Every year it seems there’s another line or wrinkle – or maybe every month for some of us! And applying makeup the wrong way can make you look even older.
Too many women seem to continue applying make up to their middle aged faces the same way as when they were younger, and it can be too heavy handed, drawing attention to fine lines and wrinkles.
Instead, use these 7 proven makeup tricks that will make your face and skin appear more youthful:

1. Use A Lighter Lipstick Shade
As we age, our lips naturally become thinner. And just like dark clothing slims you down, dark lipstick emphasizes the thinness of your lips.
Instead, stick with pale roses, pinks and flesh tones, in satin finishes. It’s better to avoid corals, orange, and peach; they can give a yellow tone to the teeth.

This really is a no-brainer, but we’re going to emphasize it anyway. If your skin isn’t properly hydrated, all the makeup in the world won’t help you. As soon as you wash your face, apply moisturizer before you even think of reaching for the makeup. It’s the key to a more youthful appearance.

3. Use A Light Hand With Mascara
Heavy coats of dark or colored mascara is particularly aging. Instead of black or blue mascara, use a more natural gray or brown shade. It will give you a wide-awake look that’s more natural and youthful.
4. Wear A Makeup Primer
Apply a makeup primer after moisturizing. It helps cover pores and fine lines, smoothing and providing a more consistent complexion so you look younger. It also helps makeup ‘set’ so that it lasts all day long.
5. Curl Your Lashes
Wide doe-eyes are synonymous with youth; as we age, drooping eyelids cause us to look old and tired.
You can help camouflage drooping lids by curling your eyelashes. When combined with a light mascara as mentioned above, your eyes will look more wide open and youthful.
6. Use A Bronzer For A Youthful Glow
It’s a catch-22. While we need sunlight for health and it does add a beautiful glow to the skin, the same UV rays can damage skin and make us look older.
Instead of damaging your skin in the sun, use a bronzing powder to add youthful color to your face. Lightly apply it to over the cheekbones and up to the forehead. A light sweep across the nose and chin – the highlights where the sun naturally falls – will also give you a more natural look.
7. Use A Light Foundation
Foundation is great for filling in fine lines and wrinkles to give you a more youthful look. But don’t overdo it, or your foundation will get cakey, making you look older and leathery instead.
Using a primer as mentioned above will help hide lines even better.
8. Brighten Up
Highlighting cream can help create definition and highlight the angles of your face with a youthful glow. Apply highlighting cream by starting at the brow bone and curving down in a “C-shape” towards the cheekbones. A dab on the bridge of your nose and across the bow of your lips, and you’re set!
One warning, stay away from any highlighting cream with glitter.
