Makeup trends often change with the changing seasons. With age, there are many changes in the face, starting from the bone structure that looks stronger, or maybe fine lines begin to appear around the eyes. Using makeup aims to make the wearer look more beautiful and confident. However, there are several types of makeup that will actually make your face look older. Even a few mistakes will make the face look ugly. Here are the makeup mistakes that you need to avoid.

1.    Wearing age-inappropriate cosmetics

When you are 18 years old, you shouldn't wear your mother's foundation. The formulas found in adult cosmetics differ from the needs of teenagers. Makeup products usually include an 'age bar' sign to get the right product as needed.

2.    Not Using Moisturizer

What women often neglect is not using moisturizer as the first step to applying makeup. If you don't use a moisturizer, your foundation or cushion won't blend in perfectly.

Besides that, it can trigger the appearance of fine lines on the face that make it look old. Therefore, make sure to use a moisturizer according to skin conditions.

3.    Too thick to wear eyeliner on the lower eye

It turns out that using dark eyeliner for the lower eyelid area can actually make your eyes look curved and make your face look old. If you want, use a pencil eyeliner that has the same benefits but is thinner.

4.    Use the same concealer color for all

Makeup often recommends using a concealer color that is slightly lighter than your skin tone, to cover any dark under-eye color. This is done to make the area look brighter, so that the face looks fresh.

But don't forget to use a concealer that matches your skin tone to cover up other skin problems, such as acne or dark spots. This color should not be lighter or darker. Using a concealer that is lighter or darker than your skin tone to cover up pimples and dark spots can actually make it stand out even more.

5.    Choosing the wrong lipstick color.

Needless to say, lipstick can make a person's image stand out even more. It doesn't hurt to experiment with bright, bold colors. But don't forget, if your lips are already full and full, you should avoid dark colors for your lipstick. No need for dark colors, just use lip liner to shape lips

6.    Too dark eyebrows

Straightening your eyebrows into clear shapes will make them easier to fill in, as you don't have to force them into shapes with makeup. In Korea, straight eyebrows with a slight curve are considered better, but try to stick with your natural brow shape. If you already have well-shaped brows, all you need to do is fill in the gaps gently. Je Yu says brow powder is best for achieving a soft finish, while brow pencil can be used to fill in larger gaps and fill in the outer edges of the eyebrows. If you have dark brows, dry them with colored brow mascara. The key is to make your brows very light with the makeup you use, so they don't create dark curves that will make you look old.

7.    Improper Blush Color

everyone has a different face shape, so choosing the color and applying blush is not the same. So, make sure you don't choose the wrong blush color to match your face shape.
