Make-up's Best Kept Secret
Make-up has evolved a great deal since Cleopatra learned how to make a tight line. Thanks to technology and internet (Youtube hey!), everyone knows Make-up Basics 101. Below is a compilation of what we think is Make-Up's best kept secrets.
Tips on how to be your very own Makeup artist.
Want your foundation to last all day? Do the following steps:
Start with a clean face and moisturize.
Slather primer all over your face.
Brush face with loose powder, if you have dry skin, you may skip this step.
Apply foundation using your hands. If skin tends to be oily, brush the T –zone of your face with loose powder.
Fake a long lash by brushing baby powder on to the lash before applying mascara.
Want a flushed cheeks look natural? Don’t pinch those cheeks instead add blush to cheeks before applying foundation. It will look that glow came from within.
Trick for a slimmer looking nose bridge, it will depend on how your eyebrow are set apart, if it is too far apart, it will appear that you have a wider nose bridge. If eyebrows are set just right or are closer together, it will give you the illusion of a narrower nose.
Learn to tight line your eyes. It does make a difference when you darken the roots of your lashes.
Ran out of oil blotting paper? Save those napkins from your favorite coffee shops and restaurant. Cost you nothing and still as good as that expensive oil blotting paper.
Before applying make – up, rehydrate yourself with water. You will find that make up “sticks” better if you are well hydrated.
