For some women, makeup is essential in everyday life. For others, it is only necessary in special moments. But on many occasions , makeup errors give our skin an aged appearance .

What are the mistakes we make when putting on makeup?

Makeup often plays the role of enhancing the eyes, lips, and favorable points on the face. However, if used incorrectly or in an exaggerated way, they give the skin an aged look. So, check out the eight big mistakes that make our skin look aged and also know some tips to avoid them in your daily skincare ritual.

Creamy foundation makeup mistakes

When used in excess, this type of makeup can accumulate in the expression lines present in mature skin, overloading the facial appearance and giving an aged appearance. Therefore, in these cases, make-up bases with thinner layers should be used .

The same goes for very light concealers, which give the impression that the eye area has more wrinkles , this is another very common makeup mistake.

Excess compact powder

In addition to leaving the face artificial , the exaggeration of the pressed powder highlights wrinkles, especially around the eyes. The best option in these cases is translucent powder, which should only be applied to the nose and forehead to reduce shine, thus helping to normalize the skin.

Dark eyeliner

Older women have a need to choose a lighter eyeliner because dark colors leave an aging look and feel heavier. It is advisable to use the brown pencil for those who like dark colors and do not want to abandon their style. On the other hand, people who have dark circles also have to be careful not to run the product near the lower lashes.

Bright shadow

The use of bright shadow is another enemy of mature skin, as they help reveal wrinkles and droopy eyelids . It is recommended only to use it if it is combined with opaque tones, in the outer corner of the eye.

Creamy lipstick

Over time, the “V” formed above the lips disappears and gives rise to the formation of wrinkles, especially in the upper part and the corner of the mouth. Therefore, when using a very creamy lipstick , you run the risk of spilling the cosmetic and painting the lines of the mouth.

Thin or very marked eyebrows

The too dark eyebrows can leave a heavy look , so you never paint with black pencil, instead of this the best option is always the shadow. When removing hairs from this region, the watchword is to avoid fine features, the thinner the eyebrow, the greater the possibility of having an aged appearance. Therefore, you should always keep your drawing natural and only make minor corrections if they are too thick.

Do not touch up

Throughout the day, especially when the weather is warm, makeup tends to fade across the face as well as deep wrinkles , making them noticeable. To avoid this problem, the coverage must be retouched to ensure that the skin always looks beautiful.
