As we know, fashion trends come and go. Sometimes certain shapes, cuts, or colors can make a comeback, but designers, magazines, and trendsetters always have some kind of innovation up their fashionable sleeves. When you stick to one style for many years and refuse to give new things a go, it contributes to an older, outdated look.
That being said, if the items and garments in your closet make you feel happy and attractive, none of the current trends really matter. If you are feeling comfortable in your own skin, people are going to pick up on that and nothing else would matter.
Finishing With Powder
We all know that youthful skin glows by reflecting light. This is why the dominant makeup look in recent years is dewy. Powders do the opposite by preventing light from reflecting and causing creases in your skin to become more obvious.
Maybe you've been applying powder as a finishing touch since your college years. Well, it's high time to stop now. That being said, for individuals with oily skin, using a powder might feel necessary to set the makeup. While you can do that, we would recommend using a setting spray instead, which will not weigh heavy on your skin.
Mascara on Your Lower Lashes
While wearing mascara on your upper lashes is a pretty standard procedure, you don't want to do that on your lower lashes too. Putting mascara on your lower lashes can make your eyes appear droopier than they are and even draw unwanted attention to those pesky dark circles.
The whole look makes your eye look heavy and sunken, which is a look nobody wants. Instead, you should focus on your upper lashes by curling them and layering on a volumizing mascara from their roots through the ends for an uplifting effect. This should result in an eye that looks bigger and more impressive.
Not Using Highlighter
Highlighter has been around for a hot minute, so if you aren't already on board this train, it's time to hop on. The quickest way to fake younger-looking skin is by highlighting, a.k.a. strobing. If you're not highlighting, you're not making the most out of this fabulous makeup trick.
The application is pretty easy — using your favorite highlighter (in liquid, powder, or stick formation), just dab a tiny little bit of it on the higher, more illuminated parts of your face. Those include your cheekbones, your browbones, the tip of your nose, and your upper forehead. Easy peasy and with great results!
This is probably the most important tip, and it's also one of the easiest. First, remember you need to hydrate from the inside first and then the outside. This means that the best thing you can do for your skin is to drink plenty of water. After that, you can prioritize applying moisturizers daily.
When it comes to your cosmetics, keep an eye open for hydrating products. Skin that's taken care of will feel soft and also look it! When you make sure your skin is hydrated, you help it wrinkle less and appear a lot more youthful. Now, pour yourself a glass.
