Make-up is not only a great way to conceal one's flaws but it also helps in enhancing facial features.
It is the one thing that women of all ages love to do because of which newer trends keep revolutionizing the cosmetic industry.
The trends, however, vary from one age group to another. Here are some tips by Aashmeen Munjaal, make-over expert and director of Star Salon n Academy, to get your make-up right!
Make-up Trends For 20's
- You don't need to apply a heavy layer of foundation since your skin is already in its best form
- Just clean your face well with a good cleanser and dab on some moisturizer
- Put on mascara and curl your eye lashes as it will simply make your eyes look bigger
- Don't forget to experiment with liquid eye liners. "Liquid liner is the equivalent to stiletto heels for your eyes". Opt for graphic and cat eye liners.
- Take the benefit of your age, and play with various hues-from fuchsia pink to deep coral and deep red to ruby woo.
Make-up Trends For 30's
-During the 30's, the skin starts to lose its elasticity and moisture. So, religiously apply a good quality moisturizer
-You can include contouring tools in your make-up to give proper definition to your facial features
-Use a good quality concealer under your eyes to hide the dark circles and patchy skin
-Try out lipstick shades in deep purple, cinnamon, different shades of red and orange undertones.
-Highlight your eyes by using light bronze or light golden eye shadow. And for liners, opt for classic eye liners by creating thin line outsides the eyes
Make up Trends for 40's
-After reaching this age, skin starts to lose its radiance and one starts to notice fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and corners of your mouth. Use a good quality moisturizer daily
-Start applying sunscreen daily to protect your skin from additional sun damage
-Instead of using only black colored liners and mascara, add something more to your make-up. Use white eye pencil on the waterlines of your eyes as it will make your eyes look bigger
-Play with colors; don't be petrified to experiment with your hair. You can highlight your tresses and at the same time you can hide the greys
-Use a good quality concealer to conceal the flaws and add pink tone blush to add color to your cheeks.
Make-up Trends For 50 Plus
-After reaching this age, your skin starts to lose its firmness and smoothness.
-So, you don't only have to use a good quality moisturizer but also use a rich night cream every day before sleeping to wake up rejuvenated
-Use creme blush instead of using powder blush as it blends easily into the skin and gives you a dewy look
-Instead of using matte lipstick, use gloss. Lip gloss will give your lips a plumper look and the creases of your lips will also get unnoticed
-Apply soft kohl eye liner rather than dark liquid eye liners as it will make your lids appear less creased.
