It’s always best to start with a clean face. Remove any makeup if you slept last night with a makeup on your face. You may use makeup remover or mild baby oil. You can also wash your face earlier before. If you try to put on makeup over old makeup, it will be cakey and will look more unnatural. After washing your face, put on some moisturizer to keep skin from drying. If you have some blemishes, pick up your concealer and dab some of it, pat it, but don’t rub, until it’s well blended. Cover face with liquid foundation. Choose color that is close to your skin tone. You may use your finger tips and apply it on upward stroke (forehead and downward stroke (chin). Make sure that you extend it on your jaw line so it will not look like you’re wearing a mask. If you have tinted moisturizer on hand, you may use it and skip the foundation. Put on some blusher to give you a defined look, or if you want a sun-kissed tone, use bronzer. Apply in on your apples, the circles that form when you try to smile. Do it in upward stroke. If you want to add some contour and depth, use highlighter. You want to look natural, skip eye shadow. But if you can’t go out without it, try using shades of brown.

And finally, add color to your lips.

Some women prefer lip gloss and lip balm. Lip balm makes the lips soft and flaky that lipstick and lip gloss can cause both. But if you want to wear lipstick, choose nude colors.

High End Cosmetics

Where can I find high end cosmetics?

If you are planning to own one of the most paid and upscale cosmetic products that is worth buying a buck? You have to do some serious researches online. Look for online sellers that offer wholesale. With that, you can have the upmarket product that you want in a low price. But, it is not as easy as you think. This top quality and sophisticated makeup are only sold to distributors- appointed distributors. The manufacturers of these products won’t sell or distribute cosmetics to small businesses. Often times, they don’t need advertisements or promotions of their products because they no longer need it since the demand is above high.

How will I know if it is authentic?

If you found a store that sells and offers high end makeup at a cheaper price, you have to be wary. You may encounter sellers that sell bulk products at a price lower than the expected. In such cases, the products might be fake, damaged and already expired. Just an advice; if you’re thinking to buy bulk orders and make the products as a gift or want to sell it, make sure that the seller uses traceable payment method. Don’t go for cash transfer. Also, don’t order large quantities right away, start with small orders so the risk will be minimized. A seller that shows pictures of products, states that product condition and previous payments or transactions made by customers then it is expected that the seller is genuine. Genuine sellers should also have their contact number posted for easy negotiation.

High end cosmetic products worth splurging on

Dior skin airflash spray foundation- this product is a bit pricey, so use it only during occasion.

Dior skin forever compact powder-  I love how this compact powder can be used in two ways. It can work as a pressed powder and at the same time a bronzer which makes it convenient since I don’t have to carry two different make up in my bag and it comes in compact form. If you want to use it as a bronzer, choose the darker shade.

If you want this, you can find it on online stores such as eBay, Sephora and Amazon.

Gold Eyeshadow

We see models walk down the ramp, stage, and aisle and do their photo shoots wearing that glittery, shimmery gold eye shadow. They look goddess. Have you ever thought of yourself wearing such color but is not sure if it will look good on you or worse, you’ll look like a clown. We’ve got you these helpful and essential tips below on how to wear it right.

First thing you need to do is to clean your face. Never out makeup on a dirty face. Wash face with soap and water. Use a fluffy clean towel and pat dry your face. Next put on moisturizer, your concealer and foundation. Now, let’s work on with your eyes. If you have primer on hand, apply it on eyelid up to the brow bone. Applying primer before your eye shadow helps the eye makeup last longer and prevent smudging and creasing. But this is just optional. You may skip it if you want. Choose medium shade of gold to be applied on eyelids. Use your eye shade brush. Next step, pick the darker shade of gold and apply it on eye creases. You may use the brush with medium shade or an angled brush when applying. Blend it towards the outer edge of eyes if you don’t like beady and teeny look. Keep blending until the demarcation line between two shades of eyeshadow is no longer visible. The lightest shade of gold that you picked will then be applied on the upper side of eyelid. Start from the crease going to the eyebrows. Remember to blend it well. Now let’s move with your lash line. Apply medium shade on lower lash line. Darker shade of gold is applied on the outer eye corner of the lower lash line. You may apply eyeliner, preferably in the hue of brown, charcoal, navy blue and of course black. Finish your eye makeup with lots of mascara to make it look thicker, or if you want, you can wear false lashes too.

Choosing gold eyeshade

Though you can apply eyeshadow using fingertips, avoid using finger when you’re wearing gold eyeshade. Your fingertips may have excess eyeshadow and if you accidentally touch other parts of your face and will make you look messy.

When wearing gold eyeshadow, it is best to keep it light and simple. Don’t overdo your eye makeup, or should I say the whole makeup itself. You will end up looking like a clown.

If you want to have a smokey eye effect, apply more darker shade of eyeshadow on eye crease.

Shimmery shadows can accentuate your wrinkles.

Remember, the key in achieving and making it more look natural is blending. Always blend your makeup well.

If you have picked the right colors, you will notice that your eye color will pop, and will look that it glows on its own.

Sparkly and glittery eye shadows are ideal for teenagers. Pure gold shimmery eyeshadow are for adults.

Have a mirror in front of you and tilt it a little backwards so you can have full view of what you’re doing and how you are doing.

If it happens that there are eye shadows that fall off your face, don’t wipe it off with sponge. Grab a cleansing cloth and wrap around your finger, dab it slightly, then take a dry tissue, wrap it around your finger and dab lightly until it dries.

Always use natural light when working, unless it’s night time.
