Makeup can make the world of a difference. Each makeup utensil has a specific role to help enhance a persons beauty. Take a moment to read about some important makeup items that will be sure to change your appearance.
Blush: Brightens your face and puts an emphasis on bone structure. To apply you lightly brush color from your ears inward and blend well.
Mascara: Brightens the eyes and gives them a lift. It makes you look more awake and alert. For best results, use an eyelash curler before applying mascara. This will make your lashes appear longer than normal. Then look straight ahead when applying mascara, not up or down, this avoids mess on and below the eye lid.
Brows: Your eyebrows are the most expressive feature on the face, and can add emphasis on what the eyes tell emotionally. Keeping your brows groomed (tweezed and brushed) can help apply brow color easier. You begin filling in your brows with short light strokes in the same direction that your hair grows in. The point is to make your brows look as natural as possible with a slight enhancement using brow powder, gel, or pencil. Lightly brush brows in same direction when done applying excess.
Eyeshadow: Dramatizes your eyes, you can use multiple colors to get that special affect. You first need to apply a primer to ensure that the shadow holds its place all day, and does not crease. When applying colors of the shadow, it may not turn out as you expect if you do not blend correctly. Blending is the MOST important step. You must move your brush like windshield wipers for a good 20 seconds to make sure that colors go on smoothly.
Eyeliner: Draws attention to your eyes. If you use white eyeliner on your bottom water line it will make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. If you use darker eyeliners such as black or blue your eyes will appear tighter and closer together. When applying liner work from the the outer corner inward towards your nose with a steady hand so that your line is straight.
Foundation: Helps smoothen out your skin and appear as one even color all around. It is very helpful to wet your beauty blender before smoothing out your liquid foundation.
Powder: Holds together the liquid foundation and gives your face a natural matting feel.
It is important as women, or men to look the part. When you know how to correctly use makeup tools or take a moment to teach yourself it says a lot! You go from looking drab to fab in seconds!
