Skin, Wrinkles and Make-Up (2)
In addition, things like skin tone, hair color and eye color can lighten (or darken, but usually it's
lighten) over time, which naturally means that your make-up colors should change as well. The foundation, eye, cheek and lip colors that
looked great on you at 25 may be too dark at 40 or 50, and in fact, foundation that is too dark for your skin tone will emphasize every
line and wrinkle. This is counter productive to the purpose of using make-up. Where possible, always test your cosmetics first before buying them.
As a general rule, when you get older, you should focus on softer shades of flattering colors. That
shade of cherry red lipstick that was drop dead gorgeous on you in your younger days will only make you look dead if you try wearing it
years later. Instead, try a dusty rose or rosy shade of pink, and when it comes to eye and cheek colors, think neutral or soft colors
as well. For the eyes especially, avoid dark eye-shadow and bright or multi-color effects. Finally, as you finish your make-up
application, use a translucent powder to prevent shine and soften the overall appearance. This will further soften the appearance of wrinkles for a more youthful look.
All in all, what we learn here is that the best way to look younger is to take good care of your skin
through cleansing, diet, and avoiding harmful activities. By doing this, and by choosing and using cosmetics wisely, you can keep yourself
looking much younger than you really are.
