Tips for the perfect day make-up
A professional day make-up starts with a foundation. First, the shadows under the eyes are covered with a concealer (concealer). Then a make-up, which should fit your skin type, distributed on the entire face. Depending on the consistency of the makeup you use a brush or a sponge. Be sure to spread the make-up thinly and evenly. It should make your skin appear more even, but not “affect”. If you find make-up too strong, you can also use a tinted day cream.
Especially for skin with acne there are special make-up sticks, which combine the properties of foundation, concealer and concealer. They can be used for spot and large area coverage of skin irregularities and are highly covering.
To lighten the skin and keep the make-up long, apply a transparent powder over the foundation. Lightly tap the brush after dipping it in the powder pot. Distribute the powder throughout the face with even circular motions – this guarantees an even application.
Using a brush, pick up some rouge and pat it over the back of the hand. Begin by applying to the highest point of the cheekbones and spread the rouge with slight pressure diagonally outwards towards temples and ears.
Draw the eyebrows with a colour-matched eyebrow pencil or help yourself with a little eyeshadow. Less is more here! Then brush your eyebrows into shape. If these are “stubborn”, some hairspray on the brush or a transparent eyelash gel will help.
Using an eyeliner or kohl pencil, make a thin line along the eyelash line. This gives your eyes even more expression.
For a seductive eye-lift, you should shower the eyelashes vigorously several times. For a natural look, it is best to use brown ink.
If the eyes are strongly emphasized, it is enough if you give a touch of tinted gloss to your lips. If the eyes are discreetly made-up, you can use stronger lipstick colours.
Tip: A well-cared-for skin is the most important basis for a skilful day make-up. If the skin is flaky and dry, the make-up cannot be evenly distributed, but quickly becomes blotchy. In this case, an exfoliation followed by a moisturizing mask would be an advantage.
