The BEST Makeup To Look 10 YEARS YOUNGER! 10 Youthful Tips & Tricks

by Lahiru Dilan 01 Sep 2022

 Hi. So good to see you this week. It is a makeup application, and it's one that I think this audience might appreciate. How to apply makeup to make you look at least 10 years younger. The key is in the formulation, it's in the heavy-handedness or, in this particular case, being a little bit more light handed and just mindful of certain rules that seem to apply once we hit a certain age. Also, the key is to not have this take up too much time. We don't want to spend forever looking like we have a more youthful glow. So, I'm going to show you how to do this. I've got 10 steps that are very basic and easy to follow that you can utilize. . . I bet you'll even be able to utilize a lot of the products that you have right now. So, first and foremost, I'm starting with a blank surface here. And the key to a youthful glow is glowing skin. And the way to achieve that is moisture and a more subtle coverage. So, instead of thinking of a heavy formulation foundation, I want you to think a little bit more of a lighter dewy application. And there are several ways that you can achieve that. You can break away from your foundation and switch over to a BB or a CC cream. The two that I've used repeatedly here are the Garnier SkinActive BB cream and the IT Cosmetics CC cream. Both of these have sun protection in them, so you don't need to apply sunscreen. Or another trick that you can do is, if you don't want to invest in a different product, take your current foundation and cut it in half with moisturizer. And that will give you a little bit more of a minimalistic look, a little bit more of a dewy finish as well. So, there are many ways to make this happen, and the key is, obviously, not breaking the budget while we do this. I also have another little weapon in my arsenal, and this is the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating. And I will take this and mix a little bit in my foundation. It gives a bit of kind of a sun-kissed summery glow, a bit of a shimmer to it. And the key is you don't want to overdo it with shimmer but you do want a little bit of a glow going on. So, I'm going to utilize the IT CC cream. And a little goes a long, long way with this stuff, so, I'm going to do a pump. And this color is medium, I sort of alternate between medium and tan. And I'm going to add a little bit of the Laura Mercier and just kind of mix it up. And here we go. Just using a brush to apply. The key is it'll give you some nice coverage so you feel like you have something on your face, but you want to be able to see your skin. And that's a big part of having that glow. And it's what we love so much in our younger kids, you know, our teenagers and 20-something girls, you know, their skin is just so beautiful, and it has just a little bit of a sheen to it. So, it's really just recreating that look and giving yourself a little bit of coverage at the same time. Okay. So, now that that's going on, then I just bring it down on the neck as well. And that's it. Pretty, pretty quick. Any residual I just take from my hand, I hate to leave some on my hand and not get it on my face. All righty. So, from here, the next step. . . I forgot to pull this out of my drawer, give me 2 seconds here. And that is a eyelid primer. And I think that's really important to give your eyelids a nice foundation and something to help your makeup adhere to. So, and I will list everything for you in the description portion, as always, but this is just a great way to cut the redness in the eyelid and provide a nice eyelid foundation for the eye shadow, which will also be a very light neutral application. But you don't want any redness in your eyelid and really want to start with an even palette. Okay. And I always take the residual and just sweep a little bit under my eye. And this is a great trick to catch eye makeup that falls below. It will prevent things from moving south and tends to keep it northward, which we all love. Okay. So, the next step is to hide discoloration. And for that, I'm using the Tarte Maracuja creaseless concealer. It's my all-time favorite. A little bit goes a long way with this, so, you're just going to want to go right in the under-eye area, right here. And if you want, you can save this step for after eye shadow if you feel like you get a lot of eye shadow below the eye. And you can always clean up a little bit as well afterward. I'm not going to set this with powder just yet. So, if I need to add more, I will. But I'm really just taking and I'm pressing in the areas where there is discoloration. And I want everything to even out. And, if you have any spots, any sun spots or whatever, you can always hit it there as well. Okay. Next up on my list is filling in the brows a little bit. You don't want to create too heavy of a brow because we're going for a more of a natural pared-down look here, a more youthful look. But, as we get older, our brows tend to thin a little, so they need some help. And I'm just going to use this Anastasia Strawburn and a brush. And I'm just going to create some feather-like strokes with the brush. Okay? So, you just go in and you follow your own brow line. And it's going to be, again, very light. But just giving the brows a little bit of a pop. I'm lucky with the brow tattooing that I've done and microblading. It's a lot easier and quicker, as you can see, to just deepen and follow a line that's been created. I've always said this was one of the best investments in doing this. So, if you're on the fence, take it from me, it's been a really good choice. And I do find, with my no-makeup looks, I don't even feel like I need to do eyebrows at all. All right.


