The best thing about make-up is that you can play with it to create a completely different face or accentuate your features even more. Here are some tips on how to give yourself a facelift at home.
The passage of time, prolonged exposure of the skin to the sun or daily stress are especially visible on the face and neck. Creases and folds begin to appear on the face, causing the facial expression to lose definition and tone. Now you can create the appearance of a lifted face at home.
Foundation is everything
Having a smooth foundation for make-up application is the first step to looking flawless. Then blend your foundation with a sponge, blending the foundation into your skin to create a “second skin” effect.
Be careful with concealer
If you’re looking to lift, apply concealer to the inner and outer corners of the eye, blending upwards to highlight. This is also a perfect trick to use if you need a quick eye lift.
Don’t blend upwards
Place contour under the cheekbone and a little under the jawline and blend to create shadows. Place concealer or highlighter over the contour to highlight the cheekbone area.
Look at blush placement
Instead of blushing your cheeks, apply product to the high points of your face. Lift your face by applying blush on the cheekbones instead of highlighting or correcting and on the temples to evenly sculpt the face.
With the high-lift technique, sweep eyeliner upwards at a 45-degree angle. It draws the wing outwards, creating an upward slanting cat eye, which also makes the eyes appear larger.
Place mascara in the centre of your eyes instead of concentrating on the outer corners. This trick instantly opens up the eyes, creating a wide-awake eye effect.
Bushy but tamed brows that are combed upwards and have mega volume give the face a subtle arch and elongate it, making you look more awake and refreshed.
