I love fashion and everything about it. However, there is one aspect of fashion that I have always had trouble with: makeup. I have always loved the look of makeup but never knew how to reproduce the looks.
Makeup is an essential part of a female’s overall make-up in today’s society. More and more we are seeing new ways, new shades, and new products that will enhance our look in different ways. However, with all these new tips and tricks, it is hard to keep straight what to do to your face and when to do it depending on what time of day it is. So I found a great website with some wonderful tips on how to do certain looks with your makeup. http://www.sheknows.com/beauty-and-style/articles/842779/day-to-night-makeup-tips
This website provides tips on the differences between eye liner usage, how much blush to use depending on what time of day it is outside, and what shades of makeup you should use given the time of day. I think these tips are good and important so nobody has experiences like I have had when trying to apply makeup.
One time, when I was first learning how to use makeup, one of my friends decided it was time for me to learn a thing or two about makeup. She showed me how to put on eye shadow and mascara and then asked me to replicate what she had shown me on her. Long story short, when I was finished applying the makeup, my friend looked like she had a black eye.
However, I have gotten better with applying makeup and I want to share my progress with others. I also want to help others so they can recreate the look they want without giving themselves or others fake black eyes.
For an overview, I have learned that when it is day time use more blush, but overall go light on the makeup. You want a look that appears natural or in other words you want the makeup to enhance your inner-beauty.
However, at nighttime, you should definitely play it up and go darker with your makeup. The results will speak for themselves. You will look edgy and your eyes will stand out more from the contrasts of the white in your eye compared to the darkness surrounding the outside of your eyelid.
Although those are the basics of the article, you should definitely check out what the rest has to say. There are some great tips available for people as clueless as me on the whole makeup situation. Articles like these are what help me improve on my lack of skill when it comes to makeup.
The best tip I can give for not only applying makeup, but for life itself is don’t get overwhelmed. Makeup can be tricky at times, but luckily for us, it wipes off pretty easily. So just have fun and play around with it and you will be surprised at all you can come up with to reinvent your own look.