So, again, that's just giving our eyes some framework. And now what I'm going to do is move on to eye shadow. And for this look, again, a very nice neutral matte palette. I love this Japonesque eye palette, I've had it for a while now, and I've featured it on this channel. But, as you can see, it's an array of very pretty neutral colors. So, again, with a relatively light hand, I'm going to start with the lightest color and go on the inner corner of my eye and then up into the brow area. Same on the other side. Next up, I'm going to utilize this bottom section here, and I'm going to start with this one on my eyelid. You just can't go wrong with, you know, just nice tans and browns. Khaki green I use a lot because of the greenish color in my eyes. A lot of you blue-eyed gals can use some gray here. So, you've got some options. But the key is just a very light-handed approach to the eye makeup. We're just opening up the eyes, focusing really on the center portion of the lid, above into the crease, not going too far in with this medium shade. Okay. And I'm going to use this darker brown, and we're working our way out. So, this is now going on the outer third portion of the eye. Okay. And last but not least will be the darkest color, really focusing on the outer lash line, and then just a little, little bit out to the side. Just for some extra depth and definition there. Helps to create a wider eye look. You don't want to go too far out the side but just a little blocking outside the lash line here. Okay. And I'm going to take a blending brush, and then I'm just going to swirl it all together because the key is keeping it natural, no hard lines or edges. So, I just swirl and blend. And then I will follow up. A little bit more highlighter right here. And just kind of clean up if there's anything below with the lighter color. So, basically, you're looking at your eye as if it's cut into a third. So, this third, this inner corner to right about here, is your lightest. From the mid section to two thirds out would be your medium tone. And your outer third is your darkest tone. That helps to create width in the eye, and it opens things up. So, that's the extent of the eye shadow. You notice that I stayed above, nothing happened below. There's a reason for that. So, the next thing we're going to do is we're going to tightline the eye. So, this is not the smokey eye where we do the waterline, that's a bit more of a dramatic look. The tightlining of the eye keeps your pencil basically in this upper lash line, and it really defines that upper lash line, and it creates an open look. So, you're going to take a good liner, you can do a dark brown, you can do a black, either/or, just depending on your lash and your skin color. And you go from the underside and you're basically pushing up. So, let me push in a little closer so you can see. And I'm going underneath, and I'm hugging my lashes and drawing in this black line. So, it really makes your lash line stand out. And then just a tiny little whisk out to the side here. Same with the other eye. Going from the underside. So, we're not going down because you ruin the eye shadow here and you close off the eye by doing that. So, underside, kind of smudging in the lash line, and then a tiny little whisk out on the corner. And that is tightlining, and it really, really opens up that lash. So, now we're going to finish this off with mascara. Again, upper lashes only. The reason why we focus on the upper instead of the lower is the minute you start putting shadow and mascara, you create the focus going downward, and it creates a droop. We're trying to lift. So, everything stays above. I've been such a huge fan of this mascara, the Thrive Causemetics. Between that and the lash boost that I've been doing, it creates an incredible false-lash effect or lash extension look. And with these two going on, I feel like I've got lash extensions on, but I don't. All right. And, so, our eyes are done. Now what we're going to do is. . . you've got options here. If you have very dry skin, you may not want to use any powder at all. If you want to control shine a little bit, very little powder, I'm doing the Laura Mercier translucent loose powder but with a little brush. And I'm just going to tone down the shine a tiny, tiny, tiny bit. And I'm not going to do too heavy of a powder because I still want to have that youthful glow. Okay. So, the next step is strobing or highlighting, contouring, depending on how you want to look at it. You've got options here. I am going to pull out a couple of choices for you. If you want to stay on the matte side, if you feel like you're developing a lot of lines in this area and you don't want to use anything shimmery here, this Smashbox contour palette is a good option because it gives you ways to still contour, bring light up into the cheekbone area, a little bronzer. So, this is a choice for you. Or you can do something that has a little bit of a shimmer. So, it's completely up to you in this area. But strobing, as in highlighting and contouring, is great for that sort of summer sunkissed glow. So, I'm going to use a bronzer and a brush, and I'm going to do it. . . you know, you can go in here, but to make it easy for you, it's like doing a number three. You go here and here, here and here. So, we take a little bit of bronzer.


