5 Tips for Flawless Skin


Get Excited! If You Luv Makeup and Beauty readers! Thanks for reading my blogs. Here are 5 Tips for Flawless Skin.

Tip 1: Primer your skin
Using a primer is like wearing a slip under your dress…it smoothes everything out and hides your imperfections.

Tip 2: Know your skin type before selecting a formula
Foundation comes in all forms, and should be selected based in skin type. Drier skin types should wear a moisture-base formula. Oily or acne-prone should wear an oil-controlling formula. A natural, mineral-rich foundation is great for any skin type.

Tip 3: Choose the right tools
Applying foundation is a personal preference and each method creates a different finish. For liquid foundations, using your finger creates a sheer look, while the Foundation Brushes produces a very smooth seamless finish. For powder makeup, use the Round Buff Brush for even, all-over coverage.

Tip 4: Apply concealer over foundation
Applying concealer over foundation allows for better coverage and prevents the concealer from getting swept away. Using a full-coverage formula will instantly conceal dark circles, lines and wrinkles, while reducing puffiness and redness.

Tip 5: Set your look with powder
Powder is a great way to complete your look. Keep it very light use a fluffy Powder Brush to dust a lightweight formula.

Get Fresh This Fall

Great Day! This season you should focus on your best features and play them up while keeping the rest of your makeup basic, subtle and gorgeous.

Here are some tips to looking your best in the upcoming months. Follow along and find your best feature.

LIPS
If your lips are your ticket, then find a shade that speaks to you. Plums are gorgeous, pinks are lively and reds are always a show stopper. If you decide to accentuate the lips, be very minimal with the eyes. A skin-tone shadow and mascara is just enough. Move towards satin lipsticks and away from shimmery glosses. Your lips should appear moisturized but bold.

EYES
Smokey eyes are always. If your eyes are your strength, work with earthy. Copper, bronze, brown, chocolate and forest green with hints of gold work great. Try matte shades as opposed to the summer shimmers. Shimmers should only be used in the inner corners of the eye to create an illusion of a rested, open eye.

Remember, less is more! Your beauty will be sure to shine through any way you go

Make Over Your Beauty Bag This Fall

Great day!  Glamour Divas should not leave home this fall without these items. Invest in a new cosmetic bag for the fall and included these items.

Non-latex sponge can be used to correct eye makeup mistakes, blend primer and buff down blush.



Beauty Blotter Oil-Absorbing Tissues, powder-free blotting papers help control shine without adding filmy buildup.





A nice pair of false eyelashes takes you up one glamorous notch. Novices should seek out a half strip with shorter lashes of varying lengths, which are easier to apply.



A fabulous facial bronzer is an essential tool for warming up every completion.
Everyone needs two pairs of tweezers: a needle nose for meticulous shaping and hard-to-snag strays, and slanted ones for gripping several hairs at a time.


Don't get caught without a great powder compact; it's a necessity for applying makeup on the go.

Transitioning Your Beauty From Summer to Fall

Great Day! Thanks for stopping by. One day the sun is shining, your hair is glossy and your complexion is dewy. The next time you check the leaves are changing and so is your reflection. You wonder: Where did this dry, dull skin come from? Why does my hair look so crunchy? Relax – transitioning your beauty regimen from summer to fall is easy, the only thing you’ll miss about the warm weather will be those bejeweled sandals.

Your skin looks dull and sallow, even with makeup. TREATMENT it’s not your imagination. In the fall, there’s less light which can make even healthy, supple skin appear pastry. To restore your natural glow, switch your summer foundation to a thicker, creamier one with light-reflecting pigments. “You need a cover that will the skin remain hydrated and appear more luminous. Smooth a highlighter across the cheekbones, along the temples and over the eyelids.
