You can apply all of the anti-aging moisturizers or contouring serums you want, but if you want the immediate results, then you should use makeup because it is the key to looking younger and fresher. Just look at Kim Kardashian’s face. Scott Barnes, Kim’s makeup professional, used some special makeup tricks and now Kim has sculpted her face which has definition in all the correct places. Scott Barnes and makeup professional showed us their best tricks for getting an immediate face lift.
- Create fullness by adding blush on the apples of your cheeks.
Plump cheeks are a sign of sign of a healthy, young face. If you want to fake them, you should smile into your mirror and apply blush on the fullest part of your cheek. Barnes said that you should not create a racing stripe.
- You should add the final touches.
If you want to add definition to your face, you should fill in your brows. Gafni explained that you should opt for a color that is two shades lighter than your present hair color or a neutral color. He also said that you mustn’t forget a bright lipstick because if you use the brighter lip colors you can brighten your whole face for a more youthful and vital look.
- You should make contouring the initial step of your makeup routine.
Barnes explained that you shouldn’t use bronzer to contour on top of your makeup and that you must contour before you apply the foundation.
- Add dimension to your lids.
Gafni recommends blending a taupe eye shadow, such as RAMY The Perfect Eye Wand, to the creases of your eyelids only. This will make your eyes appear bigger.
- For a lifted look you should contour under your cheekbones.
High cheekbones are the key to a young-looking, lifted face. Barnes explains that you should apply a foundation which is a shade or two darker under your cheekbones if you want to sculpt them. Also, you should apply a foundation which is a shade or two lighter than your current shade to highlight parts of your face you want to accentuate. You should apply this lighter shade above your cheekbones.
- Apply mascara and eyeliner to the upper eyelash line only.
Gafni explained that this trick will visually lift your eyes dramatically. He recommends adding an extra layer of mascara for every decade over thirty because eyelashes get sparser as you getting older.
