Make up wrinkles& conceal: These tips help
The number one rule for getting rid of wrinkles: never apply too much makeup. See Foundation and Co. If your makeup looks like it was applied with a spatula, the wrinkles may be gone, but your face will look mask-like and plastered over. A natural look can be achieved with the following tips.
1. Do not forget the right care before applying makeup!
Before you apply make-up, moisturize your skin to plump up small wrinkles from the inside. An anti-wrinkle cream with active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and lipids is the best choice, as it provides a short-term firming effect. To create an even base, or painting surface, for your anti-wrinkle makeup.
2. Apply a light, liquid foundation with a matte effect
Now it’s time for the foundation of your make-up. It’s best to apply a light, liquid foundation that gives your complexion a matte finish. This is how you can avoid powder, which quickly makes the face look mask-like and tends to settle into wrinkles over time.
Extra tip against wrinkles: Choose a foundation with light-refracting particles that also reflect light from wrinkle shadows and mimetic pigments that move with the facial expression, i.e. do not settle in the wrinkles.

3. Conceal dark under-eye shadows and small wrinkles with concealer
To get a youthful glow, reach for concealer now and dab it on the creases around your dark circles and over your dark circles if you see noticeable dark spots. Caution, also here applies: Do not overdo it! The skin should still look natural.
4. Define the lip contour with a nude-colored lip liner
Why? Because lip wrinkles make the lips appear to run outwards, so there is no longer a clear demarcation between the lips and the surrounding skin. With a lip liner that exactly matches your skin color, you can define the lip shape again from the outside. Finish with a light gloss on the mouth and you’re done! If you’re bothered by wrinkles, here’s how to remove them from your lips.
5. Emphasize the eyes, but not too dark!
Bright eyes distract from the most annoying expression lines. So go ahead and apply mascara and eye shadow in a shade that is slightly darker than your skin color. Soft brown tones are best for eye make-up, instead of the classic black. This might look too harsh.
This makeup technique will make your eyes look instantly bigger!
6. Finally, apply a touch of blush
Removing wrinkles also means cleverly distracting with a fresh complexion. A soft blush tone on the cheeks will keep you fresh and youthful. Attention, do not paint any pink apple cheeks, but really only ensure a soft pink tone.