And here and here. It's kind of where the sun gets you when you're outside. And what's good about doing bronzer to here is that it helps to accentuate the jawline. So, we're doing our number three. And it really just pops in a nice little glow. And you can also use bronzer if you want to sculpt or contour a little bit more in the cheek area, you can. That's up to you. But we're not doing any heavy carving, no dark contours or things like that. Blush. Blush, blush, blush. So, again, a very light peachy pinky nude, nothing too bright. This is a color called princess by ULTA. And we want to be careful not to do big apples right here because that can be very aging. So, we want to keep the blush just hugging tight, right along the cheekbone here on the side. So, again, it's just a little bit of a whisk right here toward the side. Right along the cheekbone area. Just to give you a hint of color, again, like you've been outside playing around all day. And you can follow this up now with your choices of highlighter. If you want to do a powder highlighter, you can use a flat brush like this and run that right here. Or, if you want, again, a little bit of a shimmer, you can use kind of a highlight stick. And, instead of applying it directly, I'll take a little bit on my finger and then just smudge right here along the upper part of my cheekbone. And it just gives a little cheekbone pop, a little shimmer. But, again, it's up to you to decide if you feel comfortable with a little shimmer or if you want matte. That's a completely personal decision. Okay. Wow, we're almost done. Next up would be lips. And for lips, again, the secret to having a more youthful look is to go lighter as we go older. The darker colors can be very harsh. You know, I will limit those to maybe an evening look, especially in the winter time. But, for the most part, I'm going lighter, and I tend to like the peachy cream colors. So, one of my absolute favorites is. . . if I could read. . . is by Marc Jacobs, and it's called In The Mood. And, again, it's a real, real peachy cream color, like I said. But before you apply lipstick, you definitely want a lip liner. And you want that as close to the lipstick shade as you can possibly get. And I'm fishing around here. . . Okay. Hold on. Bear with me. There it is. And, again, this is by NYX, I will list everything in the description box, but this is a very nude color. And it serves as a border and a boundary, so things don't bleed and move where they shouldn't move. We want everything to stay in place. So, just follow along. Okay. Follow it up with a light application. . . of the lipstick. And I like to hit it with just a little, little, little, little bit of a goldish shimmer but right in the middle. And it's not a gloss, it's just a little bit of a shimmer. Which, again, for me, since I use a little bit of a shimmery highlight, it all sort of plays in there and plays together. But this is a very simple basic makeup application. It allows your skin to come through, it allows people to see your skin. It gives you a bit of a glow, it gives you a little warmth to the face. As we head into the spring and the summer months, it's wonderful, you know, to add these colors to the spring-type tones that we're wearing. And, you know, you get a little bit of sun outside and it's just a very. . . I don't know, just a very warm summery sunny fun feeling. But, again, all of these things help to lift, still create dimension in the face. But we're thinking lighter as we go older, we're thinking less is more, and we're playing around with what we have. But it's really being mindful in how we use what we have and not overdoing it. Like I said, again, with my line of work, I have to overdo it because the lights and the camera cut through the makeup like that. And I'm grateful that I had to learn all that stuff because it's given me a skill set to really learn how to recreate things. But it's so nice to be able to bring it back to natural and showcase what you have, celebrate what you have, and then to be able to take it to that next level and kind of surprise yourself. So, I hope you found this video helpful. I hope it's maybe got you thinking how I can reuse and rethink my application and my colors and placement and all of that. If you have some wonderful tips and tricks that you use to help you let your inner glow through and really kind of downplay age, please put it out there.
