Wearing makeup is one of the most noticeable enhancements you can apply. When applying makeup remember to strive for a subtle more natural look, rather an overdone, heavier one. Makeup can enhance your best features and mask over some of your less attractive ones. Be sure and choose the right color of foundation and powder for your silk mink eyelash extensions tone. There are four different skin color types: fair, light, medium and dark, these different skin colors can have either a warm, cool or neutral tone. Be careful not use a color that is too light or it will give you a chalky look.
The following is the basics of makeup application.
Aastm Foundation – Comes in cream, liquid or a mousse form and it should be applied with light upward strokes. Blend in a little at a time until it is even and smooth. Don’t forget under your chin, use downward silk mink eyelash extensions to blend the foundation into your neck color.
Concealer – Can be a stick, wand or a cream type, it is slightly lighter and thicker than your foundation is. The main purpose of concealer is to hide blemishes, discolorations, and dark circles under your eyes. Be careful not to apply too much under the eyes, just enough to lighten the area slightly.
Powder – The color tone of your powder should be the same as your foundation is. It can be applied with a brush or round puff applicator. Lightly brush the powder over your face until it has covered all the foundation and there are no more shiny areas.
Eye Brow Pencil – Is a pencil that is formulated for silk mink eyelash extensions, the color you choose should be as close to your hair color as possible. You should use small, feathery strokes as follow your natural brow line and always use a sharpened pencil. If your brows look too dark, you can dust them with a little powder and they will look more natural.
Eye Shadow – Usually in powder form, eye shadow can give your eyes a more highlighted and dramatic look. Light, matte colors are for the area under the brow, this highlights your eyes. The dark colors are usually applied in the crease between your eye and eyebrow, this defines your eyes. A medium tone is brushed across the top of your eyelids, to bring color to your eyes.
Eye Liner – Comes as a pencil, crayon or in liquid form, eye lining is the most effective way to define you eyes. There are many choices in color such as; brown, black, grey, even blue and green. Draw a line under your bottom silk mink eyelash extensions without going too close on the inner eye, just stay under the growth of your lashes. You can also, draw a line across your upper eyelid on the top of your eyelashes. Wearing eye liner takes skill and practise, but the more you apply it, the better you will do.
Mascara – Is brown or black and is brushed on with a wand, to darken, thicken and lengthen your eye silk mink eyelash extensions. Mascara is the finishing touch of the your eye makeup application, it opens up the look of your eyes. Without mascara your lashes may not be visible at all, even if you don’t wear any other makeup, you should consider wearing mascara.
Cheek Color – Also known as blush, it usually comes in power form and is brushed on.
It comes in peach, rose, mauve and copper tones and should blend in with your natural skin tone. Remember when brushing it on, that subtle color is what you want.
Lip Color – You may prefer lipstick or lipgloss just be sure the color you choose goes with your natural skin tone. If you are fair or light, you need to stay away from bold, dark colors and stick with light, muted ones. If you have medium or dark silk mink eyelash extensions, you look better wearing the darker, bold colors. Always be careful applying lipstick, to keep it from looking unnatural, blot your lipstick with a tissue after you put it on.
