Makeup is to enhance not change

 I truly believe that make up is meant to enhance our features not to change what we don’t like. So here are some tips on how to enhance different parts of your face based on what you want everyone to focus on. Enjoy! 


1. Eyes: 

If you love your eyes or feel like your eyes are what you want to enhance then find colors that make your eyes pop. For my blue eyes, browns and pinks make my eyes stand up. Here is a chart you can look out to find colors to help find the right color to make your eyes pop. 



2. Lips: 

For people who have really full and beautiful lips go with a bold lip color. Use makeup to your advantage by having it be what people first notice. Reds and dark pinks are great colors that will highlight your lips but not come across as over the top.  image-1


3. Eye lashes: 

Use a curler! This is key for helping your eyelashes really stand out. By curling your lashes will allow them to show off their length and volume. Use the graphic below to make the most of your eyelash curler. 




4. Bone structure: 

Contour. Contour. Contour. By creating shadows under your bone structure will pull in your face and slim. It will also show off your natural bone structure. You will have to take into consideration the shape of face.  



So by figuring out what you want to highlight or what you love about yourself will then set the foundation for your makeup routine. It will simplify your make up routine as well.I hope these tips give you an extra boost of confidence on how to do your makeup.

    Awesome post! Super informative! I’m a beginner with makeup (I’ve rocked just eyeliner and mascara for my whole life haha). Great job!

    This is full of great information. I don’t wear makeup, so I am not familiar with how to use it, apply it or even what to buy.

    I agree with the eyeshadow recommendations. Blue eyes here and pinks/browns really make the blue eyes pop! I’d add one thing to your list too: eyebrow liner. Seriously never used to do this but damn it makes such a difference!

    I love these tips. Makeup is so much fun and it is always good to see new ideas. I often stick with the same eyeshadow colors, but need to branch out. I like these broken down into eye color!

    I love this and you’re totally right it’s all about working with what you’ve got! I need to try some more of these eye colors!

    This is great! I love getting made up, but I am quite the minimalist when it comes to makeup. I like to have fun with it but still look like me.

    I use makeup sometimes to enhance, and sometimes to change. I have horrible dark circles, so I definitely use it to change that! I like using different shades of eye makeup to either enhance my eyes or sometimes to get a whole new look.

    Great post filled with so many tips. Even though I’m a beauty blogger, I have yet to test the contour waters. Now that I have your handy guide I think it is time for me give it a try.

    I totally agree that you should wear makeup to show off features and maybe cover up blemishes but not change everything. Great guide!

    Why did no one ever tell me that I’m supposed to invert the eyelash curler?!?! Game changer! I agree, makeup should enhance your features not cover your natural beauty!

    Great tips. My eyes look so much better when I use my eyelash curler. I never knew to flip it and pinch like you show…I’ll try it tomorrow. Thanks for the tip.

    Kedves Tamás!1. firmware-t upgradelni nemhogy nem érdemes, hanem egyenesen tilos! Mi értelme lenne, ha nincs benne semmi új funkció, a jailbreak neeeÃz­téshn kívül?2. Én nem emlékszem, hogy láttam letölthetÅ‘ upgrade-t. Mire gondolsz?

    Cindy,It was funny when I stopped by here tonight. I thought to myself….. is this the same Cindy? If so, what happened? Then I went to this ૲aboutࣩ to try and figure it out. And I did. You wonderfully explained it. Sounds like a nice community of believers.Bless you all as you go out for Him and His Kingdom!

    Makine ei ole venäläinen kirjailija! Kirjoittaa tosin Venäjästä, mutta ei se hänestä venäläistä tee. Kannattaa lukea noita venäläisiä nyiarkkjyilijoita, joita edellisessä kommentissani mainitsin. Åelevin Ja Viktor Jerefejev ovat todella kiinnostavia. Niistä saa hyvän kuvan Venäjän tämänhetkisestä henkisestä tilasta.

    14dThe ideas you bring up in your article are unique. I was previously bored with the same old content on this subject. It’s just so refreshing to see something different. Thank you for this inmaofrtion.

    Thanks to all of you for your kind words. It’s so exciting, and May 15th seems so far away!Denise, there are two other VA conferences taking place this spring – one in , and one in Niagara Falls (which I’ll be attending). What’s great about OIVAC is that it’s accessible even to VAs who can’t get away due to family commitments or for financial or other reasons.

    Tous ces frustrés qui n’ont pas compris une chose aussi élémentaire : les « sales riches » sont peut être que 3000 et quelques, sauf que sur tout ceux la, combien sont chefs d’entreprise ? Et un seul d’entre eux en un an paye surement plus d’impôts qu’une dizaine de grincheux en toute une vie.Mais continuez a les insulter, et a les pousser vers la sortie. Bravo les mecs.

    अश्विनीकधीही फोन कर.. नंबर आहेच तुझ्याकडे. आणि या पूर्वीची गोव्याचे खादाडीचे पोस्ट्स वाचले तरीही बरीच माहिती मिळेल. सगळे बेस्ट ठिकाणं एकत्र करून पोस्ट केले होते एकदा.
