Makeup Dos and Don’ts
October 15, 2013
The biggest mistake women make is not taking care of their skin. You should always wash your face and apply an appropriate moisturizer for your skin type on your face and don’t forget around your eye area. We age first around the eye area because the skin is like tissue paper. The skin repairs at night when you sleep so make sure you wash off your makeup. Your makeup is only going to look as good as your skin does.
Before you apply your foundation you should apply a foundation primer to smooth and give your foundation staying power throughout the day. The primer will also smooth lines like spackle. Be sure to apply concealer under eyes for dark circles and not use your foundation under your eyes. Apply an eye shadow base to your eye lids before applying eye shadow to ensure your eye shadow stays on and doesn’t crease.
When you apply your mascara and get mascara on your eye shadow your should always wait for it to dry and clean it up with a cotton swab. This will prevent a black smudge of mascara on your eye shadow.
Remember to always take care of your skin first and have fun with your makeup. I love to express my artistic skills through color and makeup everyday. A little blush and lipstick go a long way to brighten your face as well. Don’t be afraid to try. Practice makes… SKIN PERFECT!
