Do you use eyeliner only on your bottom lid? Are you using a foundation that doesn't really work for you? See five makeup tips that are making you look older.
Is light eye shadow better?
We tend to think that lighter is better, but that isn't always the case with makeup, so the simple answer is no—not when you're trying to hide the signs of too many late nights or not enough sleep.
Celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge, who has worked with Vanessa Redgrave and Sandra Bullock has shared a number of makeup tips to look younger in the Daily Mail. Choose the right foundation and blusher and, if you're older, don't put blusher on the apple of your cheeks but brush up and out. Other tips include don't use powder puffs and how to restore definition to your eyebrows.
And don't forget to clean it all away before you go to sleep at night. “This is extremely important,” says complexion expert Maxine Warsh. “I can't emphasize it enough. Otherwise your makeup settles and clogs your pores and that's the least of it. I recommend the WARSH Cloth (of course!) to remove makeup and grime with water only--and we're still offering free shipping when you order over $60!”
