5 Ways to look Younger in less than 5 minutes

We all do what we can to make sure we don’t look older. Night creams, wrinkle-reducing serums, and under-eye creams aren’t the only ways to blur the lines of aging. For those of you who might have missed the anti-aging memo, check out this makeup tips that can make you look younger in less than 5 minutes!

Illuminate your faceHighlighter not only gives you that nice glow, it can be used strategically to lift and contour the face, making it look more youthful! Try a little highlighter like the Jane Iredale Eye Highlighter Pencil ($11.99) on the inner and outer corners of the eyes and along the brow bone to brighten up the eye area. You can also use the Glo Minerals ($12.99) highlighter to lift the cheeks. This will draw your cheeks upward.

 

Warm It Up!

Nude lipstick and matte bronzer look lifeless on skin that’s dull. Instead, a neutral rose color applied to the lips like the Tigi Cosmetics Decadent Lipstick “Bliss DL” ($12.99) really brightens it up. For the cheeks, try the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Blush – Plumberry ($15.99) this mineral based sleek blush formulated with mica and jojoba oil to deliver a smooth application and cheeky glow

 

Open those eyes!

As your skin loses elasticity, your eyelids begin to droop. To fake lifted eyes, go for a good mascara. This product is one of the easiest things you can apply to make your eyes look bigger—and therefore younger. We couldn’t think of a better option to add that volume to your eyes better than the bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara – Intense Black ($17.99)

 

Go for a Liquid- Base Foundation

There is a time and a place for matte skin. However, powders can make your skin look dull and give you a cakey finish that accentuates lines and wrinkles. Go for a liquid-based foundation with a dewy finish, something like or similar to Youngblood Liquid Foundation ($26.99). The moisture and illuminating properties will minimize those pesky lines and make your skin look fresh and youthful. Plus, it is recommended to go for a yellowish foundation. Yellow warms up the skin, and the warmer your skin looks, the younger it looks!

 

Fill in your Brows

Because your brows thin out and droop at the ends as you get older, fill them out to look way younger! Lift your brows by applying a powder or brow pencil with a brush-through spoolie along the top line of the tail of your brows. Then, fill in any sparse areas lightly and brush through for a soft but defined look. We recommend the Glo Minerals Precision Brow Pencil ($12.99) since it works to fill in, sculpt, and shape your brows just how you like them.

 

TheBeautyPlace.com Beauty News: Bold Eyebrows Are Back

Sienna Miller Is Flaunting A Fuller Brow

Here, in TheBeautyPlace.com offices, we have been whispering about the demise of the super arch since the spring shows, but celebs and us mere  mortals seemed reluctant to adopt this new bushy brow look.  But then Sienna Miller proved us all wrong with her fabulous take on the fuller brow.

Makeup artist and stylist to the stars, Romina Perrotta says thin brows are unflattering and make a women seem unapproachable.  What’s more over-plucking is anti-aging, she says. Instead, go with your natural shape and manicure rather than massacre what you have.

So, if you have fallen victim to the overplucked look and want to take on the new trend, what do you do?  It would seem that there is no choice but to go for it and go cold turkey on the plucking.

It takes about 12 weeks for eyebrows to return to their natural shape.  For a helping hand try a brow-growth gel.  We love the Talika Eyebrow Lipocils, which is a colorless, odorless plant-extract based gel.  Applying this gel twice a day to your eyebrows naturally reshapes the line of the brow by stimulating their growth. Eyebrows become thicker and healthier.

In the interim, while you wait for your brows to grow out, why not create the look?  You can do this Eyebrow Extenders.  They come in dark or light.   Thanks to these magical fibers, your eyebrows can be thickened and redrawn for a natural look.  The transparent gel is filled with brown fibers that act as new eyebrows and stay in place for a whole day.  In an instant, your eyebrows look naturally thicker, your look is deeply intensified!

Let’s face it girls–the big brow is back.  So, embrace your inner Brooke Shields and flaunt a fuller brow this season.
