Makeup is something that can make or break your day, depending on the way you put it. On one hand it can boost your self-confidence if applied correctly, and on the other hand can make you look older if done the wrong way.

Here are some tips that will come in handy the next time you apply makeup:

Choose your foundation under natural light

Choosing your foundation under artificial light can give you wrong results, which in turn can make you look older. Go to the store with bare skin, without your regular foundation on. This will give you the best results.

The better way to apply mascara

Mascaras can lift your look up by notches, but it can also make your eyelashes look clumpy. Use the right amount to avoid that. Applying too much mascara on your lower lashes can also make you look older, with the attention being shifted to the wrinkles under your eyes.

Apply concealer the right way

Applying too much concealer can make your skin look cakey, by shifting the focus to those fine wrinkles and accentuating them. The best way to avoid this is by using a perfect amount of concealer, and avoiding foundation formulas that are too thick.

Use dark eyeshadows this way

Dark eyeshadows are used for a smokey look, but they can also make you look older if you use it all over your eyelid. The right way to use a dark eyeshadow is to put it towards the corner of your lids, and blending it with a lighter tone.

Choosing a lipstick shade

Lipsticks are a key to achieving an amazing look and using richer tones are in vogue right now. However, do not go with just any shade. Verify the undertone of your skin, and match it with the undertone of your lipstick– warm, cool or neutral.
