Many people believe that the older they get, the more makeup they need to apply. This is counterproductive. A good rule of thumb is “less is more.”
To ensure we are using makeup to our advantage, here are four mistakes that can make us look older and how we can avoid them.
1. Using Too Much Foundation
Try to avoid buying full coverage foundations which will sink into the folds of your skin and emphasize fine lines and wrinkles.
When you apply a large amount on foundation, your complexion will look extremely dull and your facial makeup will look caked on.
The more skin you can see, the better. Applying too much foundation can also dry out your skin making it look rough and flaky.
2. Applying Too Many Powder Products
As we age, heavy finishing powders can emphasize wrinkles and accentuate our pores. Layering on powder, bronzer, blush, and highlighter over our foundation can even settle into our fine lines and make them look more pronounced, especially under the eyes. Instead, opt for a sheer translucent powder and cream bronzers to ensure your skin maintains that youthful and healthy glow.
3. Skipping Primer
One of the most important steps to any makeup routine is primer. After sunscreen, a healthy and hydrating facial primer should be put directly onto your skin. Primer can instantly make your skin appear younger by filling in fine lines and wrinkles. This allows your makeup to go on more smoothly. Incorporating a vitamin C primer into your routine such as InviCible can help promote healthy collagen, tighten the skin and even lighten abnormal dark pigmentation.
4. Neglecting Your Lashes And Eyebrows
Having full eyelashes and eyebrows is always in. Thinning brows and lashes can make you look much older. Make sure you fill in your thinning eyebrows and eyelashes to promote a youthful and healthy look. Don’t forget to curl your eyelashes to make your eyes look bigger and more awake.
InviCible is a safe and effective primer that can be safely added to your skincare routine. Not only does this product work well as a makeup base, but it also works hard to correct facial imperfections and balance skin tone while you go about your day! Get yours here today!
