Non-negotiable makeup rules
June 22, 2017, 3:55 pm

The top-of-the-line beauty products in your beauty kit are not enough, unless you have the skills to utilize the products effectively in your daily makeup routine. Here are some non-negotiable makeup rules you can learn from the experts.

Embrace your natural beauty: When wearing makeup, stick to the goal of embracing your natural beauty. Sometimes less really is the best for your overall look.

Let your skin tone guide you: Trying new lipsticks or makeup products can be a tedious task, but there is a surefire way to take the agony out of it — let your skin tone be your guide. Those undertones in your skin (cool, warm or neutral) are what make a color look flattering or fall flat. To figure out what your tone is, think of the colors you look best in. Do you shine in silvers, grays, blues and whites? You are a cool tone. Do you light up in golds, yellows, oranges and reds? Then you have a warm undertone. Can you wear almost every color in the rainbow and still look bright? You are a neutral.

Use double-duty makeup:  Multitasking makeup can do wonders, giving you a great look while being friendly on your budget. Mascara can be used to define lashes and give a little depth with a light swipe to the eyebrows. Stains and tints can be used to brighten the cheeks or bring life to the lips.

Highlight your favorite features:  With a little bit of eye makeup it is possible to enhance your entire appearance. At the very least, a dash of mascara and contour on your cheekbones will work wonders to highlight out your natural beauty. You can even make do with lip gloss to instantly pull an outfit together or just give yourself a little afternoon pick-me-up.

Go big for brows and say no to foundation lines: Eyebrows define the face, so it’s so important to take good care of them. Thin brows make you look older, so don’t overdo it with the plucking. Instead get a brow wax every six to eight weeks. A rule to follow is that foundation and concealer must match your skin. Otherwise it looks fake and obvious.

Brow stencils are a foolproof way to take your brushed-out brows to vixen levels without the worries that go along with free-handing it.

Line your lips:  Statement lip colors are all the rage right now but they require lip liner. If you are wearing a color that will draw attention to your lips, lip liners help keep everything in place and in balance, especially if you are prone to lip color bleeding or feathering after application.

Toss expired makeup and always clean your makeup brushes: The expiration date is one of the most important factors that you must consider before purchasing a makeup product as expired makeup harbors bacteria that causes harm to the skin. You must have clean brushes, always wash and sanitize your makeup brushes after each use. Also spray and wipe any products and any surface they may touch.
