The field of facial makeup is a universe in itself. It basically takes the face and its features as a canvass. On this blank screen of sorts the makeup artist applies all sorts of colors and products in a fine-tuned manner. The level of expertise required for the task at hand is almost as complex as is needed by an artist of the caliber of Pablo Picasso.
There is indeed a certain amount of instinctual feel for the situation that is involved. Yet the rest of the small details that make for a drop dead gorgeous look come from practice, practice and more practice!
Each stroke of the brush which spreads powder or bronzer has to be delicately executed. There has to be lots of balance which in itself is a beautiful thing. To mix and match the various shades of pink, brown and beige on the facial physiognomy takes effort and a keen eye for the intricate.
Start out with a clean moisturized face that has no gunk on it. This is your clean slate that you will work on and you will transform it from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Next apply foundation in strokes that lead away from the center towards the periphery.
As for the face powder , you will have to use light touches and soft sweeps of the brush with a hand that is painstakingly held in a poised position. The sides ought to be accentuated to highlight the cheekbones in their supermodel glory.
As for the concealing agent , it too should be used sparingly. A tissue paper can remove the excess amounts of shades that have caked the facial demeanor.
Now you come to the attractive eyes and kissable lips. The smoky and sultry gaze is definitely in. And the sexy pout aka Angelina Jolie’s bee-stung lips is a much-coveted ideal. The two can be yours in return for a little extended effort on the cosmetologist’s part.
Exotic colors such as silver, gold and cerulean blue will make the eyes stand out in peacock tail feather fashion. And mascara and kohl will make them acquire a killer beauty too.
Finally, for the strawberry lips you will need burgundy or berry lipstick not to mention a plumping agent from your local store. End the routine with a thorough examination in the mirror for any flaws that need to be redone. Ready! Steady! Strike a pose!
