MSN published 'Is your make-up ageing you' and after reading a few tips I was thinking how many times Ive noticed this. Some people are under the false illusion that to look younger more makeup is needed to cover up and disguise however this couldnt be further from the truth. Less is definately more and a paired down, flawless look can knock years off of a made up look. Here are some of the best tips from the article.
Take care with False Eyelashes, too heavy and they can make your eyes droop
If you have good skin less is more when it comes to foundation, use the product to enhance rather than cover up
'Earthy tones and rosy, peachy colours would all imitate a youthful complexion then you can add accents, such as bright lip, false lashes and strong eye colour - but not all together.' - Celebrity make-up artist, Sarah Reygate (@sarah8leesworld)
Over 40? replace black liners with charcoal greys for a softer look with warm lips and cheeks
Use a cream blusher (for skin which is not oily) to give a dewy look on cheeks
Remember keep it simple especially with mature skin, even if you love make-up you can still take time applying products carefully to acheive a natural fresh look. Leighton Meester is a perfect example of how to acheive this.
