everyday make-up tips for your face
Use a foundation primer to help foundation go on smoother and last longer.
For maximum coverage in problem areas, apply concealer after foundation. This keeps the coverage both concentrated and comprehensive.
Always apply a moisturizer and an eye cream; it helps makeup go on smoother.
Invest in good makeup brushes; they're vital to application and make a difference when blending.
Use a soft, shimmering powder or liquid to highlight the top of the cheekbones and add a natural-looking glow.
Keep a good bronzer in your makeup kit for daytime to achieve that nice, sun-kissed look. This applies to both women and men!
To contour cheeks (and nose), use a shade that' a few shades darker than your foundation and shade the areas you want to contour. You can also use a bronzer.
To give skin a healthy glow, exfoliate with a mild facial scrub once a week to remove dead skin cells from the surface of skin.
Invest in a good hydrating moisturizer with at least SPF 15. For oilier skin, which also needs hydration, invest in an oil-free moisturizer with an SPF.
Mix concealer with eye cream to help it go on smoother and keep it from getting dry.
For a dewy finish on cheeks, use a cream blush or gel stick and blend into the cheekbone area.
To highlight cheeks and around the eyes, use a shimmering highlighter, for an added glow.
Don't practice "paint by numbers" on your face and try to draw in unnatural features. Use what nature gave you and enhance your best features.
