Make Up

All women have the same desire: they want to look always beautiful every time, day or night. Especially the working girls and women try to make themselves look as prettier as they can. Make-up is the A to Z to a perfect appearance. For some women make-up is a simple task; however for some others it seems too difficult. No matter how busy you are, make-up is simple. If you have a well organized make-up drawer, it usually takes no more than 10 minutes. As you realize practice is the key.There are 10 steps for a perfect make-up:
Preparation

A basis for make-up is needed. After cleaning your face with cleaning lotion or soap, moisten with tonic and then use your eye cream, Then you can use your day cream for a fresh-looking skin. For normal skin, use a lightweight moisturizing lotion; for dry skin, use a rich hydrating cream or balm and for oily skin, use an oil-free formula to control oil production.

1st STEP: Corrector. First, use a peach-toned corrector to neutralize darkness. Apply with a brush to the deepest or darkest areas especially the eye area to prepare for concealer.

2nd STEP: Concealer. Next, use a concealer based on your skin color and lay over the corrector. Use a concealer brush, apply underneath the eye up to the lash line and on the innermost corner. Then pat with your fingers to blend the concealer.

3rd STEP: Foundation. Use a brush or sponge or fingers to apply foundation where the skin needs to be evened out, usually around the nose and mouth. For all other areas, use a brush, sponge or fingers to apply and blend foundation to the outer edges of the face. To cover blemishes, apply on the spot foundation stick or blemish-cover stick in a shade that matches the skin tone exactly. Pat with your finger to blend and repeat if necessary.

4th STEP: Powder. For a non creasy face, first apply a loose powder in the correct shade of your skin tone or one tone lighter, over concealer using a powder puff. Then apply powder to the rest of the face using a powder puff or powder brush.

5th STEP: Blush. To put blush correctly smile and apply a shade of blush on the apples of the cheeks. Use a power brush and blend up towards the hairline. For a natural looking, use peach or rose pastel shades. For an extra glow, put more powder or use a creamy formula applied with your fingers.

6th STEP: Lipstick. Start with a lip pencil to draw the lips outline. You can choose a dark shade relevant to your lipstick. Use a lip brush to apply the lipstick. Darker and intensive colors require precise application.

7th STEP: Brows. First, define brows using shadow or pencil in the color of your eyebrows and hair. To apply shadow, begin from the inner corner of the brow and follow its natural shape using light, feathery strokes.

8th STEP: Eye shadow. First, apply a layer of a white or a light eye-shadow to the area from the lash line to the brow bone. Then apply a medium eye-shadow color on the lower area of the lid, up to the crease. Apply dark eye-shadow color to fleshy part of lid as a correction and to add depth to eye.

9th STEP: Eyeliner. Use dark shadow color eyeliner to line the upper lash line very carefully. Then, look straight ahead to see if there are any gaps that need to be filled. Avoid the very thick lines. If you want to line the lower lash line, make sure the top and bottom lines meet at the outer corner of the eye. The lower line is usually softer.

10th STEP: Mascara. Choose your mascara based on your needs and the effect that you desire. Thickening mascara gives a denser look to lashes and is ideal if you have a sparse lash line. For lashes that are enhanced but natural-looking, choose defining and lengthening mascaras. When applying mascara, hold the mascara wand parallel to the lower line of your eye and brush from the base of the lashes to the edge. While you roll the wand try to separate the lashes and avoid clumps. Always apply more than one coat; two or three coats are enough.
As you see, make up needs special care and attention. It’s a simply procedure that needs only a few minutes. Just pay attention to choose your make-up products from a huge range of products on the market with different tones and textures and you will be surprised by the result.
