Sponge over fingers
As you grow older, you will increasingly feel the need to wear your foundation a lot more regularly. If you usually apply foundation using your fingers, it’s time to invest in a good quality sponge to help you conceal the different kinds of skin issues that arise as time passes.
Highlight the inner corners
For the nights when you haven’t had enough sleep, but still need to look awake the next morning, here’s a priceless tip. After concealing your under-eye circles, add a dab of highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes. This will make you look awake and alert in an instant.
Do not skip filling your brows
Well-groomed brows act like an Instagram filter for your face, making you look at least 5 years younger. Eyebrows also soften your features and take away attention from fine lines on your face.
Mix makeup to find the right pick
Despite the variety of makeup available, finding a shade that you think looks perfect on you can pose to be quite a task. But if you mix a couple together, the result can be life-changing. And this applies to almost every makeup product that goes on your face, from foundations, lipsticks, blushes, to brow pencils.
Learn this eyeliner cheat
Even if after years of practice you have not been able to master the perfect cat eye, don’t fret. We have a really simple trick for you. Use a liquid black eyeliner to make tiny dots in between your lashes, right in the roots to create a thicker lash line. This makes your eyes pop without the effect of an obvious line.
Reduce the use of a lip balm
Sounds counterintuitive, right? But it’s true. Constantly using lip balm prevents dry skin cells from breaking free, so they build up in an uncomfortable layer on your lips. This obstructs the moisture from sinking deep into your lip. Instead, gently scrub your lips a couple times a week and don’t forget to apply that balm afterward to seal moisture in.
