You no longer need to spend lots of money on cosmetic procedures in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Many modern cosmetics products make use of ingredients which reflect and diffuse light, making it easy to blur wrinkles, lighten dark circles, and restore a youthful, vibrant appearance.
By following these tips, you can maximize the effectiveness of cosmetics products to conceal your flaws and look your best.
Make sure you start with a good primer. If you are only going to add one new product to your cosmetics routine, this should be the one. A good primer will moisturize your skin and help anchor other products used to round out your appearance. Some good primers to try include:
- Laura Mercier’s Radiance Foundation Primer
- L’Oreal’s Pure Light Primer
Foundation should be your next addition. The best foundations available make use of light-reflecting technology to soften your appearance. We recommend Estee Lauder’s Invisible Fluid Make-Up. For best results, apply your foundation using Urban Decay’s Optical Blurring Brush, which will help polish the foundation into your skin instead of simply applying it in layers.
The light-reflecting particles in the best concealers can help you disguise bags under your eyes. For best results, use one of these concealers:
- YSL’s Touche Eclat
- Nurture’s Illuminating Touch Treatment Concealter
- Boots No. 7 Instant Radiance
Metallic eyeliners with light-reflecting pigments will make your eyes look big and beautiful when applied to your lower lashes. We recommend Opaline Flash, which glides on easily and bounces light to bring out the best in your eyes.
If you want to experiment with some new finishing products, make sure to choose one that is silica-based. These will moisturize your skin for a more youthful look. We recommend:
- Youngblood Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder
- LKC Miracle Glo Perfecting Glotion
Of course, such an involved cosmetics regimen can be time consuming, making it a bit of a hassle to deal with on a daily basis.
