The Importance of Toner and Concealer
Toner and concealer form the anchor for your cosmetics because they’re able to make your skin look smoother as long as you’re careful to purchase an oil-free product that offers light-reflecting properties (i.e. a pearlescent powder) or one that contains various shades and thus will help with redness, uneven toning and dark shadows. Using toner will prepare your skin to put on other products, such as foundation as it helps them to last longer. Make sure to cleanse your face then apply toner all over it, including around your nose, eyelids and underneath your eyes as well.
Flatter Your Face with Foundation
Whenever you’re ready to choose a foundation, make sure that it’s one that states that it is long lasting and contains oil absorbers (they’ll help keep your skin looking fresh). Once you have your product you’ll want to use either a brush or a sponge to apply it with. Make sure to use a small amount (you can always add more if necessary) and start by your nose and smooth it outwards.
Some of the best foundations that are available on the market today include:
1. Max Factor’s All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation allows you to apply foundation, concealer and primer all at once for a long-lasting look.
2. Clinique’s Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfecting Make Up is a lightweight finish that will provide full coverage without clogging your pores.
3. Diorskin’s Nude Natural Glow Radiant Foundation adjusts to all complexions, leaving a shine-free, glowing face.
4. Giorgio Armani’s Maestro Fusion make up will hydrate your face while giving you day long coverage. It also adapts to your face’s tones and textures.
5. Estee Lauder’s Double Wear foundation comes in a lot of different shades, all of which stay in place all day long.
The Finishing Touch
To finish off your face with a healthy, natural look, you’re going to need to use some blush that matches your skin tone and coloring. Oftentimes you’ll find a product that features several shades in the same compact. Whenever you’re working with this you’ll want to swirl them together. Always apply blush to your cheeks in a circular motion. If you want a rosier look, you’ll want to blend a cream blush into your skin with your fingers.
Tips for the Lips
Whether or not you’re wearing lip color, you’re going to want to make sure to always apply some conditioner. Before doing so, use a soft, clean toothbrush to gently remove any dry, flaky skin so that your lips will be as smooth as possible. If you’re going to put on some lip color, you’ll want to start by applying some lip balm or lip cream. Make sure that you give this some time to absorb before you put on your lipstick. In order to get better control of your lipstick application you’ll want to use a brush.
The Eyes Have It
The eyes aren’t going to be quick. You’ll need to start by apply a thin layer of foundation to your eyelids to correct any imperfections.
Whenever it comes to choosing the right color of eye shadow, here’s some help:
1. Blondes should use cream or taupe color
2. Brunettes should use mocha or a chocolate brown
3. Auburns and redheads should opt for a copper, peach or reddish brown color
4. Grey hair goes best with gray, soft purple or blue eye shadow
Now that you have the right shad of eye shadow you’ll want to start by dusting the lightest color over your whole eyelid starting at your lash line and working just past the crease before gliding up to your brow bone. As you do so, allow the applicator to naturally lift off of your face. Next, dust a medium shade across your crease line extending slightly past the crease and up to the brow bone in order to give your eyes some depth. Now set the entire look with some loose powder.
Once you have your eye shadow done you can put on some mascara and brow pencil if necessary. Your mascara should be a long-wearing one that will define your curls and lengthen your lashes but won’t smudge, clump or flake.
