Attaining a more youthful appearance is something almost every woman worries about and seeks once she has hit the age where fine lines, wrinkles, and dull, tired skin begins to creep in. It can be extremely depressing once a woman finds that she has aged – and sometimes, it seems to creep up overnight. It can be downright terrifying to see your first fine line or wrinkle, and many women don’t handle that very well. Lionesse is here to provide you with a few different tips to help you attain the beauty and youth you desire – all while keeping it simple, and easy for any woman to do.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Moisturizing your face as you age is key. Moisturizer helps the skin to appear more full and supple. The same moisturizer you used when you were 20 is not going to work the same for your skin care needs now that you’re in your 30’s. You need to choose a moisturizer that best works with your skin type, whether it be dry skin, combination skin, oily skin, or normal skin. There are brands which offer added anti-aging ingredients as well as SPF protection from the sun, and you should always opt for SPF inclusion whenever possible to protect your skin from the harsh effects of the sun’s rays – which can cause you to look older once your skin has become damaged.
Draw Attention to Your Best Features
After applying foundation, concealer, and highlighter, you will want to take a few minutes to accentuate your best features. No matter what they might be – whether eyes, lips, or nose, you want to draw attention to that area to avoid having people look in the general direction of your aging areas. If you love your eyes, learning some new eyeshadow tricks can be your saving grace when it comes to taking the focus off your wrinkles. The same goes for your lips –if you have fine lines around your mouth or laugh lines, you can play your lips up and draw the attention away from the outside of your mouth, and direct it to your mouth instead. Learning contouring tricks can be very helpful in this department as well.
Remove Makeup Nightly
We at Lionesse cannot stress this enough – you need to remove your cosmetic products each and every single night before you hit the pillow. Science shows that for every night you go to bed with makeup on your face, you age your face by two days! Who needs – or wants – that? Nobody, that’s who. Ensure you take at least one minute to use some good makeup removing wipes every night to get all of the day’s built up makeup off, and cleanse your face thoroughly. This is of the utmost importance!
Use the Highlighter to Your Advantage
Highlighter is very similar to concealer, but it actually puts emphasis on and brightens specific targeted areas to provide contour, and allows your features to pop. When applied right, it can take the focus off of, for example – wrinkles, and can provide a nicer focal point as you can accent your cheek bones and eye area with it. It helps you to appear younger due to the fact that it gives you brighter, more revitalized looking skin.
Concealer is Your Best Friend
One of the best tips to appear younger and more youthful is to always use concealer when applying your cosmetics every day. Target the areas which have fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, freckles, and dark circles. As a general rule, use concealer around the eye area, inner corners of the eyes, under the bottom lip, and across the cheeks after applying foundation and blend well to offer you a much younger, more youthful experience. You will be shocked at how well concealer can hide the signs of aging – that is, if you invest in a quality concealer product.
