A MAKEUP artist has revealed what you should stop doing if you want to look younger – and dark eyeshadow is a big no-no.
Erica Taylor took to TikTok to explain why certain products can make your face look tired and gray and how to fix the problem.
The make-up artist explained that our makeup should be adjusted as we age so that we don’t look older than we really are.
So that highlighter you used to love? It might be time to say goodbye.
One of the most important things that people forget to incorporate into their skincare routine is exfoliation.
This is a good step at any age, but essential if you want a youthful glow as you age.
“If you don’t exfoliate, your makeup won’t turn out great and your skincare won’t penetrate,” she explained.
The second step to looking younger is using the right foundation, not one designed for oily, young skin.
Even if your skin is still oily, you need something moisturizing, explained Erica.
The color of your foundation can also make or break your look.
“If your foundation is too light, your skin will look gray, tired, and dusty, and that’s not good.”
“Either a game [your skin tone] or go a little deeper,” she said.
This “warms up” your skin and makes you look brighter and younger.
You should also avoid old makeup trends such as: B. Thing eyebrows – this is a big sign that you are older.
Avoid brows that are too thin and arched and instead opt for something more natural and straight.
Try applying blush and bronzer slightly higher on your face to create the illusion of a lift.
When it comes to your eyes, thinner eyeliner always looks better than thicker eyeliner, as there tends to be less visible space on your eyelids as you age.
Avoid gray eyeshadow tones and opt for warmer colors instead.
Erica’s simple changes mean you can still look young and wear makeup simply by adjusting the way you apply certain products.
