One day my sister sent me photos of a model from her master class: before makeup and after. An employee who is fond of photoshop, asked in surprise: Wow! What program did she work in? In a professional makeup program, I replied with a laugh.
Photos of models on the covers of the magazine can not do without the help of specialized design programs, but you should not underestimate the importance of high-quality makeup.
As a child I could not understand why the cosmetics catalog offers so many items. Well, shadows, mascara, lipstick – this is understandable. And all these creams, scrubs, powders, foundation creams – why?
Of course, in 10 years the skin looks like that any model will envy. But two years later, when there was a teenage rash on the face, the answers to children’s questions came by themselves.
If your skin looks perfect and has no flaws, you can do without a base under makeup. But among my friends there is not one such example.
Prepare the skin for applying makeup
I often think about how unfair the need to do makeup every day (of course, you can do without cosmetics, but this is not sad, not that scary). You should take a nap for half an hour, and here you stand in front of a mirror and wield a brush.
And imagine how hard the skin is to wear cosmetics. From morning to evening, powder, eye shadow, blush. Poor thing. We must help her.
So, in the winter, I rub the extra moisturizer before going to bed. Then the morning the skin is smooth and delicate. I note that this method is not suitable for oily skin. In the morning I wash my face with a special foam – the soap is too dry. Then apply a moisturizing day cream, and only then proceed to the creation of makeup.
Base under makeup is not only the first, but also the main
Paying attention to the natural beauty of the skin, you can apply basic cosmetics. For this there are several types of funds. Each woman individually decides by trial and error on what to choose.
I tried the makeup foundation TM Mary Kay. She lays well and looks very natural on the face, but her skin did not take it. There was a slight rash, and I had to look for alternative ways to create a base for makeup.
In the summer, I am rescued by loose mineral powder of the same brand, which lays down in a dense layer and lasts a long time. In winter, I use TM Mary Kay creamy powder. By its texture, it is very similar to the makeup base, hides all the flaws, and the skin is much more like it.
The rules of applying the base
Once again, it should be emphasized that it is necessary to apply the base under the makeup only on the skin moisturized with a day cream to avoid its drying. Very carefully shade. The more subtle the base, the more natural the makeup looks.
Foundation or powder can emphasize even the smallest wrinkles, so for their visual elimination it is better to use special means of directional action.
On the meaning of the base under the makeup, I think, to speak unnecessarily. It is enough to try at least once to apply a good foundation or foundation, and the difference in appearance will immediately tell all the arguments behind.
And how do you create a base for makeup?
