Hide Wrinkles

While a few simple tips and tricks can be used to conceal blemishes and discoloration, hiding wrinkles is a trickier
task. It’s incredibly important to use the appropriate products and applications to smooth these lines, without
getting product caked into them. By applying your skin products properly and creating a fresh, youthful glow, your
wrinkles will be your little secret.
1 Choosing Your Foundation
Look for anti-aging formulas. There are plenty of foundations on the market made for anyone
struggling with wrinkles and fine lines. Look for formulas containing retinol, peptides, and antioxidants,
which all have smoothing and collagen-boosting benefits. Additionally, look for sheer foundations that
are branded with words like “light-reflecting” or “illuminating.” A little bit of a glow helps to reduce the
appearance of lines
2.Choose a moisturizing foundation if you have dry skin. When your skin looks particularly dry, any
wrinkles and fine lines will be accentuated. When you’re choosing a foundation, look for ones that have
moisturizing qualities. Ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid will help your skin retain moisture
throughout the day, while foundations containing salicylic acid can dry your skin out even more. Finally, avoid
matte foundations

3.Use a foundation with SPF. You can also apply sunscreen with your makeup. Before you invest in
expensive “fountain of youth” products, don’t forget to pick up some basic sunscreen. Sun damage to your
sensitive facial skin can make you appear much older than you actually are. Avoid new wrinkles and sun spots
by making SPF a regular part of your routine
Prepping Your Skin
1 Exfoliate your face. If you don’t exfoliate regularly, this is a great routine to pick up. Mature skin can look
dull and colorless, which won’t do your wrinkles any favors. Scrubbing off the dead skin cells 1-2 times a week
will help to brighten your complexion. Exfoliation can also increase the production of collagen, the protein
responsible for keeping skin plump and tight.
● You can use either a chemical or a manual exfoliant. Generally, chemical exfoliants
are a more popular choice for aging skin. Look for products that have lactic acid or
other gentle exfoliants to incorporate into your skincare routine.
2 . Moisturize your skin. Mature skin is often dry, and dry skin can make wrinkles look more prominent. A
couple minutes before you’re ready to start doing your makeup, apply moisturizer to your entire skin to give it
some much-needed moisture. If you’re willing to spend a bit more, find products with hyaluronic acid. These
can help plump up the skin, reducing your fine lines

  1. Prime your skin. A makeup primer is key at any age, because it creates an even base for your makeup
    to go onto. When you have wrinkles, primer is even more important. Apply it over your entire face. Make sure
    that you get primer into your wrinkles, rather than glossing over them. You may need to pull gently at the skin to
    open up the wrinkle a bit, allowing the primer to get into it.
    ● Look for primers with a silicone base. These will help smooth out the skin and conceal
    fine lines.
    Smoothing Your Skin
    1.Apply your foundation. Choose a thin, light foundation. With thicker foundations, you run a greater risk
    of having products collected in fine lines. Just like you did with the primer, make sure to get your foundation into
    the wrinkles. Rather than smoothing it over the wrinkles as if to cover them, you want to make sure the product
    is being evenly distributed all over your skin. This will help give your skin an even, more seamless appearance
  2. Smooth your foundation with a damp makeup sponge. Run your Beauty Blender or similar
    makeup sponge under a bit of lukewarm water, and squeeze the excess out. By using a damp sponge to apply
    your foundation, you’ll ensure even, natural looking coverage. Then, gently pat out your foundation with your
    sponge, making sure that everything is thoroughly smoothed and evened out. If you applied your foundation
    using a foundation brush, this will also get rid of any accidental lines
    3.. Apply concealer to the eyes. Pull your lid taut as you gently dab your concealer into the skin. This will
    ensure that the product is going into the fine lines instead of sitting on top. After you’ve covered your lid, use
    that same foundation below your eyes. Cover up any dark circles or discoloration by gently dabbing the product
    under your eye in an upside down triangle shape
  3. Set your skin with a translucent powder. These powders are perfect for anyone with wrinkles,
    because it sets your foundation and concealer without adding any more coverage. By using only a light coat,
    your products will stay put without looking cakey. Apply the translucent powder evenly to your entire face with a
    fluffy powder brush.]
    ● If you don’t set your face with powder, your foundation will slip and slide, eventually
    settling into wrinkles and making them more defined.

    5.. Fill in your eyebrows. While eyebrows don’t make the skin look smooth, thinning eyebrows can age
    otherwise young-looking faces. Gently fill in sparse areas on your brow using a brow pencil, gel, or pomade.
    Use light strokes or flicks to mimic the shape of natural hairs.
    ● You don’t need to build big, bold brows to make your face look younger. Simply focus
    on areas where the hair is a little patchy or thin. Fill these areas in and your brows will
    quickly look younger.

  1. Brightening Your Complexion
    1.. Revitalize your complexion with bronzer and blush. Using a smaller foundation brush, sweep a bit
    of bronzer on your cheekbones. Blend it upwards to your temples, adding a bit of warmth anywhere the sun
    would hit. Then, apply a bit of blush on the apples of your cheeks. These products help to warm up the face,
    giving you a youthful glow that will make you look young and healthy. Make sure to blend both your bronzer and
    blush thoroughly.
    Make sure to put your bronzer on your cheekbones, rather than underneath them as you would in
    contouring. This can make your face appear more sunken, but the goal is to achieve a natural-looking glow.
  2. Create a soft highlight. Use a small amount of illuminating powder or cream to make your face
    glow. Apply it over the very tops of your cheeks, towards your temples, to create dimension. Use a soft
    hand while applying to create a soft shimmer, rather than a bold highlight. This highlighter, in conjunction
    with your blush and bronzer, will make your skin appear youthful and glowing.
    Again, make sure to get highlighter into the fine lines, rather than brushing over them. Avoid adding
    highlighter to areas where lines are already pronounced, though, such as smile lines around the eye
    3..Spray your face with a setting spray. A setting spray helps to hold the makeup in place. Once you’ve
    carefully applied your products and your skin is looking lovely, you don’t want anything to smudge or collect into
    your wrinkles. Close your eyes, and spritz a setting spray over your entire face. It will air dry quickly, and you’re
    all set!
