How to Apply Makeup

apply-makeupWhen you are applying your makeup, it should bring out and enhance the true person that you really are. If it is not applied the correct way, your natural beauty won’t even shine through and you could become ugly and someone that you’re not. The proper tools of the trade are required for the perfect look. After all, why take the time to apply it if you are not going to do it right?

One of the important things that most ladies do not realize is that you need to have the proper light in order for your makeup to turn out right. If the light is too dim, you will look completely different once you are outside. You will also want to have everything ready that you are going to need, such as brushes, puffs, etc.

Your next step is the base. The foundation can get a little tricky without the proper know how. If you are looking for quick and easy, go with a compact foundation. It will eliminate the step of setting it with a powder. But, liquid seems to be the one of choice for most ladies. Choose the shade that matches your skin and be sure to check the label if you have any sensitivities.

When it comes to your blush, choose a color that matches your cheeks when they are rosy. Apply following the cheekbone up to your hairline. Be sure to tap the brush to remove the excess before applying. This will keep you from over doing it and from making a mess in the sink.

The eyes are one of the most important parts of your makeup. Your choice of colors will define your eyes along with some eyeliner and mascara. Choose subtle colors and sweep from the inside corner of your eyes, moving to the outside corner. And don’t forget your lips. Use something light for a summery color and use dark colors for a more dramatic look.
