Make up Makes Perfect

29 Dec
We all want just a perfect make up, that won’t smudge and that does not need to be fixed every few moments. Unless your make up is done by a professional make up artist regularly, you all have experienced all those issues women face, if we make wrong choices. Foundation rubbing off of your clothes, running mascara, lipstick wearing off after just a few sips of your drink…eye shadow forming those odd lines on your eyelids, etc. So, how to keep your make up in place and look gorgeous all night long? Here are some tips!
Foundation
Some people will tell you should be using the brush to apply the foundation. I tried. I spent a pile of money on different brushes and I realized that the most natural look {and, the easiest method!} is using your fingers! The foundation melts under my fingers and makes it easier to apply.
Smooth it over all over your face, your eyelids and to the base of your neck to avoid the two-toned look. Use the concealer after you have applied the rest of your make up, to cover the blemishes or discoloration.
Blush
A cream blusher is the best! It stays on your skin longer, and looks more natural. Choose a soft shade of pink, and use your fingers to apply along your cheekbones. 
Eyes
You should pay the most attention on your eyes, when applying the make up. First, apply eyeshadow. Do NOT use the creamy eyeshadows! It does not matter how much you paid for it, it will not stay  in place, I guarantee! Keep in mind that light colors will make your eyes stand out, while dark colors will deepen your eyes. To make your eyeshadow stay in place, regardless of the color, dip the eyeshadow brush in water before application, and wait until it dries.  
If you choose to apply the eyeliner; pencil, cream/gel or liquid, either one of them, keep in mind the following:
1. Do not use your fingers to create the taut eye! It will cause premature sagging and wrinkles! Use the Q-tip instead! 
2. Always start in the middle and work your way out and in, in small strokes!
3. Use a Q-tip to gently smooth and even out lines!
Mascara will accentuate your eyes and this time of the year you should really go for it! Apply two coats of a black mascara, and than follow with a third coat of silver mascara. This will give a subtle shimmer  to your eyes and make them shine all night long!
Lips
It’s party time, so what’s a girl to do?! Wear red lipstick! Choose the right shade of red for yourself, and to make it stay longer by patting your lips with your forefinger and applying a bit of lip-gloss over it.

There you have it! Now you have no excuse…you gotta look your best for the New Year’s Eve party!
