But speaking specifically of the decade of the 40 years, the search for radiant skin becomes a constant, but there are beauty mistakes which can represent the complete opposite and, in this time of your life, become more noticeable. You may have incurred one and not even noticed it. We tell you what they are.
Not having an optimal skincare routine
‘He makeup It is beautiful, but more important is your skin that will be with you all your life ‘, the wise words of Eiza González are the kind of mantra that should accompany us no matter how old you are. The skin It is like the canvas on which you are going to apply makeup and if the canvas is not well cared for, it does not matter if you have the most luxurious and dazzling products in the world, if your skin does not shine on its own with good care (ranging from hydrate yourself, a good diet, even your skincare routine), it won’t look like that glow natural so desired.
Not paying attention to how you apply foundation
Jamie Greenberg, Gwyneth Paltrow’s makeup artist, explained in an interview that one of the most common mistakes what they do Women of 40 and more When applying its base, it is to do it indiscriminately and quickly with your fingers, losing sight of some areas of the face or creating lines of expression where they do not exist. Instead, he advises apply foundation with a brush of tightly closed bristles, take your time to spread it and do it evenly.

Believe that at 40+ it is mandatory to get rid of the length of your hair

The extension of your hair It will always depend on how comfortable you feel with it and how much you want to experiment. The women we mentioned show off their hair how long and radiant it is (even beyond 40) but, yes, do not abuse the effects of color. The babylights and the contour Blurred are your allies to bring a radiant appearance to your face without losing the naturalness of your hair.
