8 Tips To Look Younger With Make-Up
Most times when you add make-up to the face, it just ages everyone, makeup sinks into lines, dark contouring can add more depth that take away from a rounder, youthful appearance....so I'm gonna give you some make-up tips to add some fountain of youth to your face!Here's my Make-Up Tutorial for how to look as youthful and dewy as possible, BABY FACE SPRAY, not sold anywhere ha ha ha: TIP #1. GO EASY ON THE CONTOURINGA little contouring can add depth and dimension, but too crazy and you add 5 years to your face. Contouring can add full roundness, but most "how to contour" images I see everywhere, just make someone look aged and a little crazy! If you are going to contour add some highlight to emphasize roundness too!TIP #2. APPLY A GOOD FOUNDATION & CONCEALER:Avoid foundations that aren't going for a "non-oily" look, those kinds will dry the skin out too much and give you a more "wrinkle and fine line" look! Cover up under eye circles and the eyelids, this will make you look less red and veiny, and more like baby-face perfection!TIP #3. GO EASY ON THE POWDEROnly powder areas that are oily, like the nose, forehead, chin and the eyelids to give an "oil-free" zone to apply eyeshadow, or it will just settle into the creases. Powdering the entire face can give a cake-y, dry look that will exaggerate fine lines and wrinkles everywhere!TIP#4. ADD SOME PINK!Pink hues give a youthful, glowy appearance to the face and eyes. Add a soft light pink-pear shimmer to the eyes for a bright-eyes look, and don't worry it won't LOOK pink, it will just draw the eye in a different way. Pink on the cheeks always look more youthful than any other shade you can use!MY PERSONAL FAVORITE: The Tarte Cheek Stain in Blushing Bride It's a cream cheek stain so that always makes the cheeks look more dewy, than a dry powder blush alone, and this shade is so pretty I just want to eat it!YOUTHFUL TIP #5. Darken Up Those Brows Baby!Just filling in the brows, will give a more youthful frame to your face. As we age, our eyebrows lighten and thin and eventually turn grey, so the darker your brows, the younger you'll look! WARNING: for those looking to take off 20 years, black eyebrows won't do the trick! ha ha ha Always go for a shade that matched the deepest tones of your hair (if you have colored hair, just go with what the natural shade of your hair, or for blondes 1-2 shades darker than you hair)WHAT I USED IN THE VIDEO: Tarte Amazonian Waterproof Eyebrow Mouse in Taupe applied with a good synthetic fiber, angled brush (*you can even get good and cheap ones at the art & craft supply store)TIP #6. LIGHTEN UP THE LIPSDark colored lips add drama and a little bit of lip-maturity! ha ha For a younger looking kisser, go with a nude-rose-pink colored lip, and a light pink gloss or lip color will make the lips look more youthful and plump!MY LIP FAVS: Too Faced Perfect Pink Lip Liner, Urban Decay Lip Liner in Naked and Urban Decay Lip Liner in Native (it's a super light nude pink, I use it as a lip color too!)TIP #7. SKIP THE SMOKEY EYE & GO FOR A DOE-EYED WING LINER:Smokey eyes, add a sultry look to the face, which is not so much youthful as it, well just "older and sultrier" ha ha ha. A black winged liner on the top lashline, really gives an innocent yet glamourous look, think Audrey Hepburn- fresh, youthful, yet classic and beautiful!TIP #8. PASS ON ADDING LINER OF SHADOW TO THE LOWER LASH LINE:Avoiding the desire to darken the lower lashline, will give a "eyelift" illusion to your eyes and draw the eyes upwards.Now you're ready to look like "the cutest little baby face"!!And I hope you loved my "How To Look Younger With Make-Up Video" and my special, extra baby faced, guest, Ellie!Huge baby-like hugs, your toddler-faced friend, Kandee (ha ha ha)PS.

Did you miss me, or my blog?!?Here's 3 things I want to share with you...#1. Some of you may have missed this little ol' blog and my youtube videos....Well, I accidentally deleted all my videos on my computer and my computer has been at the repair shop.WHICH MEANS:*I haven't had my computer to write my blogs or edit videos. (Yes, this felt weird and strange.)*I went to Playlist Live in Florida without a working computer. (Yes, that again, felt really weird.)I am now back in computer business. My files are gone, videos edited are no longer there. BUT, I will make ever better videos than those that got deleted!!#2. Also....I am the proud owner of this brochure:Why?!?Because I was not being smart many years ago, and went to tanning beds a few times, now I had to go to the Skin Cancer Institute and get a little piece of my leg cut out, last week, to get tested for skin cancer.MY WARNING: DO NOT GO TO TANNING BEDS!!! You can fake that business now with a quick smearing of self tanner!#3. Here's a little video to hold you over until I upload one, I'm aiming for tomorrow...because I have some exciting news to share with you guys, but here's an interview I did at Playlist Live, that I was pretty excited that anyone ever wants to ask me anything hee hee:Let's make this Monday, this week as awesome as possible...let's do stuff we've been putting off, set new goals for the week, and make some stuff happen, cheering you on, your pal, KandeeCome see all the junk I post all over the interweb:FACEBOOK * TWITTER * INSTAGRAM * PINTEREST * TUMBLR * YOUTUBE
