A youthful appearance makes us feel good and boosts our confidence. There are plenty of simple ways you can take years off of your appearance – if that’s your beauty goal. No, you don’t need a range of crazy pills and potions. With the right makeup, the perfect skin-care products, and the right colors, you can look and feel good at any age.
Choose lighter lipstick and fake fuller lips
Dark shades can be a bit unflattering on mature skin. Lighter shades can make you look brighter, so choose rosy red or flesh-colored shades. However, do stay away from oranges because they make your teeth appear yellow. Also, since your lips get thinner when you age, you may want to use fake fuller lips by gently overdrawing the bottom lip line and Cupid’s bow. Just use a lip liner that matches your natural lip color to make it look like your lips are naturally full. If faking fuller lips is not enough for you, and you want a more long-term solution, you can always choose to have a lip augmentation. There are two types of lip augmentation: simple filler injections and implants. Regardless of the type, lip augmentation can enhance your lips to make them look fuller, which can improve your overall appearance.
Cover-up you’re fine lines
Wrinkles and unwanted lines are two major things that will make you look older. Concealing them can be tricky because some formulas tend to sink into cracks, which only emphasize every fine line. Try finding a good concealer that does not contain too many oils so it won’t move. If needed, invest in good color correctors. Green helps you hide redness and orange cancels the blueish color under your dark circles. Sometimes, color correcting and concealing does not seem to work out. That’s why many people choose to have a facelift and injection treatments (such as Botox and Fillers) to achieve their desired youthful look.
Lift your eyes
As your skin ages, it loses its elasticity. Both the upper and lower eyelids will collect excessive skin, which causes wrinkles and bulges as well as making you look a lot older. To remove these signs of aging around your eyes, you can opt for eyelid surgery to enhance your appearance and build your confidence. But if you don’t like the idea of getting cosmetic surgery, you can fake an eyelift with make-up, such as accentuating the brows, contouring the eye, and use volumizing mascara.
Change your skincare regimen
Anti-aging products can really make you look younger. Keep your skin hydrated and youthful with products that have Hyaluronic Acid as the major ingredients, whether it’s a serum or an eye cream. Hyaluronic Acid can help you blur fine lines and wrinkles. It can also help plump your skin. Besides Hyaluronic Acid, you should also consider Vitamin A derivatives, such as retinol and retinoid. Vitamin A is one of the most important anti-aging ingredients. Use it as part of your night-time routine to encourage healthy skin cell production, even out discoloration, help unclog pores, and smooth skin. One last thing you should not forget in your skincare routine is a good sunscreen. A study suggested that daily use of sunscreen may prevent sun damage and reverse signs of aging. Therefore, the most important product in your skincare regimen should be sunscreen. Use something with SPF 25 or above, broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB), and non-fragrance sunscreen. Don’t forget to apply each product to your neck too because it is one of the first places to show aging.
