In case you didn’t know this, there are some special things you should consider when applying makeup if you’re wearing glasses. You would think it’s complicated enough to have to wear those all the time and know you find out you also need special makeup techniques. Well it’s actually not as bad as it seems. In fact, the fact that you’re wearing glasses may be a good thing.
Looking young and fresh is something we all prefer but sometimes you can achieve the opposte if you make the wrong choices when it comes to makeup. It’s easy to make these mistakes if you’re not careful and usually this happens when you try too much.
One of the most common makeup mistakes women make is wearing too much bronzer. It’s understandable to want a flawless look but wearing bronzer across the whole face can make you look older.
Not happy with the way your eyes look? Surely they would look more interesting if they were bigger. Although you can’t actually modify the size and shape of your eyes, you can make them seem bigger. There are lots of ways to do that. For example, have you tried curling your lashes? It can really open your eyes. Apply a coat of mascara and you’ll see the difference.
You can also try the trick makeup artists always use: apply white or light eye shadow onto the inner corner of your eyes. It also helps to keep the area around your eyes bright. As you know, dark eye shadow can make your eyes seem smaller so, naturally, light eye shadow has the opposite effect. Another trick you can try is to apply highlighter onto the inner corner of your eyes along the brow bone.
It’s so obvious when someone makes an eye makeup mistake. But have you ever wondered that you could make similar mistakes without even noticing? Don’t be that girl everyone talks about behind her back and don’t make the mistakes you often make fun about. For example, it’s ok to like nude makeup but not wearing any is not exactly great. Try at least to apply mascara or some eyeliner.
A big no-no in eye makeup is using too much sparkle. It’s understandable to want to make your eyes the focal point of your face but make sure you don’t exaggerate. Don’t go too far with the sparkle or glitter because that will be the only thing people see when looking at you.
A girl has to look pretty all the time or at least that’s the dream. But making sure that happens doesn’t have to be a full-time job. There are easier ways to do it, basic things like staying hydrated. Speaking of which, hydrating yourself is crucial when you have a hangover. So drink lots of water and avoid coffee. Despite what some people believe, coffee is not good for you at this moment.
Now let’s see what else you can do to stay beautiful after a crazy night in the club. Drinking water is not enough. You also have to take care of your skin. First moisturize your face and only then apply makeup. The skin gets dry and dehydrated too. If you have the time, it would be great to also apply some cool teabags, cucumbers or ice to your eyes. It helps reduce swelling and it makes you look fresh and alive.
You might also want to add some color to your cheeks so use blush to give your skin a healthy glow. You might also want to avoid dark eye liners at this point. Try instead nude shades. They’ll make you look more awake. Apply neutral eye shadow and curl your lashes. Apply mascara and you’re ready to get out in the world again.
We spend a lot of time applying makeup and not nearly enough time removing it. It’s very important to have a proper cleansing routine. So let’s see what’s the best way of removing your makeup and protect your skin at the same time.
First of all, you should know that, although wipes can make things quicker and easier, they’re usually not enough. You need to insist a little bit if you want all the makeup to be gone and the skin to remain clean. The best way to remove eye makeup is to soak a couple of pads in remover and to hold and pat them into the eyes. This will soften and remove the makeup without harsh rubbing or pulling.
The color of your eyes can greatly influence your makeup technique and strategy. Blue eyes, for example, can make things a little more difficult because not all eyeshadow colors make them look great. My favorite eye makeup color for blue eyes is black because the contrast is amazing and dramatic.
The eyes are the most important feature of a person’s face so make them stand out for a memorable first impression. For those of you with blue eyes, there are lots of options, although not as many as for brown eyes for example. We’ve already mentioned black as a great accent color. The eyelashes are also very important so don’t neglect them.
Everyone has a specific type of makeup they like and thus a favorite style of a favorite color. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t experiment and try new things every once in a while. For example, what do you think about glitter makeup? Of makeup you can wear every day but it’s definitely suitable for special occasions like the holidays for example.
Glitter makeup is not necessarily very sparkly although it can be if this is what you want. It can also be subtle and romantic. This is closely related to the colors you prefer. For example, blue eye makeup plus glitter will always be eye-catching. The same thing goes for colors like green or pink. But if you choose a color like, let’s say brown or even purple, you can tone down the terry look.
