We all want to look youthful and fresh when we walk out the door every day. A healthy lifestyle and a good skin care routine will go a long way towards helping you look younger, longer. But having a few tricks in your makeup bag can give you a radiant and rested look whenever you need it.
Here are a few time-tested tricks that can perk up your face and enhance your natural beauty.
- Curl your eyelashes and use black mascara. This simple technique will open up the look of your eyes and make you look rested, even on those days when you feel exhausted.
- Use moisturizing or slightly shimmery, sheer foundations. Foundations that completely cover your skin will actually make you look older than you are. Letting some of your skin show through will give you a more natural and youthful appearance. And a cakey, heavy, or drying formula may settle into any fine lines, accentuating their appearance. Foundations and moisturizers with a slight shimmer can help hide imperfections and lines — just make sure it’s not too glittery, or it may look artificial.
- Don’t forget your eyebrows. Light, non-defined eyebrows can make your face look older than it is. If your brows have thinned with age or plucking, or if they are very light in color, fill them in with some eye shadow that closely matches your natural brow color. This video from Shape offers some helpful hints for making the most of your brows.
- Use sheer, brighter color — not nudes and browns — on your cheeks and lips. Using soft pink tones, rather than browns, bronzers, or too-dark colors, will instantly wake up your face and give you a younger appearance. If you’re not sure what shade of pink you should use with your skin tone, this article from Allure provides some recommendations.
