Makeup can make you look great, but if you do it wrong, it can make you look older. Here are some common mistakes and how to fix them:

  1. Concealer: Don’t put too much under your eyes. Use a shade that matches your skin and apply it only where you need it.
  2. Eyebrows: If you’re under 35, shape your eyebrows with wax. If you’re over 40, keep them soft and natural.
  3. Eyeliner: Using black liner inside your lower eyelid can make your eyes look smaller. Use softer colors on top instead.
  4. Skin Prep: Dry skin can make makeup look patchy. Exfoliate and use moisturizers with ingredients like hyaluronic acid to keep your skin hydrated.
  5. Lipstick: Pick colors that match your skin tone and won’t make your teeth look yellow.
  6. Matte Lipstick: Matte lipstick can dry out your lips and make them look older. Use hydrating lip products instead.
  7. Eyeshadow: Sparkly eyeshadow can settle into wrinkles. Use matte shadows for a softer look.
  8. Dirty Brushes: Dirty brushes can cause breakouts and patchy makeup. Wash them regularly.
  9. Foundation: Matte foundations can accentuate wrinkles. Use cream or serum foundations for a smoother look.
  10. Blush: Too much blush can look fake. Use a fluffy brush and apply it lightly.
  11. Expired Mascara: Old mascara can make your lashes clumpy. Replace it every few months.

Avoiding these mistakes will help you look your best without adding years to your appearance.
