How to Apply Makeup

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.

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.

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.
