The best tip to success with makeup is DO NOT wear too much! Most men love women who look good without it.
Wearing makeup can be fun! So use it, don't abuse it. Use your makeup to enhance the features on your face such as your eyes and your lips.
Foundation users, make sure you are using foundation that matches your skin color. Blend your foundation giving it a smooth look. For best results wash face and dry. Apply a small amount of foundation. Let dry for a 1-2 minutes, then apply a powder. As for your powder, use one that matches your skin color and don't use too much. Blend your powder well to make sure you have no traces showing of your foundation. It is common to have a line on the side of your face, get out a mirror and make sure yours looks good.
Now we will move to the subject of the lips. Use lip liner and use lipstick. The lip liner makes the lipstick look SEXY. Apply the lip liner onto the natural line of your lip. When applying it, start at the center of your upper lip and draw a line to each outer corner.
If you want your lipstick to stay longer, apply a small amount of your powder on your lips prior to applying the lipstick. When applying the lipstick stretch your lips and start at the center of lips and glide the it to each slide. You may then want to blot it with a tissue and reapply.
Lastly, we will give you some tips on applying eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow. For eyeliner users, use a small line. If you apply too thick of line, it will make you look overdone and will take the focus off the rest of your makeup. Don't forget the mascara.
Use it to enhance your eyes and your eyelashes. Make sure it is applied to the eyelashes smoothly and has no clumps. When it comes to eye shadows, the colors you choose are going to be completely on your and your style. If you are not sure at first, start out using the neutral colors like browns and tans.
You can apply some brown on your eyelid and use a lighter shade on the upper section of your eye. Experiment and blend two colors together to come up with something you think looks good on you.
So now you have some basic makeup tips, start practicing and soon you will find some looks that make you look great. Remember to limit your use of makeup because too much just might make you look silly.
