Facelifting is very in nowadays and you might have seen influencers raving about it all over Instagram and Facebook. The truth is, some of us have been following these facelifting techniques for years but had no idea until the trend is very popular. Technically, facelifting is done by a cosmetic surgery procedure, the main purpose of which is to give a more youthful facial appearance. However, it is costly and not every one of us can afford it. Also, not everybody wants to get cosmetic surgery done on their face as a number of things can go wrong, but we are not going to into those details.
These are some of the tips which I follow to give my face a lift with the help of a bit of makeup. Keeping in mind, I am 23 and this works just fine for me.
1. Applying concealer at the outer corner of eyes:
The biggest secret for giving your face a lifted look is by applying concealer on the outwards of the eyes. You might have seen a lot of YouTube makeup tutorials in which influencers apply an unnecessarily excessive amount of concealer under their eyes in a triangular shape. If you want a lifted look, this is the thing which you are going to avoid. Just apply a little bit of it in the inner and outer corners of the eyes and blend.
2. Using the right method for Blush-on application:
We girls are used to applying Blush-on onto the apples of the cheek for ages, right? But guess what, this is not the right technique of using blush-on. Applying it directly onto the apple of the cheeks can make the face look a lot chubbier than it actually is. Rather what you should do is, apply it onto the cheekbones and drag it in an upward direction towards your ear. This technique looks super flattering on any face shape and skin color.
3. Apply eyeliner on the upper eyelash only:
The way you apply your eyeliner greatly affects the way your eyes look. Give it a try on yourself. On one eye, apply kohl on both the upper and lower lash line. On the other eye, apply a winged liner only onto the upper half lash line. And compare both sides. You, yourself will notice that the eyes with excessive kohl look droopy whereas the eye with liner on only the half of the lid gives a lifted appearance to the whole face.
Make these little changes in your daily makeup routine and get an illusion of a facelift. Who needs a facelift surgery when we have makeup, right ladies? Do give them a try and don’t forget to have a lovely day.
