“Mom! You turned thirty five? Unbelievable”- shouted her 8 year old son when the cake was brought into the living room. Once the wishing, hugging and other formalities were over, she moved to sit down for a chat with her close friends- the girl’s gang. After some quick pleasantry exchanges one of her friend comes to the point direct and asks her “how she looks young and ravishing even at this age? “With a chuckle, the gorgeous looking lady tells her gang that age and beauty are two different entities. There is no direct or inverse proportionality involved in these two aspects. To look young and beautiful, all one needs to do is to follow quick and quintessential make up tips that will return the radiance to skin and make the person look cheerful and splendid. Extending the girl talks further, here are some quick and easy to follow makeup tricks that can hide one’s age and make them look like a diva:
Colouring Hair Is Fair
Gone are the days when one has to take ammonia die and colour their grey hair into jet black to look young. Today there are plenty of colouring options where one’s hair texture and style can be completely changed over time. All it requires is some patience as the process takes five to six hours where natural colours are ingrained into the hair. After the treatment, permanent colouring stays as long as one cuts their hair. Also it has been noted that, these colouring agents are completely bio safe and there will be no residual damage in the future. Hence the first step to look young is to cover one’s greys.
Supple Skin Is In
As one ages, the skin tone begins to change slowly. From baby texture the skin turns soggy and less supple compared to the younger days. To bring back the softness back, the first makeup one needs to do is to rub generously a portion of moisturiser. It forms the base of any make up as it protects the skin from reacting with the chemicals that are laid on the top layer. Also it makes the skin hydrated and keeps it soft and fluffy. If the skin is not moisturised from outside and inside it becomes prone to getting fine lines and cracks. The only pinch point in makeup of such kind is the choice of brand that suits one’s skin type.

A good quality natural colour or slightly yellowish concealer can match the thirty plus skin tone well and hence, will do wonders on the face and neck.

Say ‘yes’ To Blushes
Another moment of madness when choosing makeup for a thirty plus would be trying to hide the cheek bones.

A correct blush will make up for the high cheek bones. One can try natural skin colour or use a shimmering finish blush to look fabulous in their 30’s or 40’s.
