Easy Makeup Tips

Posted in great tips! by tokyostargirl on September 26, 2008

Happy FRIDAY!!!! Here are some easy makeup tips I found online – hopefully some or all of it will help you! Have a great weekend!

The right lipstick can look fantastic on cheeks  yes, you can use your lipstick as blush, but don’t apply it straight from the bullet. Dab it only lightly with your finger, and blend until you achieve a natural color. (I’ve never tried this before, but it sounds like it would go on like the cream blushes)

  • You can mix the makeup textures  yes, by applying cream eye color and powder shadow you can achieve a more intense and longer-lasting color. Using eye pencil layered with a powder will soften the pencil and will create a texture in-between that of a cream and a powder.You can use a touch of water with eye shadow it will become a fantastic and intense liquid liner that will stay longer and will look more natural.
  • Use a reflective pale-yellow powder  it is made from rice starch and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin. The powder will last all day long and reflect light, it also masks any imperfections, even the dark circles under the eyes.

  • Darken skin tones should avoid shimmer products the shimmer products can make your face look chalky and grey. A natural peach of glow is appropriate and works best for all skin tones. You can mix the moisturizer with your foundation for sheer coverage.
  • To create depth of color – choose a darker shade to create a solid shimmer base, then embellish with a highlighting glitter. Always apply the sparkly eye shadows using a brush.
  • To avoid creasing  dab the eye area with an iridescent powder in the same shade as the eye shadows. You should use a powder shadow rather than a cream shadow.
  • Use a hydrating face cream  to create a barrier against possible moisture loss and reconstitute the hydrolipidic film on the skin’s surface.
  • When using eyeliner  draw a thin layer that lifts to a peak just above the pupil. Draw a very thin line under the lower lash line. Draw the line slightly beyond the iris, but don’t extend beyond the corners of the eye.
  • When applying mascara always make sure that the wand isn’t overloaded with mascara, take some off with a tissue before applying.
  • For longer-lasting eye color  apply foundation and then a concealer to the lid, then swept a wash of color over the top, dotting it on the inner corner to open up the eye.
  • If your lips are thin  commit drawing just outside the natural line of your lips with a lip pencil close to your lip color and fill in with lipstick or lip-gloss. Using only a lip gloss will also give the illusion of fuller lips.
  • If your lips are too full blot the entire lip out using a concealer and redraw just within the line with a darker tone of lipstick or lip-gloss.

    Rice moisturizer is one natural moisturizers it helps protect the skin from being damaged by UVA and UVB which are the cause of melasma, freckle, and skin cancer. Because it has plentiful minerals, unsaturated fatty acid and vitamins especially the natural vitamin E which is in high quantity as Tocols (Tocopherol & Tocotrienol), Gamma-Qryzanol and Ceramide.
