The Internet is full of photos of people who horribly overdid their makeup or cosmetic surgery. It is very important that you have good taste when trying to improve the way you look. Today, more than ever, the fashion dictates that you should do your best to pull off the most natural look possible. This means well selected makeup that is perfectly applied to enhance your good sides, but discretely. Your hair needs that natural shine and a color that goes well with your skin tone. Here are some of the tips on how to look perfect by using your makeup and style to be the best version of yourself.
Have the Perfect Hair
In order to have hair that is well kept, but still looks like you did nothing to it you need to make sure that your color and the condition of your hair are flawless. First thing’s first, if you are opting for coloring your hair, make sure that you are using the colors that are of high quality and that the color choice is not unrealistic. Ruby red and Nordic blonde is not something that is seen that often in the nature, so make sure that the color is as close to your natural shade as possible. Do not choose those that are more than two shades away from your natural shade. The best thing you can do is to try and grow your natural hair without any coloring. Transition to your natural color is into easy but it is worth your while.
Hairstyles that Flatter Your Face
Your hair needs to be healthy and lovely as a pre-condition to have the perfect haircut. Having the perfect haircut contributes to your natural look because curls that are fortified with tons of product do not fool anybody. They look fake and horrible. For starters, you need to bring back the silky and shiny look of your hair. Try doing this by using natural hair products. Pick the shampoo and conditioner for your hair type and make sure that you use a hair mask at least once a week. Also, you can make your own hair mask from the products that you have in your home.
Makeup Starts with Proper Foundation
There is nothing more fake and artificial than a wrong foundation on a girl’s face. You need to know how to pick the right shade and you need to know how to apply it well. The first mistake a lot of girls make is to apply the foundation with their fingers. The warmth of the fingers influences the foundation, so it is not even. You need a brush made of nylon for the best effect. Dip it into the foundation and apply it on your face with downward strokes. That will cover your pores and put the tiny hair on your face in place. You need to work your way from the center of your face to the edges. You will have better effects, if your brush is thicker.
Less is More When Done Properly
Having a natural look means that you need to apply the makeup, but in moderate amounts and in a certain way, so that it does not look like you have a face of a doll. To do this properly, you need to start by cleaning your face and applying the gentle scrub. That will make the skin on your face even at all places which means that the products will look even when applied. If there are some imperfections, make sure that you are not using too much concealer. It does not really do a good work if there is too much of it. When you choose your cheek color, use the warmer tones. The cold ones look very fake and they do not contribute to the natural look. Use the brownish eyeshadow to emphasize the lines of your eyes. It needs to be just a bit darker than your natural skin tone. Apply it into the creases and under the lower lashes. Use a grey or black eye pencil to dot a line above the upper lashes. Use a lipstick that is the same color as your lips. Apply it with your finger, from the middle outward. Also, your mascara needs to fit you perfectly. Natural look does not put up with the lashes stuck together and the awful spidery effect.
Interventions that Look Just Like Mother Nature’s Work
There are some imperfections that people want to get rid of, but fixing them would mean applying way too much makeup on your face. This is especially true for those that try to conceal wrinkles by using a lot of foundation or concealer. A far better solution is to make the most of the dermal fillers. They are injected under your skin and they iron out the creases. It gives your skin a youthful, glowing look – most of all – a natural look.
Days of too much makeup and tons of products on your skin are long gone. Less is more when it comes to makeup, so it is time to find new ways to conceal the imperfections. Experts in cosmetic surgery have solutions that are more or less permanent and they are more or less invasive. They are worth looking into.
