Today’s tip is about A Makeup Mistake When Applying Lipstick That May Make You Look Older :

Tip 5: When choosing your lipstick shade, don’t choose a nude shade, choose shades that are closer to the darkest part of your lips:

Losing fullness and pigmentation in the lips is something that happens naturally as we age. While nude lip colors are quite popular and some shades are beautiful, choosing a shade that is too close to your skin tone will cause your lips to blend in causing a loss in your natural lip line.

Since aging causes the lips to thin and nude lips cause a loss of the natural lip line, using a nude shade will cause you to look older than you actually are. Instead, choose shades that are closer to the darkest part of your lips to keep a more youthful look to the entire face.
