Hello there 🙂
Here's what actually works for me.
Melissa Meyers is a Los Angeles-based influencer specializing in beauty, style, travel, and wellness. Her blog, The Glow Girl, aims to empower women to adopt the best version of themselves, to age gracefully, and to cultivate a shine from the inside out. She is also a 55 year old with a passion for beauty. Hear from Meyers below about the five best makeup tips she swears by because she feels and looks 10 years younger. At 55, I committed to continue to feel good and look good as I got older. As a beauty lover, I'm always looking for the best products that can help me! I have a lot of questions about my best tips for elegant aging and I definitely have some great secrets in my pocket to turn the clock back a few years! Below I share five makeup hacks that I use regularly to remove a few extra years from my face. Scroll on! Use a blurred primer! Finding a great foundation is a necessity to ensure a smooth, long-lasting makeup application, but not all foundations are made equally. One of my most important anti-aging tips for makeup is investing in a foundation that is specifically marketed as a "blur" and softens the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles. Farsali makes a great, clean beauty primer called Skintune Blur Perfecting Primer Serum ($ 54) – one of the best to get a soft-focus finish that is deeply flattering with age. I also like StriVectins Line BlurFector Instant Wrinkle Blurring Primer ($ 39) for its ability to fake the look of younger airbrushed skin. It's almost like a magical optical illusion! As our eyebrows get thinner and thinner with age, creating the look of thicker, full brows helps to give them a more youthful look. A great brow filler in your make-up bag is a must! Ere Perez makes a great pencil to fill the inevitable gaps that can come with age, and they also have a great clear gel to take care of naturally – their Aloe Gel Lash and Brow Mascara ($ 24 ) is one of the best in clean beauty and it is sweatproof and water repellent. I also like BeautyCounter & # 39; s Brilliant Brow Gel ($ 24). It comes in different shades and has a buildable formula to give the look of thicker brows. Luna Nectar's Moon Boost Eyelash and Brow Serum ($ 75) is another new find I recently discovered at the Indie Beauty Expo. Although I've only been using it for about a month, I've already noticed tons of new broth growth! (It's so good, I even featured it in my onTuwi boutique!) One of my top makeup hacks to look ten years younger than I am is glow. A highlighter can define your bone structure and complexion and give the skin a radiant, youthful radiance. I recommend focusing your application on your forehead and cheekbones and maybe just a touch along the bridge of your nose. Ilias Liquid Light Serum Highlighter ($ 42) is incredible. It has a light gel-based formula that gives your skin a warm and moist finish. I also use the Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick from the legendary makeup artist Gucci Westman ($ 48). It is super flattering as it melts into your complexion and also contains special ingredients to strategically promote collagen production. (Which naturally and gradually decreases as we get older!) A great drugstore option is CoverGirl. They've just launched a clean beauty line, and their Clean Fresh Cooling Glow Stick ($ 11) is super portable and has a slightly shimmery finish. For an all-round shine, it's also worth trying Saie's latest clean beauty product, the Glowy Super Gel ($ 25). It is available in a universal color and is ideal when worn alone for a fresh natural shine or under the foundation. If you prefer a powder from the formula, I like the upgrade highlighter from PYT Beauty ($ 22). It is silky, smooth and buildable for a sun-kissed glow. Use the Olie x Melissa Meyers Golden Ray Drops ($ 112) lightly dabbed on the cheekbones above your makeup to highlight your skin on damp skin (and super natural!). This new facial oil is not only the perfect foundation for your skin, it also leaves an overall velvety texture. It consists of French seaweed, an active ingredient that has been shown to form collagen! Fill and care for your lips. As we get older, our lips become thin and our pouty mouthpieces are not as plump! A great lip filler will be your best friend if you find the right one. The big secret here is to find a formula that hydrates AND plumps up. I have a few favorites. Glossier's Bubblewrap Eye + Lip Plumping Cream ($ 26) is a great option as it has a double effect as a lip and eye product. It hydrates these two sensitive areas, fills the skin and never feels sticky. I also love using the Bare Minerals Moxie Plumping Lipgloss ($ 18) in addition to their Gen Nude Under Over Lip Liner ($ 16). It's a great combination of products to mask those annoying fine lines around my mouth. If you're worried about irritation, Whish makes a great watermelon lip balm ($ 20) that is made from organic ingredients and is wonderfully moisturizing. It is made with bakuchiol, a less irritating herbal alternative to retinol. Dark circles and blemishes can definitely make us look older or tired than we actually are! This is where a great concealer can come in handy. My absolute favorite is RMS Beauty & # 39; s Un Cover-Up Concealer / Foundation ($ 36). It is made from clean, organic ingredients, comes in a variety of colors, and never gets dry or cake-like on the skin like many other concealers do. I never leave home without using one of the industry's most popular beauty must-haves – Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Eclat All-Over Brightening Pen ($ 35). I even always have one in my pocket to do touch-ups! For super dark circles and tired eyes, there is one that offers even more coverage. It really is one of the best products to camouflage and lighten tired eyes. Another groundbreaking concealer that works wonders to hide dark circles and sun spots is Amazing Cosmetics & # 39; Amazing Concealer ($ 28). No wonder why they call it the magical eraser and also produce a lot of colors. Of course, there are fantastic skin care products and other non-invasive procedures that can also help with gentle aging, but many of these things take time and patience to get results and can be expensive. Sometimes we just want a little more instant gratification! Then I turn to make-up hacks to quickly and easily build confidence. I recommend experimenting with these tips and products and seeing how you feel! Next, a 54-year-old shares 9 beauty products that make her look 10 years younger
