Beyond Wrinkles: 7 Beauty Mistakes That Make You Look Old
Sure, an aging complexion contributes to your overall appearance but looking older is about a lot more than just wrinkles
Blush worn on the apples of your cheeksSure, little girls have rosy, taut, cutie pie cheeks that flaunt little circles of color that light up their entire faces. But, as your formerly firm cheeks begin to sag, it's not a great idea to highlight the situation -- which is precisely what happens when you apply circular blush strokes to the apples of your cheeks after a certain age.
Try this instead: A big shift in how you look can result from a simple blush application tweak. Seek out the highest point of your cheekbones and apply the blush there instead of on your apples. Be sure to employ a sweeping back and forth motion using a wide, fluffy brush so you don't end up with Grace Jones war paint-type stripes. It's also a good idea to glom on to a flattering hue. Leave the daisy pinks and lilac purples for the mall set and pick up a becoming peachy-pink shade like Nars Blush in Orgasm, $30, which flatters most skin tones.
