EYES You don’t need to follow the trends in makeup to stay hip. Say no to heavy eyeliner, glittery, too matte or too bright eye shadows, clumpy mascara and single ledges of false eyelashes. Heavy makeup magnifies imperfections.
Keep your make up palate simple with flattering shades of beige, brow, khaki or gray. For longer lashes, use a few small clusters of fake lashes and fill in the gabs or use Latisse to naturally grow your own thicker, darker longer lashes.
Dramatic measures: Blepharosplasty for sagging eyelids, Botox and fillers are a great way to look more youthful with longer lasting results.
FACE Nothing ages you like too thick, cakey, matte foundation, looking too tan, too obvious concealer and streaks of blush. The young trick is to look like you’re not wearing any foundation. For imperfect skin, a makeup primer is a must. It smoothes wrinkles and pores so that makeup doesn’t settle into the lines. Mineral makeup foundations make you skin look more luminescent and dewy, creating a more youthful glow. See a makeup artist to get the perfect color match.
Use blush to look like you’re blushing and stay away from anything too dark.
Dramatic measures: Banish age sports and tighten skin with ILP Photorejuvenation, Chemical Peels and MicroCurrent Facial Toning.
LIPS Dark lipstick, obvious lip liner, overly matte lipstick and obviously fake plumped lips are instant agers. Purge your lipstick collection of all dark shades and matching lip liners. Bright colors emphasize dark circles under your eyes, make your lips look thinner, and emphasize fine lines around the mouth. Instead, go for pink in one or two shades lighter than your natural lip color. Use a gloss to help lips catch he light and look fuller. Bonus: Try a gloss with a lip plumper such as LipFusion XL
Dramatic Measures: Avoid overly fake plumped lips and use fillers around the mouth to soften nasolabial folds and naturally plump lips. Botox can also be used to banish frowns and drooping jowls.
HAIR Avoid helmet head, too-short bangs, too long hair parted down the middle, an updo and color that’s too dark, too solid, gray or ashy blonde streaks. Add instant youth with soft bangs, which camouflage imperfections and draw attention directly toward your eyes. When it comes to hair color, it’s not about looking natural. It’s about looking fabulous. Seek a professional to create the perfect shade to enhance your skin and overall beauty.
NAILS Save the dark colors for your toes and avoid long fake nails. If you’re happy drawing attention to your hands, then go for the bold colors. If you want to elongate fingers, got for short, well manicure nails polished in neutral colors or sheer pink.
