And another great post from Laura about one of my favorite things to buy and wear: MAKEUP!! Some good tips here! Take note. Love the gold sparkle eye shadow if it is placed correctly.
Makeup is great. It can enhance our best features, and hide things we don’t feel so confident about. Not only that, one item can usually double up to do more than you thought possible! The truth is, you can do a few weird things with your makeup. Continue reading to find out what they are…
Get Bigger Lips
You don’t need to go and have Kylie Jenner style lip fillers to get bigger lips. You can create them all on your own with makeup! It’s all about shading, highlighting, and defining them in just the right way. You can use lots of different products, but it totally depends on what works for you and what you like best. The technique is pretty much always the same though! Start off by exfoliating and moisturising your lips to plump them up a little and smooth them out. Then it’s time to apply your base. Always go over your lips with your foundation, as it helps product to stick to them more. Then use a lighter shade just around the mouth, to highlight your shade. Focus on using highlighter all around the top lip and at the sides of the bottom lip. Underneath the bottom lip, add a small amount of bronzer to add depth. Always line your lips before applying lipstick. Overline ever so slightly if you like, but don’t make it too obvious! This makes them look fuller and more defined. Apply your lipstick. Once you’ve done that, you can then add a lighter lipstick to the middle of your mouth, or even a white highlighting powder. Providing you blend properly and don’t make it look too obvious, this will help your lips to look bigger too! You can then finish off with a dot of lip gloss if you want to give them extra oomph! When you’ve finished your whole face, a facial spray can keep your hard work in place.
Cheekbones can be creating pretty easily these days, all you need is a good highlighter and bronzer to help you. You simply bronze within the hollow area that is created when you suck in your cheeks. I can’t emphasize how important it is to blend here! You then highlight above and below this section to make it stand out even more. If you love doing things like this, you can get special products, such as Anastasia’s contour kit.
Change Your Eye Shape
Changing your eye shape with shadow and liner is really easy. Want sultry cat eyes? You can do a dramatic line on the inside and outside corners of the eye. You can make them look really big and wide too. It’s all about clever placement of shadow and the colours you use.
Go and try these weird things with your makeup to create a bunch of new looks that you just love. With practice, anybody can pull them off. Just make sure you do them in natural light to ensure the best finish!
