Make-up whizz shares warning over highlighter trick that’s making women over 35 look so much older | The Sun

A MAKE-UP whizz has shared her warning over a highlighter trick that’s making women over 35 look much older.

So if you want to look younger, you’ll need to listen up, switch up your beauty routine, and try this simple but very effective hack.

Beauty fan Shira explained that women often make a big mistake when applying highlighter, and not only is it not very flattering, but it will make you look dated too.

Sharing her advice on social media, Shira shared a clip with the caption ‘If you were born in the 80’s and early 90’s you were probably taught to highlight your brow bone with a bright white frosty shadow.'

The beauty whizz sarcastically added: 'The whiter and more frosty the eyeshadow the better.’

She then continued: ‘This eyeshadow look definitely had its moment but using a warm champagne toned eyeshadow to highlight your brow bone is way more flattering and less dated.

‘Cool toned eyeshadows can also look sallow on the skin while a warmer time blends cohesively.’

Demonstrating her advice, Shira used a bright highlighter under one eyebrow, as she explained: “Make-up mistakes to avoid if you're over 35.

“Instead of highlighting your brow bone with the super white and bright shade, yikes, use a warmer tone shadow to only highlight the arch of your brow bone.”

Under the other eyebrow, she then used a warmer eyeshadow colour, as she added: “Your brows will look lifted and snatched, without looking so dated.”
