6 makeup tips and tricks to a fab, more beautiful you
1. Clean your canvas
Since make-up is the palette of your face, make sure you have clean, clear skin before and after putting on the colors. Dirt and excess oil on your face may cause you those unwanted zits and blemishes so make sure you have a facial wash, toner, and moisturizer ready. If you are on the run, you can also use handy wet wipes to make sure you have the perfect slate to start on. These skin care tips might add to the work-up, but it would surely save you time off zapping the zits out later on and of course, periodic retouching.
2. Foundation or BB Cream?
The use of coverage products for your face is definitely not one of the numerous beauty tips you should ignore. Besides priming your makeup, it also provides protection for your skin. If you are attending a gala night or a romantic date, you might want to use the foundation for longer coverage as compared to BB creams which is better for protection than a makeup base.
3. Easy flow on the brows
Don’t know what color to use for your brows? Look up and check your hair color. Your brow color should be a shade lighter than your hair. Once you have your eye pencil ready, draw a light outline on your brows then fill it with gentle feather strokes. Tap on some shimmer or a little concealer below your brow bone for a more polished look. Remember these tips and defining your eyebrows will go a long way!
4. Lines are fine
Eyeliners are surely a girl’s best friend next to lipsticks when it comes to makeup. They can automatically change the look of your eyes from classy to sassy. If you have ample time to prepare, you can go by using liquid eyeliner. This is a better choice for a more dramatic look and longer-lasting effect while the eye pencil, though it can easily smudge, a high-quality product should do wonders for your casual, day-to-day affairs.
5. Blush Away!
A face without blush takes out the life in your natural beauty, so it’s really important that you know what shade of blush fits you before making those cheeks rosy. You just need to remember the basic matches for blush color: fair skin – pink; medium skin – peach; dark skin – tangerine. These are just the basic beauty tips but you can always do a trial and error on which shade really looks good on you. If you’re using powder, make sure to pat off excess powder from the brush before sweeping it from your cheekbone to your temple. For a dewy look, you can use cream-based blush.
6. Just for Lips
If you are in a hurry and there’s one makeup tool you shouldn’t forget – it’s your lipstick! This little stick of color can surely do your face wonders! Find the right shade of color depending on your mood. The trick is to always have a set of light and dark lipstick ready for any kind of day or event and you’re ready to go!
