What Makes Up a Good Makeup Look?

When it comes to makeup, the first thing you need to do is identify what kind of makeup you like best. Do you prefer dramatic looks that feature pinks and purples? Are you all about natural and light looks? There are so many different styles out there and it’s important to know what you like best to prevent a lot of unneeded trial and error. Once you know what you like, you’re able to find the right products to create a great look. Ask yourself, ‘Why do I want to wear makeup today?’ The most common reasons are to look better, feel better, or both. You may want to wear makeup to cover a blemish or to cover up your skin tone. You may want to wear makeup to feel confident or comfortable. Makeup is meant to enhance who you are on the inside and out.

Match Your Skin Tone

If you’re wearing makeup, it is a given that you want to do it right. And the best way to do it right is to first match your skin tone. There are a million skin tones in the world and to be honest, not all of them are flattering on all people. You should be able to find a makeup product that best suits your skin tone and compliments your face shape. You don’t want to wear makeup that makes your skin tone look washed out or orange. To avoid this, you need to match your skin tone with the makeup that you’re wearing. If you’re wearing a bronzer, then you need to make sure that the foundation you’re wearing is a shade that’s close to your skin tone. If you’re wearing a pink lipstick, then it’s a good idea to wear a nude concealer or a light yellow under eye concealer.

Finding Your Base

A good makeup base is like the glue that holds everything else you’re going to put on top of it. You need to make sure that your base is translucent without being too transparent so that it doesn’t completely disappear on its own. A good base digs into the skin and provides a smooth canvas for your makeup to sit on top of. It’s like the bottom layer of paint that allows the colors above to show through. To find your ideal base, go around your face in small motions with your fingers. Try to figure out where you can feel the smoothest texture. That’s where you want to apply your foundation. Don’t forget to blend it out with your sponge or your finger.

Finding Your Eyebrow Anchor

Eyebrows are such an important part of any makeup look. They frame your face and make you look more awake and alive. Even if you don’t have naturally defined brows, you can still draw them in with a brow pencil. A good brow pencil has two basic features: It should be slightly dark in color. It should have a spoolie on the end so that you can brush the product through your brow hairs to make them look thicker and fuller. You can also clean your brow pencil off with a damp sponge to make it look newer. You can also try out different brow looks. You can use brow powder if you want a more natural look. Or, you can use a brow gel if you want a more dramatic look. Keep in mind that too-heavy brows can look unnatural so make sure they’re not too thick or too light. The right brow look can transform your whole look.

Adding Some Dimension

The next step in creating a good makeup look is to add some dimension to your face. What does this mean? It means that you want to add something to your face that makes it look a little bit bigger. What you want to do is add eyeshadow, a bold lip color or a strong contour shade. When you want to add dimension to your face, it’s important that you pick the right product. Eyeshadow is the obvious choice when it comes to adding dimension to your face. There are tons of eyeshadow palettes out there. When picking out eyeshadow shades, make sure that you pick a color that’s close to your skin tone. This way, it will look like the makeup you’re wearing instead of looking washed out. If you pick a too-dark shade, it will seem like you have no skin color on your face and will make you look pale.

Thinking Colorfully

Now that you’ve added some dimension to your face using eyeshadow and your face is slightly darker, it’s time to add a pop of color to your lips. A bold lip color can completely transform your entire look. You can pick a bright lip color or a lip liner to help your lipstick stay in place. Your lips should be the last thing that you add to your face. Once you’ve finished applying your blush, contour, eyeshadow and foundation, you should end up with a finished look.

Final Tips

There are so many different makeup products out there. Make sure that you know what each one does and how to use it properly. If you don’t know what shade of foundation matches your skin tone best, then you don’t know what you’re missing! Your makeup should look like you’re wearing makeup and not like you’re wearing a mask. It should be seamless and it should look like you’re naturally wearing it. If you’re makeup looks like it’s caked on, then it’s not going to work.
