Apply concealer Correctly

Hi everyone, welcome back

We all would love to have naturally flawless and glowing skin, but we don’t. Like it or not, the stress of hectic work schedules, the build-up of pollution in the environment, poor eating habits and unhealthy lifestyles all take a harmful toll on your skin. Considering how delicate our skin and its complexion are, they are highly sensitive to any and all of these things.

Generally there are two ways of applying concealer. The first method is to dot your whole face, especially the areas you want covered, and gently run your concealer brush over your face blending these dots with your skin in outward strokes. This needs to be done with a light hand and many women simply use their index finger to blend the dotted concealer with their skin, in order to give their whole face an even and neat complexion. Many other women use their concealer to only cover their facial flaws, and hence only dab some on their problem areas alone, blending it slightly with their surrounding skin.

Having established that, it is good to know that such concealers also come in various colours and shades to battle specific skin problems. For example, a green cover stick works the best when applied to red areas of your skin, such as on and around pimples and red veins that can be commonly seen around your nose. A purple shade cover stick works the best on yellow or discolored areas of your skin such as pigmentation marks, while an orange concealer stick generally works the best on areas with a bluish tinge such as those dark under eye patches. Your concealer may also have a blue or pink shade. Blue counteracts orange tones typically caused from uneven or excessive tanning or self-tanning where a pink shade covers green areas such as green veins.

When using a corrector concealer with shades of green, purple, orange, pink or blue, think of the colour wheel. To cancel out a certain color you should use the opposite color on the color wheel e.g. you would use green on red areas because the opposite colour of red is green on the color wheel.

  • The Corrector Concealer Quad is used on areas such as dark circles, pigmentation marks, pimples, scars and under-eye circles.
  • Use your green concealer on any red areas such as red veins or pimples.
  • Use your purple concealer on any yellow areas such as pigmentation marks.
  • Use your orange concealer on areas with a bluish color such as dark under eye circles or patches.

 

There are numerous kinds of concealers available in the market and you must select the one friendliest to your skin. For example, if you have oily skin then a gel based cover stick or water based one would suit you well, and for dry skin a creamier stick would work well.

Makeup – which colour suits you!

Image result for makeup which colour suits you

Stand in front of any beauty counter and you’ll see there are hundreds of eye, lip and nail colours to choose from. Which you pick can make a difference — a shade that’s wrong for you can make you look pale and washed out; on mature skins it can highlight wrinkles and age you by 10 years. Knowing how to choose the right hues for you is vital to helping yourself look your best.

The good news is you can wear pretty much any colour you want, so long as you pick the right shade. To do this you need to know two things. The first is your hair  colour. This shows you the depth or brightness of shade that will flatter you best – the lighter your hair ; the lighter the shade that will suit you. the second is your skin tone. this helps reveal what shades of a colour will suit your best.

Eyes makeup

Hi everyone and welcome back …….

Primer your canvas. An artist doesn’t just start slathering paint onto fresh canvas, just as a makeup artist doesn’t work on a surface that hasn’t been prepared. Prime the ares with the light concealer or foundation and a dusting of translucent powder to control oiliness and help set the colour. 

Apply a base shade. Pick a light dark, and a medium shade. It’s easier if they’re in the same colour family – like bone, taupe, and dark brown – but they don’t have to be. And bear in mind, if you are using multiple colours, powdered shadow is much easier to control because it layers and blends easily.

Shade for contrast. the medium shade is the one that’s going to bring out the colour of your eyes, so look for a suitably contrasting shade. Green eyes  will stand out when shades with browns and hint of red; blue eyes are complemented by purple shades. And brown eyes work with any colour.

TIPS 

  • If the eye makeup you are planning is complicated, do your foundation afterwards. That way you don’t have to worry about stray flecks of glitter ruining your foundation.
  • When working with a few colours, always start with the lightest shades first.
  • Before applying shadow, always give the brush a little flick, or blow gently to remove excess powder.
  • Blend well; you should never be able to tell where one colour begins and ends.
  • Use a highlighter on any part of the eye area that you want to bring out. put a dot on the inner corner of the eye to make eyes look big and bright, and a dab under the arch of the brow to emphasize the brows, if necessary.
  • Don’t over emphasize the brow bone; most time the absence of colour is enough of a highlight. I see many makeup artists using very pearlized or white shadows as  highlighter and it really creates an artificial effect best avoided.
