We all long for that fabulous, perfect look that celebrities manage to reveal on the red carpet. They have spotless skin, bigger and more luminous eyes, and fuller lips. In reality, even the hottest celebrities have flaws. Learning a few makeup tricks will help you emphasize all your qualities, hide imperfections, and make you look stunning on every occasion.
Standing assured and feeling good in your skin are essential things for every woman. But, because the way we look is a part of us, we should all know a few easy beauty tricks that could boost our confidence.
Get bigger eyes with makeup.
Studies show that large eyes are a sign of beauty, femininity, and innocence.
When it comes to bigger eyes, it’s all about shading and highlighting. First of all, you need eyeliner. Please don’t choose a black one because it would only make your eyes smaller. Use light to a medium shade of eyeliner or a colored one. If blue or green is not one of your favorites, try a slate, which flatters anyone. Always use a freshly sharpened pencil. Don’t apply the eyeliner all away around the eyes because they will only look smaller.
Then, apply a shiny white eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eyelid, making an inverted “V” shape. The idea is to catch the light in the center of your eye, which will make it bigger.
Finally, use the eyelash curler. By curling your lashes, they will get even closer to the eyebrows opening the entire eye area. Fix the curved line of your eyelashes by applying mascara for lengthening. For bigger eyes and a more dramatic impact, add a second coat of mascara.
It would help if you did not forget about the lower lashes.
Get fuller lips with makeup.
Use a shimmery colorless lip balm and apply it above the Cupid’s bow (the upper lip area). Doing so, you’ll catch the light and give the impression of fuller lips.
Apply a moisturizing lipstick. Moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid serum attract and retain water in your lips, making them fuller.
Make sure that your lipstick has an intense glowing as the matte ones don’t reflect light.
Finally, apply some balm in the middle of the lower lip.
Bring out cheekbones
Begin by applying your usual face products, such as foundation or powder. It would help if you had a highlighter (powder) and a bronzing powder, two tones darker than your skin tone for more contoured cheeks.
Apply bronzing powder on the hollows of your cheeks. Smile and then apply the highlighter, starting from the cheeks and working your way to the temples.
Contrasting tones will define the cheeks.
Get a thinner nose with makeup.
Apply foundation on the nose, then add a bit of highlighter down the bone in the center of your nose. You can also draw a thin line down each side of your nose using a shadow or cream two to three shades darker than your natural skin color.
Finally, fix everything with a translucent powder.
Another trick to try is accentuating your eyes or lips, which draws attention away from the center of your face, making your nose slimmer.
Fake a flawless skin
Using a special brush, apply a concealer so you can cover any blemishes, dark spots, muddy areas, or marks. The meeting will get in every corner of the site with problems and is better than using the fingers.
Make sure that your concealer contains salicylic acid, which treats pimples. Don’t apply two different formulas (an anti-acne cream and concealer) simultaneously, as they won’t resist the skin.
Fix everything with a powder matching your skin tone.
