8 Makeup Hacks that can help you conceal wrinkles within seconds
As women, we love looking our best. We are fond of dressing well and putting on makeup that can hide all our insecurities such as acne and wrinkles. Wrinkles, especially, are what we aren’t a fan of at all. We hate them and find remedies to delay or hide them in any way we can. Although wrinkles are a part of a natural process we call ageing, we still look out for ways to not get them at all. Wrinkles or some may call them laugh lines, give an overall old feel to your face which might disrupt the way you want to dress up for a particular occasion. They can completely ruin your mood if you fail to figure out what needs to be done with them. Wrinkles can be your worst enemy but there are techniques, thanks to making up experts, that can help you hide them for some time. These tricks won’t vanish your wrinkles but can conceal them for a temporary period of time.
Do you want to know how? Well, there is no rocket science involved here so anyone can try them out. Read ahead as we unveil 8 makeup for wrinkles hacks that can hide your wrinkles and save your day.
Nothing beats hydrated skin. You definitely don’t want to look like a raisin when through plenty of moisturization you can look like a beautiful grape. As you grow old, your skin tends to get really dry which means your wrinkles get a chance to stand out more. To avoid that from happening, put lots of pressure on and keep reminding yourself to moisturize your skin every day. A moisturizer with hyaluronic acid is highly recommended as it helps to absorb the water into the skin, really quickly.
Also in parallel, drink lots of water and consume as many fruits as you can. Feel healthy and fresh from the inside out.
Most people when age, rush on to use as many anti-ageing creams as they can get their hands on. This isn’t a healthy behaviour and for healthy skin, one must consume as many as just two anti-ageing creams to avoid any reactions of the chemicals. Your skin might get irritated and lose its smoothness if you apply different brands of creams all at once or even after intervals. Look for creams that are rich in Vitamin C and help to make your skin glow.
These primers are considered blessings from the Lord. You can hear each and every makeup professional talk about these with love and respect. Silicon primers are considered weapons against forehead wrinkles and scars. After you are done moisturizing your face, put on this primer. You can apply it easily by using your hands. Let the primer soak into your skin. Put some foundation afterwards. Applying primer before applying anything else does only good for your skin. A silicone primer smoothes down your skin and fills up gaps creating wrinkles.
We have this misconception in our minds, that more foundation to hide wrinkles. This is not at all true. A heavy application of foundation means that lots of spare foundation settle down on your wrinkles, making them stand out more. A light or medium coverage foundation works great to hide wrinkles and gives your face a much needed smooth and flawless look.
The collagen in your skin is a much-needed element to find against wrinkles. Sometimes there is not enough collagen present to do its job and for that you need retinoids. Retinoids signal your skin to produce more and more collagen.
There are so many products available in the market that are rich in retinoids. It takes about 3 weeks to 8 months to show results with retinoids.
Giving more attention to your eyes can help tackle your wrinkles. The first rule here is to avoid false eyelashes as much as you can. False extensions highlight your saggy eyelids which you definitely want to avoid.
Focusing makeup attention on your eyes will help rake away attention from your wrinkles. Highlighting eyes will bring them more into focus and that’s all you want. Also, choose matte eyeshades as opposed to shimmery ones. Glitter and shimmer from these eyeshadows tend to settle down on the wrinkles thus highlighting them more than ever. Lighter or neutral eye shades go great with hiding wrinkles. Use them to work out any look.
Lastly, liquid eyeliners are a no-no. These eyeliners tend to spread around with wrinkles. Use a pencil to highlight your lines.
Face powder is your worst enemy. Yes, we know you love it and your makeup feels settled once you apply it but do you know a single application settles down on your wrinkles and highlights them more?
If you feel like throwing away your powder is a big deal for you, then try reducing the use as much as you can. Try light loose powders that are enriched with minerals. Swap your blush on powder with a blush on cream to decrease the focus on your fine lines.
Use smudge-proof listings to avoid your lip colour spreading around your lips and other parts of your face. When the colour spreads out in fine lines, it highlights your wrinkles and dry skin. Try using lip pencils and a good quality gloss as much as you can.
So, how did you find these 8 hacks? We would always encourage you to accept your wrinkles and fine lines just the way they are because they have lots of memories and stories of years you have spent, to tell. But it also doesn’t matter if you feel don’t comfortable carrying them and you shouldn’t be insecure about them. Flaunt them if you can or simply hide them if you feel like it!
