Face Contouring for Mature Skin

Face contouring is not only a beauty trend but also an efficient trick to add youthfulness to your makeup look. As we grow older, our face loses a significant amount of fat and moisture. Because of this, age makes our face lose its natural definition. One effective way to combat this instantly is through face contouring. The right makeup tricks should help enhance and define your facial features to make you look more youthful. Think of face contouring as a facelift – without knives and needles!

First and foremost, identify areas that need lifting. Some of the most common problems in mature skin are nasolabial folds and sagging skin around the cheekbone area. Of course, anti-aging creams can help solve these problems, but only makeup can instantly difference. By knowing which areas needed some bronzer, highlighter, and concealer, you'll be able to make your skin younger.

Take a look at these easy face contouring tricks according to a specific area on your face.

  • Cheekbones – age weighs the skin down, and the cheekbones visibly suffer from that. To lift your cheekbones, apply a lighter concealer or highlighter on the outer V of your cheekbones to attract more light on it. On the other hand, use a bronzer that is two to three shades darker than your skin tone and apply it onto the hollows of your cheeks. It will give the illusion of having a more prominent jawline and higher cheekbones.
  • Frown lines – identify where the frown line is and apply an ashen shade of concealer on top of it. Blend it very well and allow it to set before using your matching foundation.
  • Nasolabial folds – Trace along your nasolabial folds using a concealer two to three shades lighter than your skin tone. Following your nose contour from the corner of the mouth, make sure that you blend the concealer well to hide the fold.
  • Forehead – to enhance your forehead's shape and draw attention away from your wrinkles, apply bronzer onto your hairline. Do not apply too much onto the temples, or else it will only make your face look more sunken.
