I was always attracted to bright makeup. For some reason, I was sure that my attractiveness depended on the abundance of decorative cosmetics. Basically, this opinion is inherent in young girls, but I was sure of it until the age of 25.
Walking with friends in the park, I drew attention to this pattern: the young peers were most often acquainted with the girlfriends. And solid uncles approached me ten years older. Some girlfriends were jealous of me, and at that time I felt like an old maid.
Thank you mom who opened my eyes to what is happening. As an experiment, she offered me to be my makeup artist. I took this idea with suspicion, but who tried to argue with my mother? 🙂 At that time I did not leave the house without fat black arrows, several layers of mascara and bright pink lip gloss. Awful sight, right?
My mother painted much more restrained: light pearly shades, matte lipsticks of pastel colors, thin arrows, let down by a brown pencil. Mom used her cosmetic bag for my makeup.
Do not believe, looking at myself in the mirror, I saw a completely different person! My image immediately became more tender. In appearance, I dropped five years, or even more. Since then, I have drastically changed my attitude to makeup. I want to share my principles of anti-aging makeup with you.
The tanning effect often adds to the woman’s age. In addition, it fits only a few. If you want to look younger, it is better to pick up tonal resources a quarter tone lighter than your skin tone. This makeup will look more natural, without adding extra years.
I saw this in person. By nature I have a rather fair skin. Once I was visited by the idea of fix – to choose a concealer with a tan effect. I came to the store, with the help of a consultant I picked up a shade. Arriving home, the first thing started to test the purchase. The result was not bad, but I looked older.
Do not get too carried away with powder. On the face, it should be invisible. Putting powder, carefully blend the border. Often I see women who have a mask on their face, the application contour is so noticeable. Always pay attention to this.
As I was convinced from my own experience, the thicker the arrows, the older their owner looks. The arrow should be thin and neat, slightly rising and expanding at the outer corner of the eye. And never surround the eye completely! This technique visually reduces the eyes.
I noticed that the matte shadows of warm shades visually make a woman younger. Apparently, this is due to the fact that they hide small wrinkles. And shadows with sparkles or nacre of cold tones, on the contrary, emphasize them.
Very often, women prefer a thick line around the contour of the lips. In addition, for some reason it is believed that the darker it is, the better. In fact, everything is exactly the opposite. The thicker and darker the contour, the thinner the lips appear. And the woman looks stricter and older.
Choose a contour pencil to match lipstick or discard it altogether. To look younger, it is better to choose lipsticks of warm pastel shades, avoiding red, cherry or burgundy tones.
These makeup rules help me not to look older. I hope that my advice will be useful to you too!
