Did you know that your skin reflects your entire lifestyle? If you live a healthy life, your skin will most likely be fresh and smooth. On the other hand, if you eat badly and don’t properly care for yourself, your skin will show that too. That’s why it is so crucial to take special care of it. This year has brought many innovative makeup trends, with a heavy emphasis on natural and no-makeup looks.
By learning the proper tips and tricks, you too can achieve flawlessly fresh skin. Let’s face it, warm spring and summer days are among us, be sure to look and feel your best with these 4 tips.
1. Prep Your Skin
Each morning before applying makeup, you need to make sure your skin is completely clean. My favorite way to do this is with a cleanser, a soft cloth, hot water, and a few mint leaves. The mint and hot water work wonders to remove the dirt from clogged pores. To create this, simply place the mint leaves in the hot water and while they soak, gently hover your face over the steam.
Now that your pores have been purified, it’s time to use your cleanser and cloth and gently scrub your entire face. After that, apply your favorite toner to prevent dirt and makeup from clogging the skin. Finally it’s time to apply your moisturizer. This aids in the prevention of fine lines and wrinkles. Remember, cleanser, toner, moisturizer.
2. Apply Foundation The Right Way
When it comes to applying makeup, many women think that applying a lot of foundation will conceal all on the skin’s imperfections. This is not true. In fact, this will emphasize your blemishes even more.
To hide blemishes, buy a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. For under eye circles or breakouts, apply concealer. After applying your foundation and concealer, it is time to set it with a light powder. For a subtle spring look, I love choosing powders with warm pink and peach tones.
3. Minimal Eyes
Because this season’s makeup trends are all about the no-makeup, minimal look, you need to emphasize your eyes by using the right tools. All you need to make the minimal eye look a success is a coat of mascara, a white eye liner, and nude eye shadow. This look is an amazing solution for grabbing coffee with your girlfriends to a cocktail party.
4. Bold Lips
This season is all about the bold lip. Done well, bold lips add sophistication and play up our natural lip shape. However, similar to your face prep, make sure you take the time to prepare your lips by exfoliating the dead skin cells with a toothbrush and apply lip balm immediately after.
Once your lips are exfoliated, define them to make them appear fuller by using a highlighter pencil on the cupid bow and in the center of your bottom lip. Keep in mind that the best lipstick colors should have a creamy consistency for extra plump. This season, radiant pinks, reds, dark browns, and nudes are in.
