Cosmetics are a vital part of most women lives. But did you know that some cosmetics can actually help you look younger and more vibrant looking, while helping you hide some of those flaws? Here are the cosmetics we all must add to our cosmetic case as we begin to grow older.
For the last year or so, we all have been hearing the word primer. No, we aren’t talking about wall paint. We are talking about primer that we use on our faces. Professional makeup artists have been using this stuff for years, to hide the flaws of those beautiful faces we see on our television sets. Now we can use it, too.
Why do we want to use it? We want to use it because it can help fill in those little lines. It can help even out our skin tone and it can even help our makeup to last longer.
Put it on before you put on your foundation and apply a little more on those areas that need a bit more coverage.
We want to wear this because it can make our lashes look longer. Choose a waxy pencil or a gel liner. Place it directly into the root area of your lashes and blend or smudge it a bit.
No, blush isn’t just for young girls. Older women need to wear it, too. Why? As we age, the pigment of our skin becomes lighter. What color should we use? Try this test.
Pinch you cheek while it is clean. What color do you see? This is the color you want to strive to find.
Wear just enough to add a bit of color to your cheek and choose a creamy type, a powder or a combo type.
Lipsticks add color to your entire face. It can even make you look more energized when you are tired.
Skip the real dark shades and really shiny ones. Yet, have fun with your color or colors. Consider a more matte formula or a semi-gloss one.
You might even want a lip color that has an added moisturizer in it.
Remember no matter what your age is, cosmetics should be fun, while serving a purpose. Keep this in mind while you are shopping for your next perfect lip color or blush.
