As you age, you may start to notice fine lines and wrinkles starting to appear around the eyes, lips, and forehead. But with a few simple tips, you can disguise these imperfections with makeup.
1. Prep your face properly.
Before putting any makeup on in the morning make sure you have properly prepped your skin. First, wash your face with a gentle cleanser and then moisturize. A moisturizing lotion serves to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and make your skin look more supple.
2. Choose an age appropriate foundation.
Choose an age-defying foundation that contains ample moisturizers to apply to areas of the face around the eyes and lips that require more coverage. Some foundations also contain SPF, which can protect your skin from any additional fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Apply with a concealer brush.
Add a dab of foundation to the back of your hand and then apply to your face using a concealer brush. This way you can ensure your makeup is lightly applied and doesn’t look caked on. Too much makeup settles into fine lines and wrinkles and actually highlights places that you’re trying to hide. This is especially true underneath the eyes where makeup can gather.
These tips can help turn back the clock.
