Make up like Kate Moss – lifting with bronzer from 40 and 50

Make up like Kate Moss - Lifting with bronzer from 40 and 50

Put on makeup like Kate Moss and your face will look much younger. This is about lifting with bronzer (also called “Kate Moss Contouring”): This is one of the latest TikTok beauty hacks. You simply need a creamy, matte bronzer (preferably a stick). Contouring has had its day, now it’s all about a softer look. It used to be all about contouring and chiseling your cheekbones, now it’s all about the no-makeup look and accentuating your makeup. Instead of applying makeup in the contours to create shadow, go higher with blush and bronzer. The result: an upscale, more youthful look. To keep the result from being too thick, opt for a creamy bronzer that’s easy to apply and blend with a brush, sponge or your fingers.

How to do it:

  1. Use a matte cream bronzer and place a small dot on the lowest point of your cheekbone towards your nose.
  2. Trace your cheekbone with the same bronzer, starting with the dot on your cheek and ending at the tip of your ear.
  3. Take your finger and lightly pat the product in until it blends with your skin and looks like a natural shadow.

Instead, make sure your skin is well hydrated , and give it a light pink undertone for a more youthful look.

Make up away wrinkles: add some facial oil to your foundation.

If you want to achieve a natural glow without applying tons of highlighter to your cheeks, add some face oil (2-3 drops) to your foundation to make your skin look dewy and radiant. This will give your makeup a youthful glow.

Eyelashes get thinner as you age, and popular belief is that you need a thickening mascara to make them thicker, but that’s wrong. Your lashes can’t support the extra weight. Heavy formulas flatten your lashes. Instead, use a lengthening mascara that makes lashes lighter, and look for mascaras with thin brushes so you can easily mascara each lash.

Lip liner seems like a difficult makeup product to master, but you can easily master it if you know where to start. The secret to applying lip liner with precision is to make sure that the shade of the pencil is as close to your own lip color as possible.

Once you’ve found your favorite lip liner, first outline your lips with the pencil and then finish the look with a lip gloss and a light lipstick. Just go straight for the lip liner and then apply a lip gloss or a bright lipstick to make your lips look plumper and instantly younger.
