Face Makeup Tips

Any day makeup for face :-

The first step of a face make up is to clean it thoroughly. This is followed by the application of a base cream, which is layered with a foundation that suits the skin tone. A sponge applicator works best. Spots or blemishes can be hidden with a concealer or a light foundation. Even the neck, front and back, must be covered with the base to avoid a dual skin tone.
The face or compact powder should then be evenly spread on the face, preferably with a brush. This must be applied on the eyelids and lips too. Next the blusher needs to be applied deftly on the upper portion of the cheeks and blended softly to the skin. This lends a rosy tint to the cheeks, thus brightening up the face.

With the face done, the eyes come next. Eyeliner for the eyelids and mascara for the eyelashes are a must. Red, golden or green eye shadow complements the bride’s red dress. The eyebrow may be shaped or darkened with an eyebrow pencil.

The indispensable bindi is the next to feature on the forehead. Light designs can also be made on the forehead outlining the eyebrows. Lips are the last to be decorated. An outline may be made first with a lip pencil. The rest of the lips should be filled up with lipstick. The excess may be wiped off with tissue paper. The final touch is the lip-gloss that renders the shine to the lips.

This would give a total different glance and make eyes look impressive. It could be done in few easy steps just make sure to follow the steps in the sequence.

Step 1
Pick three different shades light, medium and dark shades from same color family. For instance choose the brown color shade then light brown, chamoisee brown and chocolate brown would be three required shades. The difference in the color shades must be significant so that it can be clearly noticed. The light shade is applied on the lid, medium on the crease (just below the eyebrows) and dark shade on the lash line (immediately above upper eye lashes). Prefer all shades as in powder form because it merges well and gives the consistent look.

Step 2
Prepare the eyes for eye shadow application by putting on the base of any foundation. Liquid foundation is more apt for eyes. Single out the foundation color shades closest to the skin tone. This base would help the eye shadow to stay in its place for a longer duration and enhance the appearance of its color. Apply very little foundation with the help of brush and blend it well. In case foundation is not available then concealer or translucent dusting powder could also be used.

Step 3
Once the base is ready on the eyes, first put the medium color shade of eye shadow on the eyelid crease. Moving the brush back and forth apply it on the crease. Apply it only with a brush. Any type of sponge, finger or cotton should not be used as it neither applies nor blends well.

Step 4
Then apply the light shade on the left edge of the right eye and on the right edge of the left eye. Put on the lightest of all shade on the edges and on the lid that is below the crease and just about the lash line. Blend it well with medium shade. It must also be applied only with the eye shadow blush.

Step 5
Last apply the dark color on the lash line. It should be applied with utmost care and patience because this makeup cosmetic should not go in the eye and must not over shadow other two shades.
