Makeup for aging skin was never so important as it is now, mainly because of two reasons. One you have started showing signs of aging and two every other advertisement in the print and electronic media showcases aging products which reminds you of your condition. You certainly cannot avert aging but you can conceal those signs which are making you look more than the age you would want yourself to.
Here Are Some Tricks To Curb Those Aging Signals.
Clean your face of any dirt, stains or marks and nourish it with the best moisturizer for aging skin. Apply a sun protecting cream aka sunscreen. This should be followed by a makeup primer. Primer covers fine lines and wrinkles that are screaming out your age to everyone. Choose a silicone base primer, it is the best when it comes to filling uneven skin texture and fine lines.
The Main Artifact Concealer
All your life you may have been keeping this one cosmetic away from your vanity but now, this is the most important of all. A little dab of concealer can hide those red marks and veins on your face and neck. But beware, always pick a concealer that suits your skin texture and blend it well with your fingers.
Gone are the days of your youth. Accept it. The best makeup for mature skin includes foundation. Take hold of that brush or whatever you like and apply it on the face. An even finish is what you should aim at, to look flawless. Take a light moisturizer rich foundation.
One More Stroke Of Concealer Will Seal it
Sounds crazy. Isn’t it? But this time grab a concealer that reflects light. You can vanish the puffy eyes and the darkness around in that place by making some dots and blending it nicely and gently.
A dewy look is what will finish the whole makeup serenade. Take that highlighter (only liquid) and blend it finely into your cheekbones contouring it along the nose ridges. This highlighter contains light reflecting particles giving your skin a beautiful glow.
Add Some Color To Your Cheeks
You may want to stay away from this, but a blusher is what will make you stand out. Oh! this makes you blush naturally. Nevertheless, apply cream blush to your cheeks. I suggest cream blush because it moisturizes your skin keeping it soft and smooth and doesn’t dry up making those wrinkles visible, prominently.
Final Touch With The Powder
Now you must set in all the ingredients you have so confidingly applied on your face. Grab reflective powder. This is the only powder you should use. Hold your powder brush and dust a little amount of it all over the face. This lends a chiseled look besides setting in the foundation properly. If you like, you can apply a bronzing product to your face.
A good eye makeup can take the attention away from your wrinkles. Always choose matt eye shadow in place of shimmer. The latter intensifies fine lines and draws attention to unwanted skin condition. Use neutral colors only.
Don’t let your lip color highlight the fine lines around your mouth. Choose lip cosmetics wisely. Use a color stay lip liner that matches your lip color. Finish it with gloss. This will keep the color in its place.
