There’s no ideal season for a makeover, and sometimes, a girl just needs a change.
Blessed with a morena Filipina skin tone, she gives us a perfect opportunity to demonstrate how best to perform a make-over in this situation. It all starts with the beginning of any such endeavor: foundation.
Makeup artists demonstrate how to choose and apply coverage on every face they encounter, yet, with a little more consideration and care, can do the same. So where do you start? By finding the right foundation, of course. It’s the makeup equivalent of snagging that perfect-fitting pair of jeans.
Test three consecutive colors of foundation, and place three stripes (one per shade) on your jaw line.
2. Go into the daylight to see which shade “disappears” on your skin. That is the right shade for you.
3. Never rely on overhead indoor lights to get the right shade!
4. Get a shade two shades lighter than your foundation, and that can serve as your concealer for the under-eye and overall eye area. Too light a shade will only make the under-eye area look grey.
5. To conceal flaws around the eye area, pick a shade that’s exactly the same as your foundation. You want to conceal the flaw, not bring more attention to it.
To copy Dimples’ overall look, follow these easy steps:
Lift: To get volume for hair, wrap front pieces around a large curling iron, away from your face.
Gloss: Lips look fuller with a rich color; apply lipstick first, then add a topcoat of gloss for shine.
Fill: Eyebrows sparse? Pencil them lightly with a color that matches your hair or brows.
Lighten: To hide shadows around your eyes, dot concealer above and below. Blend well.
Brighten: Skin looks vibrant when you wear warm hues like coral and peach (her blush). You can also extend these to the clothes you wear.
