How to Enhance Your Best Features Using Make-up
‘Beauty starts from within’
You’ve probably heard this phrase sooo many times but people say it because it’s true!
The best way to feel truly beautiful is to do the inner work first. You want to blast the limiting beliefs that make you believe you’re not as beautiful as you truly are. Check out some ways to help build inner confidence here, here and here.
However, while you’re working on your inner self there is no reason you can’t take on a few tips to enhance your outer beauty. The truth is we all want to look and feel great on the outside right? So here are some quick and easy make-up tips I’ve picked up over the years:
Use illuminizer to make your features shine
Sometimes this is all you need to brighten up your face. Any illuminizer with a bit of shimmer or gloss will work it can be in the form of cream, powder or liquid, I love RMS beauty’s living luminizer. A lip balm, facial oil like rose hip or a bit of Vaseline also works well if used in small amounts.
I generally get a bit on my index finger and rub it on my brow bone, cupids bow, inner eyes, down the bridge of my nose and in a C shape from my temple to the top of the apple of my cheek, on both sides of my face.
Don’t be afraid to give this one a go boys! No one will ever know you’re wearing makeup.
Give your eyes a lift
A few coats of mascara on your lashes will really open them up.
Start with the mascara wand at the root or your lashes, then wiggle it from side to side as you slowly move the wand up.
This will help to separate and lengthen your lashes so you don’t get that clumpy look.
TIP: If you don’t like black mascara clear mascara will also work a treat.
For extra lift use an eyelash curler to lift your lashes before applying the mascara.
Use eye shadow to enhance your eye colour
Here are some colours that make each eye colour pop:
Blue eyes: gold, bronze, peach, yellow tones
Brown: dark blue, bronze, greens, gold, purple
Green: purple, pinks, reds, copper
Hazel: brown, grey, burgundy
Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour and mix it up a bit.
Remember make-up should be fun and you can always wash it off!
