Wearing makeup can add a bit more style to your overall look. Trying on different make up styles is a lot of fun. However, we should keep in mind that there are certain make up styles that are more fitting for particular occasions. Additionally, we should never forget that the makeup is there to enhance the beauty that’s already there, not to build a mask and recreate an entirely new look for you.
There are various looks you can create with your makeup collection, and here are a few basic make up styles you can use for different occasions:
The natural, everyday look – The natural makeup style is usually worn during daytime, whether you’re at home, at the office, or even while running errands. This style just aims to give you a fresh look without the use of too much colour. To achieve this look, use a foundation that’s closest to your natural complexion, and apply evenly on your face as well as your neck. Don’t forget to lighten up the coating especially on your hairline to make the foundation blend well with your skin. Use light coloured blush as well as light coloured lipstick or lip gloss to complete your look.
The party look – The makeup style used for partying can be flashy, colourful, and playful. You can explore your creative and artistic skills to achieve the party look. Experiment on colours and try on bold combinations.
The professional look – The professional look is just like the natural look, but is elevated. Just as when you’re trying to achieve a natural look, put on foundation that matches your skin tone. Apply concealer if necessary. Add a bit of blush. Use mascara to emphasise your lashes, and eyeliner to make your eyes more noticeable. You can even apply earth toned eye shadow. Give finishing touches by adding a pinkish coloured lipstick.
The special events look – This makeup style can be used for special occasions such as weddings. You want to add more colour to look presentable but not too much that you’ll appear to be stealing the show. To achieve this look, use a natural coloured foundation, concealer, and you can try to apply a touch of smoky eye shadow to achieve a sexier look, but make sure to tone it down, you don’t want to look like a partygoer in a solemn event. Finally, add lipstick that can make your lips pop out a bit.
