When it comes to maintaining your youthful appearance, the essential recommendation would be to follow a skincare regimen. A variety of lotions, potions, and serums would be included, but anything from nail care to your hair color can have an impact on your appearance. We asked leading industry experts–from red carpet makeup artists to facialists to celebrities–for their tried-and-true techniques for capturing a youthful glow. Here are the results. Here’s what the leading experts in the beauty industry recommend to help you look younger and more vibrant.
Contour your Lips
A contour can visually restore a little volume to thinning lips caused by aging.
Having Trouble Choosing a Foundation
Yellow undertones are the best choice. With a yellow foundation, especially one with gold undertones, women over 40 tend to look healthier and younger. I find it very effective at hiding the effects of aging in general.
Give Up the Powder
Our skin was oily in our 20’s, so we used powder to prevent shine and allow liquid to set. The powder will nevertheless eventually settle into creases and little wrinkles, no matter how well it is applied. Use a setting spray instead of powder.
Lip Balm Equals Brow Gel
As we age, shaping eyebrows becomes harder and harder. It’s unnecessary to use a different product if you have a colorless lip balm because lip balms make it easier to shape your eyebrows. Furthermore, you can grow your eyebrows by using lip balms containing vitamin E, which has growth-promoting properties.
Before Leaving, Test the Lighting at your Home
The makeup looks good in the bathroom, but hours later, at the office, you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and wonder, “How did I leave the house like this?” Next time, go to the balcony and check your makeup with a handheld mirror.
Blur, Blur, Blur
It’s best to choose primers that promise a “blurring” effect because a blurred base is meant to hide imperfections in the same way a photo editor would. It should be applied before the foundation.
Use the Right Amount of Perfume in all the right Spots
Perfume should be applied to pulse points, but not just on our wrists. You can also apply it behind your ears, inside your knees, and inside your elbows. However, don’t spray perfume directly on your hair. Instead, spray the fragrance on your brush and comb.
With a Toothbrush, you can Add Volume and Texture to Hairstyles
People of all ages can wear braids, but they may look thin and limp at times. This problem can be solved with a toothbrush. A toothbrush should be gently rubbed along the grain of each link.
Try a Silicone Blender
In my opinion, absorbent sponges are out of style. A new wave of application involves silicone sponges. As the sponge doesn’t soak up makeup and oil, it’s more sanitary and healthier for your skin. It’s also easy to clean. You’re saving money, aren’t you?
To Prevent Accelerated Aging, Start Applying more SPF
The time has come to a stop protecting just your cheeks, chin, and nose with products. It would help if you also had protection for your lips, eyes, and neck.
Use Eyeshadow on your Scalp
A thinning hairline is caused by age-related hair loss. You need not worry, though, because eyeshadow can help. If you’re wearing eyeshadow, first make sure its color matches your hair. With an eyeshadow brush, apply the product to your scalp.
If you’re over 40 and find it difficult to apply eyeliner due to changing contours of your eye, this tip is helpful. Apply brown eyeliner to your upper lash line. A lighter shade of eyebrows is a good choice. Cleanse and refresh your appearance.
Hide a Grown-out Manicure with Glitter Accents
How long has your manicure last? Have your nails grown out noticeably? This problem can be solved thanks to a new trend. If your nail is blank, cover it with glitter polish. Exactly what I needed!
Give Eyes an Instant Lift
To apply the cream shadow or concealer stick under the eyebrow, use a neutral shade. By boosting your eyebrows, you will appear younger and more awake.
