Makeup mistakes could be making you look older

Makeup mistakes could be making you look older

Blue eyeshadow, eyeliner, fake moles  - we've all been there. Though some trends come and go, and others should have never became popular in the first place, it's trial and error that allows most women to figure out what skin and makeup products enhance their looks and which aren't so pretty. You might think you have the knowledge to look fabulous, but what if some of your go-to tricks actually made you look older? Here are a few common beauty mistakes that could be adding years to your face:

Forgoing foundation
Sure, applying layer upon layer of cakey makeup is certain to make you look older rather than younger, but starting each day off with foundation is a must. According to Real Simple magazine, foundation can help to even your skin tone and add light and life to your overall complexion, the key is finding a product that suits your specific needs.

Using a light product like Colorescience Sheer Creme Foundation is a suitable option for all skin types as its silky formula helps to nourish the skin while brightening it. Plus, using a cream rather than a powder can help ensure the foundation is spread out evenly for a natural feel.

Visible lip liner
The '80s called, they want their lip liner back. If your kids have ever made digs about your lips, you might want to listen. Though it was once in fashion to rock bold lip liner to highlight your pout, nowadays we like to take a less-is-more approach. 

This doesn't mean you can't wear lip liner at all, in fact, the product can help create the illusion of fuller lips, and who wouldn't want that? The trick in this scenario is to learn the correct way to apply the product. 

Professional makeup artist Napoleon Perdis, offered The Oprah Magazine readers a surprising lip lining tip. 

"Apply your lipstick; then use a lip liner to trace around the edges," the makeup pro told the publication. "The liner will glide on more smoothly than it does on a bare mouth, leaving a more natural outline but still creating a barrier against bleeding."

You can also avoid the ring-around-the-lips look by selecting a liner that either matches your lipstick exactly, or is a shade lighter, offering a naturally full looking pout, rather than a makeup disaster.

Howdy Stephen Elliot. I just got a letter dated 1/19/12 from Lorelie Lee in an envelope from you. We have no idea whatsoever how I got on your list. But I'll write Lorelie back (a real letter, even), because it was pretty fucking brave of her to write that.
