10 Make-up tips

here is 10 makeup tips!........


1.The most important makeup products that should be used daily are concealer, mascara and lip colour. Concealer will make you look less tired. Mascara will make your eyes appear larger than they are and more open. Lastly, lip colour accentuates a lovely smile. Now you´re ready to greet the world :)


2.Cosmetics have "gone bad" if they smell funny or if the formula has separated or dried out. Be especially careful with products used near the eyes as this is a sensitive area. If you suddenly react to a product that you have used faithfully, there may be bacteria forming, and therefore you have a reaction.


3. Give your complexion a healthy flush of colour by dabbing a cream blush onto the apples of your cheeks and then blend in. Bobbi Brown have a delicious array of colours to suit every skin tone in their Pot Rouge collection and the cream texture produces a youthful glow rather than a powdery finish.


4.Curl your lashes before using mascara as this will make you look more awake and your eyes will appear larger. Apply lashings of black mascara making sure it does not look clumpy but beautifully defined and separated.


5. Prepare the skin by using a ‘primer’. This will smooth out the surface of the skin and allow foundation to adhere better and last longer.


6.Always apply concealer after foundation.  Use cream based light-reflecting concealers around the eye  area and more powder based heavier-duty concealers on spots and blemishes.


7.Test foundation colour on the jaw line to find the exact match. Try at least two colours; the one that blends  away and doesn’t look noticeable is the correct shade.


8.Use bronzer on cheekbones, temples and nose as a quick fix to give the skin a more luminous healthy  appearance.


9.  You pat concealer in, you never rub it in We know this from watching the Tyra Banks show. When applying concealer, put a bit on the pad of your middle finger and pat it in. Never rub. 


10.Don't play up the eyes and the mouth Women who wear heavy eye makeup and dark lipstick can look clownish. If you want to wear  red lipstick, keep the rest of your makeup light. If you are playing up the eyes, keep your mouth light with a gloss or light lip color that doesn't stand out.
