Makeup for Hooded Eyes

Bigger Eyelids

With hooded eyes, a bigger eyelid is what you need to have for better makeup. You need to create fake eyelids, that’s for sure, so that the eyelid looks much bigger than it really is. How do you do that? You need to draw a line above your natural eyelid with a dark pencil, and then smudge it well. Then add dark eye shadow above the line and blend it outwards. Your eyes will look bigger with the fake lines above.

The Smoky Eye

Smoky makeup works well with your hooded eyes, as it helps open up the eyes. With hooded eyes, you need to apply smoky metallic makeup the normal way, and the trick here is to add a lot of sparkle. Use shimmery eye shadow, and lots of it, on your entire lid.

Smudge-Proof Eye Makeup

Start with the Eyebrows

Darker eyebrows will stand out more prominently than fair-haired women with pale eyebrows. Prepare eyebrows by brushing them into place, removing any stray hairs with tweezers and trimming them into shape using cosmetic scissors if necessary and tidy them up even further. Use clear eyebrow gel or clear mascara instead of applying eyebrow pencil to eyebrows that can easily smudge.

Keep Eyeshadow in Place

Many brands of eyeshadow have a habit of coming off before the end of the day, and some will also disappear into the crease of your eyelids. If you are in the habit of regularly touching your eyes, eyeshadow will slip off. Switch eyeshadow brands if this happens to you and buy an eyeshadow primer. Apply the primer to help keep the eyeshadow in place longer without having to touch it up and try to remember not to touch your eyes.

Makeup for an Interview

  • Makeup Foundation: Wear a foundation that has light to medium coverage. Do not wear full coverage foundation, even if you have a lot of blemishes and discoloration. Full coverage makeup foundation can look extremely cakey and thick, especially when worn in broad daylight.
  • Stay Neutral: Although wearing colorful eye shadow can be fun and youthful, an interview is not the appropriate place to wear colorful makeup. Apply an eye primer, followed by a dusting of eye shadow that matches your skin tone. This will cover little veins, redness and uneven skin tone on your eyelids. Next, find an eye shadow that is half a shade darker than your skin tone. Using a crease brush, apply this shade in your natural crease and lightly blend upward. Stop here! Do not use more than two eye shadow colors.
  • Eyeliner: Skip the black eyeliner just this once. Instead, opt for a creamy brown

Airbrush Wedding Makeup

Foundation

Whether you have clear skin or need to hide imperfections, airbrushing can provide a clean, clear base of foundation to carry the whole look to perfection. Because airbrushing goes on in a super-fine mist it can be applied to ears, neck, decolletage and even shoulders and back without looking streaky or patchy. The foundation formula is also quick drying and will resist rubbing off on clothing or other people (remember the bride will have to hug and kiss a lot of well-wishers on the big day, so this is really important).

Contouring

Airbrush wedding makeup also provides a unique contouring opportunity. Most bridal looks will have a heavier contouring on them than normal because the bride needs to photograph well and airbrushing can provide a seamless finish to contours and highlights as well. One of the best tricks which every bride will love is to contour the decolletage – …

Makeup For Fussy Skin

Try hypoallergenic. Many cosmetics companies make hypoallergenic makeup, which contains fewer skin irritating preservatives and fragrances. But even hypoallergenic products aren’t completely safe. They’re just less likely to rile sensitive skin.

Use an oil based foundation. Oil based foundations are less likely to provoke sensitive skin than water based products because they contain fewer and different preservatives.

Oil rich foundations are fine for both dry and oily skin. And if you’re prone to breakouts, choose a water based over an oil free foundation. Your skin’s natural oils will make an oil free foundation darken on your skin after a few hours.

Put you makeup to the test. You can determine whether a new foundation or blusher will rile your skin before you use it. Dab a small amount of the product on your inner forearm twice a day for a week to see if your skin reacts.

However, this test …
