As a woman, there will be times that you’ll realize that you could have looked so much better if only you had used a certain beauty item. That’s what’s called a beauty emergency. Not to sound vain or anything, but looking good is important to us women and we always try to look our best. So it’s best to keep ourselves prepared especially when we are preparing for big events.
While some of us have almost perfect facial features and don’t need to work too much on looking great, the rest of us need a little help. This is why beauty products were invented. Face creams and make up help us in trying to make ourselves look our most stunning yet. Different make up products have different purposes, designed to conceal, highlight or enhance our best and worst features. It is the foundation and concealer’s job to hide our imperfections. Other kinds of make up perform the “highlight and enhance” part. Here are some of them.
Bronzer or cheek tint
Even if vampire flicks are in nowadays, you don’t want to end up looking like a bloodless vampire, or a pale ghost. Hence you have to add a tinge of colour to your cheeks.
Bronzer or cheek tint? It actually depends on the look you want to achieve. If you want a warm, sun kissed glow, bronzer is the cosmetic item for you. If you want rosy looking cheeks and a flushed look, opt for cheek tint. Just make sure not to overdo it. You want sun kissed, not sunburnt; rosy, but not bloody.
Lip gloss and lipstick
Remember how princesses are described in fairy tales? Don’t they always mention that the cheeks of the princess are red? Yes, dear ladies, having attractive lips is important. And what better way to enhance, or even modify, the shape of your lips than by applying lip stick or lip gloss? For sunny outdoor affairs or for entertaining guests at home, lip gloss may be sufficient. For dressier or social affairs, opt for lipstick Choose a colour than complements your skin tone, the rest of your face make up, and even your outfit. Going for cocktails at night? Be brave and put on red or hot pink lipstick, and go all out with that sexy pout. Having lunch at the country club in your khakis and tank top with a shawl over your shoulder? Opt for a medium shade. The shades are endless, and it’s up to you to choose.
Ever heard of the saying, “The eyes are the windows to the soul?” It’s quite true actually, because when you meet a person for the first time, it’s actually that person’s eyes that you’re drawn to look at. Unfortunately, the eyes are often neglected when applying make up to one’s face. People don’t forget to put on lip stick or gloss, or to powder their faces, but they do forget to put on eye liner.
Eye liner is a make up item that you shouldn’t forget to put on. It enhances the shape of your eyes, or makes them bigger, or smaller. And like I said people look at the eyes first, so you might as well mesmerize them with your gaze.
I’m not saying that you need to look like Cleopatra with all that liner on. There are different shades, textures, and forms. There’s pencil, liquid, and more recently, pen. There’s black, brown, blue, white, and more. Choose what’s best for the occasion.
