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!
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 Changing Your Style
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 When you stick to one style for many years and refuse to give new things a go, it contributes to an older, outdated look.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.
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.
Not Using Collagen
There's a good reason they call collagen creams the “fountain of youth.” As we age, our collagen stores deplete. Since collagen is what gives our skin elasticity, losing it means that our skin can get wrinklier. So to make the most of it and maintain your skin's elasticity, we'd recommend collagen products, whether they come in powder form for your drinks or in creams for your skin.
Research-based collagen benefits are said to include skin, hair, and nail health, joint health, and gut health. All these are functions that start deteriorating when we grow older so it's good to keep your collagen levels up however you can!
