You Could Be Making Makeup Mistakes That Are Aging You

There are no real rules to makeup. Your goal should be to bring your best face forward and to have fun experimenting. You do not have to settle for one specific look, but there are some things that you may be doing that could actually be aging you faster. Here is our list of things you should remove from your beauty routine.
Using the wrong shade of blush
Blush is always fun to use, but if you choose a color that is too dark or too bright, it could lead to disaster. A soft peach or rose tint can add a youthful look to your face, but a color that is too dark will make you look tired.
Not following a skincare routine
Dry, oily, tired, and cracked skin is the worst canvas to apply makeup on. After you wash your face and use some toner, do not forget to put on a moisturizer that contains an SPF.
Using shimmer eyeshadows over the crease
We really should be thankful for the creation of matte transition shades that frame our eyes perfectly. One must be careful with shimmery eyeshadows because they accentuate creases and wrinkles. The best thing to do is to apply your shimmer at the inner corners of your eyes and the center of the lids.
Not blending enough
Your foundation could look like a second skin when blended in properly. For that airbrushed look, use a damp beauty blender and blend until your arm hurts. There is no such thing as over-blending.
Wearing concealer that's too light
A concealer that is too light will make you look tired. Light colors bring attention to any and all flaws in your skin. If you have wrinkles, you should moisturize and use a concealer that is just a shade or two lighter than what you are covering up.
