More girls need to learn how to apply makeup correctly.
Remember: Less is More pretty ladies :):)
I love cosmetics just as much as any other girl, but I'm a true believer in natural beauty and using them to ENHANCE your natural appearance. Not cover it up.
So I have come up with a few tips and beauty tricks that I live by, and think more girls should try. I'm no professional, but they've worked well for me. So here they are!!
1. Bronzer- It should be used for contouring. Not as face paint. This is a huge mistake that I see too many girls making. Refer to a few YouTube videos if you need help.
And choose your color wisely! I suggest going into Sephora and having them test different shades on your face to see which one matches you best. I personally use Bare Minerals Bronzer, and it works great for my olive skin.
2. Moisturizer- This is something that I have a hard time getting in the habit of, but they key to a great complexion is hydrated, well-moisturized skin. I'm thinking of picking up some Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer with SPF. I've heard good things.
3. Foundation- For years I skimped and bought the cheap drug store makeup. But I have combination skin and need a matte foundation of a little higher quality. It makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE. Trust me. Your face is the first thing people see and it speaks volumes about you.
4. Blush- It should not be streaked down the sides of your face. Or look relatively close to what a clown would wear. It should compliment your bronzer and be carefully applied to the apple of your cheeks. And along with bronzer, should be a shade that compliments your skin. This is Bella Bamba made by Benefit, and works great with olive skin like mine:
These are just the basics, but are essential for a great look. Good luck ladies!
