Makeup had essentially been a feature-enhancing process for not just women, but also men. Makeup had not always been applied throughout the face, but in today’s time, it’s more than just a layer. Makeup is all about accentuating your high points, while they make you look flawless and gorgeous every time you step out.
Finding your high points may not be a difficult thing, but what product to be applied where surely is. There is a great range of products but where to apply is the real question. Here is a descriptive guide on what to apply where!
A concealer is a light-shaded product that will add a pop to your look. The formulation is much thinner than what a foundation hold. The main purpose of a concealer is to hide the pigmentation, dark spots, and dark under-eye bags. This product can be used to hide active acne as well but should be used carefully at times like those.
A concealer is locally applied to your under eyes, under your cheekbones, and near your chin area. The chin area is usually dark and also leaves laughing lines behind.
To give yourself a flush of pink, you will always go for a blusher. A blusher is available in many colours today. You can find colours like orange, peach, purple, pink, and red, that are readily available in many brand ranges.
A blusher is generally applied to the apple of your cheeks. You can take the product towards the end of your eyes and also cover a bit of your nose to give a natural flush.
A blusher can take over your look, so be careful to not use too much product. To get rid of excess blush, you can use a compact or loose setting powder and dab it onto the desired area.
Highlighter is a shimmery product that adds a glow to your look. While a highlighter is generally a shimmery product, you need to be careful with the amount of product you put on your face. If more than the required highlighter is applied, it will give you a backlash if you wish to take photos and also will leave an oily impression.
Highlighter is commonly applied to your cupid’s bow, the tip of your nose, chin, inner corner of your eye, collar bone, and the brow bone. You can add a touch of the product to your forehead also!
Contouring is that makeup process where we add a little definition to pour face using a dark shade of cream or powder product. You can use a makeup brush or a beauty blender to apply the same.
While contouring your face, it is essential to know where all your facial features need more definition. Areas like the end of your forehead, your nose, the area below your cheekbones, and your jawline are mostly where a contour sits.
While you contour the forehead area, it is important for you to push the product more towards the scalp than bring it more to your face. Pushing the contour towards your scalp will bring an even tone to your skin.
The contour on your nose will help your nose look slimmer, while the contour on your jawline will add a sharper look to your appearance.
