How often do you look at those impeccably dressed beautiful women who grace the red carpet at events like the Oscars and Grammys and wish you could pull off that look? The truth is even those women on your television screens were not born perfect. They have a lot of help so as to achieve that look which will make everyone swoon with envy.
With the light makeup techniques, you can bring out your best features and achieve a radiant glow that will ensure that you are picture ready. It may sound like a lot of work, but there are a few tips and tricks of makeup and contouring that can bring out your best feature making you a show stopper.
Now the first you need to tackle the question of your best feature. We always find flaws with ourselves but there is that one feature we can’t stop being proud of. From startling eyes to classic high cheekbones to rich and full lips, everyone has one best feature that you love in yourself. The makeup and contouring efforts are centered on this feature of yours with all the efforts focused on bringing it out.
If you are a lucky dame blessed with eyes that are a window to your soul then your makeup efforts should be focused on them. You should try to wear such eye shades that complement your eye color and bring them out. Try different eyeliner styles and choose the one that suits your eyes shape best. Those with eyes as blue as a sea should put on peach, bronze and brown shades while the girls with green eye should dress them up with purple eye color. Those with classic brown eyes should go for bronze shades. No matter how you dress up your eyes, make sure t use the eye shades sparingly so as to let your best feature shine through instead of masking it with too much color. In order to retain your long and lovely lashes, leave the waterproof mascara for special occasions as it causes eyelashes to fall off. Instead wear normal mascara and brush it properly to further enhance the lash length and add volume.
The girls endowed with a beautiful,full and exorbitant mouth like Angelina Jolie should carefully apply their lipstick so as to give your lips a ravishing look. Contour your nose to give it a slimmer look and thus further bring out your lips. To retain the natural look of your lips and flaunt it put on a nude lip gloss or else go for a pink color lipstick which complements your complexion. If you are out for a party, wear your lipstick with a lip liner so that it lasts longer. Don’t wear lip products like lipsticks and gloss for extended periods of time and do remove them before bed time.
In order to bring out your great cheekbones you need to use a blush on. However the blush on must be used intelligently so that it lends even more definition to your cheeks and brings out your high cheekbones. While contouring the cheeks, it is important to blend your makeup including highlighter and bronzer perfectly to get a flawless look. If they are not blended well, it will ruin the overall effect as well. The highlighter should always be dabbed a little above the blush on to get a perfectly contoured look.
The real advantage of these tricks lies in the fact that you can simply dress up your best feature and the simple makeup can last you through the day all the while looking completely natural. However, if you have a party to attend during the night you can still add a bit more of drama to your makeup and rock the night away.
