How is your makeup routine like? Do you follow suggestions or do you wing it? Indeed everyone in the world this days tend to do as they please like the famous mantra “You do You” but does that and should that apply to every facet of our lives? I don’t think so and you know why, sometimes we have to realize we don’t know everything. One of this realizations is our makeup habits, although we might look at the mirror and think we have slayed our makeup look for the day but have we really?
Many make the mistake of applying and following steps that does not do any justice to their features, it might be intentional or unintentional but correct me if am wrong, the aim of making up is to enhance your features not to make them look Old and crinkled. Therefore its time to forget your mantra for a second and pay attention to some of the guides that would give you a flawless everyday makeup finish;
Applying too bright blush on your cheeks when you are not about to go clowning is a no no when it comes to your everyday make-up routine. So take time to apply the blush on your cheek bone and dust towards your ear. Also if it’s not a full blown night time make-up you should avoid red and brick red because they add maturity to your facial features.
2. Spider Lashes
When it come to everyday application of makeup, it has to be light, voluminous and neutral so except you have a big event whatsoever your lashes should be kept detached and simple with the application of a top liner and excluding the bottom liner. This keeps you looking young and fresh.
Applying concealer can be tricky so you have to do it right so as not to end up looking like a total mess. You have to make sure you don’t accentuate as opposed to concealing and accentuating happens when the concealer color is not right or the concealer is too thick. So make sure you get the right color and volume.
Contouring and highlighting is cool but is it necessary? For your everyday makeup its best to tone it down, keep it simple so rather than strobing, highlighting, clown contouring and so on, keep it light or forfeit the step altogether because if you walk out with harsh line you would only look like you’ve aged.
Shimmer is fun but for lipstick application not so much because too much only makes you look like a mess which makes you older so apply a matte lipstick using only a bit of shimmer on your lips and then dab a bit of lip gloss in the middle for an everyday look.
Learn this by heart, then go forth and slay all day everyday !!!
