Most times when you add make-up to the face, it just ages everyone, makeup sinks into lines, dark contouring can add more depth that take away from a rounder, youthful appearance....so I'm gonna give you some make-up tips to add some fountain of youth to your face!
Here's my Make-Up Tutorial for how to look as youthful and dewy as possible, BABY FACE SPRAY, not sold anywhere ha ha ha:
TIP #1. GO EASY ON THE CONTOURING
A little contouring can add depth and dimension, but too crazy and you add 5 years to your face. Contouring can add full roundness, but most "how to contour" images I see everywhere, just make someone look aged and a little crazy! If you are going to contour add some highlight to emphasize roundness too!
TIP #2. APPLY A GOOD FOUNDATION & CONCEALER:
Avoid foundations that aren't going for a "non-oily" look, those kinds will dry the skin out too much and give you a more "wrinkle and fine line" look! Cover up under eye circles and the eyelids, this will make you look less red and veiny, and more like baby-face perfection!
TIP #3. GO EASY ON THE POWDER
Only powder areas that are oily, like the nose, forehead, chin and the eyelids to give an "oil-free" zone to apply eyeshadow, or it will just settle into the creases. Powdering the entire face can give a cake-y, dry look that will exaggerate fine lines and wrinkles everywhere!
TIP#4. ADD SOME PINK!
Pink hues give a youthful, glowy appearance to the face and eyes. Add a soft light pink-pear shimmer to the eyes for a bright-eyes look, and don't worry it won't LOOK pink, it will just draw the eye in a different way. Pink on the cheeks always look more youthful than any other shade you can use!
MY PERSONAL FAVORITE: The Tarte Cheek Stain in Blushing Bride It's a cream cheek stain so that always makes the cheeks look more dewy, than a dry powder blush alone, and this shade is so pretty I just want to eat it!
YOUTHFUL TIP #5. Darken Up Those Brows Baby!
Just filling in the brows, will give a more youthful frame to your face. As we age, our eyebrows lighten and thin and eventually turn grey, so the darker your brows, the younger you'll look! WARNING: for those looking to take off 20 years, black eyebrows won't do the trick! ha ha ha Always go for a shade that matched the deepest tones of your hair (if you have colored hair, just go with what the natural shade of your hair, or for blondes 1-2 shades darker than you hair)
WHAT I USED IN THE VIDEO: Tarte Amazonian Waterproof Eyebrow Mouse in Taupe applied with a good synthetic fiber, angled brush (*you can even get good and cheap ones at the art & craft supply store)
TIP #6. LIGHTEN UP THE LIPS
Dark colored lips add drama and a little bit of lip-maturity! ha ha For a younger looking kisser, go with a nude-rose-pink colored lip, and a light pink gloss or lip color will make the lips look more youthful and plump!
MY LIP FAVS: Too Faced Perfect Pink Lip Liner, Urban Decay Lip Liner in Naked and Urban Decay Lip Liner in Native (it's a super light nude pink, I use it as a lip color too!)
TIP #7. SKIP THE SMOKEY EYE & GO FOR A DOE-EYED WING LINER:
Smokey eyes, add a sultry look to the face, which isn't really youthful. A black winged liner on the top lashline, really gives an innocent, yet glamourous look, think Audrey Hepburn- fresh, youthful, yet classic and beautiful!
TIP #8. PASS ON ADDING LINER OF SHADOW TO THE LOWER LASH LINE:
Avoiding the desire to darken the lower lashline, will give a "eyelift" illusion to your eyes and draw the eyes upwards.
Now you're ready to look like "the cutest little baby face"!!
