The Mystic 10 Makeup Must Haves
It’s always been a mysterious and tasking job when women has to decide about his essentials, and picking the essentials which make her look beautiful is all the more confusing. I have always had the same problem about my make-up pocks, and I am sure that many of you too have the same problem.
We often settle with a particular lip gloss, kajol or eye liner and a deodorant in our hand bag, but there are more than a few essentials which we need to carry with us to keep the beauty touch on the roll. Here’s a whole list jotted for you and you can have your picks right away.
The most basic essential and a must-have make up product is the foundation. No matter what your skin type is, be it oily, dry or a combo of both, a perfect foundation lays the base for a good make up. Hence, having a good foundation is very vital. Picking a foundation doesn’t mean you just have to consider the skin type, the skin tone is also very crucial.
Apply clean strokes at your jaw line to find your shade. You can opt for a no-show foundation. The best way of applying a foundation is to apply it with fingers post cleansing and moisturizing.
After the foundation, it’s the concealer which is needed by almost all of us especially, those of us who have troubled skin with spots and marks. The dark circles just need the concealer so much. A concealer is the quickest technique of hiding those skin flaws. But, remember you must be careful on the applying it. The dark circles really need the concealer so before applying a concealer have a non-greasy eye cream under the eyes then dab the concealer with a finger allowing it to get absorbed and then blend it. Lighter strokes are the key.
The Blush is next on the list. But be careful on the right shade for your skin. The blush should make you like you are blushing and not like you have actually applied a blush. Avoid the shimmer in the blush and stick to lighter shades. The blush should be applied at the apples (the section that sticks out with your smile) of the cheeks with a brush and not on the whole cheek.
Now that we have had the base done for our make up lets move to the eyes. The eyes with or without heavy make up must be highlighted. To begin with get an Eyelash Curler. And after curling your eyelashes get the mascara on it. The impact it creates is flawless. Never, curl those lashes after applying mascara.
Toss that old clumpy mascara you have. Get clump free mascara and apply it in a zigzag manner back and forth.
Eyes are sensitive, and need to be highlighted in the best possible. After nice mascara get a perfect glide on eyeliner which glides on without any pressure or tugging, and ensure it is labeled as ophthomalogist-tested.
Remember while lining the upper lash line, press a finger against your brow bone and pull the lid upwards slightly. “Dot” the liner across the tops of lashes with the other hand.
The very basic Eyeshadow, has the touch you need to highlight your eyes. Do not pick eyeshadows which barely show up, neither choose those which make you look like you are decked up for a rock concert. Pick an eyeshadow which is just a little darker than your skin shade a soft plum, light brown, gray or golden beige are few shades. Keep the skin tone in mind while picking an eyeshadow.
Always use a brush to apply the eyeshadow, most of us end up with our finger though. Sweep it across the lids and blend it into the creases. Have lighter strokes and not hard lines.
Now the allover Highlighter is needed. It lifts your brows and slims down your nose sculpting the cheeks. For maximum versatility pick a soft nude, pink or peach. For those who do not fall into that long slim nose category, the allover highlighter is the ultimate savior.
The Matt and the nude shades are an all time favorite for lipsticks. Browns and pinks are the favorite picks for most of us. Stick to them. They are an all season lip shades. But be careful if you have chapped lips. Nivea Kiss of Relief SOS Lip Balm could certainly help you with the chapped lips. Have a thick layer of Nivea Kiss of Relief SOS Lip Balm to bed for softer lips.
Recommendation: Bobbi Brown Nude Lipsticks
Now this is the list of all the essentials a women needs to set the right look for any season and occasion.
