10 Tips on How to Look Younger with Makeup
Here are the top 10 tips on how to look younger with makeup.
1. Use a Primer with SPF
Primers fill in fine lines and smooth the skin. Apply a primer with SPF before applying makeup to create smooth, glowing skin.
I like the NARS primer with SPF 50. It’s not greasy and it’s easy to apply.
2. Avoid Heavy Foundation
Thick foundations crinkle and can draw attention to fine lines. It's time to throw away any heavy foundation in your makeup drawer!
Instead, use a tinted moisturizer.
The Estee Lauder Sheer Tint Release Multi-Protection Moisturizer gets great reviews and looks flattering on women of all ages.
3. Cover Under Eye Circles
Dark circles make you look tired and worn out. A simple under-eye concealer will instantly make you look more awake and youthful.
I’m loving the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer in color Fair 110 right now.
The NARS radiant concealer also gets great reviews.
4. Brighten the Inner Corners of Your Eyes
Adding a highlighter (or concealer) to the inner corner of your eyes will make your eyes pop.
I either use the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer each day (if I’m in a rush) or use the L’Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer as a highlighter.
5. Get Defined Eyebrows
Women tend to get thinner eyebrows as they age. Get thick, defined eyebrows by using a simple brow pencil.
It’s a hidden gem, but I am in LOVE with the Billion Dollar Brows Kit on Amazon.
6. Lengthen Your Eyelashes
Long, thick eyelashes make your eyes pop and make you look youthful.
Fortunately there’s no need for expensive eyelash extensions or serums. Just use a good mascara primer!
I love the Christian Breton Eyelash Builder.
Apply it before you apply your everyday mascara and your eyelashes will look SO long and thick!
7. Use a Blush That Flatters Your Skin Tone
A little bit of warmth on the apples of your cheeks adds a healthy, youthful glow.
The NARS blush in Orgasm looks great on women with practically any color skin tone.
8. Swap Out Lipstick for a Light Pink Lip Gloss
Lip gloss makes your lips look more hydrated, whereas matte lipsticks can make your lips look bland and boring.
Use a light pink or coral lip gloss instead of dark colors and choose one that stays on all day.
I’m in love with the Revlon ColorStay Overtime in Perennial Peach. It’s under $10, easy to apply, and looks super natural.
9. Accentuate Your Eyes with Eyeliner
Eyeliner, when not overdone, makes your eyes really stand out.
Apply a black or dark brown eyeliner to the bottom of your eyes.
10. Get a Fresh Haircut
Okay, so this isn’t a makeup tip – but the right haircut and color makes the biggest difference!
Many women get shorter hair in their late 30s and 40s and stop coloring their hair.
To look younger, keep your hair around shoulder-length, get highlights, and try side-bangs. Think of Jennifer Aniston as inspiration.
If your hair is starting to get thinner, start taking a Biotin supplement each day or try a shampoo to get thicker hair.
