Applying makeup is an actual art. Makeup lets you express your individuality in your unique way. Being creative is wonderful! I love changing my style, my hair, my makeup and today I am going to share with you some makeup tips on how to achieve this “Lady in red” look.
Although applying makeup for a special occasion is much like applying every day makeup, you can go bolder on the colors and more dramatic! For special occasions, you want something more glamorous.
Preparing Your Skin
Before applying makeup, you need to prepare your face by washing it with a gentle cleanser. Clean your face and neck using a cleansing water and cotton pads. Then use concealer to cover up any dark spots, blemishes and any unwanted imperfections. Your concealer must be a shade lighter than your foundation. Apply foundation with your fingers as this will give you the greatest control. You can use a makeup brush or sponge if you want, then apply blush to the apples of your cheek with a large makeup brush.
Do you want to know how to choose the best red lipstick shade for your skin tone?
Use a soft toothbrush to gently buff your lips and remove dry, dead skin. To keep your skin hydrated apply matte lip balm on your lips. Apply a layer, then blot to remove any excess balm. Then apply concealer on to your lips to fade the color and build a perfect red. Line your lips with red pencil, be careful and follow the natural shape of your lips. Now you are ready to apply your beautiful red lipstick. I will give you some advice on how to find the best red lipstick shade for your skin tone. Certain colors work better on certain skin tones, so you have to choose the prefect color for your skin depending on your undertone skin color. Flip your wrist over and see the color of your veins. If they are blue -based, that means you have cool undertone colors and therefore cold colors are better for you. If they are green-based, you have warmer tones and you better choose hot colors. Some people have medium undertones and they look great with a darker blue-based red while others with darker skin tones, should opt for a more orangey-red.
Apply eyeshadow on your eyelids.
You need only two shades of eyeshadow – one light and one dark. Select neutral colors for both shadows, since they work for almost any skin tone. For the lighter eyeshadow you can use beige or champagne. For the darker shadow choose dark brown or dark grey. Apply the lighter shade all over your eyelid with an eyeshadow brush. Use an angled brush to apply the darker shade to the eye crease only. You can smudge your eye crease a little bit with your finger tip to blend. Line your eyes with black eyeliner – use liquid, gel or pencil eyeliner, then brush mascara on your lashes. Apply two or three coats of black mascara on your upper lashes and if you want, you can apply false eyelashes – they are best added after you have finished applying your eye makeup.
