Age Defying Tips
LOOK 10 YEARS YOUNGER WITH THESE SIMPLE MAKEUP TIPS!
CARGO'S founder, Hana Zalzal, shares her suggestions for taking 10 years off your face with a few simple makeup tips:
“Most women don't realize that their makeup routine needs to change as they age. As we get older, more is not more! The following are the best tips I've collected from our pro artists over the years”
1.Powder can sometimes settle into fine lines and make your skin look duller. If you need to control oil, try using an oil-absorbing primer or powderless finishing liquid. CARGO's liquid powder is a great choice.
2.Shine is youthful. Use gloss to keep your lips looking young and fresh. If you are going for a deeper lipstick color, make sure it does not bleed or feather into fine lines around the mouth. CARGO's reverse lipliner is perfect for locking both gloss and lipstick in place.
3.Long lashes are a sign of youth, but as we age we lose lashes. A lash-growing mascara or treatment can restore lashes and prevent them from falling out. Try CARGO's LashActivator Mascara.
4.Hair is also lost from the brow. Fill in sparse areas with a good brow pencil or brow-colored shadow and be sure to extend the brow outward a little.
5.Our natural eye crease loses definition as we get older. Eyes can become puffy and our upper eyelids can droop. “Draw” in your crease with a great neutral eyeshadow. Make sure it has no shimmer as shimmer can emphasize fine lines around the eye. CARGO's Essential Palette is perfect for creating a youthful, sculpted eye.
6.Bring back glow! Skin can appear dull as it ages. Choose a tinted moisturizer that adds radiance and has light-diffusing properties.
7.Curl your lashes and extend your upper lash lines a little upward (with an eye pencil or liquid liner) to open up the eyes. If you don't own an eyelash curler, try a curling mascara like CARGO's 3-Triple Action mascara.
8.Use a primer to fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
9.Choose a bright but sheer blush color and apply to the apples of the cheeks to give radiance to the skin. A universally flattering shade that adds pop to the cheeks is CARGO Blush in Catalina.
10.My favorite trick - An instant eye lift without surgery: choose a very light to white color MATTE eyeshadow and apply it to the outer corner of the eye and then upward a little toward the temple. CARGO's EyeLighter makes this age-old trick super-easy.
