Kiss and Make-up with Your Makeup routine

Using makeup is a great way to add years of youth back fast, but when these magical powders, creams, sticks and potions are used incorrectly, they can have just the opposite effect. Read the following list and if you find that you are applying makeup in a way that we mention, don’t fret, we can help.

5 Makeup Mistakes Your Making

Skipping Foundation

With a lack of time, you may be skipping this step but don’t. A good quality foundation that is right for your skin tone will provide benefits of balancing your skin providing an even tone and a youthful appearance for a flawless, polished look. Even a painter starts with an even canvas before applying the first brush stroke.

Clowning around with Blush

Blush should look like, well a blush. Stay away from putting blush just on the apples of your cheeks, no one is flattered with a clown-like round of color right there. Apply blush with a brush lightly up along your cheekbone, using the center of your eye as a starting point. This will also have the benefit of pulling your face upward, slimming it.

Lip Liner

Don’t want to get dated with a makeup technique that everyone has moved passed. Heavily lined lips will take your look back to the Clinton Era. And if you go outside your lip’s natural line, lip color can emphasize fine lines around the mouth. The solution, match your lip liner to the color of your lipstick or your natural lip color. Also remember, lip liner has two jobs; define your lips and hold your lipstick in check.

The eyes are said to be the windows of the soul

Don’t line just the bottom lid when applying eye liner. It makes your eyes look small and bottom heavy, dragging down your face. If you’re going to use eyeliner do both the upper and lower lids, applying close to the lash lines. Go ahead and gently smudge the lines to lighten the look. You could also use a product like LashesMD to pump up your lashes instead. Ask about LashesMD at your next visit.

Neglecting you brows

Thin brows can give away your age faster than small-town gossip. Grab a pencil in a color that’s slightly lighter than your natural hue and fill them in with quick, short strokes. Follow with a brow brush to blend and soften.

If any of these confuse you, don’t worry you are not alone. Want some help, just come on in and ask anyone of the team at the Broadway Centre Spa and Salon in downtown Bismarck.
