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.

Povezana slikaTip: the eye shade that you’re going to wear should be in contrast with the color of your eye. Next thing to work on is your brows. If you’re brows are already well defined, then good for you. Eyebrows are the most hard to make look more natural. It’s best to use brown eyebrow pencil. Choose good quality so it won’t smudge. Curl your lashes. You may heat up your curler for 3 seconds using hair blower because it holds curl better. Just make sure to check before using, it may be too hot. Use mascara to make lashes longer. Work on your upper lash first, hold the wand horizontally and wiggle it from roots to tips. For the lower lash, hold the wand vertically and do the downward stroke. 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. To make it last longer, put on your lip balm first, then your lipstick. When you wear lipstick, start form center of lips going out. Be sure that reach the edge of your lips and be careful not to stain your teeth. To have that pouty lip, dab some shiner in the center of your lips.

Eyeshadow Tips on How to Wear it like a Pro

If you want your eyes to stand out, you need to have great skills when you do your eyeshade makeup. It’s a little bit frustrating when our eye makeup doesn’t turn out the way we want it to be. We’ve got some helpful tips here below that can help you improve your eye makeup skills.

Do’s and don’ts when wearing eye shadow

First thing you have to consider is the color you will be picking. It doesn’t have to be the same with your eye color. What is important is that whatever color you choose, it has to match your eye color and will look great on you. For example, if you green eyes, try using shades of purple and see which shade looks perfect on you. Another, if you have brown eyes, since brown is neutral, any color should look best on you. Another thing, when choosing colors, it has to coordinate with what you wear. Common mistake of women is that they use same color of shadow with that they wear. Never ever do those, you’ll end up looking like a clown. Also, it has to fit the occasion that you’re attending to. Don’t wear too much makeup during business meeting, and wear little to no make on your first date.

Wearing eyeshadow

Choose three colors of your choice. Categorize them into three, light, medium and dark. Light colors are the first to be applied. It has to cover entire eyelid going to your brow bone. Next, wear the medium shade, apply it on the crease. Start from the outer corner of the eye going inside. Remember to blend it well with the first color. Don’t put too much color in the inside corner of the eyes, it will look gaudy and loud. Then the last to be applied is the dark shade. Apply it on the upper lash line and on the lower lash line. It needs a little practice to master this step and leaking of eyeshadow is just normal part of the process. All you need to do is to conceal it by applying medium shade of eyeshadow.

Tips for keeps

Always start your eyeshadow makeup with a base or eye primer. Though you may skip this, it is best not to because it helps the eye shadow to wear and last longer throughout the day. If fine lines are already visible, stay away from shimmery eyeshades, it will just make fine lines more visible.

How to Do the Perfect Eyebrow Makeup

Eyebrow shapes can affect how other people make and give their impression to you. A perfectly shaped and arched eyebrow “wows” everyone. Working on eyebrows is one of the hardest things, especially if you have few to no hair at all. It can sometimes be frustrating seeing your face with no eyebrow hair at all. This article can help you shape and define your eyebrows perfectly.

Materials needed

  • Eyebrow pencil
  • Eyebrow powder
  • brush
  • Tweezers
  • Eyebrow razor
  • Eyebrow stencil

Shaping your eyebrows

Eyebrow MakeupAlways start with clean and dry eyebrows. You will be needing your eyebrow pencil, hold it straight beside your nose to see where your brow should start, mark that point, then angle it outwards, about 45 degrees to check where it should end. Don’t forget to mark that point too. Tweeze hair strays. Use brow razor to shave fine hairs that are too fine to be tweezed. Using a spoolie brush (it looks like the brush in your mascara wand), brush brows so you’ll see uneven hair parts. Trim it with scissors. There will always be unruly hairs, brush it down suing spoolie brush and trim it again. Now that you’re done cleaning and removing hair strays, we can now move and work to start filling your brows. There are two ways to start your brows. First is to line the underside of your brow and the other is to use short dash strokes to fill in sparse areas. Next, fill your brows with a brow powder using a brush. You can start on the arch of your eyebrow. Then without adding any product on your brush, continue outlining your brow up to the edge. Once you’re done, tap extra powder and start lining the upper side of the brow. Don’t make it to dark and harsh. It is best to make it light to look more natural. Use your spoolie brush to blend colors well. If you have a clear brow gel, you may use it for unruly hair. You can also use hairspray and spoolie brush as an alternative. Apply shimmery eye shadow on your brow bone to give your eyebrow makeup a clean look. Remember to blend it well so it will not look like a rectangular patch. Finish it with bold black mascara and you’re done!

Additional tip:

  • For more dramatic look, use bolder shades of eye pencil.
  • If brow powder is not available, you may use eye shadow similar to your brow color.

Cosmetic Store Outlet

Nowadays, men also wear makeup to look better and hide the impurities brought by dirt, pollution and stress. It is an advantage, not only for girls, but also for boys, to have good and clear skin. There are numbers of cosmetics that can help you look even better. They can be found on department store isles, drug stores, online stores and even specialty stores.

Good buy cosmetics

Most of us, when we buy cosmetic products, we do the trial and error method to see if the product will work for us; choosing perfect eye shade, lip color and the likes. This can be a little costly because at times, our skin color changes caused by time, aging and some illnesses. I recommend buying makeup on specialty stores instead on department stores. When you say specialty stores/vendors/traders, this means that the products they sell are specific to one brand. When you buy on this store, you get number of advantages. You don’t have to trial and error and guess matching when picking the right shade for you. This store often times offer services and recommends the shades that will perfectly complement your complexion, aside from that it also saves your time deciding which color to pick. The only drawback on specialty stores is that the items can sometimes be expensive compared to products sold on department stores and drug stores. Two of the most well known specialized brands are Avon and Blair. They come in brochures for easy browsing of their products. Sometimes, there are individuals who come over your door and offer such products. Though they are expensive, the quality and satisfaction they give can equate to same.

Cosmetics are now available at different department stores, numbers of outlets, variety of outlets and even online stores. Another option in buying makeup products is to buy directly from the manufacturer.

Cosmetic buying is highly individual

The options mentioned above can vary. We should also take into consideration the prices of each product. It depends on every person where they want to go makeup shopping. If they want to have options to chose from, hey could go over the drug store, department store aisles and cosmetics section. But if they don’t want their time to be wasted just choosing and deciding which shade to wear, then probably specialty stores should be their place. If you are a type of person where you want a relaxed shopping and wants the product to be delivered right in front of your door, then you would probably go for online shopping. Anything and anyone can have the best buy and best way when it comes to cosmetic purchasing because it all depends on an individual’s preference.
