Forget the powder:
Instead of powder, use a setting spray to keep makeup in place. Add an extra layer of moisturizer to dry or dehydrated areas before applying any makeup. Many finer lines can be reduced or eliminated with extra hydration. Additionally, use liquid foundation with light-reflecting particles, and cream blushes and bronzers.
So, saving your eyelashes hasn’t really worked out. The good news is that false eyelashes are easier to pull off than you think. First, begin with a “natural” looking strip where the lashes aren’t too dense. Cut off the inner third of the strip; you’ll only be applying to the outer two-thirds of the eye.
Next, take the bulbous end of a bobby pin and drop a dab of eyelash glue on it. Use the bobby pin to lightly coat the lash strip in glue. Wait for five to ten seconds to let it firm up just a bit. Now, use tweezers to carefully “drop” the lash strip directly on top of your lash line. Press it on gently as it dries all the way.
Concealer Lip Contour
Any lines, hollowness, or sagging around your mouth casts subtle shadows. Therefore, if you want to make the most of your lips, conceal the area around them to cancel out any discoloration. This makes your lips stand out a little more. It can also be done after applying lipstick to clean up any little mistakes and keep the lip line crisp and uniform.
Want lips to look a little more voluminous? A little concealer or highlighter can help there, too. After setting/blotting lipstick, make two to four very tiny dots in the center of your mouth with the concealer or highlighter. Use a clean, stiff brush to pat until blended. This will add more dimension to deflated lips.
Every area of your face has different needs. Dirt tends to clog pores at the sides of the nose and in the cleft of the chin. Cheeks easily get irritated from dryness or sun exposure. Foreheads can be rather oily for some, and dry enough to accentuate lines for others.
This is why applying different masks to different areas of the face is very effective. Clogged pores can unplug with clay masks, chamomile and gel masks can calm the cheeks. Balance can be restored to skin on the forehead with charcoal or rose essence. Don’t forget hydrogel patches for underneath eyes!
