When a new beauty trick trends, you start to see it everywhere, and that’s exactly what happened with contouring. The point of contouring is to define your face shape a little more. It usually helps out with bringing out your cheekbones and giving shape to your nose.
However, if you overdo it, it will look like you’re wearing way too much makeup, which is missing the point. You don’t want to look like your foundation is wearing you. You are the master here! There are many youtube videos that cater to mature skin, and they will all say that less is more.
Lining Your Waterline
Some unfortunate ladies are still out there lining their lash line with a Kohl black liner. This practice may look better on people from specific cultures and ethnicities, such as Indians, but not everyone can pull it off. In fact, depending on the shape of your eye, lining the waterline will not only make your eyes look smaller but will age you.
It will also make your eye look weighed down by the product. When applying and removing it on a regular basis, it can also speed up the process of wrinkling around your eyes. Nobody wants that to happen, right?
Glittery Eye Makeup
Glittery shadows are straight from the '90s and should probably stay that way. Glimmering makeup only minimizes contours, and while it has its place (in editorial fashion articles and music festivals), it can also exaggerate wrinkles and fine lines. These are things you normally don't want to happen as they make you look older.
That doesn't mean you should throw all of your sparkly makeup away. One way you can still use it, if you want, is to dab a little sparkle at the inner corner of your eyes — this famous makeup trick will draw attention to your eyes and make them look bigger and illuminated.
There is nothing wrong with trying to create some volume in your hair. The trick is to make sure the volume is set in the right places. And by "right places" we mean most of it needs to be styled at the top, closer to your roots.
Bottom-heavy hair has a tendency to make your face look droopy and unbalanced as it clashes with the shape of your face, which is usually narrower around the chin. Adding a touch of all-over volume is a better way to lift your look and give your face a little youthful fullness. It will also just make you look more youthful and keep you up-to-date with your hair.
Too Much Blush
Wearing excessive blush can actually make you appear older rather than enhancing your natural beauty. When applied too heavily or in the wrong shade, blush can settle into fine lines and wrinkles, emphasizing them and drawing attention to the signs of aging. It can also make your skin look unnatural and cakey, accentuating texture and imperfections.
Overly rosy cheeks can create a clownish effect, undermining a youthful and fresh appearance. Additionally, using a heavy hand with blush can throw off the balance of your overall makeup, making it look dated and unflattering. Opting for a subtle and natural blush application is key to maintaining a youthful and radiant complexion.
