Should We Wear Makeup to Look Younger?
Makeup or NO makeup?
Should we wear makeup to look younger?
Yes! (I actually learned this from my 15 year old daughter…..)
I have always thought that wearing makeup would make me look older, so after turning 35 I stopped wearing makeup, in hopes of looking younger…. But unfortunately that didn’t help……. At all!
ACE Professional Single Makeup Soft Brush Blush / Powder
Moving to Florida from New York was also a bad move for the health of my skin, since I absolutely love the sun and can’t stay away from the beach!
After listening to my teenage daughter tell me over and over again that I should start wearing makeup to look younger, I finally gave in!
Boy was she right! 🙂
If you are having a hard time getting older (like I am….) and you want to look younger, I strongly advise you to start wearing the right kind of makeup to help you look at least 10 years younger!
I’ll show you how…..
We are on the same boat here ladies!!
Looking Younger is Possible!
Wearing Makeup to Look Younger!
It is extremely important to wear the right kind of makeup for your skin!
For women over 35 I strongly recommend wearing anti-aging makeup, which will help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on your face.
If you have bad skin, (like me….), prone to acne and age spots, besides the anti-aging makeup, you should also wear makeup with medication against acne.
It is amazing the stuff they have out there to help us ladies still look good into our 40’s and beyond!

I am very excited to share a few of my secrets with you!
Are you ready?
Buy Quality Makeup!
Ladies, I’m sure you know this already, but I’m gonna say it anyway…
Do not buy cheap makeup!
Invest in a good quality product for your skin!
Buy a known brand!
Second tip: always blend your foundation with your fingertips!
Using a sponge will make you look older…
(Don’t forget to apply a little bit of makeup under your eyes as well, otherwise you are gonna look like a zombie!)

Last tip: your makeup color should be the exact same color as the inside of your wrist!
When in doubt, better get one a little bit darker than whiter!
Trust me on this one…
I learned my lesson the hard way!!

How to Apply Foundation Makeup
and a few other last tips
Art of Air Professional Airbrush Cosmetic Makeup System
When applying your new foundation, just add very little first, starting on your cheeks, forehead, nose, chin and very little under your eyes…
Remember, less is more!
Stay away from red lipstick!!
Red lipstick will make you look older!
Just wear nude or light pink lipstick…. Very little!
After a certain age, wearing strong lipstick will make us look old, instead of young….
Do not go heavy on your eyes either!
If you must wear something, just apply a fine line over your eyes, not under!
I usually only wear foundation. Nothing else.
I hope you liked my tips and have a great experience with your new makeup!!!
Be gorgeous! 🙂

This is also a great video tutorial on how to apply your makeup to create a beautiful ‘nude’ glow, which gives the illusion that you are NOT wearing any makeup!
BareMinerals: Great (Affordable) Makeup Brand!
Best Makeup to Look Younger!
Bare Escentuals BareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation, Medium Beige
I am also a HUGE fan of BareMinerals, which is an affordable makeup brand that is EXCELLENT for hiding imperfections on the skin!
It is made using Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, which is great to help with acne!
I usually carry this awesome makeup with me everywhere I go and reapply very little, every time I need a ‘refresher’ on my face.
It is super lightweight and very easy to apply! 🙂
If you must wear lipstick…
Lime Crime Velvetines Durable Lipstick
I don’t usually wear any lipstick at all, only a healing lip balm, but if you must wear lipstick and you are approaching your 40’s, I suggest wearing shades as close to your natural lip color as possible!
Like I said before, red lipstick or other strong colors make women look OLDER, not younger…
(Of course that is my own personal opinion…)
If you are in your 40’s…
I am over 40 already and I confess it is not easy…
Sometimes the image I see in the mirror does not match the image of my face inside my head…
Some women adapt easily growing older…
I am not one of them…
But I know that having the right attitude is everything! 🙂
