9 Beauty Tips That Will Make You Look Like A Star
You don't need to be a professional makeup artist to always look your best. Just keep in mind these simple rules!
1. Define your eyes with elegant arrows.
When you draw arrows on your upper eyelids, make sure they aren't too thick or too long. Keep them neat and elegant, to define your eyes and don't be afraid to try other shades than black.
2. Use a highlighter for a softly glowing skin.
Having a healthy glowing skin is one of the most important aspects of your look. Since you can't always naturally have that summer glow, use a bit of highlighter to create that gleaming effect on your skin.
3. Wear a delicate blush.
Applying blush properly will give you a healthy glow and highlight your best features. However, if you apply too much of it, you may get the opposite effect. To apply it the right way, smile in the mirror to find the apple of your cheeks and tap the blush to these areas.
4. Don't hesitate to wear red on your lips.
Red is the sexiest color you can wear on your lips. It's also a strong color and shouldn't be paired with an extravagant eye makeup. If you want to wear a red lipstick, choose a simple makeup for your eyes and make sure it fits in your overall look.
5. Wear light shimmering eyeshadows.
Shimmering eyeshadows are great, but they don't really fit in a day or casual look. They can be worn to evening events, in elegant circumstances, but for your everyday makeup routine, brown, peach or gray shades of eyeshadow are more appropriate.
6. Define your eyebrows properly.
Your eyebrows can completely change your appearance, both ways. Thick eyebrows are very popular these days, but they don't look good on anyone. Also, big, heavy or very dark eyebrows look completely unnatural and they can make you seem a little masculine. What you should be going for is a natural look, using a color that matches your overall appearance.
7. Apply foundation properly.
Most of us have imperfections on our skin and we use foundation to cover them up. Be very careful when you apply it because a thick layer will make your skin look cakey. Choose foundations with a thin, melting texture and don't apply them in several layers. If your imperfections are still visible, use concealer or corrector to hide them.
8. Don't apply too much makeup.
Try to look as natural as possible and don't apply more makeup than necessary. Hide your flaws, highlight your best features but don't cross that thin line between enough and too much.
9. Choose the right lipstick.
When you choose your lipstick shade, always be careful at the context: is it a fancy, evening event? If it is, you can pick a darker, stronger shade. If you're going for a daytime look, then a lighter, more natural shade would be more appropriate. If you're going on a date, avoid putting on lip gloss or ultra shiny lipsticks, because men hate the sticky texture.
