Many women enhance their makeup application to hide the wrinkles they have on their face.
They usually apply a thick eye liner, bold lip color and wavy mascara. However you should be aware that most of these styles should be avoided by older women.
The thick application of foundation and eye shadows around the eyes can actually increase the age that they look.
For a more sophisticated and younger look you should apply makeup that is just enough not to be too bold. It is also important that you blend the colors properly too.
Eyes are a part of the face that has the biggest impact when a person looks at you. In fact it is the area where wrinkles appear most.
This then is of most concern to older women when they are applying eye makeup.
Without the correct understanding they apply thick bold lashes, eye color and eye liners that can make them look older than they actually are.

Here are some great tips to get a more sophisticated and younger look.
Tip 1: Moisturize & Conceal
Your skin becomes drier the older you get which is the reason why most of the wrinkle appear in the first place. So start with a great moisturizer.
Next use a foundation base; you can use liquid foundation, a liquid concealer or you can also use concealing sticks.
Just apply this on to the parts that you wish to conceal, focus on the dark areas and inflation (or bags) below your eyes.
Choose the best tone that fits to your skin color so that it blends well giving you a natural look. This is normally a shade or two lighter than your skin.
Always prioritize the eye area to cover the entire wrinkle. Aside from using a concealer; you can also use eye cream to cover the aging signs.
Tip 2: Eye Shadow
For the eyes go for eye shadow that has a light color which allows for a more sophisticated impact. The most basic eye shadow application is 1 to 3 colors only.
Using the colors of bronze, gold, beige and a very light pink can create a smoky eyes that can create the effect of a more youthful look.
Tip 3: Eyeliner & Mascara
For the eyeliner application, don’t put a cross black line over your eyes.
Having a dark liner is far too obvious to have on aging skin; instead opt for the light and simple eye definition make up. Brown, charcoal and deep purple are good alternatives to black.
Remember you should apply less mascara too. Use just enough to define the lashes that you have.
Before applying mascara always curl you lashes first for few seconds. One great option is to use fake lashes.
Tip 4: Lips
For the final touch you can use lip colors that suit to your age.
One thing to remember is that if your eyes shadows are a bit darker you need to apply light lip color and vice versa
So when you will have a very light color of shadow you can apply a darker lip color.
These are just some very basic tips that can help you achieve a younger look.
