This is the time when we slowly walk into a beauty department and feel somehow frustrated. Why so? Cause there are so many beauty brands, so many versions of one product, so many color variations and each and single one promises you to bring stars from the sky and become the most loved product you’ve ever tried.
The world of beauty, meanwhile is provoking, teasing, scandalizing and daring. So many trends, so many beauty gurus, so many empowering woman and how can one person decide who to believe, who will be the inspiration!? But I will suggest – become your own muse, create your own beauty regimen, get more information about the industry, products, textures and options. So the next time you enter beauty department- you feel confident and walking down the aisle full of lipsticks you know exactly what you are looking for.
1. Go easy on the concealer for a natural look.
Contrary to popular belief, loading up your under eyes with concealer won’t erase those dark circles — in fact, using a ton of cover up looks really unnatural and can make you look older. Instead, use a thin layer of a sheer concealer that evens out your skin tone without covering up your complexion completely. We used: Glossier Stretch Concealer ($18, Glossier.com)
2. Flick your liner downward for a rounder eye.
A cat eye will always be cool, but this Korean makeup trend has got us hooked. Rather than flicking your eyeliner up at the end, drag it downwards towards your cheekbone for a rounder, wider-looking eye.
3. Use face map for your makeup.
Knowing what each part of your eye is called is half the battle when it comes to following along with beauty tutorials. Be sure to add this handy guide to your Pinterest beauty board so you can master your makeup.
4. Set your lipstick with powder through a tissue.
Tired of your lipstick smearing, smudging, or fading throughout the day? Set it with translucent powder — but don’t put it directly on your lips. Instead, blot through a tissue so just the right amount of powder accesses your pout. And follow the rest of this easy lipstick how-to so your color will stay gorgeous as long as possible.
Lipstick is really magical. It holds more than a waxy bit of color- it holds a promise of a brilliant smile, a brilliant day, both literally and figuratively.- Roberta Gately
