, but the translucent powder doesn’t leave the white cast that so many mascara primers do.
2. Lipstick Cream Blush
If you need to touch up your blush throughout the day and don’t have your compact handy, you can actually use your lipstick. A pink or red lipstick in a satin formula blends out nicely and creates a natural flush. This is also a great trick to use while traveling.
3. DIY Lip Gloss
You can create a unique, custom look that nobody else will have. If you have a broken eyeshadow color that you’re just not ready to part with, you can actually turn it into a lip gloss by mixing it with petroleum jelly. Just make sure the eyeshadow is in powder form.
4. Hairspray Brow Gel
Apply some hairspray to a spooly or an old toothbrush, then run it through your brows to set them in place. They’ll hold their shape all night long, and you don’t need to spend money on an expensive brow gel. And say goodbye to flyaway brows
5. Lip Highlight
To take your matte lip color to the next level, try applying a shimmery or frosty powder to the center of your lips after application. It will give your lips a subtle fullness and depth. Just be sure that the powder you use complements your lipstick shade.
6. Skin Colored Eyeliner
Don’t worry that everyone will see how tired you are at work today. Just apply a white or light eyeliner to your waterline to brighten your eyes. This trick really makes your eyes pop and creates the illusion of being more awake.
