Choosing a dark lipstickiStock/PeopleImages
Lips lose their fullness over time, and dark colors make them look even smaller. Mauves and pinks, on the other hand, highlight lips and give the illusion of fullness. A swipe of lip gloss will plump them up even more. If you do decide to go for a darker shade, pick a sheer formula or a stain, which aren’t as flat as a heavier finish, or dab the color on with your finger. Pick a lip liner that matches the color of your lips, rather than your lipstick, to avoid an overly dark liner that will make your lips look pursed.

Wearing the wrong color foundationiStock/powerofforever
Foundation that’s too light or dark will look dull and unnatural, not youthful and glowy. To make sure you pick the right color when you test them out in the store, dab a bit on your face, rather than your hand, which can be a different shade. The color should match yours even before it’s blended.
