Dos at Makeup
- The important parts of the face in makeover are eyes and the lips. The eyes reflect the beauty of the heart. For that we use eye liner, Eye shadow and Mascara. We have to use this properly for making the eyes beautiful.
- When you returning to the home from college or workplaces put a quality cleanser as dots on your face and apply it upwardly on the face. Then after one minute clean it with cotton upwardly. This will remove the dirt from the face.
- The pores will open after the usage of cleanser. For tightening the skin we have to use toner. Toners depending upon the skin if used regularly the skin will not be loosened and also you remain young.
- Next is moisturizing cream. This is our friend who retains moisture at our skin. This retains our youthfulness. This is the reason behind someone who is looking as 22 even at 40.
- Those who are having dry skin should use oil based creams for makeup. They should strictly avoid oil free creams or dry powders.
- Based upon your skin tone you can choose foundation, concealer, and compact by using tester. Then only the makeup will not look odd.
- Curl your lashes upward to eliminate the need for mascara, or if you can’t do without try a transparent one so lashes look dewy and delicate.
- While doing makeup, careful about making light the eyes or the lips. For instance if you use dark colored or shiny eye shadow, use light colored lipsticks.
- It is good to use biscuit or light colored eye shadows. Red and maroon colors can be avoided. Red lip color and gloss can be used if you want to look glamorous in the evening party.
- So many women wear too much makeup or the wrong shade. Other women don’t moisturize enough and then wear a powder that highlights every crevice. If you’re feeling like your skin looks dull, the best thing to do is wash your face with warm water and apply an enzyme peel. Then wash again with warm water and apply a hydrating mask. After 15 or 20 minutes, wash again and apply an antioxidant product and a little makeup.
Don’ts at Makeup:
- Don’t use excessive concealers for covering the dark circles. Concealer will cover the dark circles only for an extent and it will not cure them. Silicon mixed makeup kit should be used for this.
- Draw a dark single line below the eyes using kohl pencil. For getting the dark and narrow line scribble something in the paper using kohl pencil and then draw. If the kohl pencil is used darker in density the eyes will look smaller. It will not be highlighted.
- By applying quality moisturizing creams all over the body may also give the moisture and the glow to the skin. Have more fruit juices and avoid taking bath in hot water.
- Don’t use artificial eyelashes. Try to use mascara. Applying excessive mascara will look abnormal. Use it in single or double coats. Use Blushers only at the time of parties.
- Don’t use excessive lip gloss on lipstick. Then lipstick may drip from lips.
- Don’t use eye shadows and mascara matching to your dress color. It may show you an ultra modern girl but it will not be suitable for that place.
- Don’t use excessive makeup while you go out important places in the day time. Choose all the cosmetics with sunscreen protection. Water proof Eyeliner, Mascara, Lipstick is available in the market. If we use these kinds of products, water or sweat may destroy the makeup.
- Have foundation and compact with you always. You can touch up if your work is delayed for some time you want to go directly to theater or somewhere else? Don’t worry. Put a makeup to at least your eyes. It will be looking like refreshed.
- Don’t go out after immediately after makeup. Apply makeup before one hour of going out. So that the makeup mingle with the skin and look natural. Otherwise it will look like paint applied on the wall.
- Sweating is common to more people. They may place ice cubes on face before applying makeup. If you get any irritation because of makeup wash the face immediately. The makeup once applied should be in face for only 4 hours. If it lasts more than this time, the chemicals will penetrate to the skin. The makeup should be removed after four hours and can be applied after half an hour if you want to be in makeup for all the day.
