Skin care necessities

Hi everyone, welcome back

As you know, there is no good makeup without good skin. Makeup should enhance your natural beauty, not mask it. I really like to take care of my skin every day…. the better you take care of your skin, the better you look.

Here are some tips to have good skin:

A good night sleep mean good skin health. Getting a good night sleep will help to clear up skin.

Water is really important for your skin, drink water hydrate your skin, water is essential for your body. Whether it’s drinking eight glasses a day, washing twice a day or hydrating whenever you need it – water is crucial….

Sunscreen

To avoid wrinkles, sunburn, brown spots, protect your face with a sun protection, even a basic foundation creates some protection from the sun’s rays.

Take it of 

Remove your makeup. Leaving makeup on overnight clogs pores and is probably the worst thing you can do to your skin.

Healthy food

Cheeks / Blush application

Hi everyone, welcome back

Applied right, blusher gives a healthy flush. It energizes a tired face in seconds and creates wicked cheekbones.

The plethora of colours available makes choices difficult, but sticking to rosy pinks and peaches works well for most women. These shades enhance natural skin tone.

The point of blusher is to add colour to the face, not to reshape it!

You have so many different ones in the market: 

Powder blush – Easy to control and blend, it’s the most popular choice, especially for oil skin … 

Cream blush – good for dry and sun- damaged skin 

Gel Blush – Is great for giving a natural – looking glow to bare skin. 

Application :

Find the apple of your cheeks – Simply smile. Blush looks best when applied right on top of the cheekbones.  

Starting at the point on your cheek directly below the middle of your eye. If you mistakenly apply too much blush, wipe the excess off with a tissue before you blend. 

Blend the blush Swirl the colour onto your cheeks in circular, outward motions and blend upward towards your temple, keeping it fuller in the cheek area. 

 

Common mistakes:

  • Blush that is too shimmery can leave you looking ashen and grey. 
  • Not blending enough can result in a horizontal stripe across cheeks. 
  • Muddy or grey tones can leave the skin looking dirty. 
  • Blue and purple tones can make the skin look bruised.

It is no use starting a makeup without first taking care of the skin, the dirt makes it difficult to penetrate the products and produce the oil, so do not give up the trio: soap + tonic + moisturizer. After cleansing, wipe with a sunscreen and begin with a makeup.

2- USE PRIMER

Primer will help make the makeup last longer, it is the key to your makeup stay intact, not to mention that it reduces oiliness, camouflage dilates the pores and softens the lines of expression. Always apply after sunscreen and before foundation. The ideal is to use primers specific to each region: skin, eyes and lips, ok?!

3- WATER-PROOF PRODUCTS

Use mascara, eyeliner and waterproof eye pencil.

4- FINISH WITH FIXING SPRAY

To help keep all makeup in place, use a fixing spray . Keep an eye on choosing the right product according to your skin type.

Top 5 tips for using foundation

Hi everyone , today I’ll  talk about foundation….

Image result for applying perfect foundation

Applying the foundation flawlessly is not an easy task. To achieve the perfect coverage and a glowing look, there are basic methods of applying foundation.

Top 5 tips 

  • Never test foundation on your hand – it’s always a different colour from your face. Always apply it to your jawline. the right shade for you is he one that disappears into your skin.
  • if you can’t decide between two foundations shades choose the lighter one, as darker foundations create more obvious tidemarks.
  • You’re wearing too much foundation if you can’t see any of the pores on your skin. Your natural texture is supposed to show through a little.
  • If your makeup starts to shine, use blotting paper rather than reapplying powder, which can often start to look too heavy.
  •  Apply moisturizer five minutes before you start  your makeup. All bases will go on much smoothly if your skin is well hydrated. Tissue off any excess -while hydrated skin is good for foundation, greasy skin will make it slip and slide.
