Applying Bronzer All Over
That sun kissed glow is great for any skin tone. We can achieve this without tanning by using bronzer on the skin, but a lot of people make the mistake of applying too much. You’ll notice that some people would look like they reincarnated from a star due to the amount of bronzer all over their skin. This product was created to give you a subtle glow, not an overall tan. Focus your application on the muscle line of your body, such as the v line of the hips, collar bone, cheek bone, jaw, forehead and sides of the
Using a Brow Pencil
Due to the sudden rise of liquid, gel and powder brow products, the brow pencil seems to be obsolete. The unnatural line and color of brow pencils seem too overdone. Using gel or powder products can give a more spot on brow line and natural shape. We’re not telling you to throw away your brow pencil though. If you want to achieve the same effects with a brow pencil, use an
old mascara wand or eyebrow brush to soften the lines and give it a fading effect.
One of the few fall outs of using powder eyeshadow is the fallout. You create the risk of ruining your makeup. You can prevent this by applying your whole eye makeup first before applying foundation. No need to increase the risk of smudging your makeup. When you’re at of the house and notice some powder on your cheeks, use some clear tape to remove it.
There has been a lot of emphasis on eyebrows now a days. Big brows, thin brows, bushy eyebrows, dyed brows and so on. All of these are great ways to add emphasis to the face, but not all of us are given the ability to pull all of it off. So, before going on any major eyebrow makeover think it through. Once you get your desired eyebrow, go to a professional. Eyebrows are very prominent in our face, leaving it unkempt can affect your whole appearance. Just adding powder, plucking some stray hair or filling it in can make a huge difference.
Avoid looking like you applied the whole bottle of foundation on
your face by creating small tiny dots around your face (mostly on the center) instead of adding it all at once. This can help you blend it better and create a thin base. You can always add more product if it appears to sheer. You can remove the excess foundation by soaking a clean sponge and dabbing it away.
This is a common and embarrassing experience. Imagine walking around work or school not knowing that you look like a raccoon due to your mascara or eyeliner falling down to your cheeks. This is a common problem for people that have oily skin or sweats a lot. You can prevent this from happening by dabbing your face with a blotting paper every few hours or applying an oil free concealer under your lashes. Set the concealer using a translucent powder and repeat this process half way through your day. The concealer will act as a barrier preventing your makeup from travelling to y our cheeks.
