Makeup Tricks That Actually Work

If you feel bored with your looks and are wondering if something can be done to have fresh and eye-catching looks, you should try some new makeup tricks.

A new method of putting on lipstick, or maybe a new color that you have never tried, or a different eye shadow can introduce subtle changes in your appearance. You will wonder why you had not thought of doing something like this before.

Creatures of Habit

We are all creatures of habit and continue to use the same methods of doing something that has produced results in the past. The old saying of ‘if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it’ is quite applicable in this case. We will continue to use the same color of lipstick, maybe a different shade once in a while, but never will we try a totally different color. We will continue to wear the same dress styles that we wore when we were in our twenties, even though our appearance has changed. The same goes for our hairstyles and our use of makeup.

Try a Different Makeup

One of the changes you can make is to change your foundation. Use a powder foundation if you have been using a liquid foundation for ages. You will find that your face looks different and the shine is now under control. Or better yet, use no foundation. Instead, use a moisturizer that will nourish your skin and can be refreshed as often as needed.

Try a New Lipstick

A new color in lipstick could give your lips a different look. People accustomed to your old color would note a difference in the size and shape of your lips. Forming an O with your lips and then applying the lipstick would make them look fuller, if you have thin lips.

Other Makeup Tricks

A new way of applying mascara to make your eyes appear bigger or a new way of caring for your eyelashes could make you look more glamorous. An eyelash curler could do wonders for your eyelashes, if you’re patient in its use. One activity that should be a part of your makeup tricks is to exfoliate often. This will get rid of the dead cells and your foundation would have a better base upon which to rest.
