Want to shine like the movie stars without feeling as if you need a face lift? Here’s some help.
- Learn how to emphasize what you like about your face and minimize what you don’t.
- Don’t be afraid to experiment with product. Obtain samples if necessary. If something doesn’t work, trade it in for something that will.
- Learn how to put it all together, so that your make-up, clothes and accessories work well together. You want a monochromatic look, which means using more than one tone for your foundation, blush and lips.
- Don’t spend a lot of money on make-up.
- Work on the techniques you learn until you get it right.
- Bronzers go on the outside of the face, not by your eyes or nose.
- Use a shimmer highlighter instead of blush for your cheeks. This keeps you from allowing your face to look too pink.
- Use a good moisturizer; one that keeps your skin looking smooth for the day and doesn’t allow for dry creases in your foundation. Top foundation with a light powder that will set it.
- Red lips are all the rage now with the stars. When wearing red especially, make sure to line your lips, purchase the right shade of red for your skin tone, and make sure that you blend the liner and the lipstick. You will look more put together and your lipstick will last longer.
- Get long lashes by using fake lashes. Tricks include: lining your upper lid with liner, glueing close to your lash line, and finishing by curling your lashes with an eyelash curler before applying mascara.
- Don’t over pluck your brows!
- Cosmetic manufactures have great ideas on applying make-up. Check out Cover Girl and Max Factor.
In the long run, your best face will be the face that looks the most natural; the freshest. Less makeup is more, and learning the tricks of the trade will only help you with the star look you want.
