Your lips are defined by lip liner hence, heavily-lined lips will instantly date your looks. And if you love to use lip liner then, use a natural curvature of your mouth to keep the look modern and de-emphasize any feather lines around your mouth.

Harsh lipstick

You might think that a bold lip color will make you look fuller, but the opposite is true. As we age, the lips become thinner and the harsh lipstick shades make them look thinner. Choose a neutral color that better suits your skin tone.

Only lining your bottom lashes

Applying eyeliner to the top should be mandatory which brightens your face and keep your eyes look lively and awake.
