Handy Makeup Application Tips for Anyone

Make up applied properly will spruce up your eyes regardless of their color or shape,  tone down dark circles and under eye bags, highlight the best parts of your face and blur its imperfections. There are several general rules that proved their effectiveness over time when it comes to getting the most out of your makeup.

Take care of your skin The makeup application starts with the face, goes to the eyes, and ends with the lips. The skin face needs to be prepared: remove the old makeup and dirt with a makeup remover, wash the face using a soft facial cleanser to get rid of grease and sweat, and apply a moisturizer to hydrate the skin. The oil-free moisturizers work better because they prevent the skin from producing excess oil and maintain the makeup features longer.

The face

Once you've  finished the skin moisturizing procedure, it is recommended to apply a primer (to better keep in place the makeup) and wait a few minutes until it is absorbed. Blemishes, dark spots, red patchy areas, under-eye circles and pimples are best covered with a concealer applied in dots and smoothed out with the fingertips. No matter if the foundation is liquid, powder, or cream, its role is to display the natural tone of your skin. For this reason, the foundation color has to be similar to your natural skin color. Start with large dots placed on the center and then go toward the neck and earlobes using a latex sponge applicator or a foundation brush. Optionally, you may apply a thin layer of transparent powder with a fluffy brush to set the foundation and reduce the impact of perspiration.

There are certain areas of the face such as the cupid bow, below eyebrows, inside the eye corner, and the top of the cheekbones that need to be brightened with a highlighter to build the impression of depth and shadows. A darker shade of powder applied to the hollows of the cheeks and the sides of the nose creates a longer and slimmer appearance. Then look in the mirror and add a little blush on the round parts of the cheeks that form when you smile (the apples of the cheeks), just to enhance their natural color.


The eyes

Optionally, you can start by applying an eye shadow primer on your eyelids in order to maintain the eye shadow for longer. You need three hues of eye shadow: dark, medium, and light. The darker shade is applied on the eyelid along the lash line, the medium one is for the crease, and the light shade covers the underneath eyebrow area. Keep in mind to let the eye shadow mix with the skin tone. Use eyeliner to draw a continuous line that follows the lash line and apply two coats of mascara that add volume and length to get fuller lashes and add false eyelashes for a dramatic look. The lips Do not skip the application of a thin layer of lip balm to prevent your lips from peeling into flakes. A lip liner that best suits your lip color is great to define the natural line of the lips; start applying the lipstick or gloss from the center of the lip and continue toward the lip corners. Do not forget to remove the lipstick spots from your teeth.

Feather Lite Petite Cap

The Feather Lite Petite Cap is my all time favourite of all my purchases of wigs from Hair and Beauty Canada . In fact, down the road, I may just order another one as I have never had such a comfortable, totally fitted to my head size and having the right amount of hair wig ever! My wig purchases have all been because I have lost much of my hair due to the chemo treatment I am taking for cancer. Everyone cannot believe that it is a wig. I even fooled the Cancer Pharmacist, the Cancer Doctor and the haematologist from Calgary who all thought that my hair had grown back in! At any rate, I love this little wig and I worry that I am wearing it far too much and that I will wear it out. Thank you Hair and Beauty for supplying me with something that is a pleasure to wear during a time that is difficult enough without feeling that your head is drawing the wrong kind of attention!

Thank you Linda for always sharing your feedback with our online community. It helps our shoppers find the best products in our store. We appreciate your business.

Review of Petite Simplicity Wig

This is a beautiful little wig. The styling is perfect – close to the head giving a realistic look just like your own hair with a new color and stylish look. It is a pleasure to wear – lightweight and fits very well. The wig definitely earns all of the five stars at which I have rated it.
