We all have features about ourselves that we like and others that we wish to draw attention away from. In our social life, special occasions, or whenever we need to make a good impression, knowing our best features can really help. By highlighting them, we can instantly feel more confident and striking. We can choose outfits more easily and figure out how to pose in photographs. It’s important to recognize that no-one is perfect. Even people who look perfect to us often have things about themselves that they would personally change! But by knowing what we like and drawing some extra attention to it, we shift our focus from “flawed” to “fabulous”. Consider your best feature and discover these easy ways to highlight it with makeup and beauty products.
A beautiful smile makes us look youthful, friendly and approachable. It doesn’t have to be about having perfect even teeth. We can use whitening products to add extra sparkle. But it is really about the warmth and sincerity of the smile. If we want to enhance it with makeup we can play up our lips. A lip plumping gloss can add fullness and shine. A tinted balm can keep lips soft and hydrated while adding a hint of color. We can softly exfoliate our lips too with a scrub or soft toothbrush. This will bring the blood to the surface and rub off any dead skin cells.
The eyes are referred to as the windows of the soul, and it’s not difficult to see why. Our eyes say a lot about our depth, mood, and personality. The sheer amount of eye makeup products on the market tells us a lot about how prized the beauty of the eye is! If we want to make our lashes look longer, we can apply a serum to make them grow, curl them, or apply a great mascara. We can add false lashes for a special occasion and a sparkling shadow that will catch the light. Many photographers swear by the trick of highlighting the inner corner of a model’s eye with a light, shimmery color. It draws attention to the area and makes the eye look bright and awake.
Our skin doesn’t have to be completely blemish free to still look radiant and beautiful. What matters more is the tone, softness and radiance. We should have a good skincare regime that includes a cleansing, toning and moisturizing step. We can gently massage our face each day to eliminate toxins and improve circulation. If we want to make the most of our skin with makeup we should choose a base that is light in coverage. BB creams and tinted moisturizers help to even the skin tone without heavy coverage. A cream blusher can then bring color to the face while still looking fresh and natural. For a special occasion or evening look, highlighter is a popular choice. Add it to the high points of the face like the cheekbones to add a little lift.
