Make-up has always been an excellent way for women to hide minor imperfections and emphasize their merits. However, it's good to remember that even small mistakes could add you a few “extra” years. With each passing year, it becomes more and more difficult to choose and apply cosmetics, so beauty rituals should be taken more responsibly.

Today, we will share with you some basic make-up principles and techniques for mature skin.
Five Golden rules of anti-aging make-up
1. Nude shades

Your lips become thinner with age, so it is better to give up dark lipstick. Instead, try applying nude shades and tender pink tones. Thus, the lips will look natural and distract attention from wrinkles.
2. No finish powder

This cosmetic will grant you a few extra years. Forget about the powder in favor of BB-cream or other tonal tools with a light texture, which you should apply in a thin layer. In addition, don’t forget that an improperly selected tone may also make you look visually older. Before purchasing, put a sample of it on the neck or jawline – it is the easiest way to gauge whether the tone is right for you.
3. One-layered mascara

An excessive amount of mascara won’t make you look younger. On the contrary, it's an instant aging agent. Try to apply it in a single layer, after combing the eyelashes with tweezers and giving them a light graceful bend. It's also better to start using lengthening mascara instead of extensions.
4. No gloss

Forget about glitter, shimmer, and flicker. Extra gloss will make wrinkles ten times more noticeable. Give preference to light matte textures, since they best mask the signs of aging.
5. Well-groomed eyebrows

Incorrect eyebrows can significantly worsen your appearance. It isn’t necessary to pull all of them out, but there is also no need to ignore them. Eyebrows should be well-groomed and look natural. If you don’t like their shape, a brow pencil will always rescue your image.
When applying rejuvenating make-up, make sure that all lines are directed upwards. And as for the rest of the principles, they can all be summed up into one simple rule – too much make-up is bad, no matter what age you are!
