After a season of experimenting with various versions of deep mocha lips and coal black eyeliner, there was one lesson to be learnt.Makeup up can age you.Think Lindsay Lohan with toffee coloured cheeks, or worse still, Rachel Zoe’s Golden Globes appearance with frighteningly dark eyes that drained all the colour from her face.After all burning plastic on anti –ageing serums and creams cakey foundation and glitter can still increase the wrinkle -crinkle rank.But there are cheat rules that promise to youthify instantly.For skin it comes down to balanced levels of super hydration and light catching pigments to create a plush glow.Powdery or thick foundations settles into fine lines to add micro sags around the face.But liquidÂ formulationsÂ give skin a lift, and those tiny shiny particles make niggling lines almostÂ invisble. FinishÂ up with a creamy orange tinged concealer thatÂ brightensÂ under eye shadows.
Scientifically speaking, the eyes and lips are the first areas to show signs of ageing.A dark colour makes any surface look smaller.While it great for the hips,it spells disaster on the lips.It’s time toÂ reassessÂ lip colours that are darker than your cup of coffee.If vibrant pink and red glosses aren’t your type, try deeper shades withÂ additionalÂ moisture.Unlike the drying effect of long lasting lippies, these have a slight plumping effect and reduce theÂ appearanceÂ of lines.Your tactic for the eyes? Steer clear from harsh black lines.A thick liner can weight down the lid.Cheat the wide eyed Bambi look by swapping charcoal forÂ chocolateÂ shades.Diffuse the strictness of the lines by blending and smudging colours towards the outer corners .Be light handed with the mascara and pay special attention to curling and defining the smaller lashes around the corners.
