Keep Your Make-Up Look Up to Date
The quickest way for anyone to look older is to wear make-up the same way they did in high school forever. I think we are all guilty of this to some extent, don’t you?
It’s just so dang easy to get lax about the way we look and only dress up for certain occasions like church or date night. I know that if I let things get out of hand, I can look pretty raggedy and washed out before too long. If I don’t bother to put on makeup, then pretty soon I am wearing pajamas all day. It happens.
Still, it can get pretty uncomfortable to think about changing your makeup look. After all, you’ve been wearing it that way for years, you are comfortable with the way it looks, and you can put it on with your eyes closed — in a car driving down a dirt road. How do you learn new techniques, get new ideas, and update your look?
It’s pretty easy.
You can look through Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmo, Vogue , and other fashion magazines online. You can look up articles about the latest trends. Then you can practice like crazy.
Make-up for summer 2013 was simple. You choose your best facial feature and make that the star of the show while leaving everything else pretty neutral. For example, if you have great lips, outline them with red pencil, then use a matte, red lipstick to color them. Use light, neutral colors on eyes and cheeks to make the lipstick get all of the attention.
If you are bringing attention to your eyes then you would make them dramatic and keep everything else neutral. You can see exactly what I mean in this Harper’s Bazaar slideshow.
Are you good about keeping up with the trends or happy with the way you have done it forever?
