Growing old is something that many people just don’t want to face. Aging can be terrible for some people that just dread the thought of looking and becoming old
When people think of aging they often think of how their looks deteriorate and they lose all their beautiful youthful appearance. There are steps that you can take to help retain your youthful appearance without needing to resort to painful and expensive plastic surgery.
If you have gray hair it isn’t that hard to color it. You don’t need to spend lots of money at their hair salon; there are many great hair colors available at the grocery store. Highlighters are also very effective and enhance your natural color and give you a youthful appearance. Choose a color that isn’t too dark as if you go for a color that’s too dark for your complexion it will actually make you look older.
The style of your hair can make a big difference to your appearance. There are many different hairstyles these days and they incorporate many ways of wearing bangs and the different styles can make a big difference to your looks. You can wear your bangs sweeping lightly over your forehead or you can wear them straight.
A layered hairstyle cut to the neck area will soften your jawline by drawing the focus away from it. Shorter layers on the top of the head will add volume and take more focus of any sagging areas and also of the jaw line. Styling your hair around your eyes will help to hide any crow’s feet that you have. If you have long hair then why not try some layers to refresh your appearance, this is just as good as a natural facelift.
Makeup is great for changing your appearance, particularly around the eyes. Reshaping your eyebrows can make you look a lot younger and if your eyebrows are thinning then use a cosmetic pencil to fill in any sparse areas. You can also use a brow powder to blend the pencil to look more natural.
Concealer can help to hide age spots and dark patches. If you have any dark circles under your eyes then try a creamy color concealer that has peach or yellow undertone. Don’t use concealers that are too light for your natural skin tone.
Once you have applied the concealer then apply some foundation with a powder to seal it. Don’t use too much powder as it will highlight any flaws and lines in your skin. A cream blush is much better than a powder blush as the powder blush can also highlight the lines in your face.
Dark lip colors can make your face appear harsh and bring out the imperfections in your skin so it is best to stick to lighter shades of lip color. Adding a little lip gloss to the bottom lip will make your lips appear fuller.
Keep your skin hydrated and in good condition by drinking lots of water and using a good moisturizer daily. Make sure that your foundation is a moisture-rich mix. Too much foundation will bring out any lines and make you appear older so apply foundation lightly.
