Make-Up Tips For a Glamorous Lady Like You

The Foundation

A good foundation is a girl’s best friend. Find a base that matches your skin tone perfectly. It is tempted to choose one that is more tan or more fair, but choosing one that matches the rest of your body will create the most effective and stunning results. There are a wide variety of foundations to choose from: liquid, crème, stick, mousse, and tinted. No matter which one you prefer, the essential key to unlocking your inner beauty is to choose one that matches your natural shade. Remember, always apply foundation in a downwards fashion so as to reduce the effect of any facial hair.

The Blusher

The blusher is a delightful way to add a rosy glow to your cheeks. However, it is often perplexing just how much or just where to apply this touch of brilliance. Apply a minimal amount of blush to the brush, then gently sweep it across the line of your cheekbone, to the apple of your cheek, and all the way to the edge of your hairline. Do this only once to avoid looking as though you suffer from a rash. Additionally, if you want a sun-warm sheen, add a touch of bronzer right below the brush and beneath your eyelids for a goddess-like glow.

For the Eyes

They say that eyes are the windows to the soul, and most probably the first thing that catches the attention of anyone who looks your way. You want to draw people in with dramatic, vibrant eyes. Before applying any eye shadow color, smooth the surface with a layer of neutralizing face powder. Then, lightly sweep the color of your choice across your eyelid up to the point of the crease. For a more dramatic effect, use a dark shade to deepen and intensify the crease followed by a light or shimmering shade closer to the lash line.

Mascara and Liner

Nothing is more elegant than a woman with long lashes. In Egypt, long lashes were renowned for their beauty and grace and the tradition stands today. There are many types of volume enhancing mascaras out there that will add a lift and strength to your lashes, giving you enticing and seductive lashes. Apply the mascara directly after you apply your shadow, that way blackening the powder that may have fallen onto your lashes. Add no more than two coats and use a lash comb to smooth out clumps. Additionally, make use of a lash curler in order to get the longest, most beautiful lash effect. For eyeliner, choose either black or brown and slowly pencil in the kohl across the eyelid. Add a slight amount beneath your lower lid only at nighttime or for a more intense look.

Lipstick

Kissable lips are a must for every lady. But, choosing the right shade of lipstick can be quite a trick. Classic red is a favorite that has been a cherished stick since old Hollywood days, but it is not for every occasion. If you choose a dark lipstick, make sure that your eye-shadow is neutral otherwise you will endure a clashing of cosmetics on your face. For dramatic eyes, choose a light pink or coral, and touch it up with a coat of shiny lip gloss for a soft, sensual effect.
