Make-Up Mistakes That Are Aging You

Posted April 18th, 2014 @ 5:03am by Chilli Amar



Most women wear make-up to look and feel good. However, you may be making common mistakes that are making you look older.

According to the Huffington Post, here are 10 MAKE-UP MISTAKES THAT ARE AGING YOU:


1. DO skip face powder: Most of us reach for powder to set makeup, but it also tends to magnify lines in the skin, aging us. If you can’t give up powder, try switching to a sheer translucent powder or a mineral-based one, which illuminates and brightens the skin.

2. DO opt for brown eyeliner over black: Switch to a softer shade of brown and avoid lining the lower lash line which can look overdone. Avoid a heavy hand with eyeliner – a thick liner can make upper lids look heavy.

3. DO make blush your friend: The right color blush can add a youthful look to a tired face, but the key is finding a shade that is just right. Women with fair and medium skin tones should look for rosy pinks and peaches, and darker skin tones look best with coral and berry shades.
