Women love their makeup and a good portion of us “getting ready” period, is spent putting on numerous products. But makeup enhances the looks, only when done well. So here are 5 makeup tips that will help you get your look right every time!
Match Products to Complexion
From base makeup to skin enhancers, lip-colours and eye-shadows, always go for shades that complement your skin tone. Nothing looks more shabby than wrong-toned foundation, unflattering cheek stains and jarring eyes or lips. Always test products at the sales counter before buying to make sure they are the right choice for your skin.
Always Accentuate One Feature
Whenever you’re doing your makeup, accentuate only one of your features, be it your eyes, lips or cheekbones. If you try and highlight all three features, you’ll probably end up looking like a heavily caked geisha. Drawing attention to just one feature tends to create a soothing look which is striking and glamorous nonetheless.
Be-Aware (beware) of the Weather
Always do your makeup in keeping with the weather conditions outside. If it is hot and humid, use lighter, gel/water-based products. If it is dry and wintery, use hydrating, cream-based ones. And keep blotting paper handy at all times. You don’t want any smudges or sheen to ruin your look, do you?
Use Q-Tips for Correction
What do you do when you make small errors while doing your makeup? Those little smudges? Those squiggly lines? Use Q-tips. Before starting your makeup, dip a Q-tip in makeup remover and keep on your dresser, ready to use whenever you falter. This way, you’ll clean up what’s botched without making a mess or having to re-do everything, all over.
Use Clean Surfaces Only
Any surface you use your makeup on/with need to be clean. So wash your face and hands thoroughly before donning on your products. If you work on unwashed skin, all oil and impurities and dirt will get trapped inside and later cause pimples and blackheads.
Use these makeup tips and you’ll notice the difference, everytime!
