One feature we all know about time is that it is ever moving. It is basically impossible to stop time and so with each passing day, month and year we get a bit older. But you don’t always have to look at your age as this decision rests in your hands.
Here are 13 tricks that will make you look way younger than your age and leave you engrossed in self-admiration the next time your stare into a mirror.
As small as they may look, eyebrows can drastically change your appearance. Overdone and sculpted eyebrows usually make you look older and hence should be something to avoid. Instead of using a pencil to shape your eyebrows, go for an eyebrow shadow, as it makes them appear more natural.
You should also take care of thinning eyebrows. These days, bushy eyebrows are associated with youthfulness and good health. You can also try achieving a form of integration or match between your eyebrows and your hair color. Let the color tones between the two be similar or at least closely matched.
12-Creamy textures in makeup
The appearance of your skin plays a major role in making you younger. For this reason, you should opt for creamy textures like rouges and highlighters instead of powder textures.
This is because powder textures may show patches in your face and also reveal the wrinkles you strive to hide.
This gives you an older appearance unlike when you use creamy textures.
Light foundations make you appear more radiant and therefore younger.
Your skin will also look more hydrated when you apply light liquid textures. Applying a thick layer of foundation however may end up projecting your wrinkles, making you look old.
To appear younger, you should use gleaming and light rouge. Depending on the color of the type of skin you have, shades such as pink or peach can be great to use.
You should avoid dark shades as they make your cheekbones prominent which in turn makes you seem older.
9-A brown pencil instead of a black one
To look younger, you need to be vibrant and that can be seen through your eyes. A ring of black eyeliner around your eyes makes you look fatigued. And we all know that looking tired makes anyone seem old.
In addition, the black eyeliner seems to hide your eyes, denying them a chance to show your beauty.
You can solve this by using a dark blue or brown pencil instead. Such colors blend well with your eyes and make yellow whites and reddening less revealing.
8-Maximum length and super volume of the eyelashes
Taking time to make your eyelashes can really wipe that old age look in your eyes. You might apply every type of make up on your face, but without making your eyelashes, you will still look older.
This is because your eyelashes make your eyes appear wider. There are some amazing tricks to making your eyelashes more beautiful and they include; using a lash primer, lash curler, volumizing mascara formulas and even conditioning.
7-Hair volume and shine
You should try avoiding hairstyles which are faded and lack volume. This usually makes you appear old since there is that reduced essence of vibrancy. You should instead try hairstyles with more volume.
You can do this through foam, and then use an oil mask to finish it up.
Try to keep the length of the hair slightly above your shoulders but under your chin.
6-Lightening of certain facial areas
This helps to create a more uniform look to your face. When you have dark patches on your face, some pigment spots and circles right below your eyes, you appear old. To look younger, you can apply a slightly lighter toned concealer to your eye and lip corners. Do the same to your chin and outer nostril parts.
As you’ve seen throughout our article, we have a goal to give that lively appearance to your eyes. This cannot be achieved if you have a lowered upper eyelid as it makes you look fatigued.
To look younger, try applying the light shadows near your lashes and as you go down the eyelid use a darker one.
4-“Wet lips” effect lipstick
Volume and light seem to make you look way younger and the same goes for your lipstick. When you use matte lipstick, the volume of your lips appears reduced and your skin will also look dehydrated. Furthermore, this makes your wrinkles more prominent and visible.
To make yourself appear younger, use lipsticks that possess that wet lips effect. This will not only increase your lipstick volume, but also reduce the visibility of your wrinkles.
3-Suntan and paleness balance
If you have a mature skin and dark hair, you should try a new hair color.
The dark color will not blend well with your skin as it will show your age. Instead, try a lighter tone than your natural hair.
According to the CEO of Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, Dr. Alan Hirsch, those women who use perfume containing some essence of grapefruit or body milk with an identical fragrance appear to others as 10 years younger than their actual age.
For that reason, we suggest you try such perfumes.
