Below are some makeup tips that no girl should be without! Use organic cosmetics or natural cosmetics for a natural, even application.
To brighten tired eyes:
Banish dark circles around the eye area with liquid concealer. Apply sparingly with a light patting motion, and choose a shade exactly matching your skin tone. Don’t be tempted to try a shade lighter than your complexion – it will only draw attention to the area. For treatment and coverage in one, blend a little concealer with eye cream before applying. Complete your wide awake look with eyeliner; apply to the top lash line only, keeping as close to the lashes as possible. Finally, use a finger pad to gently press a tiny amount of shimmery white or beige eye shadow into the innermost corner of your eye.
It will make your peepers ‘pop’!
To illuminate dull skin:
Give lackluster skin an instant glow with tinted moisturizer. Use in place of your usual moisturizer, or following, if you have very dry skin. Follow with blush; it lends dull complexions a warm, rosy bloom. Apply with a large fluffy brush anywhere the sun would naturally catch your face: cheekbones, temples and the bridge of your nose.
For fuller looking lips:
Use a flannel to gently buff dry, dead skin cells from the lips’ surface and boost blood flow. Then massage in a small amount of lip plumper to plump lips and provide an even base for lip color.
Stick to a light shade of lipstick for the fullest effect as darker shades draw the lips in making them appear smaller. Finish with a slick of lip gloss for high shine and extra volume.
To banish blemishes:
Begin by treating the area with a dab of blemish stick to help heal skin and conceal redness. Follow with a light application of tinted moisturizer for light and even coverage, and set with a light dusting of loose powder.
To hide a troubled area:
Draw attention away from a blemish or uneven lips by playing up your most beautiful feature such as your eyes or lips.
