Face Lift Makeup Tips

Be sure to consult with your physician about when you can go back to a regular skin care and makeup regime. You want to make sure that all of the stitches have been removed and that you are not running the risk of getting anything into the wounds.

The most important thing to remember is be gentle. Because of the changes that were made during the face lift some you may feel extra sensitivity in certain places, especially near the incision sites. When you add foundation, gently smooth it over your skin with gently motions and without pressing too hard. If you had any work done around your eyes, do not use your hands for makeup application. Only use tools and brushes and be careful.

Minimal Makeup

You are probably so eager to show off your new look and it is completely understandable. After a face lift, you are presenting a whole new you to the world. Make sure that you use makeup in moderation. Your skin can now speak for itself. With the firm look and reduced wrinkles, you may be able to go with less concealer, less foundation and less powder. You don’t want to cover up what has been done or detract from it with overwhelming makeup.

Choose an Area to Highlight

Choose one area that you really want to show off and make it stand out. For most women, this can be the eyes or the mouth. With a face lift, these areas are looking better. Your eyes may be more open and attractive and the lines around both places may be reduced. Keep in mind: if you wear a lot of makeup around your eyes, stick with something simple on the lips. If you are going all out with lip liner, lipstick, and a gloss you may want to tone down the eye makeup. You don’t have to try to hard to get noticed. The surgery will guarantee that you consistently get a second look.

Being Comfortable In Your Own Skin

When you look in the mirror after a face lift, you may not quite recognize the woman that you see. It will take a little getting used to. Use makeup as a tool to show off your new look, but also to give you and extra measure of confidence. You have chosen to make a change in your appearance and you should enjoy every minute of it.
