10 Ways You Can Look Younger With Makeup


  1. Moisturize! Before you use a single drop of makeup.
  2. Use a foundation with yellow undertones. Yellow gives the skin a warm glow.
  3. Use a damp sponge to apply foundation. This will prevent the makeup from looking cakey.
  4. Try a nude or natural shade for lips.
  5. Use a lengthening mascara.
  6. Use translucent powder with light diffusers. This will make your makeup glow, not heavy.
  7. Switch from black to brown eyeliner. It has a softer, natural look that’s more subtle.
  8. Apply blush to the highest point of your cheekbones. This will show off your beautiful bone structure.
  9. Fill in brows with a light eye brow pencil.
  10. Use an eyelash curler. As you age, your eyelashes begin to flatten – give them some style!
