1. Moisture Right Before Makeup Application
Apply daily facial moisturizer with SPF 15 or higher right before applying foundation and concealer. This trick helps foundation and concealer go on more smooth and can also give your skin a natural-looking dewy finish.
2. Try a Silicone Based Primer
Foundation primer is a must-have for women with fine lines and wrinkles, but choosing the right one can be difficult. Most foundation primers contain silicone, but not all are equally effective at temporarily filling in wrinkles and lines. Try a foundation primer that is silicone based for the best results. If you have sensitive or oily skin, you may want to try an herbal or organic foundation primer instead. if you need more help, click here to contact me today for a free consultation.
3. Avoid Cream Foundations and Concealers
Cream foundations and concealers tend to have a heavy, waxy consistency that settles into fine lines, wrinkles, and pores, ultimately making them look more prominent. Many women use cream consistencies because they provide more coverage than liquid products. However, liquid foundations and concealers do not amplify imperfections.
4. Use a Patting Motion
When applying liquid or cream products such as foundation, concealer, blush and eyeshadow, use a gentle and light patting motion instead of rubbing the product into your skin. A rubbing motion pushes cosmetics deeper into your pores than patting does and causes it to wear off sooner. Patting cosmetics onto the skin can also hide lines and wrinkles more effectively, since you are not pushing cosmetics deep into them.
5. Focus on Color Correction
As the skin ages, discoloration can occur. Many women have an uneven skin tone and attempt to hide it with foundation and concealer alone. In order to conceal redness, sallow skin, and dark circles, you need the right color correctors. For example, yellow and peach color correctors camouflage purple and blue caused by bruising and dark circles, while lavender color correctors neutralize sallow skin. Pat on color correcting products after foundation primer but before foundation and concealer for the best results. You may find that you require much less foundation and concealer when you use color correctors.
6. Add Warmth
Adding warmth to your skin instantly creates a healthy look. Choose a bronzer or powder that is no more than two shades darker than your skin tone. Using a stiff slanted brush, apply the powder along your jawline, the bridge of your nose, and the outer edges of your forehead for a natural-looking contoured effect.
7. Make Your Skin Glow
Glowing skin is radiant and instantly makes you look younger, but isn’t always easy to achieve. For the most natural-looking results, use a highlighting or luminizing liquid that has extra-fine shimmer in it. Avoid products with chunky shimmer or glitter. Dab a few drops along your cheekbones, under your eyebrows, and above your upper lip.
