Looking younger doesn’t always have to do with a bulging wallet or Botox. Because, fortunately, there are now a whole range of clever beauty and make-up tricks that quite cleverly make us look younger. Here are five simple beauty secrets you can take from young-looking women.
1. Hurray for the fringe hairstyle
You want to look 10 years younger? Then you should think about a fringe hairstyle. Nothing conceals our worry lines on the forehead better than our own hair. And especially with a chic chignon or ponytail in the office, bangs look like a little rejuvenating treatment.
You think bangs don’t look good on you? Then start by taking the rigor out of your hairstyle. For example, if you like to wear a braid, pull out a few fine strands of hair at the front and sides. Very strict hairstyling may make us look serious, but it also makes us look older.
2. The right foundation makes you look younger
Of course, it’s great to have found a makeup that perfectly matches your skin tone and that your skin tolerates well. But if you’ve been using the same foundation for five years, it’s high time to try a new product. The demands of our skin are changing rapidly – and not only our daily face cream, but also our makeup must meet them.
Foundations with an anti-aging effect are perfect. They smooth your skin in addition to daily facial care. Make-up with an extra portion of shine particles can also make the complexion look years younger. They scatter the incident light in all directions and thus act as a soft focus. An absolute no-go for wrinkles, on the other hand, is mattifying powder. A complexion without any shine makes the face look sallow and older.
3. Nothing beats sunglasses
Sunglasses not only look stylish in summer, they also make us look much younger even in the mercilessly bright sunlight. Circles under the eyes, wrinkles& Co. because they simply disappear behind the glasses. Another plus: our sensitive skin around our eyes is also protected from UV rays and from the formation of new wrinkles.
By the way: Wear your regular glasses more often in the office instead of contact lenses. Stylish glasses can be like a rejuvenating treatment for your look. A nice side effect: glasses are a perfect distraction from tired eyes and conceal wrinkles.
3. Long hair makes you young
You think you have to say goodbye to your long hair as you get older? Nonsense! Long hair can look stunning at absolutely any age. But not only that: A full mane visually balances out narrow, prominent facial features and makes the face look much younger overall. By the way, an excellent styling for longer hair are soft beach waves. The soft waves bring movement to your hair and give you a dynamic, fresh look.
Tip: You shy away from long hair because the first gray or white hairs are making themselves felt? That’s still no reason to cut everything short. Do not hesitate and dye your hair. Hair color has a great influence on young appearance. Warm shades and bright highlights are ideal for a younger look.
4. Cream blush instead of powder
The fact that rosy-fresh cheeks make us look younger is actually old hat. Still, the amazing effect of a really good blush gets lost among all the contouring tricks with bronzer& Co. quickly forgotten. Of course, you can still contour your face with bronze powder, but powder should not completely replace blush. Bronze colors do not have a rejuvenating effect on the cheeks – but a creamy blush in delicate shades of pink or peach does.
Why creamy instead of powder blush? Quite simply, the creamy consistency instantly makes your cheeks look much fresher, much like after applying moisturizer.
By the way: Cream blush is the excellent companion for on the go. Put some color on the highest point of your cheekbones and then blend it downward.
5. Show your colors with make-up
While we often experiment wildly in our teens, we are much more confident in our 30s and 40s when it comes to styling and makeup. We know which colors look good on us and which part of our face we prefer to emphasize. Stick with it! Don’t let your age make you self-conscious and continue to dare to wear bright colors. Over time, our complexion loses its radiance. Fresh colors, such as a red or rose lipstick or eye shadow with shimmer particles bring you the glow back again.
Tip: You’re not a fan of a lot of color in make-up? Then reach for colorful statement jewelry, such as big earrings.
