If you’re interested in finding out a few tips read on.
The Right Foundation
We have spoken about this in quite a few blog posts recently, but it really is one of the most important steps to getting your makeup look right. Making sure you are using the right colour for you. (If you have been using the same colour for quite some time it might be worth switching it up a bit to ensure it is actually the best colour for you.) You will also need to have different colour foundation for Summer and Winter.
If choosing a mineral foundation colour just know that Mineral Makeup is very forgiving and covers a range of skin colours, which makes choosing the right colour that little bit easier.
Choose A Lighter More Natural Shade For Your Lips
Steer away from dark colour lip shades as they tend to be more ageing. Lighter colours like pinks and roses are much softer and produce a more natural look.
Eye Pencils Instead Of Liquid Eyeliner
Eye pencils create a softer look, smudging the eye pencil is also a nice technique to try. Don’t put eyeliner on the inside of your eyes particularly if you have small eyes as it will only make them looks smaller. Also grey instead of black eye pencil is always a good choice. MiSMo's Slate Eye Pencil would be ideal.
Your eyebrows frame your face and it is really important to finish off your makeup look with your eyebrows. MiSMo offers two options: Brow Define, a very easy to use butter or Eyebrow/Eyeliner pencil. Highlighting your eyebrows helps to give them shape, definition and of course colour.
Try Some Highlighter
Using a highlighter in a few specific areas can help to give a lovely glow. Highlighter can be applied to just above the cheekbones, under the eye and under the brow line. A touch can also be applied to cupids bow.
After everything is said and done a more natural makeup look is always a good choice each and every time, which is a great rule of thumb to follow at any age.
