Healthy, glowing skin is the secret to perfect makeup. If you have that beautiful, illuminating skin then any type of makeup will look awesome on you. Women around the world send a great fortune on cosmetics and skin care products. But they still struggle to get that perfect look. In this article we are going to discuss a few tips and tricks that will help you attain that gorgeous skin tone that you have always wanted.
Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing: The most important steps for a clear spotless skin is to cleanse, tone and moisturize. It is important to wash your face with lukewarm water, as water that is too hot can break capillaries, cause redness, and damage cells, but cold water in my observations, will not allow your pores to completely open. When cleansing by starting at the bottom of the face and working your way upward, I always tell me clients they are giving themselves an anti-gravity lift. This will also stimulate skin, getting blood flowing and allowing pores to open, ensuring that your skin gets truly clean. To rinse cleanser, gently splash with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean towel. Be careful not to damage skin by drying aggressively.
Toner is a must in a good skin care routine. It’s main functions are to close pores, remove the last traces of dirt and oil, re-balance skin’s pH after cleansing and to deposits active ingredient deeper into your skins layers after the dirt and oil is removed from cleansing. Toning will also get rid of any remaining traces of cleanser and/or mask.
Proper hydration is a crucial part of skin health and anti-aging care. Even if your skin is oily, it may still need hydration (fluid) between the cells. Proper hydration is two-fold; skin needs both fluid and oil content, so it is very important to make sure that your skin is properly and fully hydrated which is done by applying a good moisturizer that suits your skin type.
Follow a Healthy Life Style: Eat a well balanced diet. De-stress your life, eat nutritious and vitamin-packed foods, and choose the cosmetics according to your type of skin.Cosmetologists also recommend peeling your skin and applying nourishing masks regularly. But the number one rule is cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your skin in the morning and evening. It’s not enough just to rinse your face — you should really apply a tonic lotion and moisturizing cream.
Conceal The Blemishes: Get yourself a good concealer that actually hides all the blemishes, spots and dark patches on your skin. The product should also match your skin texture so that it doesn’t irritate you. Use concealer to cancel out blue eye circles. A frequent mistake is to apply concealer with several thick strokes directly under your eye, but this will highlight all the flaws. Draw a kind of triangle and blend it out carefully with your fingers.
Carefully Select and Apply Foundation: Selecting a foundation is very critical, because the result of your efforts will depend on the quality of foundation base. To find the most suitable tone, apply several different tones to your neck — it will help you choose the right color. Remember that our facial skin tone changes a little bit because of the weather, our mood, and other things.Apply your foundation from the center of your face with a special wide brush or your fingers. Pay attention to your forehead area, where your hair grows, and the sides of your nose.
Don’t Forget To Contour: A good Contouring determines the over all look of our face. Contour correction lets us conceal flaws and accent some parts of our face. Powder concealers and highlighters look much more natural and are easy to apply. While contouring keep in mind that the main rule is to highlight the areas you want to accentuate and darken the areas you would like to conceal.
A slight blush makes your face look fresh and healthy. For fair skin use pink tones of blusher, while bronze and coral tones will be suitable for darker skin. Nude and brown-pink tones suit almost everyone.To apply your blusher properly, use light blusher and a special brush. A good tip for you: smile and apply the blusher to the prominent areas of your cheeks. Done!
