Tip of the Day: Make-up Steps

Once you learn the basics, applying makeup is not as daunting as it seems when you are standing in the midst of a makeup aisle.

cat-eye-lookOn you get these basics down; you will perfect a daytime and nighttime look.

For plush looking lips, grab a colorless lip balm with shimmer, and apply it to the skin just above your cupid’s bow — the area below your nose and between the peaks of your top lip.

Adding light to that area creates the illusion of larger lips.

For perfect-looking skin use a concealer brush to apply cover-up to any pimples, making short, quick motions, like you are spackling.

However be sure your concealer is made with zit-zapping salicylic acid; two separate formulas (zit cream and cover-up) layered will not stick to skin, and set everything in place with a skin-tone matching powder.

To make round cheeks look more chiseled, you will need a highlighting powder and a bronzer that is two shades darker than your skin tone.
