Good makeup isn't when others notice you're wearing makeup, it's when they complement how beautiful you look today. You can enhance your own beauty by executing a couple tried and true makeup tricks. A little bit of makeup can go a long way.
You don't need a personal makeup artist to achieve a flawless face – just some of their insider information!
You Will Need
* Face powder
* Black eyeliner
* Cream-colored eye shadow
* Pencil in your lip shade
* Rosy eyes shadow
* Lip balm
* Clear lip gloss or petroleum jelly
* Lengthening mascara (optional)
* Volumizing mascara (optional)
Step 1: Fill in frown lines
Fill in any laugh lines with highlighter before you apply foundation. It helps create an even base for your makeup.
Step 2: Powder your lashes
Lightly brush your lashes with face powder before applying mascara. The powder and the mascara will form a paste to temporarily thicken your lashes.
Step 3: "Tightline" your lids
Use the makeup-artist trick known as tightlining: Apply black eyeliner underneath upper lash lines and between upper lashes to make your lashes look fuller.
Step 4: Highlight your peepers
Dab a little highlighter or apply a cream-colored eye shadow in the inner corners of your eyes – near the bridge of your nose – and just under your eyebrows, along the brow bone. It will catch the light, making eyes appear wider.
Step 5: Prep your lips
Color bare lips with a lip pencil that matches your natural lip color before applying lipstick; it will help the color adhere. Or, press some rosy eye shadow on top of lip balm for all-day color.
Step 6: Gloss over lip areas
Put a dab of clear lip gloss or petroleum jelly in the indentation in the center of your upper lip and in the center of your lower one; it will make both look plumper. Picture perfect!
