Applying these wrong can result in not only the makeup not lasting long enough, but it can also add years to your face.

So if you’re a fan of lip liner, overlining your lips and matte lipstick, read on.

Lip liner

Lipstick isn’t complete without a matching lip liner, right?!

But for those wearing lip liner, you might be surprised to know that this could actually be making you look older.

Diane Kendal said: “I feel that it is often nicer to not use a traditional lip liner at all.
“I think it provides a younger-looking, fresher finish.”

So if you’re fed up with looking old, it might be time to ditch the liner!


Thanks to celebs such as Kylie Jenner, many of us are overlining our lips to make our pouts appear plumper.

However, it turns out that overdrawing your lips is actually adding years to your look.

But Diane said: “People often overdraw their lips and dark lip liner can be really ageing.

“It can look very harsh, especially on older women when you naturally start getting lines.”

So by over lining your lips you are actually drawing attention to these lines and making yourself look older than you actually are.

Dry formulas

If you’re a fan of matte lipstick, you might want to have a re-think if you want to look younger.

It appears it’s all about gloss and balms to achieve a younger look.

Diane explained: "There are liquid lipsticks that give that drying effect.

“That dryness can age your lips, emphasising lines, which is why you need a moisturising formula.”


So throw out your matte lippies and go for something with more shine to make you look that bit younger.

Can you believe you've been making such huge mistakes and had no idea?!
