Make-Up Secrets The Celebrities Know And Use
By Stephanie Elms
You may be thinking to yourself that in order to have the same glow and perfect complexion the celebrities flaunt, you will need to employee one of Hollywood’s top make-up artists. Not so! Some of the tricks that the make-up artist use are very simple and easy to recreate on an affordable budget. Here are some tips discussed in Glamour magazine that you can use to create the perfect make-up by yourself and in the comfort of your own home.
• For a clean fresh look. Consider opting for shades of pink. This works will all skin tones and adds a very sophisticated look. For eyeshadow, go with a sheer product. Don’t go too harsh with the lipstick, a lighter shade will work best. For blush, a rosy color works best with this look. A light tinted moisturizer will provide a flawless canvas in which to build your fresh look without being too “make-upy” looking.
• For a sheer radiant look. This is such a popular look for the summer but can also really add some pop in the winter months when sun exposure is limited. The key to achieving this look is bronzer. It helps to create a foundation for the bronzer to sit by using a moisturizer first. If you need to even out your skin tone, consider a tinted moisturizer. Apply the powder bronze to the temples, cheeks, jawline, and the bridge of the nose. Make sure the bronzer suits your skin tone and blend well. To finish off the look you can simply apply mascara and a coral lip gloss.
• For the dressy upscale look. This look can be used anytime but is often most appropriate for nighttime. Go with neutrals on the eyes, lips, and cheeks using shimmery products. For a more dramatic finish apply fake lashes and a bit of bold black eyeliner. If you want to let the eyes radiate, just go with a nude lipstick. For more punch, consider a red lipstick.
The most important thing to remember is that practice makes perfect. You can easily get these looks but sometimes you’ll need to tweak each tip to work best for your skin tone, hair color, and skin type. There is nothing worse then a dramatic foundation line along your jaw, or overdone blue eyeshadow that screams 1980!
