Eliminate dark circles
Under-eye concealers with a peachy tone will help to cover dark circles and counter the blueish tint of shadows. You can conceal dark circles with a light concealer and a good corrector. This will give you the coverage you need without looking cakey or using a heavy mask. Try Dual Action Concealer
Cover up redness and broken capillaries.
Green correctors were once the best option for hiding redness. However, they can make skin appear flat and lifeless. Photo-optic filters in CC Creams will reflect light onto the skin, reducing redness. Try Luminous CC Cream 20
How to cover pimples without irritation
A mineral powder foundation followed by an antibacterial concealer is the best solution for pimples. The best cover-ups are oil-free, non-comedogenic, and have anti-inflammatory properties. Mineral oil, lanolin, and talc-based products tend to clog pores and worsen acne. Try Photo Touch Concealer & Mineral Powder Foundation
Do not emphasize fine lines, but conceal them.
It is important to know the difference between under-preparing the skin to allow the product to penetrate and over-preparing the skin to cause the product to slide off. It is important to keep the area hydrated but not greasy. A good eye cream and hydrating concentration will help you prepare your skin for makeup. Allow the product time to absorb and settle. Keep your layers light and fine. This will give you a natural, lasting look.
Create a perfect base.
The foundation is what gives your skin a flawless appearance. It’s vital to choose the right shade and coverage, as well as the desired look (matte or dewy). You can choose a tinted moisturizer if you prefer a lighter range. If you need more coverage, a liquid foundation will do the trick. Try Mineral Sheer Tint or HD Luminous Foundation
Bonus tip: If you are looking for sheer coverage, use your fingers. For medium-to-full range, use a sponge or brush.
We can fake the look! It only takes a little sculpting. Apply a contour powder or a nude blush to the recessed area beneath your cheekbones. Start by puckering your lips to find your hollow cheeks. Apply a peachy-hued blush, starting at the apples of your cheeks. Blend lightly. Apply an illuminator to the cheekbones, under your temples, and along your top cheekbones. Try Baked Blush & Liquid Illuminator
White will make your eyes look brighter. Make eyes brighter by placing a small amount of white eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eye, near the tear duct. Try Mineral Shadow Opal
The eyeliner is the key to a flawless makeup. Eyeliner on the eye rims can make your eyes look more striking. However, if you have very small or deep-set eyes, this is not the best option.
It will make your lashes appear thicker. You can also create peaks in the outer corners to give you the appearance of almond-shaped eyes. Try Powderliner Pencil
Bonus tip: Eye whites will appear whiter if you wear plums or eggplants.
Choose the right eyeshadow shade.
Select shadows to make your eye color pop. Blue and grey tones enhance brown eyes, while plums improve green eyes. It would help if you weren’t scared to experiment with different shades but keep in mind that the eyeshadow should complement your eyes and not overpower them. Try Mineral Matte Shadows
Are you still searching for the perfect volumizing mascaras? Don’t stress. Apply your mascara, then dust your lashes with powder (loose or translucent powder). Before applying the final coat of mascara, apply a layer of your mascara to your lashes. The result? Thick, gorgeous lashes.
As a bonus tip, sweep the wand from the root of your lashes upwards and zigzag. This will add length.
Simple Smokey Eye
Who doesn’t like a smokey-eye? There is an easy and quick alternative to the smokey eye look that requires several shades of eyeshadows and lots of blending. Use an eye pencil and draw a hashtag slanted above the outer corners. Blend with the smudger tip of the pencil. You’ll get a smokey eye instantly. Try Powderliner Pencil
Prevent product from seeping through cracks and “smoker’s lines.”
Before applying lipstick, apply lip balm to the lips and beyond the lip border. This will allow the lips to absorb moisture, plumping out fine lines. Apply a lip primer to the entire lip area and even beyond the lip border. Fill in the lips with a lip pencil of the desired color and apply lipstick only to the center.
Lipsticks should be chosen to complement the skin tone. Cool skin tones can wear plum, rose, and burgundy, while warm skin tones are better suited to terracotta, red, and orange. If your eye makeup is strong, you should keep the lips neutral and soft. If you want to go bold with the lip color, opt for simple eyeliner and mascara. Try Moisture Creme Lipstick
You can never be too old to have wet lips. Small amounts of gloss in the middle of the lips will make them appear plump and young. Keep your lip gloss handy to refresh your makeup throughout the day.
Make Lipstick Last Longer
Lipstick never lasts long. Place a tissue on your lips after applying lipstick, and then dust some translucent powder. This will set the color and instantly make it last longer.
Try the NEW Lip Stains for long-lasting, vibrant color from AM to PM. These lip stains will last for coffee, cake, and kisses. Seriously.
Lipliner can be used to enhance the appearance of your lips, but it also gives the impression of plumper and bigger lips. Use a neutral or similar shade to your lipstick before applying lipstick or gloss. If the lipstick fades, you won’t be walking around with just the outline.
Start by drawing a thin line outside of your natural lip line, starting in the middle and moving outwards. Keep it fine and light. Try Longwear Lipliner
The line will last longer if you powder it.
How to shape your eyebrows
Your face can be transformed by adding definition and shape to the eyebrows. It’s not difficult to shape your eyebrows. Begin by brushing the eyebrows to ensure that they are positioned naturally. Use a waxy, soft brow pencil to contour the outer edge of your eyebrow. Fill in the brows with short strokes that look like hairs. Blend some highlighter below the brow bone to lift. Try Brow Blender Pencil
