All women are on a quest to look good. Women rely greatly on beauty products and cosmetics, but can be intimidated about how to apply make up correctly.
I’ve come to discover that the less makeup you pile on, the better, and the younger you will look. It’s good to have some makeup tricks under your sleeve to keep you through meetings and events for the day.
The key to getting a radiant glow is how you apply your foundation. This means lightly patting a small amount of foundation and blending it properly onto your skin. The more you apply, the heavier the foundation will look, which could cake and very possibly age you. For an airbrushed finish, experiment and learn the technique of using a makeup sponge for an even and flawless application.
There is really nothing as stunning as a dramatic eye. For a girl-next-door look, “tightlining” is a favorite technique of many makeup artists. It makes your lashes look thicker and darker.
This involves applying eyeliner at the roots of your lashes or at the underside (or waterline) of your lids. This trick will give the illusion of larger eyes.
To further amplify the look, curl your lashes with a heated curler (try warming the eyelash curler under a hair dryer). To thicken your lashes further, apply a bit of baby powder onto your lashes with a cotton, but make sure not to get any in your eyes.
If you have an early meeting to catch, skip washing your hair to save on precious time. Many women (and men, too!) rely on their handy can of dry shampoo. Spritz on your hair for volume and texture. If you don’t have dry shampoo at home, pour some baby powder on your hand and apply at the roots of your hair to dry out the oil and add volume. Make sure to wash your hair the next day.
A chic ensemble and great makeup will take you places, but there’s nothing as sophisticated as fragrance layering. It’s about finding a great combination that enhances the scent of the main perfume you’re using. When layering, involve a citrus or something light, and always start with the heaviest scent and leave the lightest scent last.
The safest way to experiment with fragrance layering is to mix and match on a piece of paper strip before applying onto yourself. Finding a unique scent is a great way to emphasize your character and sense of style.
