However, for strobing, all you need to do is ‘highlight’ to naturally brighten up the face

Simply highlight the parts of your face where the natural light hits directly, like the forehead, bridge of the nose, cheekbones, cupid’s bow and the chin.

For a flawless base, apply foundation or your favorite BB Cream. Then slap on some sheer highlighter on your most attractive features. No contouring required.

You can easily minimize this problem by applying your blush closer to your nose. This type of makeup tips is generally used in weddings.

Conceal Blemishes

Concealers are the best available options which help in concealing blemishes. Cake or cream type concealers help in removing your acne pits.

Tips to Prepare Your Skin for a party

Looking gorgeous for parties and events is the dream of every girl, though sometimes we can’t manage to get the desired appreciation. It happens because we take some wrong facial treatments wishing that everything will suit our skin. Skin whitening facials will not always make your skin brighter and tightening mask will not necessarily make your skin feel like smooth and silky.Why? Possibly because you are not selecting the appropriate thing for your skin, or maybe it’s not the right time for its application. According to skin experts’ suggestions, we have prepared a schedule for taking care of your skin if you are expecting any party or event ahead.

Keep your Skin Hydrated:

It’s the very first and essential step you have to take before a few weeks. Your skin quality cannot be maintained in one or two hours or days. You have to work on it for weeks. Water keeps your skin moisturization level at appropriate points.

Daily cleansing:

Daily cleansing is so important before you go to bed. Cleansing with any good cleanser will remove makeup traces, dust, impurities and oil so your skin pores will remain unclogged. It will also brighten your complexion.

Moisturization:

Moisturizing-for-Your-Different-Skin-Types

After washing your face with lukewarm water and some good face wash, moisturize it with the cream you love to use (Especially if its winter season) Moisturization keeps the skin soft and glowing and if you want to get a flawless response at the upcoming event, you must get a glowing skin before the day comes.

Exfoliating:

Exfoliating or scrubbing is also very important. It loosens the dead skin cells to reveal a fresh and young skin. Always be careful while choosing a scrub from the market. Check if it suits your skin and it is actually made for the skin like your’s. If you believe in home remedies, brown sugar in any face pack can do the trick.

Don’t use harsh facial masks at party day:

Some girls use mud mask or other masks alike exactly on the day when the party is going to be held. Keep one thing in mind that if you are going to get a haircut or facial treatment for the party, do it before 2-3 days because these things need time to get settled. Avoid any mask which pulls out the moisture from your skin. It will give a dry and chapped winter look to your face. Keep your skin properly moisturized and soft at the day.

No matter if you are going to wear a party makeup or the subtle one to go for a coffee with your friends, long lashes will make you look significantly beautiful.

Applying fake eyelashes is quite easy as you will get the procedure at the back of lashes pack. If you feel that your eyelashes are already long and healthy enough, you can make them look even prettier by using mascara and eyelash-curler.

Try Different Eyeliner

Black eyeliner gives a broad look to your eyes. It can be applied in both ways. You may give yourself an eastern and shy look, or a bold and beautiful western look. Just being a little familiar with the tricks to play with black pencil, eyeliner and mascara will do the trick.

This weekend, try different colored eyeliner. It can be brown, navy blue, or green. You may also pick the one with glitters.  You can make yourself look quite different by trying various eyeliners. Glitters and shimmery eye-shades are so much appreciated these days. So go ahead and experiment with different colors of eyeliners. Keep one thing in your mind, try to keep your lipstick and blush-on to the natural tone if you are trying some new shade of eyeliner. If you will pick a bold colored lipstick, you will surely look overdone.

Go a Bit Out of Your Lip Edge

Mostly, girls want a delicate and thin look for their lips. It looks good but when we talk about experimenting, we should do what we have never done before. Take a darker color lip-liner and apply it a bit outside of your natural lip line. After giving your lips a perfect shape, use lip brush to fill lipstick (one tone lighter) in it. Either you are using natural colors or the bold ones, this idea will change the entire look of your makeover. Give it a try!
