We women have it good! Having fun with our fashion, style and look allows us to create the beautiful women we are by bringing out our individual creativity.
Let’s have some fun….. starting with our cosmetics, let’s look at some different ways we can do fun makeup tricks. I’ve got some suggestions and it not only saves you money but it’s another way to explore possibilities with your current stock of makeup and some materials that are probably there in your refrigerator.
Why don’t you call the girlfriends over and enjoy a glass of wine, get together while you share fun makeup tricks. Let’s get started….
- For the eyes
Looking tired or have droopy lids? You might have spent a night partying and will need to go out again tonight. So this makeup trick will fight the droopy lids and make your eyes look perky.
When we buy eye shadow pallets of individual or several colors, you may have a combination of brown, violet and blue plus some very light or shimmery hues. Why don’t you play and try using that shimmery white or nude colored eye shadow? Apply it lightly just above the arch of your brow and blend to create an illusion. The result will be higher arched brows and lids. Now nobody will dare call you droopy.
If you have puffy eyes, you can use kohl or dark brown shade and try contouring the area from your outer eye and follow the arch towards the middle of your inner eye. Just trail over your eye socket and stop in the middle part. It’s like forming half of a letter U. With practice, you’ll get this perfect. Remember to blend, blend and blend.
- For the lips
You can be bold and experimental with lip color. This is a good time to try putting on a new lipstick.
Take note that some ingredients in lipsticks may cause allergies. If you are particularly fond of ravishing red colors, watch out for an ingredient called Carmine. There are also some basic lipstick ingredients which can cause allergies like lanolin and fragrance. Opt instead for hypoallergenic lipstick or lip colors but still check the labels. An allergic reaction to lipstick can make your lips puffy and swollen with blisters and that’s not how you would want to look on a date, right?
Try a variety of colors to match what you plan to wear. But here is another makeup trick to get a more unique lipstick. By mixing two of your favorite colors and blending them creates your own unique color. Here’s a fun and cost effective way to do it:
- Scrape the insides of ‘unexpired’ but nearly finished lipstick.
- Combine a couple of shades in a small microwavable container.
- Microwave for 10-20 seconds.
- While still warm, add some vitamin E; puncture the capsule and squeeze out the oil and mix it to the warmed lipstick. Aside from being an anti-oxidant, vitamin E may help relieve chapped lips and it can make your lips soft and supple.
Voila! Now that you have a new color, try another fun makeup trick to make you look like a Hollywood movie star. Dab a bit of silver or gold gloss in the middle of your lower lip. Remember not to blot or purse your lips otherwise you lose the chance of having those ‘Hollywood’ lips worthy of the red carpet attention!
So go ahead, try these fun makeup tricks and feel free to experiment, be bold, be daring and be uniquely beautiful. Be sure to share those makeup tricks you have tried or some of your own by leaving your comments below.
Have a Beautiful Looking Day!
