16 Makeup Suggestions

If your face is too slender, if your face is too full, if your complexion is too pale, if your lips are too thin and straight... you should read this.

  1. If your face is too slender, create an illusion of width. Place your blusher on the curve of the cheek, slightly away from the nose. Blend well, out and above to the temples.
  2. If your face is square and heavy along the jaw line, soften the angles of the jawline by shadowing. Pat on blusher and then blend down across the square part.
  3. Make-up that looks just fine in the sunshine can look faded and washed out under artificial lighting. Use warmer and deeper colors for the evenings.
  4. If your face is too full, use a little blusher on the high part of the cheek, closer to the nose. Blend lightly across the too full area.
  5. A soft blending of rouge under the jaw line or chin takes away a heavy drooping effect Your jaw line can look more clear-cut with this trick for the evening.
  6. To focus extra attention on eyes and mouth, circle the outer edge of the face very lightly with blusher .Blend with feathery strokes.
  7. To accentuate the cheek bones for evening makeup, use a liquid foundation shade lighter than usual. Apply it in little dabs on the top of the cheek bones and on to the corners of the nose. Blend well.
  8. Powder blushers give you color without shine--- oily skins should avoid cream blushers.
  9. If your complexion is too pale, don't use a pink foundation. Choose a clear natural foundation for a natural look. Avoid very dark eye shadows and lipsticks. They would make you look too intense and tired. Go in for dull rust or brown eyeshades. Use a soft blusher on cheeks, chin and forehead.
  10. Does your face look terribly oily halfway through the day? Your complexion can look and stay natural and soft all day if you try this trick: Take a blusher brush, clean it with cool water and allow to dry. Then sprinkle some baby powder into the open bristles. Dust this powder over your face before applying your foundation.
  11. If your complexion is too sallow, do not be tempted by a clear beige or very pink foundation. Avoid yellow or green colors in make –up, these two colors bring out the sallow color of your skin. Go in for warm beige foundation and clear blue eye shadows. Lipsticks are best in medium tones.
  12. To achieve a subtler look, instead of using eyeliner draw the thinnest possible line at the roots of the eyelashes with a soft dark brown eye shadow.
  13. If you wear false eyelashes, make them look natural by brushing both the false and real lashes with a little mascara after putting them on.
  14. In winter use pearly-grey and shell-beige eye shadows. Avoid highlighters during the daytime, as they would look too harsh.
  15. Never try to match eye shadow color to your eye color and lip color to nail color ---------- result will be too dated.
  16. If your lips are too thin and straight, apply your lipstick from slightly above the line of the upper lip and slightly below the line of the lower lip. Curve the lines slightly with a lip pencil. Make your lips look fuller by using a darker and richer shade of lipstick in the centre and a lighter one in the corners.

Lady Gaga is probably my biggest guilty pleasure in music. I can't explain why I like her.
And you?
