Aging is something that just about everybody dreads, with many investing heavily in ways to help them look years younger than their age. However, with the right combination of skin care techniques and makeup application, you will be able to instantly give your complexion a much more youthful radiance.

 

Moisturizer Before Foundation

If you are in a rush, it can be all-too-tempting to simply slap on some foundation before heading out the door, but doing this without any moisturizer underneath will mean that your skin will have to draw out all of the moisture from your foundation in order to stay hydrated. This will then magnify any wrinkles, dark patches, and any other blemishes you were trying to cover up, making moisturizer before foundation an absolutely essential combination.

 

The Perfect Pout

As the body ages, the lips begin to lose volume and start to thin out, and, with the mouth often being the focal point of the face, this can immediately make you look much older than you really are. Lip care begins with the delicate skin on lips, as this needs to be exfoliated on a regular basis to keep lips smooth and boost circulation. When it comes to the lipstick that you use, it is best choosing one that contains anti-aging ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, which will keep your lips hydrated and plump. In terms of colors, dark shades of lipstick will only make your face appear washed out, but shades that feature a vibrant pop of color can really brighten up the face.

 

A Safe, Healthy Glow

There is no denying the anti-aging appeal that a bronzed healthy glow can have, but soaking up the sun's rays will only damage your skin. However, there are many ways in which you can fake a bronzed tan, with a gradual self-tanner being one of the most popular, as the color from this builds up slowly, minimizing streaks and looking extremely natural. On your face, a cream blush can really help to lift your complexion, and will blend well over any fine lines you may have.

 

Eye Cream Before Eye Makeup

The eyes change quite significantly with age, with eyelids become much more hooded, and the skin experiencing an onset of wrinkles. This can often make applying eye makeup quite the challenge, but using an eye cream first will make the task much easier. An eye cream will help to plump up the skin around the eyes, while reducing any dark circles or areas of puffiness, meaning that your eye makeup will be able to glide on much easier, and sit naturally on your skin.

 

Everybody has their own go-to anti-aging tricks, but using the right combination of skin care and makeup will definitely benefit just about everyone. By understanding how both of these can complement each other, you will be able to protect and enhance your skin, giving it a naturally youthful glow.
