Looking older isn’t a reflection on how healthy you are or how well you take care of yourself, it’s about how much you spend. What you spend money on says more about you.
Shopping is a way to communicate, stress-plus-plus-plus money equals beauty! It’s not just looking closely at expensive products or spending more than you should but it is. You can still determine whether or not a product is worth its cost by how beautiful it makes your skin.
Many times products are blended together and given as gifts, making it difficult to find the right one for you. Many times people don’t ask what brand or what style of makeup they want until it is too late and they want something new.
Trace the formation with a soft pencil
Make a line along the edges of your face where the skin is slightly thinner. Then, draw a line on top of that line to trace the curve of your cheek, jawline, and chest.
This is where your makeup should meet your skin!
Using a tracing method is a great way to make makeup look more pronounced. Using a Concealing Concealer at first and adding more creamier foundations as you get used to your skin is one way to do this. Or using Powder Blush for now and adding blush later!
Try some different products and see what works for you! Many times, my friends who are very skilled in makeup say nothing changes until they start throwing away some old products. Then, something does look more natural!
Do not worry about putting on too much makeup at this stage.
Use a soft brush to blend the pencil into your skin
When applying makeup, remember that the harder the brush you use to apply it, the deeper the wrinkles will be.
To increase the amount of time your wrinkles will look smoother, softer brushes need to be utilized. You can also utilize heavier brushes for more volume in your face structure.
To decrease the amount of time your makeup will stay on, use a soft brush that will easily pass through the tube. You can also emphasize harsher brushes to get some volume on your face.
ephemeral or temporary cosmetic brands that you can buy at any store. Some of these brands include Makeup Forever, L’Oreal Professional Makeup Expert Touch Up Tubes, and Eudra packaging.
Use a light, neutral foundation
Under-foundationing can be a big mistake people make. Under-dressing causes the skin on your face and body to become thinner and more fragile. By using a heavier, warmer neutral foundation instead of the warmest one you would normally use, you will increase skin resistance and keep your look looking healthy.
You can also use lighter concealers and foundations under the cheek and under the nose to reduce visibility of wrinkles. Use heavier ones over them to increase thickness.
Make sure you are applying your foundation with a brush or finisher that is warm but not hot. If you have to use a colder one, let it sit on the skin for a few minutes before trying to apply it for fear of burning or freezing the skin.
How to Use Makeup: Setting is just as important as running out of makeup! If you have to stop using some product, then start using another to match what is needed! Doing both early on in practice makes it easier later on which is great for continued growth and success.
Use a dark eye shadow that matches your skin tone
Darker colors like brown or black are ideal for a person with more wrinkles. Since these colors contain more pigment, you are providing your face with more color to work with!
Another idea is to use lighter colors for the contour and lighter ones for the blush. This is very helpful in making your beauty look better without spending a lot of money doing so.
Use heavier mascara that is lengthened and a thick liquid base that can be poured over the lashes. Finally, use heavier blush that is warm toned so it looks natural.
These tips can help you create a beauty look that has more wrinkles, but do not get scared if you do not see much yet! Many people do not talk about these until they have done them and seen the results.
Apply lightweight powder and set with spray
Make the look more natural by using lighter concealers and foundations that are loose rather than the pressed type.
To set the makeup, use a heavier bronzer or contour product and a light blush to contour your face. Add some fashionable lipstick and you are set!
You can even use heavier concealers like that of the brand MAC and lighten up the look a little bit with some brightening products like an illuminating gel or powder.
These products will prevent your face from looking too soft or too wrinkly, which is what you want when going for a natural look.
Practice makes perfect!
Your first attempt at making makeup with allergies and/or clearance items may be the worst possible makeup you can make. While experimenting, do not run to the store to buy new products if you have an existing one that works for you!
Try out the new product on your own first before purchasing the most expensive option. If this does not work for you, then probably does not belong in the world of makeup. But if it does, then great! You just saved yourself some money and time!
Some products are hard to find or purchase on online sites due to brand restrictions, but there are many online sites that will ship to your home or office so you can make up your own skin if it does not work for you.
Use a crinkling eyeliner technique
Crinkling eyeliner is a very effective way to make your eyes look more wrinkled. Crinkling is a technique that comes with knowing how to use makeup to convey character.
Crinkly eyeliner comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some are pointed, while others are softer. Some are thick, while others are thinner. It does not matter!
The important part is that you use enough crinkle to get some separation between the lashline and the bottom of the eye. Then, you can lightly brush or roll it out slightly to create a wrinkled effect.
Use an old-school method using salt and water
Most people nowadays use the latest in makeup aging tools: salt and waterless shower products. While this does reduce exposure to Direct-D sunlight, it also decreases exposure to other sources of solar energy such as creams and oils.
By reducing your overall exposure to sun, you are also reducing your overall income from being exposed to sunlight. However, this may be worth it if it reduces the appearance of Age Line Marks!
Use salt and water under your eyes, on your cheeks, and all over your face. Do this for at least a week before you notice any results. Your skin may feel a little tight, but that is due to the reduced use of suppleness it is getting.
Salt pulls energy out of the body, so try sprinkling some under your eyes, on your cheeks, and all over your face to reduce any redness.
