Learn To Put Make Up On The Right Way – Mistakes Happen

By Wendell John-Baptiste

We all try to Learn to put make up on the right way; it can be a lifetime project. Skin changes, technology changes, and formulas change. From the first time a little girl watches her mommy putting on powder and lipstick, each little girl then embarks on a journey to learn all about make up and its various methods of application.

Although the cosmetic industry would like us all to believe that makeup has changed dramatically over the past decades, it really hasn’t. Putting lipstick and foundation on in 1930 wasn’t terribly different than it is today. Foundation still comes in a bottle, and lipstick still comes in a tube.

Foundations are basically the same as well as eye shadows, rouge/blush and even mascara. Has application changed? Not really! Manufacturers have pretty much run out of ways to change or improve the products, so they invent new ways for us to apply everything!

Almost everyone has always put foundation on with their finger tips. For most people this works fine, but experts say the best way is to use a damp sponge. It will go on finer, cover pores, and cover more evenly. It does take a while to learn how much pressure to use when applying the foundation because if you press too hard, you simply remove what you just put on. Lipstick is only a problem if you have tiny lips. If you do, practice going outside the lines of your mouth. A lip pencil can help if you draw the line and then fill in with a creamy lipstick.

Lipstick application has remained the same as well. Tubes haven’t changed, and the formulas haven’t changed aside from various additions that include moisturizers and sun screen. A 1930 housewife applied lipstick the same way that a 2010 college student does today. It’s actually difficult to make a mistake putting on lipstick.

Always use a good quality product that will remove every trace of eye makeup without irritating your eyes. Baby oil should never be used, although some people claim olive oil can perform wonders.

Eye shadow can be mastered by anyone, but it takes practice. Each person needs to understand what looks good on her eyes. Not every eye is large enough for three shades, dark lines in the crease, or highlight under the brow. Play around with colors you have or have a make over at your local department store – and pay attention to is being used. Then go home and practice.

Eye liner is important if you want to accentuate your eyes, but again, it’s a trick not always easy to learn. Liquid eye liners are the preferred choice for make up artists, however, if you don’t have a steady hand, you’re better off with a pencil. One line on your lid, one thinner line at your bottom lashes.
