Everyone has time to Makeup their faces more attractive.
Making time is the key to applying any cosmetic.
The purpose of a beauty product should be to make the face look more lively, interesting, younger, prettier, or more polished. Making up your face means looking like you, but even better!
These series of posts about makeup is all you need to know to maximize your best assets while minimizing any defects. I’ll show you how to do it whether you have 20 minutes or 20 seconds. You do have time to show your best face to the world.
How Much Time Should You Spend on Your Makeup?
15 minutes? 10 minutes? 5 minutes? 2 minutes?
No matter where you’re going, your usual routine should be no more than 15 minutes. The trick is to change your routine. There is no way that you can apply 15 minutes of cosmetics into a quick 5-minute regimen. You can still look pretty great in just a couple of minutes with my streamlined techniques.
There’s just no excuse for looking naked, tired, or “war-painted” anymore.
Apply Makeup to a Clean Face
For best results, always start with a fresh face.
Think of your face as a blank canvas. You are the artist, and you must start with a clean slate. Your makeup will go on more smoothly, more evenly, and last much longer.
A good foundation is the hardest-working cosmetic you will ever purchase. Choose one that is right for your skin type. An all-in-one foundation that gives adequate coverage is the combination liquid powder duo found at every price level. I especially like the lower-cost lines found in Cover Girl, Revlon, and L’Oreal. They’re less drying than the more expensive brands, and you don’t have to wet them to get a flawless finish.
Do you look good in pure white? Look for “cool” shades.
Do you look better in cream or off-white? Choose “warm” tones.
Take a coral lipstick and a pink lipstick. If your skin more closely resembles the pink, you have pink undertones. The closer match to the coral means that you have a “yellow” undertone.
Now you can take this knowledge and confidently choose your own color at drugstores and mass-merchandise stores.
To get the most out of your facial products, rub a small amount between your hands before applying. This action produces heat, making any cosmetic more spreadable.
I can’t begin to tell you how many complaints I have heard from women who have been given the wrong color by those so-called “experts” behind the cosmetic counters. It’s time for you to become your own expert. After all, who’s been looking at that skin in every kind of light imaginable for all these years?
Furthermore, if you make a mistake at the drugstore, it’s easy to go back and get the next shade (lighter/darker) or even to blend the two at a far less exorbitant price.
