For whether you're getting made up for an event out, or seeking to look grand on the go, I present to you, your beauty implements..
#10 Powder; For those of you who find putting foundation on too oily or heavy for your skin, powder is the ideal substitute. Powder is a beauty must-have for all seasons as, unlike foundation, powder is less oily and gives you more of a 'matte', finished overall look. Tip: You will want to use a powder puff applicator or a wide bristle makeup brush when applying powder to your face for even application.
#9 Brow brush & pencil; Having well groomed eyebrows pulls together your makeup and your face all together. A brow brush and pencil applicator allows your eyebrows to neatly stand out. Tip: Apply by brushing from the inner to outer corner of the brow with short, light strokes. Then, with the pencil, Lightly fill in any eyebrow spaces by working from the inner to outer corner.
#8 Colored eyeliner; Out with simple, black eyeliner and in with the colors! Colored eyeliner is such a must-try trend for all seasons because it draws a very flattering focus to your eyes and gives them that 'wide-awake', bright-eyed look.
Tip: Colors for..brown eyes: shades of green (like turquoise), blue, gold, and copper. blue eyes: orangey, rose, bronze plum and lavender shades. green eyes: blue, purple and burgundy. hazel eyes: Golds, purples, apricot, dark greens and coppery bronzes.
#7 Bronzer; The list is endless when it comes to bronzer! I am here to dispel two common myths about bronzer; 1. Is bronzer only necessary for fairer skin tones? Not at all. In addition to warming up lighter complexions, bronzer can also even out skin tone and add a luminous, sun-kissed glow for any warmer complexion(Be it olive,tan,caramel or coca). Add a deep, shimmery (not glittery) copper hue for darker skin tones and concentrate on the areas where the sun naturally hits your face (cheekbones, bridge of nose, and forehead). 2. Does bronzer just go on your cheeks and forehead? No! bronzer looks great swept across your collar bones, making them more defined and visible. Also, bronzer has a great affect during the summer time when swept along your legs and inner thighs for a seemingly, slimming affect.
#1 Water; The most essential essential of them all. Water keeps you hydrated during the day and keeps your skin naturally glowing for longer. You'll want to keep a bag-sized water bottle in your bag with you at all times throughout the day. Water is the best beauty enhancer of them all. Besides, nobody wants to dry up like a prune.
Eco-Friendly Tip: Re-use your water bottle throughout the day by filling it up by water fountains or near any drinkable water source to avoid wasting plastic.
Now, take your tools and all that you've learned, and go out there and rock it out!
