What woman doesn't want to feel more glamorous in her day-to-day life? Wearing makeup is a way to add to that glamour, but there are some tricks to applying it for every-day wear that you may not know. Below are five makeup tips that can help you look your best every day of the week!
1. The right tools for the job.
Good brushes are essential to achieve any look, whether natural or all-out glam. They make the job easier and give you more control over application and blending. You won't see a makeup artist using sponge to apply foundation. Makeup brushes are an investment. They’re worth every cent and if cared for properly, will last for years. Using brushes also helps cut down on product waste. Your makeup will also last longer since it’s placed where you want it and not being absorbed by spongy material.
2. Highlight your best features.
Highlighting is a way to make your face and makeup come alive. Beautiful, glowing skin looks sexy and glamorous! This doesn’t mean adding a layer of disco ball shine all over your face. It's more about illuminating specific areas of the face, such as the tops of your cheek bones or the inner corners of the eyes. Another great spot to add a highlight is the Cupid's bow of the top lip. It not only looks beautiful, but makes lips appear fuller! The highlighter you choose should be the same as your skin tone or lighter and have a shimmery finish.
3. Don't neglect your brows.
It's no secret that great brows frame beautiful eyes. Everyone loves Kim Kardashian's sexy, smoldering gaze. Can you imagine if she had tiny over-plucked brows? Not quite the same look! Define brows using a suitable brow powder and angled brush. Youngblood’s Mineral Lash Prime can help tame unruly brows. Make sure you don’t wax your brows the day of an event, as this makes it almost impossible for foundation or shadow to stick to the areas that have been waxed.
4. Use your concealer as an eraser
Concealer is necessary for anyone with pigmentation, bags, blemishes, etc. It's also a great eraser! Did you ever wonder how the pros get such crisp clean lines around lips? Using a small concealer brush along the outside edge of the lip line after lipstick has been applied will sharpen lines and erase any smudges. This is essential if you are using red or any dark colors. This trick also works around the eyes to clean up any fall out from shadow and to sharpen liner. Try Youngblood’s Ultimate Concealer and Concealer Brush for the best results!
5. Your canvas
Beautiful makeup begins with beautiful skin. So take care of it! If you don't already have a routine, talk to your esthetician. They will help choose the right products for the best results. It is also good to exfoliate 1-2 times per week. This makes your skin smooth and glowing. Makeup will adhere better and look smoother.
