Most women have a makeup routine they follow before they step out each day. But are you on “autopilot” with your makeup routine, using the same products for years without thinking about it? It may be time to take a long, hard look at your makeup arsenal — and determine how you can use makeup to bring out the best in your features, no matter what your age.
Makeup mistake #1: Skipping the primer.
Primer is one of the best ways to give your face the best possible “canvas” for foundation. Whether you need to add moisture, fight shine, or smooth out pores and imperfections, a primer will ensure that your makeup can do its job at making you look your best. Without primer, your makeup may accentuate flaws, wear off sooner, or make you look older instead of younger. If you’re not sure what kind of primer to use, ask an aesthetician for recommendations.
Makeup mistake #2: Applying your makeup too heavily.
Many people use a hefty application of foundation to camouflage things they don’t like about their skin. But a heavy handed foundation application may make you look older. Instead, talk with an aesthetician about your skin concerns. If you have skin problems such as acne scars, wrinkles and lines, dryness, crepiness, or brown spots, there are many fast, non-invasive options available to give you great skin that you’ll be happy to show off without a lot of foundation on top.
Makeup mistake #3: Using irritating, synthetic ingredients.
Your makeup is supposed to make you look better - not exacerbate skin woes. Unfortunately, many makeups on the market today contain ingredients that can irritate or inflame sensitive skin, dry it out, make it oilier, or clog pores. How do you choose one that will benefit your skin? Look for a mineral makeup that contains natural, non-irritating ingredients. Over time, you may see your skin looking better than ever.
Mistake #4: Relying on makeup alone to make you look younger.
A younger face starts with great skin, not makeup. The best lipstick and eyeshadow can’t take years off, but many of today’s skin rejuvenation procedures can. If you’re concerned about specific signs of aging, look into options like peels, fillers, Botox®, and SkinPen®. Then, top off your glowing, younger-looking face with a makeup that will complement your natural beauty.
