Every great look needs that special touch to give it a cohesive feel. A great outfit only looks its best when it’s paired with the right shoes, accessories, hair, and most of all makeup. While we can’t all be professional makeup artists, we can create fabulous looking makeup to top off our look by following these easy tips.
One essential makeup tip that everyone should know how to do is the smoky eye. The smoky eye is not just for hot night wear, it can also be used for day wear when toned down a bit, and is a great way to always make sure your eyes stand out. To pull off the smoky eye start by choosing three shades of eye shadow that are similar in color and slightly graduate in shade. Choose the medium shade for the lid of the eye, the darkest shade for the crease of the eye, and the lightest shade for the upper brow. Use different types of brushes to blend the shades better, use a sharp, angled brush for the dark shadow in the crease and a rounder, wider brush for the lid and brow. To make the eye really pop, add eyeliner, and to make the eye appear wider, add a dab of lighter shadow at each corner of the eye.
For natural looking lips that look also look shiny and great, try these easy lip tips. One thing you can do to add to your lips is to use a lip liner that is a close to your lipstick shade, this will add definition to your lips and keep the color confined in the lip area without looking like you’ve traced a dark shape around your lip line. Another tip is to add a clear gloss to your lip shade; this will give your lips an extra shine and help keep your color intact longer.
