How To Do Best Fine Makeup

How To Do Best Fine Makeup


Embrace a youthful exuberance at any age! While “more is better” applies to many joys in life (like coffee and gift cards), your makeup is another story entirely.

Too much makeup can settle into fine lines and wrinkles, magnifying rather than diminishing their appearance.

By simply choosing forgiving formulas and switching up your product selection, you can put your best face forward. Brush up (pun intended!) on these quick tricks to discover that turning back the hands of time can be as easy as opening your makeup bag!

1.APPLY PRIMER
After you moisturize, spread on a light primer with silica, which has a filling effect. A foundation that's creamy and moisturizing won't settle into fine lines and wrinkles, but use it sparingly the more you add, the more pronounced lines will look. We like Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup.

2.THICK FOUNDATION
"Heavy makeup is a one-way ticket to looking older than you actually are," says makeup artist Chrisanne Davis. Choose a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer (Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20), and after you apply it, press a damp makeup sponge into areas where you have wrinkles to soak up any excess.
While the less-is-more maxim may seem counter intuitive, "the more skin you can see, the better," says makeup artist Sandy Linter. "As long as it is well-hydrated, fresh skin looks much more youthful than an obviously covered complexion.

3. Pretty in Pink
Like face powder, a powder blush tries to sneak into those fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin appear dull or flat. A cream blush imparts a gorgeous glow to the cheeks while still looking natural and effortless. To add a youthful flush to your cheeks, choose a shade that complements your skin tone, and build up the color to your desired intensity. Remember to apply your cream blush with clean fingers to keep icky bacteria at bay!

4.Disguise Dark Circles
Whether those dark circles are hereditary, age related or simply due to a lack of sleep, they can draw your face downward, making you appear older than your years. The trick to effectively conceal those dark demons is to use a color correcting concealer that’s peach or salmon in hue. The warm tones counteract and neutralize the blue color characteristic of most under-eye circles. For an added youthful brightness, gently pat on a concealer (one shade lighter than your natural skin color) over the correcting concealer.

5. Keep it Light
In the spirit of keeping things light, a luminous shimmery eyeshadow (like Makeup Geek’s Shimma Shimma or Bling) applied to the inner corner of your eyes gives you that well rested, youthful, bright-eyed look. You can also add a small amount of your highlighting shadow under the brow to further brighten the eye. Note: When using an eyeshadow with shimmer, don’t go rogue! Stick to the inner corner (near the tear duct) and under the brow.

6. Just Wing It
Winging out your liner pulls the eye upward to create an instant lift that’s perfect for combating tired or aging eyes. While executing a winged eye can be a daunting task, the proper tools and product can make all the difference. We recommend using gel eyeliner with an angled brush like Makeup Geek’s Bent Liner Brush. Unfamiliar with how these items can achieve a cat eye or winged liner effect.

7.Eyes on the Skies
Curling your eyelashes is a quick and easy way to instantly make your eyes pop! Over time, eyelids are likely to start drooping and eyelashes can begin to flatten. Redirecting your lashes upward makes your eyes appear more open, wide, and therefore, more fresh and youthful looking. Give your lashes the pick-me-up they need and finish off the look with a couple coats of mascara.

8.Plump up Your Pout
Thinning lips is another common sign of aging. While your lips may not be as voluminous as they once were, you can use a plumping lip gloss to temporarily achieve the feeling and appearance of fuller, more supple-looking lips. The telltale sign of a good plumping gloss is a mild tingling sensation on the lips that means it’s working! Pro Tip: Avoid using dark lip colors as they can create a shadowed effect and inadvertently make your lips appear smaller.

9.Bolster Your Brows
As we age, our eyebrows can become both lighter and thinner, especially near the tail. Full, thick brows communicate youth, so fearlessly fill them in! This is one case in which powder is a mature gal’s friend. Ditch the brow gel or pencil and grab a brow powder or matte finish eyeshadow for a softer, more natural finish. Keep the outer portion of your brow the darkest and the inner portion of your brow the lightest. For the most realistic results, choose a brow color that either matches or is no more than two shades off your hair color.
