Makeup Tricks That Instantly Make You Look Younger

Taking care of your skin, body, and mind helps
you look and feel younger. But along with drinking lots of water and
skipping the fries, a little makeup can help you nail that youthful glow, regardless of
your age. Try these tips from the experts, and get to
living your best life! Skip the surgery There’s no need to go under the knife to discover
the fountain of youth. “Well, I uh… I had bad plastic surgery. Should’ve known this doctor was a quack. His office was in like a warehouse.” Celebrity plastic surgeon, Dr. Michelle Yagoda,
recommends non-surgical skin treatments, saying, “…You can achieve a younger look and complexion
through less drastic but also more temporary non-surgical means, such as facial peels,
injectables, or laser treatments.” These treatments may not be permanent, but
they’re often more affordable and offer a more natural way to achieve a younger appearance. Bat those lashes It may be a cliché, but your eyes are the
window to your soul. And playing up your lashes is key to looking
younger. Avon celebrity makeup artist, Kelsey Deenihan,
knows it only takes a little lengthening mascara for megawatt effect. She says, “Making your lashes the main attraction of
your look makes your eyes appear bigger and more youthful without needing to use liner
or shadow, which can make the eye look heavy.” Our lashes get thinner as we age, which can
make us look older. Simply curl them and coat them in a few layers
of mascara, and you’ll be raking in the compliments in no time. “Is any part of you real? Are your lashes even real?” “What! Oh, they’re real!” “They’re beautiful. Can I stay? OK.” Powder play Lead makeup artist at Complexions Spa for
Beauty and Wellness, Natalie Dekermendjian, suggests using cream formulas rather than
powders, which can settle into lines. However, if it’s powder your prefer, she says, “Use a light hand to avoid emphasizing fine
lines and wrinkles. A simple trick is to tap off excess powder
from the brush before applying to your face.” When it comes to blush, makeup artist Kasey
Adam Spickard, recommends cream blushes (in peaches and pinks) for glowy skin. “When you are putting on your makeup, it’s
like you’re an artist. But instead of painting on a canvas, you’re
painting your face.” Hello, highlighter Highlighter can be tricky since it can call
attention to fine lines. But Deenihan says you just have to apply it
properly, to enjoy all of its youthful benefits. She explains, “Young skin has a natural radiant glow to
it. You can fake it with a bit of highlighter
by dabbing it onto your cheekbones and the inner corners of your eyelids with your fingers.” Trending toward classic “The light concealing cream goes on first. Then you blend, and blend, and blend. Blending is the secret. Mm-hmm.” According to celeb makeup artist Min Min Ma,
if you skip the trends, and keep things classic with your makeup, you’ll never go wrong. She says, “For daytime makeup, stick to a bronzy look
or a natural complexion, with a simple eyeliner flick. For dramatic looks, go with a classic red
lips or smoky eye.” Need some inspo? Classic beauty icons like Marilyn Monroe,
Audrey Hepburn, Diana Ross, or Iman nailed this look every time. Start with your skin “Let’s do a makeover.” “No.” Good skin is always in! And investing in top notch skin care is critical. Ma noted there are plenty of ways to do right
by your skin, saying, “It could be getting facials regularly, using
quality skincare products, or eating a healthy balanced diet. When the skin is glowing and youthful looking,
anything goes.” Esthetician Theodora Koutsougeras owner of
Reishi Beauty, also recommends getting into the habit of using oils on your skin, which
can be specifically tailored to your type. She says, “We have a skin barrier and we must allow
for it to do its job, so anything that will help protect and encourage it to do its job
is great.” Brush it off Exfoliation is also an important ritual for
glowing skin. And Berenice S. Rothenberg, owner of Berenice
Electrolysis and Personal Beauty Center, is a big fan. She recommends exfoliating… “…One to two times a week, to break up the
keratinized protein that accumulates on the skin, which accelerates during the colder
winter months.” If you are a little apprehensive about using
exfoliants on aging skin, don’t be! Rothenberg explained that removing those unhealthy
skin cells lets products work more effectively. Get that color in check Those dark circles can add years to your face,
but don’t immediately hit up the concealer. Lauren Serra of Blushington Makeup & Beauty
Lounge recommends color correcting under your eyes, instead of using concealer. With lots of color correcting products and
palettes on the market that address a variety of issues, you’ll just need to put in a little
time finding the right one for you. “You are your own rainbow.” Do the dew, not the disco As we age, our skin can become dull and lose
elasticity. But jumping on the glittery bandwagon won’t
help. Instead, get your glow on through a dewy look. Spickard says this technique… “…Makes the skin look years younger and
dewy without being glittery or metallic.” He suggests using a dewy foundation, topped
with an all-over glow product on the high points of the face. Now, you’re really ready to let it glow! “Krispy Kreme glaze, Dunkin’ Donuts… She’s ready.” Thanks for watching! Click the List icon to subscribe to our YouTube
