Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ultra Salon and Cosmetics and I'm going to give you some tips on how you can use makeup to look older. First thing you want to do is use a little bit of foundation. Make sure it's matched to the skin so you don't have any line of demarcation. So we're just going to put a light coating of foundation on her skin to even out her skin tone. It's going to give her a more polished, even look. Next we're going to do is we're just going to hit her cheeks with a little bit of blush. "Can you smile for me"? I'm just going to concentrate her blush just right on the apples of the cheeks just to give her a nice soft, rosy complexion. We're going to use an eye shadow primer. Basically what this does is it adheres the eye shadow to the eye and prevents your eye shadow from creasing and caking. Also to let eye shadow go on a lot easier and blend a lot better. So we're just going to use two shades of eye shadow just for really soft daytime look. So we're just going to start with this lightest color, right here and we're just going to sweep this all over her lid from lash to brow. And we're going to take a slightly darker one and we're just going to work this in her crease to give her eye a little bit of contour. We're going to do just a little bit of lip liner, filling her whole lip with the lip liner and top it off with a little bit of lip gloss. And just a really simple, sophisticated look that can make you look a little bit older.
