Makeup Hacks that make you look 10 years younger
Invest in an Anti-Aging Moisturizer
Expert Tested Anti-Aging Moisturizers that workThe most important part of your makeup routine, is the skin! The better you care for your skin, the less makeup you will will have to wear. Having clear skin is the key to looking younger! Have you ever seen celebrities that look amazing in their 60's? Christie Brinkley is the perfect example! I can only hope I look that good when I'm that age. You can tell that a priority of hers was taking care of her skin. Well I can tell you it all starts with the right moisturizer! Prepping the skin is the most important part and you should use an anti-aging moisturizer every morning and night. Although every morning you should use a moisturizer that contains SPF in it.

Use a lightweight tinted moisturizer or lightweight foundationIf you are going for a more flawless, natural look, than you will definitely want to use a tinted moisturizer. The moisturizer won't settle in your wrinkles and appear to make you look more tired and "cakey." No matter how much you blend the foundation out, if it's too thick there is no smoothing it out wrinkles and fine lines unlike a moisturizer. I use a tinted moisturizer in the summer when my skin is clear and already has color to it. Since I use mine during the summer months it is always smart to have an SPF in it so you are protecting your skin during the day.

Use a thin concealerThe same goes for concealer as foundation. The thicker the formula the more it will settle into wrinkles and fine lines and appear to make you look older. I personally like to use a more water based concealer as it's easier to work with and you can get it really where you want it. I use this a lot on my mother-of-the-brides and they seem to love it!

Avoid using a harsh eyelinerInstead of using a harsh eyeliner, consider using a brown, white on your waterline, blue, or a violet! Honestly, all of those color pigments go on beautiful you just have to find the right formula for you. Brown is always a safe alternative and looks great with all skin types. Also consider a new technique for your eyeliner. Whether you're more of a cat-eyed girl, or you like a harsh liner you can create a whole new eye shape just by the way you do your eyeliner.

Investing in blushMany over do the blush and actually can make their face look more round than it normally is. One swipe of a light pink blush would look beautiful on anyone. I would recommend to stay away from any with glitter, or sparkles as it may make your pores look bigger than they are.

Avoid mascara on your lower lash lineAdding macara on your lower lash line can make you look like you have dark bags under your eyes. Many times it enhances the bags and makes your eyes appear much smaller and more tired.

Avoid filling eyebrows too darkFilling your brows in too much or too dark can make it appear that you have no brows, and can make your face look much smaller than what it is. Eyebrows frame your face and you don't want them to over power your face. Your brows should not be the first thing people look at.
