While it may take some an hour in the morning to complete their beauty routine, not everybody has the time for this. The next time you are in a rush, try OROGOLD’s ten-minute youthful makeover for a fresh, younger looking appearance.
Step 1: Complexion
For the first step, OROGOLD recommends using Bobbi Brown’s Tinted Moisturizing Balm, as this is a great product for aging skin as it does not sink into any fine lines or wrinkles. Using either young fingers or a brush, apply the balm to your face, evening out your skin tone. Next, use a very small amount of concealer on any dark shadows under your eyes. OROGOLD stresses not to overdo this step, as you don’t want your skin to look too white in any areas. You will usually need much less than you think!
Step 2: Blush
The next step is to give your complexion a light flush, and the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush is the ideal product to use. Melt it into the balm over your cheekbones, blending it into the skin to give you a healthy glow.
Step 3: Eyes
To begin working on your eyes, a product such as the Clinique Lid Smoothie is great for adding a sheer wash of color while smoothing out your lids. As you age, it is important to focus on makeup that will define your eyes, as just a little will go a long way. Next, use a darker eyeshadow, such as a cappuccino color, on the outer edges of your lids, making sure to blend so that there are no harsh lines and the look stays soft and light. Next, using an eyeliner pencil, darken the line above your top lashes, smudging it with a Q-tip to ensure that it does not look too harsh. Use the pencil to create a light line on your lower lash lid, making sure to smudge it in. Once done, move onto your lashes, giving them a quick curl before swiping them with your favorite mascara.
Step 4: Eyebrows
As you age, your eyebrows will begin to thin out, so it is important to use an eyebrow pencil or shadow to fill in your brows, giving them some much-needed definition.
Step 5: Lips
Using a lip pencil, work your way around your lips in a feathery movement, blending it in slightly to avoid any dark lines. Use a sheer tinted lip balm over this, giving your lips a slight stain as well as some extra definition.
Step 6: Bronzer
A sheer bronzer is the final step in the makeup routine. Be sure to blend it in well so that it gives your face some warmth without looking too obvious.
As you are applying your makeup, OROGOLD advises that you regularly step back and take a good look in the mirror, working out if certain areas need more coverage, or if maybe you have gone overboard with one of the steps. It is always better to use less and then add more rather than having to take your makeup off and start the process all over again.
