Special Care for Oily Skin
Some care can help prevent oiliness and excessive shine .
Keeping skin clean is key. For this, the secret is to use soaps suitable for oily skins. Then apply a toner to remove pollution and makeup waste.
Care at the time of hydration: choose oil-free products that do not cause clogging of the pores. Take care of the temperature of the water, which can not be hot or cold.
How to Apply Makeup
1. Facial Base
Give preference to liquid or creamy bases, because they dry less the skin. To spread the base better, use a sponge moistened with water. Apply a lighter base than your skin on the forehead, sides of the nose, mouth and chin, to smooth out the features and “lighten” the face.
To disguise dark circles , use a concealer that is lighter than the base tone. Slightly green toning corrects also better the pimples .
3. Facial Powder (Compact or Translucent)
The function of facial powder is to smooth the skin – especially after using a concealer – and help in fixing the makeup. But if your skin is good, you will not even need to use it. Be careful not to overdo the amount so your face does not look like a “mask”.
The application is very simple. Use that thicker brush or, in the case of the compact powder, the sponge.
Dark shadows diminish the eyes; Light shadows increase eyes.
The shade should be applied with the strongest tone in the outer corners, close to the eyelashes, and the lightest tone at the top, close to the root of the eyebrows. Be careful not to overdo the quantity and try to use it only on special occasions.
The eye pencil should be passed carefully in the time of passing especially those who have the habit of passing it right down lower lashes to leave the eyes well marked, as the skin perspires you can get blurry eyes quickly.
For best effect, apply the shadow before the eyeliner. This should be applied with a thin and uniform layer next to the root of the upper lashes, from inside to outside the eyes.
If you want a fine stroke, use only the tip of the brush or pencil. There are already applicators whose brush is rigid and with a very thin tip. They are the best for those who do not have much skill or firmness in the hand. If you want a thicker stroke, tilt the tip of the brush slightly.
To apply the eyeliner more easily, use a mirror on the desk. Apply first half of the eyelid to the outer corners. Then, make a thinner trace from the center of the eyelid to the inner corner.
To lengthen the lashes, apply the mascara in at least two layers. Use it only on the upper lashes, to leave the natural look. To avoid masking the mascara, dry the lashes with a dryer. Keep your eyes closed so as not to irritate them.
If the mascara is dry, apply a few drops of saline, so it can be used more apply a few drops of saline, so it can be used a few more times.
Apply with a brush a small layer of Blush on the cheekbones, with slight brush strokes. Blush should be used in moderate amounts to avoid giving an artificial appearance. Excesses should be removed with a sponge containing compact powder.
If you want to “widen” your face, apply blush at the height of the ears, pulling the brush toward the cheekbones. If you want to make it thinner, apply it to the temples (between the eyebrow and the apple of the face) and pull to the cheekbones.
To attach the lipstick, apply and remove the excess with absorbent paper, wipe one layer of compact powder and apply another layer of lipstick.
To enlarge your lips , draw the natural outline of them with a pencil a little darker than the lipstick, outside the lips, fade the stroke with a brush and apply the lipstick. Use a lighter shimmering tone in the central part of the lower lips. Use and abuse gloss and gloss .
To lower your lips , draw the outline along the inside of your lips, with a pencil lighter than the lipstick you will use. Avoid gloss and gloss; Wear dark, opaque lipsticks.
10. Make-up cleaning
Do not forget to take off the makeup well before bed so the skin can breathe.
The ideal is to use makeup removers , as these are suitable for removing all excess makeup. Then use neutral soap (suitable for washing the face) to remove what the makeup remover did not remove. The facial tonic is used to remove that little dirt hidden in the pores, good to finish the cleaning. Avoid alcohol-based products as they dry the skin.
And lastly, do not forget to caprichar in hydration or (depending on your age) a good anti-wrinkle cream.
