Top Tips on Choosing and Applying Makeup
You have to look young and beautiful. Thankfully, there are tools that can help you achieve this without much hassle. All you have to do is refresh yours skin and use the right makeup and you will literally dazzle. In many cases, women do not know how to use cosmetics correctly and this can turn into a disaster. But you do not have to worry. As long as you use these simple and effective rules for choosing and applying makeup, you will get the results that you want.
Before you apply makeup, you have to make sure that your skin is perfectly moisturized and clean. In this way you will avoid pore clogging and pimples. Remember that makeup should be applied only on perfectly dry skin. Generally, your face has to be prepared for the procedure. If you need to plug your eyebrows, make sure you do it in advance and let your skin recover for at least half an hour.
You have to start by applying a concealer. It should be chosen in line with your foundation. It has to be one tone lighter. You have to apply the concealer carefully only on the spots where it is needed. It is best to use small quantities of it and to spread it using a sponge first and then your fingers. Then you have to apply foundation. It should match the color of your face ideally. It is essential for you not to use a product with dark orange or dark pink undertones, in an attempt to make your fair complexion appear tanned. Put small amounts of foundation on your cheeks and on your forehead and blend the evenly over your face using a soft sponge. It is a good idea for you to apply powder in order to preserve the foundation for longer.
Choosing and applying eye shadow is often the most difficult part. You have to consider the color of your eyes as well as the garment you will be wearing. The occasion for which you are dressing up is also important. Generally, the heavy makeup is not particularly fashionable now, but you might want to put a very dark eye shadow, if you are going to a club. Remember that the hue you choose has to highlight your eyes and not making them look smaller.
It is best to choose eye shadow with three similar shades. One has to be darker, the other medium and the third one should be light. You have to apply the first one on the area along the line of the upper lashers. Cover your lid with the medium eyes shadow and use the fair one for the area under your eyebrow.
The eyeliners are not particularly popular at present, so it is best to opt for an eye pencil. It has to match the color of your mascara. Line carefully the lower lid below the lashes and the upper lid as closely above the lashes as possible. Apply the mascara without pressing your lashes too much. It is best to have two thin coats only.
Choose and apply discreet blush on your cheeks. Your lipstick has to match your complexion and your garment.
