Radiant skin is associated with youth and health, matte - with more mature age. Mattifying foundations often create a thick mask effect. For shine, use alternative products with radiant particles (here brands usually suggest in the name and write Luminous), for shiny skin - light weightless textures. If the mattifying foundation is still dear to your heart, you can use it with “illuminating” bases (for example, the MAC moisturizer from the Lightful C series) or add special fluids with luminous particles (for example, Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Serum).
Lots of powder

Many people think that applying powder is a necessary step to complete any makeup. In reality, a thick layer of powder only spoils the makeup and leaves the face fresh. Powder can highlight imperfect relief and, if applied incorrectly, will create a mask effect. It is better to use this tool after you have “lived” with makeup for several hours and the skin has begun to shine excessively: slightly, preferably with a brush, not a sponge, walk along the T-zone. If a special occasion requires evening makeup to last almost a day, then you can't do without powder. But after applying it, be sure to use the fixing spray that gives shine. Otherwise, there is a high risk that the make-up will add an extra 5-10 years to your face.
Several accents at once

Brightly lined eyes and luscious lips can look good in photos, but not in life. In order not to age yourself on purpose, always choose an accent: eyes or lips. If you plan to emphasize your eyes with arrows, active smoky eyes makeup, then give preference to lip balm, translucent gloss or lipstick to match your lips. The same rule applies to makeup with bright lipstick. Dark wine shades, classic reds, electric pinks and oranges look much better with lightly painted lashes or a thin, barely visible arrow.
Incorrectly chosen blusher

A healthy girly blush always creates the effect of a rested face. However, this rule only works with the right shade of blush. Give preference to cold, hot pinks (frost pink), and warm peach or berry shades are best set aside. Feel free to apply blush on the "apples" of the cheeks with any makeup.

Despite the fact that heavy contouring has long been a sign of the past, many girls continue to literally paint their faces. To look your age or a little younger, you should not completely abandon the highlighter and contouring bronzer. Just apply these products in moderation, avoiding obvious and crisp lines. Also, do not use orange-tinged contouring products to highlight the cheekbones and face edges. Here products are needed exclusively with a gray cold undertone.
Eyebrows that are too clear

Eyebrows with a clear geometric shape, as if verified with a ruler and protractor, can look spectacular. At the same time, the brighter and more graphic the eyebrows are drawn, the more years they add to their owner. Fill in only the gaps with a pencil or shadows, simulating the missing hairs with strokes. It is also not necessary to strongly remove the hairs that are knocked out at the ends of the eyebrows with tweezers. A slightly careless shape without brightly traced lines is a sign of youth. >
