All of us make such beauty blunders at some point, but are unaware of it. Well do not worry, we are here for you, keep scrolling and take a look at some very common makeup mistakes that end up making you look older.
#1. Applying a thick layer of foundation
If you put on foundation, layer after layer to hide those fine lines believing that it will make you look prettier, then wait, you are making a mistake here. Excessive foundation unfortunately makes you appear older. The extra foundation nicely settles into the lines and attracts more attention and gives you an aged appearance.
Another most important point to remember is to never get your foundation base too light. If you go in for a shade lighter than your natural skin tone, then there is a possibility that the foundation would settle around the fine lines, in turn exaggerating them. Try to go for a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone if you do not want people to quiz about your age.
#2. Skipping primer
Primer, as the name says, should never be skipped as it gives your face a smooth and silky texture by filling all those lines and helps your makeup stay o. Always opt for a cream or liquid primer as the powder can give your skin a saggy look.
#3. Wearing dark mascara and eyeliner on the lower lashes and lids
Using a dark pencil on the lower lids or wearing dark mascara on the lower lashes will bring out crow feet and dark under-eye circles; making your eye look smaller. You should always opt for a light, soft pencil rather than liquid liners, which can be quite heavy on your skin and waterline.
#4. Coating the lips in dark shades
Applying a very dark or harsh shade of lip colour may make your lips appear thinner than they are, but in return this numbers to your face's age. Even a dark lip liner (which is out of fashion by the way) can destroy your appearance. Read more on news.yahoo.
