We all age. It is unavoidable. Luckily, we have product.
To keep our skin young, we need to moisturise it. This is very obvious but still not everyone does it. Always put on moisturiser before you do your makeup. Your skin will be thanking you by looking younger in the future. The DYP fave and of course a classic, La Mer –
Highlight your bone structure
Good news! Women apparently lose fat in their face when they get older. That we can work with. Highlight your cheekbones with your blush along to the highest point. This will highlight your bone structure and lift up you face. One highlighter that is a staple in every make up brand is the Iconic London Strobing Stick –
Colour your lips in light tones
Not even our lips are spared from losing their definition as we age. So, when choosing a lip colour, you need to take one that adds volume to your lips. That would be light tone lipsticks like mauve or light pink. For a natural look, we recommend Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector.
Use creams instead of powders
There are many heavy powder formulas out there. Unfortunately, those are the evil foundations that actually make you look way older. Instead use creams, gels and liquids. Basically, products that do not require you to use the brush. It comes all back to moisturising you skin because your skin looks younger when hydrated. We heart Cover Fx Cream Foundation
Blush your cheeks
Putting on some warm coloured blush with a hint of rose pink (a combination that works for most skin types) will lift your face up. To do that you have to apply the blush on the apples of your cheeks. Go for a cream blush instead of a powder blush here, too. Try the Chanel Le Blush Crème De Chanel
Concealer for younger looking eyes
The older you get the worse the dark circles beneath your eyes usually get. Make sure you use a concealer that is not too dry, since these easily stay in the wrinkles. Better to go for a liquid concealer. Apply it from the bottom to the top to get the best results. Enter – Erase Paste by Benefit
Fill your brows
Of course, our brows do not get more beautiful either with the years. They thin put, especially at their ends. Fill what is left with a contouring pencil that is one tone lighter than your hair colour. If you like, you can finish up by using some brow gel. This will make you look refreshed.
