Beauty bloggers are always posting on how to prolong and avoid the whole ageing skin burden and here I am doing the complete opposite..

Me and Liquid Latex have a very love/hate relationship but when it comes to ageing, it's my best friend!

Have you ever been watching TV or films and seen your favourite actor age 30 years overnight? Its all in the power of make up & im going to show you how it's done.

First off, Liquid Latex is dermatological leg tested however it can cause some allergic reactions. So before using this product, a skin test needs to be carried out at least 24 hours in advance simply by placing a slight bit of the product either on the back of your ear or the bend of your arm as these are the thinnest skin areas so if a rection did occur,it wouldn't be too serious.

The method of ageing this way is simple. All you need is three simple things
1) liquid latex - available at some fancy dress shops or online at Amazon.
2) latex sponges - these can be picked up easily at your local drugstore or even a pound shop.
3) hair dryer!

So the way to do this is divide the face into several sections such as forehead,cheeks & chin. And work one area at a time. Let's say you start with the forehead. You need to stretch the skin so it's tight and dab the latex on with the sponge in an even layer, then blast the layer with a hair dryer on a cool setting to speed the process up enduring the skin is pulled tight (you might want to ask a friend to blast while you hold the skin). After the first layer is dry,add a second layer using the same method & maybe a third or fourth layer depending on the age you're wanting to go. Once all the layers are done, let go of the stretched skin and you will notice the wrinkles that the latex has created. Once this has been done on every section of the face,you'll look as if you've aged 39 years overnight!
