Following the below makeup tips can make your skin appear healthier and flawless. Your jawline slimmer and your eyes big and attractive. Resulting in your Instagram feed instantly looking more Insta-worthy!
Work on your Eyes
Eyes are the most important and attractive features of the face. Therefore, give them a little extra attention! Go into detail, making them appear all highlighted, awake and attractive is your goal.
To do this;
- Apply bold liner to add contrast on the lids
- Highlight the inner corners of the eyes and brow bones
- Add white shade to the waterline
- Add a dark brown shade to the outer corners.
Combing these four tricks will help make your eyes look bigger and more beautiful.
Sculpt your Face and Make it Glow
If you want your skin to appear healthy and glowing start with using a good-quality oil-free moisturizer. The next tool in your arsenal for glowing skin is to highlight above your cheekbones. Highlighter, when combined with an appropriate contour as well, will not only help brighten up the skin but also make it appear more sculpted. Divert people’s attention to specific areas of your face by adding highlight to them while shadowing the others by contouring.
Using highlighters and contours will actually help you change the shape of your face. So if you have some problem areas or want an overall slimmer profile practice using both.
Rose up Your Cheeks and Bronze up your Temples!
If your skin looks too pale in photos blush and bronzer will be your friends. Try adding creamy and powdery blush to your cheekbones. The blush will give the colour extra prominence. Use a cream blush with a blender and tap it on to your cheeks and a bit on your nose. Then, take the shade in powder form and use a buffing brush to gently dab it on your skin. This will give the cheeks a nice flush and the camera will capture the pigment perfectly as well this way.
Take a similar approached with bronzer applying to the areas of your face that the sun naturally hits. For example, your temples, outline of your face, including your jawline and a little on your neck. Bronzing first and then applying your blush gives a more polished look.
Keep Your Lips Bold and Contoured Nicely
Lips are another important feature of the face and using a dull and boring shade can make you appear washed out and turn your photo into a tired-looking one. Go for bold and pigmented lip shades in keeping with your eye and blush colours. Contour your lips first with a slightly darker shade to add definition and make them appear a little plumper.
