If you’ve ever wondered how stars seem to look so perfect and youthful onscreen, but when you see candid shots they seem a decade older, it’s the magic of the makeup artist who works miracles with the tools of his or her trade.
Knowing the right ways to create a more youthful appearance by using lighter and darker tones to make parts of your face seem fuller while hiding puffiness and imperfections in other areas, can take years off your appearance and have you looking your best without the help of a plastic surgeon.
Make sure you lightly apply it close to the lash line and the brow bone and the outer corner of the eye. The color should be just a shade lighter than your foundation, so it provides the highlighting effect without being obvious and immediately noticeable.
You’re using the effects of the lighter color to bring the area to the foreground and reduce the sunken look of the eyes, making them more outstanding and youthful.
④ You’re ready to do your eyebrows, which can change your appearance from tired to alert and rested. If you have thicker eyebrows, consider thinning them a bit to give a lighter more youthful appearance to your face.
You can use eyeshadow matching your brows and use a brush to create a higher brow to open your eyes. Begin the brow above your normal brow line and move the highest point of the brow outward, more toward the side of your face above the outer edge of your eye.
If you already have thicker or average brows, use the shadow from the highest point toward the end, making the highest point a bit higher and further to the side. The tail should be slightly higher than the bottom of the start of the brow.
Make sure the upward line starts right before or just at the edge of your eye and goes straight up. That lifts the appearance of the eye. Use a slightly lighter color of shadow and in circular motion apply it from the darker shadow to the middle of the eye right above the crease. Blend the shadow upward at the outside toward the temples.
