As we all yearn to age gracefully sometimes it’s not in our cards. From genetics to environmental factors, signs of aging can sometimes be more aggressive on certain people.
There are however certain tricks women can learn to hide the unwanted signs of aging. Signature Salon & Spa wants to share some helpful makeup tips older women can benefit from.
Dark circles can age your whole appearance, make your eyes look even more tired than they already are and unfortunately get worse as you get older. Below are some pointers to help brighten your eye area.
Do you usually put your concealer right under your eyes to hide the circles? We recommend a new way. Rather than applying the concealer in a swoop following the length of your eyes, try applying your concealer by drawing an upside-down triangle under the eyes and then blend. Another helpful trick is to gently use concealer below and above your eyebrows for added illumination. These simple tricks make a big impact and will leave you feeling amazed at the difference.
Every woman wants full eyelashes and it’s easy to get them without resorting to harsh chemicals. Curl your lashes, put on your mascara, and be sure your eyelashes are separated, not clumpy. Eyelashes clumped together not only look unsightly, they prevent lashes from looking fuller and longer. This makeup trick will give your lashes more definition.
If your eyelashes are thin, sparse or simply nonexistent, there are a number of lash extension products available. Whether you choose store bought or professional extensions, fuller, bigger lashes are key to a more youthful appearance.
Contouring your makeup will not only enhance your features - it can hide your flaws! Contouring draws the eye away from unfavorable areas, allowing your best features to shine. If done correctly contouring can thin features, sculpt and define. If sculpted cheekbones, a thinner jawline or a smaller nose done without plastic surgery sounds appealing we highly advise giving contouring a try. When applied correctly, contouring around your main features can help achieve the look you’ve always wanted.
Once you’ve contoured all you desired it’s important to blend as much as you can. The more blended your makeup is the more natural it will look. And it’s always best to finish with a blush. Add your favorite blush to the apples of your cheeks blending towards your temples.
