Brighten Under Eyes with Concealer Applied the Right Way
Under eye area is another area of concern while making effort to have more young looking appearance. The skin of under-eye-area is very delicate that easily show attrition from stress and skin abuse. To make the eye area brighter, use a little concealer directly under your eye. This will cover the under-eye circles.
The concealer you use should be one shade lighter than the foundation you have used; be sure to blend it well in the eye area. Use a tint one shade lighter than your foundation and blend it well. Use your ring finger to apply the concealer in subtle under-eye area as it is the one that exerts least pressure thus doesn’t damage your delicate under-eye skin. .
Dust a little powder, after putting on the concealer and follow it up with application of light colored eyeshadow over the entire lid. Apply a small amount of shadow in the corner of your eye and under your lower eyelashes as well. This will brighten up your eyes and make them look youthful. Finally apply a little mascara.
Youthful and Fresh Lips & Cheeks
The haste of looking younger leads the women to pile on the red lipstick! Remember, it doesn’t look apt for everyday wear. To have a youthful appearance, go for a dewy lipstick-gloss combination. Most brands offer this type of lipstick. It will tint your lips slightly, without going matte and the shiny or “dew” of this lipstick instantly adds youth to your face.
Speaking to cheeks, for getting a natural and youthful look, always use a natural and light blush. Put a bit on to the cheekbones and go!
