Go From Ordinary to Extraordinary with Flawless, Glamorous Makeup
By Sheena Shaw
When I was a little girl, I always wanted to play in my mother's makeup. It made me think I was a grown-up and pretty. It is mostly true that every girl has worn or wanted to wear makeup. To cover those slight imperfections on your face and look as beautiful as possible, makeup can do it all. There are all sorts of good makeup products on the market today, but you have to choose the one that is best for your skin. In addition, having the correct brushes and cleaning them appropriately is a great tip, not only to improve your skin, but to ensure that the colors you apply give you the look you want.
Selecting brushes should depend on what works well with your complexion, but is affordable as well. MAC brushes or Sonia Kashuk brushes, sold at Target stores, are good brush brands. Some must have brushes are the following: foundation brush, concealer brush, powder brush, blush brush, blending brush, eyebrow brush, eye shadow brush, and lip brush. On average, brushes range less than ten dollars to two hundred and fifty dollars a brush. So, choose wisely. Cleaning your makeup brushes can help them last longer. You can clean them with baby shampoo and water or use antibacterial wipes. After cleaning the brushes, you should reshape the brushes and let them air dry.
When choosing a makeup product, it is wise to sample the makeup your interested in to see how well it will complement your skin tone. You should dab your finger on a color you like and rub it on your skin and look to see the quality of the makeup. This just means if the makeup sticks or not. Pick a palette that is compatible to you. Two basic colors that look great, on pretty much anyone's face, are the colors gold and bronze. Key tip: not all colors look the same on everyone.
MAC is an excellent product, but is very expensive. Some say the formulas are irritating and that could be the case in some situation, but if you take care of your skin, take off the makeup before bed, and actually wash your face will give you beautiful results. MAC is just a high-quality brand overall. If you like to have fun with makeup, this product is for you! Their crazy colors and wild creations really show that the owner of this company looks at makeup as art.
Another great makeup product is Sephora. Sephora acknowledges that not all complexions are alike, so they offer multiple color options. This product works on wet or dry skin. This product is good for women all ages. I recommend this palette. It is a great buy, eight shades for only $26. These colors will take you through the spring, summer, fall, and even winter.
Why do we use makeup? Well, women have used makeup for ages. It makes you more attractive and feminine. You can express your creativity, your beauty, and hide any flaws. Let makeup be your friend and embrace it!
