Makeup is a beautiful tool that allows you to enhance natural features or change the appearance of your skin. Fortunately, makeup is much less expensive and dangerous than surgical procedures for age-defying results. Whether you are trying to enhance your natural beauty, erase imperfections, or help your skin appear younger, makeup is an essential tool for all types of self-expression and confidence-boosting.
When using beauty products for age-defying effects, makeup is not the only essential tool in your arsenal. Following the proper skincare routine before applying makeup and after you take it off enhances your makeup looks and natural bare face.
Essential Skin Care Prep
Skin care is important, and your makeup will be smooth and flawless by maintaining the best regimen for your skin type. An essential skincare prep before applying any makeup is hydration. When applied without adequate hydration, some products, especially powder-based ones, dry out the skin and have the opposite of age-defying makeup effects.
Keep Your Face Looking Young
Cakey dry makeup will only enhance fine lines and wrinkles. Setting a base for your makeup with a thick moisturizer will ensure it goes on smoothly and hides signs of aging.
A product like this Anti-Aging Moisturizer is perfect as it is a collagen-rich hydrating face cream that instantly lifts the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
For those needing a product that nourishes and repairs skin, this Age-Reversing Collagen Therapy Cream is moisture rich and infused with essential nutrients, algae extracts, and amino acids that improve the skin and provide it with protection for a radiant, hydrated complexion.
Eye Bags and Wrinkles
The skin around the eyes is very delicate and typically sees signs of aging sooner than other areas of the face. So, using skincare products that prevent and repair signs of aging is essential. Eye serums and creams with collagen-boosting peptides provide firming effects that reduce the appearance of fine lines like crow’s feet.
Using products with peptides and vitamins that regenerate, repair, and protect the skin promote long-lasting moisture retention that strengthens the skin’s natural barrier.
The Instant Firming Serum is a lightweight product that reduces wrinkles and bags around the eyes by boosting collagen production and leaving the skin plump, lifted, and smoother. This Tripeptide Collagen Eye Repair is a highly concentrated product that helps repair signs of aging while hydrating and nourishing the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
We make these skincare products with natural ingredients, essential vitamins, and nutrients that repair the skin. Implementing clean skincare products like these provides skin with proactive care that does not clog pores or use abrasive ingredients that are not good for it.
Apply however much makeup you are comfortable with after establishing a base. For more mature skin, it is important to remember that less is more because too much makeup will cake up and settle into lines and wrinkles.
Primer and Foundation
An essential first step is a primer that helps the makeup go on smoothly and last throughout the day. This Face Primer that minimizes fine lines is the perfect start to any age-defying makeup routine. Following the same hydration goals of the skincare applied before the makeup, you want to use products like this Anti-Aging Foundation that have a dewy finish, not matte.
After applying your base primer and foundation, contouring is a highly effective makeup trick for a more youthful, age-defying look. This trick will sculpt the face and enhance defining features like the cheekbones and jawline. The products used for this technique should be two or three shades darker than your natural skin tone.
Accomplish contouring by using a product like a Compact Bronzer for a sunkissed glow. To contour your face, apply the bronzer under the cheekbones, on the jawline, and on the outer edges of the forehead. An angled makeup brush is the best tool for using contour that is powder based. You can apply and blend with a damp makeup sponge for cream or liquid contouring products.
Highlight Your Features
Once you have sculpted and enhanced the definition of your natural features, you can sparingly add a Glowing Highlighter using a fan brush for a youthful glow on the high points of your face. A shimmery highlighter will further enhance the lifting effects of contouring and should complement your skin tone. Those with fair skin tones should use a pearl-colored shade, while darker skin tones should use a golden hue.
Moisturize and Hydrate the Skin
The last step of any makeup routine should be a Hydrating Setting Spray for a weightless finish that helps prevent makeup from melting, fading, or settling into fine lines. A setting spray will lock in your age-defying makeup for all-day youthful radiance.
Relish in Your Skincare Routine
When taken care of and adequately nourished, your skin is a delicate surface that will reward you with a glowing complexion and age-defying results that keep you looking younger for longer. Plenty of tricks and tips delay the effects of aging on the skin or give a youthful look without going under the knife.
When you implement clean skincare and makeup products, there is no need for expensive and dangerous plastic surgeries or injections. Your natural complexion and features are gorgeous with or without makeup, but a confidence boost now and then does not hurt. When you need that boost, or if you enjoy makeup, using natural ingredients is essential, and your skin will thank you.
