Wearing sunscreen, practicing proper nutrition, and maintain a healthy lifestyle are some ways to ensure you look and feel your best at any age.
But let’s face it things, habits and environments are ever-changing. For the impatient among us, here are ten ways to help you look your best—in just seconds. From a foolproof fuller lips look to the easiest eyeliner switcheroo to skin care secrets that will get you glowing, we’ve gathered the best pro tips for looking years younger fast.
Our skin produces less and less moisture as we age. And when our complexion is dry and dehydrated, lines and wrinkles become more obvious and can even affect the way our makeup looks. Opt for Avon’s #1 anti-aging moisturizer like Anew Ultimate Day Cream SPF 25, a high-performance moisturizer that visibly transforms multiple signs of aging like tone, texture, clarity and overall fine wrinkles.
Or, try the Anew Hydra Fusion collection, which will both hydrate and defend from environmental stressors. The Hydra Fusion line contains hyaluronic acid and raspberry antioxidants to keep your skin looking healthy and glowing. Your skin will feel revived and you’ll get a more youthful appearance.
2) Upgrade your foundation.
Thick, matte foundations can make you look older. Instead, look for lightweight formulas with a luminous effect to give you a finish that’s radiant, not flat. We like fmg Magix Tint Natural Matte Tinted Moisturizer or fmg Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. A great option for a natural-looking glow, the tinted moisturizer visibly tints, blurs and moisturizes while giving skin the appearance of a delicate, radiant finish. If you want a little more coverage, try the powder foundation, a luxuriously soft, buildable formula that delivers a look of a flawless, silky-smooth complexion.
And don’t let your application age you either! Too much product or telltale lines of excess product around the jawline are both instant agers. For a more natural look, we recommend applying foundation only to the center of the face, then blending it outwards toward the sides. This feathers and sheers out the color around the edges of the face (where you usually have less to cover anyway), eliminating any unsightly lines.
3) Get glowing.
Our skin has a natural ability to slough off dead skin cells and replace them with fresh, new ones. However, this natural process slows as we age, leaving skin looking dull and lackluster. Give your skin a helping hand by exfoliating regularly! Treating your skin to a home peel once or twice a week will rev up cell turnover and instantly create the look of a gorgeous, youthful glow. A great exfoliating choice is Isa Knox Anew Clinical Revitalize & Reveal Intensive Peel, featuring AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and PHAs (polyhydroxy acids) to reveal the look of smoother, brighter skin in minutes!
4) Max out your lashes.
Get lush lashes that are all yours with Anew Clinical Unlimited Lashes Lash & Brow Activating Serum, a unique serum made with a peptide blend of botanicals designed to dramatically improve the look of your lashes. Get the best volume with Love at 1st Lash Mascara made with Vitamins A, C, and E to help strengthen your lashes. Your lashes will look longer, fuller and healthier in just weeks.
5) Break out the brown.
For the most flattering eye liner look, think beyond basic black. Trace your eyes with a rich brown shade, like fmg Cashmere 24HR Cream Eyeliner After Dark, then smudge the line a bit. Add more to your brows to help accentuate your look with the Tattoo Station collection pomade or brow pencils.
6) Add eye cream.
The area around the eyes is very delicate, meaning it is quick to show signs of aging. The fix: pre-concealer, smooth on a good eye cream to plump and soften fine lines and crow’s feet in seconds. Try Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System, which helps visibly treat and prevent the telltale signs of aging within 1 week.
7) Boost your blush.
Too-light, neutral blush shades can leave you looking washed out. But loud, super bright colors can look gaudy or juvenile. Instead, play in the middle with pastel pinks and peaches. Swirl a big fluffy brush over the blush, then dust the color on the apples of your cheeks and blend upwards. Add some color with the fmg Colors of LOVE collection, giving you a glow with many options like the Cushion Technology, a stick to glide a swatch of glow or even illuminating beads to add to those cheekbones.
8) Line your lips.
Is there anything more frustrating than lipstick that starts out perfect in the morning, only to have migrated into those little lines around your mouth by lunchtime? Luckily, the solution is easy: liner. Instead of tracing just the outside edge of your lips, fill in the entire lip, sketching along the outside, then feathering it in towards the center.
We like Avon 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo Lip Line & Fill Duo Add a lip balm to lips that need extra care such as our Dr.Belmeur Daily Repair Cica Moisturizing Lip Balm or brighten up lips with Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment.
9) Think light and glossy.
Lips lose volume as we age, so anything we can do to make them look fuller is a big plus. Bold colors can make lips look thinner, so opt for soft neutral shades of pink, mauve, and pretty peach. And go for glosses when you can—we recommend fmg Glimmer Lip Glaze! The shiny finish tricks the eye to make lips look plumper. If you prefer lipstick, consider adding a dab of clear gloss just in the center—it can make your lips look fuller.
10) Skip powder.
Finishing off your makeup with a dusting of powder like the Magix Dust Finishing Powder may work for some skin types but as you find your skin gets drier with age, you probably don’t even need it. Instead, embrace the natural shine you have. Skip the powder and replace it with a soft bronzer. Try fmg Colors of LOVE Glow Beads Illuminating Powder which provides a long-lasting natural-looking glow.
