Makeup is meant to enhance features not bring negative attention to you. That's what
wearing too much makeup will do; it will bring you unwanted attention. Don't wear
too much of anything such as:
1. Eyeliner: dark, thick eyeliner will make you look overdone and will ruin the rest
of your makeup.
2. Mascara: too much mascara looks fake and will flake. It looks especially bad if
worn with thick eyeliner or dark blue eye eye shadow.
3. Foundation: Make sure your foundation is the same color as your skin. Foundation
is meant to protect and give the face a smooth look. The magic word is blend.
4. Powder: The same holds true for powder - not too much. Also, be sure to blend
your makeup so there are no obvious lines.
Apply lip liner to completely cover the lips, add color and your lipstick will stay
on much longer. Make sure your lip liner doesn't show. Also, your lip color should
match your skin tone; wear cool colors if you have cool coloring and warm colors
if you have warm coloring. If you want to make your lips look smaller, keep your
liner on the inside of your lips. However, if you decide to make your lips look larger,
going outside the natural outline of you lips is a mistake. This can look quite messy
3. Appropriate makeup
Wear makeup that is appropriate for the occasion. If you are going to the beach you
shouldn't wear the same or as much makeup as you would if you were going dancing.
Also, when you are in daylight your makeup should be a lighter than when you are
out for the evening.
4. Too little or no makeup
Some women don't wear makeup because they are not sure how to use it and are afraid
of being overdone. If you are unsure, start will light colours in your shade. Start
slowly and add one product at a time. Maybe start with foundation, add mascara, blush
or lipstick. If you are not used to wearing makeup, using a lot a first may be a
little too much for you, so start slowly. The bottom line is a little is better than
none. If you are still unsure seek professional advice.
