- Once thought of as cakey and heavy, powder is now used to set and maintain the foundation. It can be applied quite sheer and look very translucent. Applied with a powder puff, powder secures the foundation; applied with a brush, powder gives a slight sheer finish. It will keep your foundation in place and help it last longer and not get on your clothes or his.
At one time or another, most of us have experienced hickies, bruises, cuts or burns. The method to cover up the tattoos works the same way to cover up all the above. The shades might change depending on the stage of the bruise or hickey.
Bumps and breakouts on the skin (back/arms/body): Most of us take care of our face with cleansers and moisturizers yet totally neglect our body. Take the time in the shower to gently exfoliate with a loofah or a washcloth on your body. Try some Epsom salts in the bath, which can be used to exfoliate with a washcloth. Apply a body oil or moisturizer to your body before you completely dry off. (This will also help self-tanners go on much smoother.)
For everyday wear, choose lip color in neutral shades like mauves (pink and orange combination). Also, when choosing a lip texture, keep in mind that a matte lipstick has more pigment (color) and stays on longer than sheer or glossy ones. You can always apply a gloss over the lipstick for added shine.
Preventing lipstick from getting on your teeth: After applying lipstick and/or gloss, place your finger into your mouth, wrap your lips around the finger and gently pull out your finger in a lollipop motion. The excess lipstick on the inside of your lips will end up on your finger instead of your teeth. Simply wipe it off on a tissue and you’re set to go.
A white pencil can be applied to the inner lash line of the eye. This can give the effect of the eye being larger. However, this can also have a tendency to look like you're trying too hard.
Placing a light shimmer under the bottom eyeliner will soften and give added "oomph" to the eye.
I prefer using black mascara to achieve the most dramatic effect. I can apply only one coat and it does the trick. Brown mascara works better if you want a more natural look; it's also a good option if you are very fair skinned or a young adult.
