Moisturize Facial Skin
A well hydrated skin can take years off your actual age. Make up should never be applied on dry, flakey skin as it can destroy your whole look. Make up applied on dry facial skin can give you a haggard appearance. Take time to cleanse your skin with a mild, soap free cleanser or a face wash.
Next gently dot your face with non greasy moisturizing lotion. Work the lotion into your skin using gentle circular motion. Stay away from heavy face creams as it can give you a greasy appearance.
Start off with your foundation. Depending on your specific skin type you can opt for liquid or powder based foundation. Slightly tinted liquid foundation can give even coverage to your skin and miraculously hide all the flaws. Mineral foundation can also be applied as it is hypo- allergic, controls excess sebum production and is long lasting.
Foundation in a shade closest to your natural skin color should be applied on the face and the neck. To get even coverage use a wedge shaped sponge to apply the foundation. If your foundation looks cakey or patchy remove the entire foundation an start all over again.
The eyes are the most alluring aspect of ones face. Dark circles and under eye bags can mar the natural beauty of your eyes. A liquid concealer is a potent makeup contrivance to hide dark circles, under eye bags and skin discolorations. A creamy concealer should be dotted around the under eye region. Work the concealer into the skin with fingertips.
After applying concealer add some sexy splashes of eye shadow. Party make up is all about bold colors. So stay away from eye shadow in shades like pale pink and taupe. Experiment with metallic eye shadow colors to make your peepers look really alluring.
Lighter shades of eye shadow should be applied on the inner corner of the eyelid as well as the area under your brows. Darker shades of eye shadow should be applied near the lash line and around the outside corners of the eyelids.
Go heavy on the mascara. Apply at least three coats of mascara on your lower and upper lashes. Lash enhancing mascara can make your lashes appear sky high. If you have extremely sparse lashes apply a thin coat of eyeliner staring from the inner corner of the upper eyelids just above lash line. Extend the line all the way to the outer corner of your eyelid. This can create the illusion of thicker lashes.
Accentuating the cheek bones is a must for women with rounded cheekbones. With make up products like bronzers you can create the illusion of high cheek bones. To get chiseled cheeks apply bronzer on top of the cheekbones.
For a party apply darker shades of bronzer is warm shades like cocoa. The bronzer should be traced along the cheekbones in broad diagonal lines. To get an even more chiseled look apply a touch of blush and highlighter along with the bronzer.
For show stopper lips apply matte lipstick in bold shades like red, plum or wine colors. Blot the excess lip color with a tissue. Now apply an even coat of lip gloss in a shade similar to the lip stick. Finally, outline your lips with a lip liner. The lip liner should be in a shade which is slightly darker than the actual lip color. For a fuller appearance, apply a hint of glitter.
