Charlie Chaplin said "I had no idea of the character. But the moment I was dressed, the clothes and the make-up made me feel the person he was. I began to know him, and by the time I walked onto the stage he was fully born." This quote reflects the importance of beauty and makeup and that it can change the perception of people.
There are certain things that require prior knowledge. These include: foundations, eye shadows, eye liners, concealers, lipsticks and many more. Foundations are flesh-toned cosmetics applied to facial skin for creating an even and uniform complexion. Concealers are used to hide pimples and blemishes. Eye shadows and eyeliners are used to darken the eyelids to make them prominent. And lipsticks are used to make the lips prominent and reflect the beauty of the lips.
There are hundreds of beauty and makeup tips. Some of the more prominent and widely used beauty tips include the proper application of foundation on face, the use of eye shadows and eye liners, the proper use of lipsticks and how to conceal blemishes and pimples. Using foundation is important as it helps in unifying and smoothen the color of the facial skin. Use a foundation-powder of a renowned company which has been tested for any side effects. This will help in preventing allergies.
Apply the foundation-powder on your arm to get a match for your skin. Sometimes the foundation-powder seems to have the same color while there is a difference. Apply the foundation smoothly and gently on your facial skin. As the facial skin is very sensitive, a hard rub can cause skin damage. Don't keep on applying the foundation-powder again and again to match the skin color instead use another one which is a closer for your skin color. Using too much foundation powder can cause skin damage because foundation is a cosmetic made of different elements. Gentle rub and less quantity of foundation-powder is the best way.
In order to portray a darker look of the eyebrows, the eyeliners are used. Be sure to use eyeliner that is well-known and is tested for side effects. Eye is the most delicate and sensitive part of the body, the eyeliner should be appropriately used. Use a sponge applicator for eye lining. Tilt your head and keep your eyes half open so that you can see yourself in the mirror while applying the eyeliner. Using a pencil eyeliner is much easier then the liquid eyeliner although the liquid eyeliner provides a brighter and bolder look to the eye.
One main part of a simple makeup includes the use of lipstick. Choose the lipstick that best matches your skin tone and the color of the cloths you are wearing. Matching a lipstick can be a little hectic. Clean your lips with a tissue paper before applying the lipstick. Apply the lipstick to the lower lip first and then press the lips together to transfer some part of the lipstick to the upper lip. This will help in smoothing the surface of the lip. Now cover the remaining part of the lips and then place a tissue paper in between the lips and press them together. This will help in creating a uniform layer of lipstick. All these tips are for a basic and simple makeup and are very effective.
