Some makeup mistakes can actually make you look older than you are. Do these tricks and reverse the clock with your makeup products.


You've heard it before — you're as young as you feel, so make sure you look it. Some people get so used to one beauty and makeup routine and repeat it year after year. But our skin changes as we age, so we should learn how to adapt to these changes.

From finding the proper foundation and concealer for mature skin to the color of the eyeliner you use — we've rounded up ten simple age-defying tips worth trying.

Highlight the Specific Areas


Using highlight everywhere gives just the opposite effect as the luminous effect you wish when applying a highlighter. You want to provide a natural glow, right? So, use the product on the brow bone, bridge of the nose, and along the cheekbones.

Curl Your Lashes


Truth must be told — as we age, it isn't only our skin that changes, other parts of our bodies too, such as our lashes. They flatten as we get older, so if you're 35 years old or more, you should be curling your lashes.

Choose the Right Mascara


As we just mentioned above, the lashes flatten and get thinner with the years. They can't support the extra weight, so using heavy mascara will flatten them even more. The best option is to choose mascaras that will lengthen your lashes and have thin wands.

Switch To Brown Eyeliner


If you've been using black eyeliner since college and to you, using black eyeliner is like brushing your teeth, maybe it's time to tweak it a bit. Deep brown has the impact of black eyeliners, and it's more subtle and sophisticated.

Change Your Lip Color


Please don't hate me because I'm telling you to break up with your favorite black eyeliner and lipstick combo. Changes are good things, so don't be afraid to change your beloved lipstick. If you're used to neutral, try red. If you're used to red, try brown or pink.

Get a Lipstick Brush


The definition of the lip's border softens with age. That means extra lipstick will migrate. Instead of applying your lipstick straight from the stick, start using a brush specifically to lipsticks. Dab on the center of your lips, and then spread it to the corners.

Choose a Light Brow Pencil


For those who are used to filling their brows with darker shades, it's time to switch to a shade lighter than your natural color­ing. For instance, if you're blonde, go one shade darker, and so on. A light hue will make your brows look more natural.

Use Warmer Foundations


Skin grows more pallid with age, so if you're wearing a matchy-matchy foundation — like we've also been told to do, it might leave you looking pasty. Instead, you can go for a slightly warmer tone or mix your matchy-matchy hue with one shade darker.

Moisturize (More) Your Skin


It might sound like a no-brainer to you, but keep on moisturizing your skin as your life depends on it! Keep in your makeup bag gels, creams, and products that generally don't require the use of a brush. The more hydrated, the younger your skin will look.

Use a Sponge


A damp sponge is the best way to apply foundation and to cover up imperfections. You don't need an extra layer, just the right way to apply them. Quickly wet your sponge under the faucet, squeeze out the water, and put a dab of foundation on the back of your hand, then apply it evenly to your face.
