1. Go for a dewy finish
Our complexion isn't naturally matte, and a sheer base like cushion compact can bestow this finish while subtly hiding your skin's imperfections. Finish with a finely-milled powder and dust on the T-zone only.

2. Aim for soft brows
A good rule of thumb in creating a younger makeup look is that anything that is too perfect will age you. That said, your brows shouldn't be super plakado. With a light hand, fill them in with a medium brown or taupe powder, pencil, or ink to allow the brow strands to stand out. This video demonstrates the whole brow technique.

3. Down with liners
Well, not really. Using a fine-tip eyeliner pen, thinly rim directly above your lashes, then draw the wing in the outer corner downwards, lifting the wing very lightly. This technique creates a doll-like effect that Japanese and Korean women love. For the lower lashline, use a beige eyeshadow to softly define the eye shape.

4. Use a satin finish blush
Use bright and pearlized blushes like carnation pink, cherry red, coral, or orchid, and apply on the apples of the cheeks for a youthful flush.

5. Contour with caution
The Kardashians have influenced us that sculpted cheeks should be the norm. While this can really define your features, doing so can age you. A young face has plump cheeks and is full of collagen. If you're conscious of you jawline, brush a matte bronzer under your jawline and chin.

6. Highlight with care
Creamy highlighters can produce a diffused glow on the skin. Dab a tiny dot of highlighter on the top of the cheeks, the tip of the nose, above your lip, and on your chin. Blend with your fingers or sponge.

7. Favor a tint
A sheer wash of color on the lips appears more youthful. Use a lip and cheek tint and finish with a gloss or moisturizing lip balm for more kissable puckers! You may also use a moisturizing lipstick in a bright hue. Blot with a tissue for it to leave a slight hint of color on the lips.
