Applying makeup can be a tricky business if you do not know the subtleties of the art. Below you will find tips on how to successfully create a beautiful image for yourself.
Concealer is only one way to hide the small skin imperfections. In order to perfectly conceal the problem areas, try using lipstick in soft pink tones, regardless of your natural skin type or complexion.
Going overboard with the tweezing can lead to exhaustion of the eyebrows and create “bald patches”, in which hair does not grow back. Use gel containing wheat protein to stimulate their growth.
Morning showers are great but successive exposure to warm water and cold air can make the skin tough. It is one of its protection mechanisms. Always hydrate your skin after taking a shower. Do not rub when towel-drying it. Use alpha hydroxy acid containing lotions.
Keep your eyes open when applying eye-liner. This way the lines will not become crooked. At first apply three firm strokes – to the outer corner of the eye, the middle and then the inner corner. Connect the three lines with one more layer of eye-liner.
In order to create a full lip effect, use the following trick: with a concealer brush apply bronze face powder two shades darker than your skin tone to the outside of your lip line. Then cover the lips with golden, coral or peach gloss.
In order to prevent eye-shadows from becoming runny, dry the surface of the eyelids as much as you can before applying them. Use foundation or compressed powder as a base.
The skin on the neck ages differently than facial skin and is not as easily influenced by scrubs and laser therapy. Experts say that the best thing you can do for it is to sit up with your neck straight.
If you want your eyes to look larger, forget about dark eye-shadows. Begin with applying skin-colored foundation and add shadows two tones darker than that, smudging them with your fingertips up to the arch of the eyebrows.
If the label of one product promises a certain visible effect, which you cannot see after the first few applications, then don’t use it.
If you have not had enough sleep, your face will certainly reflect that. Nothing refreshes the face like the appropriate blush. Use cream blush with red or pink undertones. Apply it to the protruding part of the cheek bone. Top it off with powder.
