Prepare your (facial) skin
It can never be over emphasized how important it is to take care of your skin. Remember that your makeup is only going to look as good as your skin looks.
3 steps for prep’n your face before makeup:
- Cleanse/wash your face.
When you take time to prep your skin, it will help your makeup last longer.
- There’s a certain “pop” false lashes gives the eyes. You want an instant glam? Then apply falsies along your upper lid and finish the look with a winged eyeliner!
- Conceal uneven coloration/dark circles around your eyes using a concealer close to your skin color. Apply in a dabbing motion.
Flush with a blush hun! A skin-warming cheek color is key to completing any makeup look. (cc: my darling sister Paula who never allows me blush her cheeks).
Tip: Be mindful where you apply the hues. The older you are, the higher up on your cheekbones you should focus the color.
A bronzed/sun-kissed glow is the next best thing in makeup these days. Apply on your T-zone (forehead and nose) sparingly, then finish with a brush across your cheek bones and the pointy of your jaw.
