How to apply blusher

 

Hi everyone,

Image result for how to apply blusher

There’s no one correct way to apply blusher. The method use depends on the type of look you want to create.

Most women avoid blusher, but used correctly it can be the best beauty tool you own.

For Natural Healthy glow;

  • Apply Foundation as normal. Smile – where your cheek is naturally at its fattest is where blusher needs to  go to create a natural look.
  • Apply the blusher in a small circle, blending well. For the best results try gel blusher.Powder over the top.

For sexy cheekbones;

  • Using powder blusher, sweep colour in an art following the line of your cheekbone up from the apple of your cheek to your hairline. Keep colour light and blended.
  • Add a little shimmer on the highest point of your cheekbone nearest your eye.

Tips for using blusher 

  • If you are using  powder blush, brush it only one way – going over and over or round and round with the brush creates streaks.
  • When using gel our tint blushes to contour the face, don’t just apply one big blob and try to blend it. Chances are the colour will take more  where it is first applied and you’ll find it hard to even things out. Instead, apply a blob on the apple of the cheek and to smaller blobs graduating up the cheekbone, then blend upwards towards the hairline.
  • Gel or tint blushes are best used on bare skin; They tend to stick on foundation and can be hard to blend.
  • While the shade of blush you choose is generally determined by your skin tone.

False eyelashes

Hi everyone, welcome back 😉

False eyelashes 

False lashes can enhance the loveliest eyes. Full eyelashes can leave you looking like a drag queen, but single lashes can create a natural effect. Select smaller ones for the inside of the eye, and longer ones for the middle.

Applying false eyelashes 

  1. Before you do anything else you need to trim the lash strip to fit your eye.
  2. False lashes should only go where real ones grow.
  3. Measure them against your eye, holding it where your natural lashes end.Removing it from your face, cut the excess off with nail scissor.
  4. Usually a tube of glue is included in a pack when you buy your false eyelashes. Run a small line of it over the edge of the lashes.
  5. Look down in the mirror; using tweezers, start from the outside corner and place the lashes as close to the base of your own lashes as possible.
  6. Gently press with a cotton bud to seal the lashes into place.
  7. Apply eye shadow or liquid eyeliner over the join.

Makeup /face Powder

Hi everyone 😉

Image result for how to apply powder on face

Powder is an important part of applying your foundation, yet women rarely use it other than as hastily applied dab on a shiny nose. Once considered thick and chalky, new powder formulations are feather light and essential for setting makeup. There are two kinds of powder – loose to set your base and pressed or compact to use on its own or for touch-ups during the day. You van use it :

  • Make foundation and concealer stay in place.
  • Make lipstick last longer by gently powdering over the first lipstick application.
  • Unify foundation texture.
  • keep oily secretions at bay and absorb unwanted moisture, although too much can be ageing.

Application tips

  • Leave your foundation to settle for a few minutes before dusting on powder.
  • Dip your brush into the powder, gently blow any excess off the bristles. Work down the face to prevent particles of powder from catching superfluous facial hair and giving an uneven finish. Sweep to blend.

 

Image result for the best loose powder

Choose a correct powder;

  • Always choose a shade that matches your skin.
  • Know your skin type and the coverage level you are looking for before buying a compact powder.
  • If your skin tone is on the lighter side, you can opt for a compact with a pink undertone and one or two shades lighter than your skin tone.
  • Try the product on the face and not on the back of your hand.

Natural makeup look

 

Hi everyone;

The Natural look is probably one of the hardest to achieve, as it needs a light, skilful touch and careful choice of colour. Natural means enhancing your natural look with as little makeup as possible. Use little to no foundation, especially in summer when your  skin has more colour. Warm, earthy , neutral tones work best ; anything from pale vanilla and almond to mid tones like taupe and terracotta to deeper shades like coffee and brown. Colour choice is personal, although redheads look great in brick – browns and brunettes look stunning in mocha! 

Image result for natural makeup look

Moisturize and apply a convincing shade of liquid foundation if necessary. conceal problem areas, making sure you blend carefully. Set concealer and foundation with loose powder. Dust the apples of your cheeks with a soft shade of blusher to create a healthy glow.

Use a shadow brush to apply the lightest shade of eye shadow all over the lid, from the lash line to the eyebrow. Then brush a medium shade of shadow across the entire lid, from the lashes to just above the crease line, and blend. Apply the darkest shade along the lash line as close to the lashes as possible, placing added emphasis on the outer corners.

Line eyes inside the inner rim and around the outer with a soft, brown kajal eye pencil. Apply one or two coats of mascara. Brush eyebrows into shape and define if necessary with eye shadow.  

Image result for natural makeup lips

Define lips with a neutral shade of lip liner pencil and fill with lipstick’ If you wish, slick with gloss, but remember that leaving it off will make your lipstick last longer. 

  • Tip
  • Careful blending is essential. The aim is to give the complexion a healthy glow by using foundation and blusher that subtly enhance your natural skin tone rather than disguise it.
