Makeup can do wonders on your face. With makeup you can accentuate your favourite feature and also camouflage your least favourite features. Following are few ways to use makeup to make your least favorite features look great.
Begin by applying concealer in a shade that's one level lighter than your skin to the most recessed area of your eye contour: That's usually the area around the inner corner. Pat with a finger to blend. Then use an eye shadow primer to even out the tone of your lids. Now, use an eye shadow brush to sweep a light shade with a touch of shimmer from lash lines up to your brow bones. Go for a beige, bone, or taupe. With a tapered contour brush, sweep a medium shadow along your creases. This darkening of the crease will cause the lighter lid to pop, making eyes look wider. Finish by curling lashes and applying mascara.
A Wide Nose
Begin by choosing a bronzer in a light shade -- you want a color that looks natural on you, not orange. Use a small powder brush to lightly sweep bronzer down each side of your nose. This is called contouring, and will give a subtle shadow to the sides of your nose, making it look narrower. Dust more bronzer on your cheeks and forehead. Now take a clean powder brush and blend, blend, blend the bronzer on your nose. You should be left with the hint of a shadow down your nose -- not two dirty-looking stripes! Finish your look by defining eyes with liner and mascara.
Begin by washing and drying the area surrounding the scar. Use a fine concealer brush to apply your specialty cover-up to the scar and the area surrounding it. Your cover-up should match your skin tone exactly, so there's no obvious ring of color around the scar. Set the cover-up with a setting powder made to go with it. Then play up the feature that's farthest away from your scar, so the eye is drawn to the color on your eyes or lips, not to the scar.
Blush and bronzer are your key products here. Begin by applying your usual face products, such as foundation or powder. Next, dip a fluffy blush brush into bronzer. Pick a bronzer shade that's very close to your natural shade, so the effect is believable, not obvious. Now suck in your cheeks. Sweep the bronzer along the hollow that forms under your cheekbones. When you're done, use another blush brush to apply a soft-colored blush to the apples of your cheek. The final, crucial step: Use a clean powder brush to blend the contour bronzer and blush together, so there's no obvious stripe of bronzer or blush on your skin.
