#1. Hide any imperfections
It is really important to achieve a full-coverage base for your makeup.
Start with applying your foundation first and then conceal all the problem areas in order to hide all the blemishes and make your skin look flawless. You can apply the foundation using a foundation brush, beauty blender or your fingertips, it is really up to you! When you try to conceal any imperfections on your skin, it will be better for you to do it with a concealer brush, because if you use your fingertips you may irritate the area. Once you are ready make sure to blend all the products well. Otherwise, the camera flash will reveal all the lines that you have missed and there will be nothing you can change it.
#2. Contour your face
Once your base is finished you can start with shaping your face. Contouring is a very powerful technique that allows us to create undetectable beauty illusions and even make us look like we have a plastic surgery done. Applying concealer underneath your eyes will brighten up the area, making you look more awake and refreshed. Using a flat brush will give you the precision that you need and will be easier for you to avoid any mistakes. You can make your face look thinner, your nose look smaller and your cheeks…well you can create magic! If you are new to contouring go to Youtube and you will be amazed how much makeup tricks you can learn there!
We are not all lucky enough to be born with gorgeous cheekbones and the face structure that we dream about, but don’t worry that is what the makeup is all about! After you have contour your face, you don’t have to stop here!
If you don’t own any highlighter, you can always use your shimmery eyeshadows! And yes they will do the job just fine! Assuming that the makeup basics such as mascara, eyeliner, lipstick, and lip gloss are the only makeup products that you need to create the beautiful look, it’s really a huge mistake many of us make.
If you want to sculpt your face and define all of your features wet the contour powder/concealer and your highlighter create them for you!
#4. Always apply blush
We all dream about glowing and radiant skin, but we know this just isn’t going to happen without a kiss of blush on the cheeks. Apply Pink blush with your blush brush and you will automatically notice how healthier and prettier your face and skin tone will appear.
Applying blush on your cheek will not only add a beautiful color to your face, but it will also help you shape your face.
#5. Nobody likes chapped and pale lips
Chapped lips are the main reason why you can’t properly apply your favorite lipstick.
Try to drink plenty of water and moisturize your lips using any lip balm or petroleum jelly as you prefer. Once your lips are well moisturized you can apply your lipgloss. Most importantly you have to Avoid picking or peeling off dead skin from your chapped lips because that will make them look even worse.
#6. Apply fake lashes
False lashes can be a real beauty game-changer.
Applying falsies will create a bold lash line that will immediately give you the appearance of drastically longer lashes. The false lashes come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit your natural eye shape. Just make sure to glue them well otherwise your eyelash might comes off. The main rule to apply fake lashes is to Apply a thin line of lash glue along the base of false eyelashes then place the falsies close to the base of your natural lashes, gently press down from outer corner inwards and stay like that for about 30 seconds just to make sure that your glue is completely dry.
#7. Know your angles
You have to know that nobody is perfect and we all have features that we love and some that we rather hide from the camera. If you, for example, have a larger forehead you might want to raise your chin just a bit and elongate your neck.
Take a look at old photos of yours and observe your most flattering photos and those which doesn’t make you look that glamorous. Once you know your best angles, you will definitely appear more photogenic on your pictures!
