MakepUp application tips
Weíll cover just a few of the more common Cosmetic application tips here. With all the different products, there are bound to
be many different procedures to go along with them. So letís just look at some of the products that will help you get the
maximum benefit out of your cosmetics use.
One of the biggest complaints from women about cosmetics is that their makeup tends to slip and slide, and gather in cracks.
The best way to combat this annoying problem is to use a good toner before you apply your makeup. Let it dry, then use an
oil-free foundation. If your skin gets too oily during the day, just use blotting paper to soak up the oil.
Many women have trouble accentuating their beautiful eyes. For example, they might apply a dark liner under them, but thatíll
only make them look smaller. To make your eyes look bigger, use a lighter color eyeliner. And if you really want them to
stand out, use a matte pastel eye shadow, then some mascara. You could even curl if you want.
If youíre one of those women who donít have very well-defined lips, then it can be frustrating when youíre applying your
lipstick because youíre not sure where the lips end and the skin begins. The easiest way to figure it out is to line your
lips with a pencil that matches your natural lip color, keeping inside your lip line, then fill it in with your lip color.
Some women like to put some foundation on a Q-tip to fill in any doubtful spots.
If you want your lipstick to last all day, hereís a simple tip. Use a lipstick sealant under your lipstick, instead of over
it. Put the sealant on first, then the lip color. Then do a quick blot with a Kleenex, and apply your lip color. Your
lipstick should then last you pretty well all day.
How many women use a magnifying mirror to apply their makeup, so they can get it just right? Consider this: do you have
people examining you that closely all day? For the most part, you probably donít come into that close a contact with people
so, although you want to do a good job on your makeup, you donít have to go to extremes.
