Makeup can bolster our self-confidence by highlighting our best facial features and making our skin look well-nourished. But, have you ever noticed that sometimes it can actually make you appear older? None of us is safe from choosing the wrong makeup strategies on occasion!
To help you avoid them, we at buzviral have compiled a list of ten of the most common mistakes that can add years to your appearance!
1. Applying too much concealer
In our desire to create a perfect matte effect, many of us make the mistake of applying too much concealer. If you select the wrong color and put on too thick a layer, you’ll end up highlighting your wrinkles and making your face look aged. To avoid this, top makeup artists recommend steering clear of thick foundations. Instead, choose fluid ones containing luminous particles — they’ll make your skin look healthy and natural without overloading it.
2. Overusing mascara on the lower lashes
Using mascara to touch up those lower lashes and accentuate the edges of the eyes can give your gaze extra expressiveness. On the other hand, putting too much mascara on your lashes will shift everyone’s attention to the wrinkles around your eyes. No matter how small those wrinkles are — thick mascara will make them stand out!
3. Selecting the wrong lipstick tone
There’s no question about it — lipstick can do wonders to your image! This season, don’t be afraid to experiment with rich, saturated colors. But, don’t forget — if your lips are naturally narrow, you should avoid using dark-toned lipsticks. Dark colors are likely to make your lips look even thinner.
If you want your lips to appear fuller, lipstick can be of help, as well — all you need to do is overdraw your natural lip line!
4. Applying dark eyeshadows the wrong way
Take care not to apply shadows over the whole lid area — this will make you look visibly older! The right thing to do is to only dab the outer corners of your eyes.
