well!! well!!!! well!!!!!!
dangel eyez has seen enough makeup disaster and its time to blog about it. Some girls lovee to use makeup, some can't do without it and some think it is not neccessary. Well, people are entitled to their opinion about makeup!!
I am a makeup fan and i love the art of it as long as it is used RIGHT.
so this is makeup tips,tricks,dos and don'ts 101
The thing is many girls forget the first rule of using makeup "LESS IS MORE" and use everything at once and in the wrongest way possible(oh me gosh , you have no idea!!)and what you get is a really good masquerade look and please this rule also applies to the regular white powder.
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THIS
YES!! a lot of girls/ladies/women end up looking like this sometimes and go out feeling "hawt!!"lol .. we really need to be careful.
I love makeup and I constantly search for great makeup tips/tricks/dos n don'ts and it really helps. so I am going to share it with you.
dangel eyez will really appreciate if other eyez(other people) get to post other makeup tips not mentioned here or makeup errors you have seen. we are all here to learn!! so have fun telling us about your own makeup tips,tricks,dos and donts.
Once again the FIRST RULE which must remain at the back of your mind while you do your makeup is
RULE 1: LESS IS MORE- Thou shalt not forget!!.
What you get from putting too much is an artficial look and I am positive that your intention is not for people to think you put a terrible mask on. :D :D
makeup is meant to enhance your natural beauty, make you really look beautiful.
Another thing is if you put so much effort to your eyes then make sure the lips aint shouting "look at me too". okay people, What I'm I trying to say is
RULE 2: Thou shalt not overdo both...If you are rocking the lips, let the makeup for the eyes be really soft and vice versa.
For example: don't put on a really shouting gold colour on your eyes and a loud RED color for your lips..(you get the picture right?) like who are you trying to confuse durrling??
allow me to give you examples of what I mean by this simple rule number 2
RIHANNA AND CHRISTINA'S LIPS ARE GORGEOUS AND YOU ARE NOT DISTRACTED BY THEIR EYE MAKEUP BECAUSE THEY KEPT IT SIMPLE.
AND FOR THE LAST LADY....she worked the eyes and kept the lips looking soft and simple...now THATS WHAT I MEAN!!!
THE DAY LOOK
During the day, try not to forget that the sun does shine!! so pleasee go soft on the eyeshadow or all everyone you come across will be seeing are the colors on your eyes and not your pretty eyes. stay away from colors with glitters or shinning colors and make it soft .
|so this is a bit more colorful than the remaining two but you can still rock this during the day. its soft, pretty and has no glitters..its a fun summer look|
THE NIGHT LOOK
yay!! no sun!!... still i go with soft and less but ofcourse you can play with colors and bring out the glittery ones but play safe. try not to overdo it.
Make sure your face is clean and use a good moisturizer. Start applying makeup about 4mins after moisturizer.
At so many points I'm going to be screaming in this blog like right now ...GET THE COLOR OF FOUNDATION THAT IS THE SAME WITH YOUR SKIN COLOUR (screaming out loud) I know a lot of girls that just want to be fair when they are OBVIOUSLY NOT, cannot remember when black stopped being gorgeous.
ANYWAIZZ drop that foundation if its not your color(whether its too dark or not) and go with the other one that is. Its really sad to see the difference in the color of the face and body on many girls. why would anyone prefer to look like they are wearing a mask???
RULE 3: make sure you test the foundation by applying it to around your jawline area under good light(prefarably sunlight)
Use a concealer(the same color as your foundation) for dark spots on your face. Apply your foundation with a brush or foam/sponge(depends on what you call it). I prefer to use the brush and I do not buy the idea of using fingers(not hygienic).
Apply your powder with a powder brush which helps to put the required amount of powder on your face. You can also use a foam but be sure to remember RULE 1.
First of all shapen your eyebrows, it makes a whole lot of difference.trust me!!
RULE 4: Properly shapen your eyebrows. It truly truly makes a beautiful difference.
personally, I am not good with using eye pencils for my eyebrows yet so as you can see from the picture above, I dont make my eyebrows too thin when I shapen them.
Talking about eye pencils, please and please do not use colors for your eyebrows, i just really get confused when I see a lady who has shaved off her eyebrows, only to be DRAWING eyebrows in OTHER COLORS than black especially wine...not good, not good!!
By the way, when I mean black , please go for a soft black color/dark brown not the really dark ones, like I said its all about enhancing the natural look not searching for an artificial one.
so stop the excessive drawing in various colors other than soft black/dark brown, make sure it looks natural.
For those of us that cannot use the eye pencil, I use mascara sometimes to brush it upward or I use a black eyeshadow on it, applying with an eyeshadow brush. Remember I dont make them too thin when i shapen them so with a little eyeshadow or mascara, it looks a bit darker and still natural.
EYEZ,EYEZ,EYEZ..i love eye makeup especially when its beautifully/properly done.
So rock soft colors and try to leave the glitters at home during the day and you can play with colors and bring out the glitters at night.
Most of the time, basically use the color you wish to use at the bottom then above it an earthy dark shade and below your eyebrow(brow bone), a bright color prefarably a soft cream color that will not look ridiculous with your skin color …I am sure you have seen plenty women with so much gold close to their eyebrow, its not supposed to be too much. It is meant to bring out your really shaped brows, the idea is just to brighten that area nicely...not too much!!
I love using eyeliners.Took me a while to learn how to apply the liquid ones, anyways now there are the ones you can just roll on. Well eyeliners are cool and mascara is a must-do because it makes your lashes look great.
"oh! dear dear blush, how lots of ladies have misused you"....yes!yes!!yes!!! blush is not meant to turn you from your natural colour to RED...OR PINK.
When it comes to blush, I enforce the "less is more rule". first of all, you cannot just use any colour of blush, you have to check your skin colour/tone. pink or peach looking coloured blushes are prefarable for fair people(in my opinion), dark-skinned girls can rock the red looking ones and probably fair-skinned girls too..well, just like foundation get the right colour of blush and dont put too much!!!
|like the lady here, it should not be too much|
when you're done
IMPORTANT..blush is to be applied with a blush brush and if you dont like smiling well you just have to smile every morning to apply your blush. lol! I'M SERIOUS!! as you can see the lady above. Smile and apply the blush to the apple of your cheeks(the part that comes up and looks cute and cheeky..lol hope you get??), now use the brush to smoothen the blush upwards so it appears like its fading upwards. do not cover your whole cheek with blush.
If you must use a lipliner, you should try using one with the same color as the lipstick. Then so that it does not just look like a LINE, blend it with your lip brush, i mean just slightly use the lip brush to brush the lipliner upwards. This way it blends nicely with your lipstick. Then apply a lipgloss to finish it up!!
Lets not forget darling readers that too much of everything is bad..So here goes our next rule
RULE 5: make sure to remove makeup before you go to bed, to prevent having pimples, spots and the rest of that family..lol
I also believe that you do not need to use makeup everyday, i mean you should allow your face breathe once in a while by not applying any makeup on it maybe on days that you just want to relax at home.
