5 expert-approved makeup tips to make you look younger

When it comes to anti-ageing, most people recommend steps to either prevent or reduce the signs of ageing. But what if you want to look younger right away? Thankfully, there’s makeup and a few tricks to use it in the right way to make you look more youthful, instantly.

So if you’re tired of waiting for months to see results and want to take years off your face, we might have just the right makeup tips for you.


Embrace the brown eyeliner

Opt for a lip gloss

We can’t imagine a world without black eyeliner, can we? But what if we told you your favourite black eyeliner is making you look older? It casts a shadow close to your eyes and accentuates dark circles. To brighten your eyes replace it with a chocolaty brown eyeliner such as the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal - Ash Brown and notice the difference.


Go nude

Opt for a lip gloss

No! It’s not what you’re thinking. Invest in a nude eye pencil and apply it to your waterline; this will instantly brighten your eyes. One swipe of a nude eye pencil can take all the attention away from those dark circles, under-eye bags and tiredness, making you look younger and gorgeous in seconds. Avoid using white as it can look unnatural, and opt for a shade that is closer to your skin tone.


Shape your brows

Opt for a lip gloss

Who knew looking younger might be as simple as filling in your brows correctly. Perfectly filled, natural-looking brows soften your facial features and make you look younger. The trick is to not aim for a defined arch, instead of diminish the arch by using a soft eyebrow pencil such as the Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil.


Play up the lashes

Opt for a lip gloss

Make your lashes the focus point of your face by using a volumizing mascara such as the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara – Black to make your eyes appear bigger and youthful. While using this trick, you can skip eyeliner and eyeshadow completely because that can make your eyes look heavy. On special occasions give falsies a try; you won’t be disappointed. 


Opt for a lip gloss

Opt for a lip gloss

Don’t go for fillers just yet. Fuller and supple lips can make you look younger and the easiest way to achieve this is by applying a clear lip gloss. Go for softer colours such as the Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss - Rose Shine to make your lips look plumper. Avoid matte and drying lipsticks.
