Makeup has become a solution to most women’s problems. Just like weaves do for women who wish to have any kind of hair be it Brazilian, straight Indian among others, all they have to do is buy a weave and have the hair they always wanted to have. Makeup does the same thing. One can completely transform one’s look if they want to or simply highlight their best features and hide the rest.
Makeup has become the ultimate immediate solution to uneven skin tone, blemishes, dark lips, rashes, oily skin among so many other issues that women cover up. Ladies, here are a few make up tips for a busy day.
- Avoid too much makeup.
You certainly do not want to wear too much makeup only to have it melt on a hot day or get messed up terribly when it rains. If you are going to have a busy day, try to use minimal makeup. Go for a more natural look. Something that will not cause you any embarrassment should it be too hot or too wet. We tend to put on make up and forget we could possibly meet someone who we might need to hug and we all know what a lot of foundation can do to someone’s white shirt.
- Keep it simple.
Use mascara and leave out the eyeliner as sometimes it can look too heavy when you sweat. The mascara is enough to highlight your eyes and make them pop. You will not have to worry about the combination of sweat and eyeliner look.
- Blot the shine off your face.
For those with oily skin, remember to carry a dubber or a powder brush. That way, you can easily blot the shine off your face from time to time and keep your makeup looking fresh.
- Use a bronzer.
Bronzer can be a tricky product to use if you’re running late. However, dust a little under your cheek bone, along your jawline, and LIGHTLY along your hairline for a little depth. You will be surprised what it can do for you.
- Invest in a tinted moisturizer.
It has a sheer coverage and takes very little time to blend in. It will cover all the acne, blemishes and uneven skin tone in an instant. avoid using too much of it.
- Always have a good nude lipstick in your collection.
Nude lipstick will go well with the natural look that you are trying to pull off on a busy day. You can never go wrong with nude lipstick. It will work for all events without you having to worry about it being too much or too little. It is always just right.
- Remember to fill in your eyebrows with eye pencil.
While some may think that you can skip this step on a busy day, filling in your brows will elevate a simple look to the next level. Eyebrows are that one feature you should not ignore as they do the most highlighting on your face. They bring out your beauty completely.
- Check your lipstick.
This is the most important of them all. Check your lipstick once you are done with your make up to ensure it did not smudge on your teeth. Take precaution and put your lips together with a piece of paper in between them and press lightly to remove excess lipstick.
- Have a good skin care regime.
Wash off the makeup every day before you go to bed. Sleeping with makeup on is not healthy for your skin as your pores will not get time to breathe. It is important to let your skin breathe after a long day of being covered in makeup.
- Embrace your face and go makeup-less.
Try going out without makeup once in a while. Your skin could use the break any way. Put on a lip-balm and step out of the house. Your ready to go and run the errands you were supposed to without a worry in the world. remember to carry a handkerchief to wipe the sweat off your face when you need to.
