While it is a natural part of life, no one really wants to age. As we get older our skin changes and more and more wrinkles start appearing. The good news is you don’t need expensive potions and lotions to try stop the aging, you can, with the help of your Burst Makeup Brushes, create a few looks that will make you look a little younger.

Invest in a good eye cream/serum. Bags under your eyes can make you look old and tired. Invest in a good eye cream or serum to help combat bags under your eyes.
Stop using powder. Ditch all the translucent powders as you get older. These powders settle in wrinkles and can cling to facial down, highlighting them, when you don’t really want to. Switch to creamy foundations and add a little facial oil, it will reflect light which is always a good thing even if you aren’t trying to look younger.
Be gentle with the mascara. Don’t apply heavy mascara if you are trying to look a little younger. Heavy mascara will cast shadows highlighting dark circles, making you look older than you are. Play around with leaving mascara off completely or applying it lightly.
Don’t shy away from colour. Many woman tend to stick to the same neutral shades of makeup. This can result in a dull look. Adding different shades of eye-shadow can actually help you to look younger.
Apply moisturiser before you apply your foundation. If you skip the moisturiser your skin will absorb the foundation and your skin will end up looking dry, highlighting wrinkles.
Try a foundation with gold in. If you are over 50 try find a foundation that has a slight gold colour to it. The gold tones in the foundation will neutralise redness and counteract a gray pallor. This will result in a healthy looking skin which will help you look younger.
Plump up your lips. If you dab a little Vaseline or a shiny lip gloss onto the middle of your lower lip. This will help you create a plumper set of lips which makes you appear a little younger.
We all age, there is little we can do about that. Embrace your beauty and highlight your stronger features using various makeup brushes and techniques. Don’t be scared to play around and see what tips and tricks will work best for you.
