6 Genius Makeup Tricks That Shave Years Off Your Look featured image

Makeup should be a friend, not a foe, and as we age there are certain ways makeup can age your look. Here are easy ways to use makeup to your advantage and knock a couple years off in the process.

Use Yellow-Toned Foundation
A foundation with a yellow base instead of a pink one will help cancel out any redness in your skin.

Fill In Your Brows
As women age and lose estrogen in their bodies, they tend to lose eyebrow hairs on the outer corners, creating a shortened look. Use a good brow pencil to feather color onto the tails of your brows to give your face an instantly lifted look.

Use a Light-Reflecting Concealer
As skin gets thinner around your eyes, you want to move away from using a heavy concealer. The best concealer for aging eyes is one that is lightweight and deflects light, like Chantecaille’s Le Camouflage Stylo ($49). 

Switch to Brown Eyeliner
Oftentimes, black eyeliner can look too harsh and severe. Use a chocolate-brown pencil instead for a soft and beautiful look.

Apply Peach Blush to the Apples of Your Cheeks
Keeping product on the apples of your cheeks instead of under your cheekbones helps to give a youthful appearance to your face. (Find the right blush for you here.)

Choose a Lip Color a Shade Darker Than Your Natural Lip Color 
A dark lip can sometimes make you look older, so find shades that are closer to your natural lip color and offer a bit of shine.
