12 Makeup Mistakes That Seriously Age Your Face
These simple makeup tips take years off your face.
Contouring your face
Heavy contours can give your face a dark, sunken appearance, according to Rick DiCecca, a global makeup artist for Artistry. He suggests embracing a more natural look; after all, “if women feel like themselves, they feel empowered,” he says. Try mixing a small amount of Artistry Youth Xtend® Serum Concentrate with lightweight foundation to freshen up and hydrate your skin, instead.
Neglecting your skin
While skin-care isn’t necessarily what you would consider “makeup,” it is key to looking your best at any age. Every skin-care routine should include four steps: massage a cleanser into your face and neck, gently pat a toner over the same areas, apply a treatment product that addresses a specific need (such as Artistry’s anti-aging creme Supreme LXTM), and moisturize. Repeat twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Beware of the face-washing mistakes you didn’t realize you were making, too.
