Make up mishaps that make you look older!

Wearing foundation that does not match your skin colour!

Soooo…many women end up looking they are wearing a mask because their foundation does not match their face and neck. When you go too light it makes you look washed out and lifeless, which can add years to your face. On the other hand if you go too dark, you are adding a dullness and heaviness that is just as ageing.
Foundation should flow smoothly in colour from your face down to your décolletage.

Choosing a lipstick that is too dark!

As you age, you lose definition in your lips, so to appear more youthful, you’ll want to wear a lipstick that adds fullness. Dark colours do the opposite! They make your lips look smaller, less plump, and less highlighted. So choose something moisturising in a mauve or pink tone, even add a touch of  gloss on top. That shiny finish will  add a youthful plumpness.

Only lining the bottom of your eyes with liner!

Many women only line the bottom of their eyes for a quick and easy fix. This is a big no no! Doing this will only drag your features down and make your eyes appear smaller and add age to that face! Applying eyeliner on the top as well will open your eyes up and brighten your face. But be sure not to make the liner too thick as this can also be ageing!

Applying the wrong shade of blush too low on your face!

So many women do not wear a youthful shade of blush. They choose a brown colour because they think they are keeping it natural and adding definition, but it ends up looking muddy and dull. Other women often choose a blush that is too soft in colour or choose to wear no blush at all!  That will only wash you out and add 10 years to that face!
The idea of blush is to add that natural ‘blood’ pink back into the cheeks!

Not adding colour and defining your brows!

As you age (or from over plucking), your eyebrows get thinner and just don’t grow back. Not filling them in with a pencil or brow powder can leave you looking washed out older, were as that fuller brow will lift your face and define your features. Bringing back those brows will give you that youthful appearance!
