I woke up this morning with a tired face… The remedy: make up! (And yogurt)
Here are some tips on how to choose your right make up and how to apply it properly:
- Remember to apply the quantities you need and not more!
- For a smoother skin: Mix your foundation with a light SPF moisturizer before applying
- When choosing your eye concealer, pick one with one shade lighter than your skin
- When applying powder on your skin, avoid powdering under the eyes. It can make fine lines, wrinkles or even just tired eyes appear more obvious
- For oily skin, I recommend carrying with you facial oil-blotting sheets. It removes the excess oil and shine without disturbing your makeup.
- When applying your blush make sure to blend your blush into your foundation well or it will tend to look unnatural and add 7 years to your look.
- It is nice to apply two shades of blush. The light one could be used on all the face (if close to your skin color and doesn’t shine) and other darker (or pink) one should be applied to the apple of the cheek. Blend well.(Personally I use 3, one for the whole face, one pink for the cheeks and one bronzer for the forehead nose and cheeks (where the sun normally hits))
- To keep away from getting lipstick on your teeth, place your finger in your mouth and then remove it out gradually with your mouth close. What you spot on your finger is what would have ended up on your teeth.
- When applying your mascara try make it in a diagonal from the inside out. Curled lashed make the eyes pop.
- It’s a misunderstanding that makeup brushes cannot be cleaned and should be changed. You can buy some products sold in the market or simply use baby shampoo to do so. After cleaning, reshape your brushes with your fingers and let dry.
- Remember to check your makeup once in a while. They have a shelf life from 6 months to 4 years (depending on the product and the brand)
