10 Makeup Mistakes That Can Age You
Beauty blunders—from meager brows to harshly lined lips—that can make you look older than you are. By Maura Fritz
Solution: Softening the Look
To keep lip liner from looking severe or jarring, match it to the color of your lipstick. Another way to avoid telltale lines is to match the lip liner to your natural lip color. Use a creamy pencil for best results (one to try: Lancôme Le Lipstique, $24.50, lancome-usa.com)—if your lips have any dry patches of skin, a dry pencil will adhere to them, so the makeup will look patchy, not smooth.
