Almost everyone would like to retain their youthful appearance for as long as possible, but sometimes simple mistakes can leave you looking older. Here are a few mistakes to avoid.
Wearing Too Much Makeup
Foundation can even out your skin tone and hide blemishes that make you look older, but wearing too much foundation means that the extra powder can settle into the lines and wrinkles on your face and make them stand out. Aim for translucent foundation that gives you even tone without caking your face with makeup.
Too much eye makeup can make your eyes look smaller and make you look tired and older. Colored eye shadow may be fun for special occasions, but in many cases it can make you look dated. Opt for neutral tones and highlight the inner corners of your eyes to look more awake and energetic. If you apply eyeliner, consider switching to brown liner, which gives a softer, less heavy look. You may also want to consider leaving the lower lash line bare since lining the lower line can sometimes make your eyes look smaller.
Wearing The Wrong Color Of Lipstick
As you get older your lips get thinner. Your lipstick can highlight this fact, or help you create a softer fuller look. In general, darker shades of lipstick will make your lips look thinner while nude and light pink shades of lipstick will make them look fuller. In some cases, lip gloss may be the best option since it gives your lips a full, moist, healthy look.
Following Fashion Trends Too Closely
Fashion trends can be fun, but you should primarily choose clothes based on what is best for your body type. Look for clothes that never go out of style and make you feel confident.
Dyeing Your Hair The Wrong Color
Dark, monochrome shades of hair can make you look older and bleached out hair can leave your skin looking dull. Many people can benefit from subtle highlights around the face that bring warmth to the skin. As you get older, you may want to dye your hair more frequently, but try to keep the color natural looking and make sure it has dimension. Your stylist can help you find a color that suits you best.
