Life hacks for makeup

Makeup is supposed to emphasize natural beauty, but many popular life hacks only add age. Foundation can slide into wrinkles or bumps on the skin, and rich black arrows are not suitable for overhanging eyelids, instead of a deep, saturated look, you can get the effect of tired eyes.

If you've been using the same products or following the same methods for years, it's probably time to update your daily makeup routine. The experts of Brit+Co magazine told us how to look young and toned.

Erica Taylor, a professional makeup artist with over 26 years of experience in the industry, noted that changing a proven beauty routine can be a difficult process. Makeup should suit you, and if applied correctly, it can even visually rejuvenate your skin.

Life hack 1

With age, skin can become drier and duller. Neglecting a quality exfoliation in your skincare routine can lead to makeup not going on smoothly and skin irritation. However, it is important to avoid exfoliating products with harsh formulas that can damage the skin barrier. The makeup artist advises choosing a gentle exfoliant that is perfect for daily use – it looks like a dry rice-based powder and turns into a smooth foamy texture after activation with water.

The next step is moisturizing. Serums and products containing natural oils will significantly improve the stage of skin preparation for makeup application. Apply additional moisturizer in the morning and evening. Taylor advises paying attention to products that use rosehip extracts, coenzyme Q10, and botanical extracts.

The primer should also have a moisturizing effect.

"Choose a moisturizing primer instead of a matting or silicone face primer," Taylor suggests. You can pay attention to products that contain niacinamide and hyaluronic acid for additional moisturizing and makeup retention throughout the day.

Liquid or cream foundations are better than powder or matte foundations. Liquid foundations glide on smoothly, providing an even tone and flawless natural makeup.

"Consider switching to a cream blush with a higher build to brighten and lift the cheeks," Taylor recommends.

To correct dark circles under the eyes, you probably use concealer. However, you should keep in mind that it has a rather thick creamy texture, so it can emphasize wrinkles. You should always check the texture of the product on the back of your hand before buying it. Concealers that are too light will visually add age, so you should choose products that match your skin tone or are even darker.

Life hack 5

If you have fine lines around your mouth, wearing lipstick can be a problem. Lip products with a balm-like formula are great for creating a radiant and shiny effect.
