Hi Beautilicious:

We all know we are not getting any younger and we want to look younger once we reach a certain age. Right? I would love to put translucent powder or do the bake thing on my face LOL but I know I can’t.  I would love to do many things but it doesn’t look as good as it does other young ladies. It is not you can’t do it well. It just means you should find a way to do it that will fit you. Be creative. Practice, practice, practice. Never give up. Below are makeup tips to make you look younger.



Moisturize-    Before putting on your makeup moisturize. This is the most important part before putting on makeup. Moisturizer helps keep your skin hydrated. Moisturizer also helps your face have a smoother surface to apply makeup. On top of that, it can help protect your skin from getting foundation clogged in your pores, as well as dirt.



 Concealer- We should invest in a good creaseless concealer. As we age we want to cover up more fine lines, dark circles or redness.




Buy A Yellow Tone Foundation- Why yellow tone? Yellow warms up the skin. The warmer the skin looks the younger it looks. Above is a chart that will help you under stand different tones.



Skip face powder- Covering your skin with powder will only make it worse. Any wrinkles or fine lines will be very noticeable.



Show off your bone structure- Rub blush in along the highest points of your cheekbones it makes your bone structure stand out. As we age we loose the fat in the face, take advantage of that.

Apply Eyeshadow Base– By dabbing a small amount of eyeshadow base or primer will keep the eyeshadow in place.

Shimmer- a bit of shimmer is flattering as you get older because it brings light to the face.  Dab it on the inner corners of the eyes to wake up the face.



Lengthening Mascara- With age the lashes starts to get thinner.  I suggest mascara that lengthens and gives volume, the mascara with long wands will help you coat each lash.



Nude Lipstick/Gloss- the best approach is to stick to shades that enhance your natural lip tone, rather than bringing attention to the area. Nude colors will just boost your natural tone.




Highlighter- to obtain a nice youthful glow dab the highlighter on the cheekbones, nose, chin, lip and forehead as shown in the picture.

I hope these tips are helpful to you.

Remember, you are beautiful no matter what.
