In part 1 we talked about how to apply our Foundation and blush to look natural. Now we will discuss lipstick and eye make up
So here we go Makeup tips part 2 or ...
"How to apply eye do without looking like you've gone 3 rounds with Joe Frazier"
In other words, don't overdo it. Thin is the word here!
Eyeshadow-there is a rainbow of colors now available, unlike when I grew up, green, and blue were almost everything that you could get (boring!) So have fun and experiment with some tips, but bear in mind.
Keep bright colours only for use at night.
Do not use frosted shadows glitter or metallic, if you're on about 25! You accentuate any hairlines. There is also a theory that particles small glitter can pass through the thin membrane and deposit in the eye lid. (I don't know for sure if this is true, but it is enough to make your eyes water!)
Use dark colors for compact and color for emphasis.
Blend blend blend blend! among the colors. Use a brush or fingers (gently)
Use a lighter color on the inside edge of the eye colors to "open" and darker on outer edge for a dramatic look.
It is better to use no more than two colors at a time (unless you're super smart) be sure to use the same color tone. Warm colours are gold, Taupe and bronze. Pure colors will look more natural.
* Special * tip-do not use an eyeshadow that has the same color as your eyes. Contrast take our your eye color better. For example, if your eyes are blue use a shade of brown or taupe. Brown look fabulous with most colors except Brown.
Mascara-if you only do one thing and then make mascara! Has more impact than all make it.
Start at the root of lashes and move upward. Make sure you include the tiny Cilia at the corners.
Put an extra coat on external angles too. This will make your eyes look "bigger".
Clean the brush with a handkerchief to remove any "blob".
Do not use a comb, Eyelash, use a wand clean (wash your old one and use it)
If you add a second hand, do so before the first dries.
Mascara "go". Replace every 3 months to prevent eye infections.
Don't overdo it. Too your eyelashes stick together and look unnatural.
To widen the eyes, use an eyelash curler-before applying mascara.
If the Cilia are very sparse, try false eyelashes, they can look great when applied correctly!
* Special * Tip-If you have small eyes, do not use mascara on your bottom lashes. This can make your eyes appear smaller.
Only under brows-Pluck your eyebrows to create a good shape. If your eyebrows tends to meet in the Middle, so you can catch here, too, but be careful. A beautician can wax the area for you the first time so you can keep yourself in the future.
If scattered or eyebrows light using a pencil a shade darker than the eyebrows, but not the color of dark hair. Blondes are best using a pencil light brown.
If your eyebrows already looks good, try to add some luster with a slick in Vaseline or pure lip gloss.
Use a pencil and brush to blend at all times.
* Special * Tip-If your eyes are too close together, start the eyebrows more toward the center of the eye. Try this with a pencil in the first place. Do not grasp before you are sure that it is for you!
Lipstick-the best thing I can tell you about lipstick lip is use a brush. Yes, it takes a little longer to apply, but you can also obtain an application of colour and remain inside the lip line.
Make sure that your lips are dry or flaky, use vaseline or cream moisturizing before applying the lipstick.
If your lips are too thin, draw a line just slightly outside of your normal line with a pencil lip liner, lip (attention!)
If you want the lips to be the focal point of your face, use a strong color and less eye make-up.
For long-lasting color that won't come off on your cup of coffee (or the cheek!), apply the lips and the King. Once the stain.
Use a gloss on your lippie for impact!
Practice makes perfect when applying make-up. If you do it often enough, you'll be able to apply make-up in the dark, without a mirror and with both hands tied behind his back (just kidding, but you know what I mean!)
