Attention Columbus ladies:
Many women try to deter the ominous approach of Father Time by making the below common makeup mistakes:
Too bronze: Youthful skin has a peachy-pink tone that gradually gets more yellow as you age. Some women try to compensate by wearing too-yellow or too-brown bronzer. Instead, use more apricot tones.
Too dark/matte: Dark colors on your eyes, lips and cheeks have a shrinking effect. Matte shadows can make eyes look tired; matte lipsticks cause dry lips. Use light shades in eye shadows and look for lipstick with sheen.
Too powdery: To quote makeup artist Mally Roncal, “Powder is the devil.” It lurks in your fine lines and wrinkles and makes you appear “ghostly and tired.” Aim for a more natural, dewy look.
Too rigid: Hard lines around eyes and lips make features smaller. Smudge eyeliner slightly, and blend lip liner inward to soften it.
