Adding 15 years! Five makeup mistakes that age you and emphasize your imperfections

Improperly applied makeup can only harm your appearance, emphasize flaws, and even add extra years. Makeup artists consider too dense, heavy makeup to be the main mistake - people will definitely notice the excess of decorative cosmetics, especially on aging skin.

OBOZREVATEL decided to figure out what makeup mistakes age you. These techniques (and habits) should be avoided if you want to improve, not worsen, the situation.

1. Makeup without preliminary moisturizing the skin

Moisturizing and nourishing is essential even for oily skin, the main thing is to choose serums, creams, and other products that are right for you. Applying foundation to unprepared skin can emphasize peeling, dryness, wrinkles, and pores. You shouldn't neglect nighttime cosmetics either - they will make your skin look radiant and more elastic in the morning.

Moisturizing the skin is an important step in skincare and makeup application

2. Thick layer of foundation and poor blending

Too much foundation will not help to hide imperfections, but will only make them worse. The "mask" on the face will look especially ugly if the color of the tone is not chosen correctly, and the borders are abruptly cut off without shading. Makeup artists recommend applying a little foundation to the neck to make the transition smooth.

Too dark and too light foundation will ruin your makeup

3. Large spots of concealer

Concealer has a denser texture than foundation and a lighter shade. Nowadays, the use of concealer for light contouring, face-lifting effect is at the peak of trends, but too much of this product, especially under the eyes, is a taboo in the beauty industry. You don't want noticeable light spots on your face, and concealer can also get into folds and fine lines and make them more visible.

Concealer can emphasize bumps and wrinkles

4. Mascara in several layers with clumps

Professional makeup artists do not recommend applying too much mascara to your lashes. If your mascara starts to crumble, clump, or stick together, it's time to replace it. The key to rejuvenating makeup is naturalness and invisibility.

Mascara should not be too noticeable, i.e., stick together the eyelashes and apply in clumps

5. Too much highlighter and powder

Highlighter gives the face a beautiful glow and grooming, while powder sets the makeup and removes excess shine. However, makeup artists recommend applying highlighter exclusively to even skin areas. Excessive shine will insidiously accentuate wrinkles and other facial imperfections. Powder in large quantities will make the face look lifeless, with the effect of parchment, and under artificial lighting, some of its types can suddenly "light up", like Angelina Jolie at the premiere of the movie "The Normal Heart" in New York in 2014.

Be careful with powder and highlighter
