Sure, skincare is a very important part to looking 10 years younger, but that’s not to say your makeup doesn’t play a huge role too. There are plenty of do’s and don’ts when it comes to doing your makeup but personal preference should always be taken into consideration.
With that said, a universal makeup tip for women who want to look 10 years younger deals with a product you may consider an afterthought, but it makes a world of difference when applied correctly–or incorrectly, in this case.
The secret to taking years off your look is a lot simpler than you may realize. It’s all about putting the age-old motto into action, “Less is more.” Despite what you may think, layering on the setting powder will not help keep your makeup in place any better, but it will help add years to your appearance.
Overdoing it on powder leaves your skin looking dry and cakey. When your makeup is too dry, it has a tendency to settle into fine lines and cracks, emphasising wrinkles. Mattifying powder should only be used on the oily T-zone area of your face if needed. Otherwise, allowing a little bit of a healthy shine to shine through can help you look more youthful.
