ღMγsтєяισυsღ: How to use makeup in a way to enhance features?
When I wear makeup, it always looks as more of a cover up than enhancing. Only once did my makeup enhance my green eyes, and that was when I did a smokey eye with gold, copper and brown.
I see pictures of beforeafter makeup (no photoshopping!) and the makeup really helps the model.
It doesnt “help” me, it just changes my appearance
What am I doing wrong?

def get some highlighter! always worksAnswer by Emily overton
Well mascara is usually pretty nice, if it doesn’t clump up.
But with foundation and stuff, you only wanna put it where you need it. So if you have redness on your chin, and acne on your forehead, only cover up those spots with concealer/foundation whatever. Then it won’t look cakey and weird, like some girls do it and it’s all over their face.
And natural looking eyeshadows usually look nice. Browns, pinks, pale gold, that sorta thing.
So just make sure you don’t wear too much, and I think you’ll be good 🙂Answer by xox
Might be apply too much using the wrong colours.
ex: Using a blush way to dark/ applying it in the wrong area (if you apply on whole cheek rather then apples)
heavy eye shadow and heavy lip stick/ colours that both stand out (look like their competing)
Make sure your applicationn goes on properly
Focus on one part of the face to be dramatic. Lips OR eyes
Choose colours that compliment your skin tone
Dont go too heavy on application
Maybe some of these videos will help (:
Goodluck! You can always experiment (:Answer by M&M
You might be applying too much of the wrong stuff. What you need to do, is take the time to pick out your right skin tone in foundation. This makes a big difference(obviously :p). Moisturizer is a very important step…do that first. Liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer is a good choice. Apply a small amount to the back of your hand and use your finger to apply a thin layer all over your face. The warmth of your fingers help blend the make up better. Its okay if it doesn’t cover up all the redness or blemishes. Use concealer(only if you need to) and cover up redness of blemishes. Blend it out but not too much or you’ll wipe it away. Pat it on the spot and then blend out the area around it so it will fade into your skin. Then use powder to set everything and and keep your makeup there for a little while longer. For eyes, browns and coppers are good colors for green eyes as well as blue. To define your eyes, draw a THIN line on your top lash line and a VERY THIN line on the bottom lash line. If the color is dark but thin, it will enhance your eyes. If your lashes are dark, you could just curl your lashes and leave them like that, but if you want, its always good to apply a little. Just make sure its not clumpy mascara. Light blush on the apples of your cheeks gives you a natural looking flush and gives your face a healthy look to it. Again, not too much. If you want to apply bronzer, get a big fluffy brush get a LITTLE bronzer on it and use the “3B” method to apply it. Drag it from the middle of your forehead, across your temple, under your blush(if you have any on) and to your chin in one continuous wipe. Do the same on the other side. Lipstick to match your lip color. Some have darker lips naturally and some have really light pink lips, but you can always to whatever color you want as long as it isn’t to much. If you have a lot going on on your eyes and face, natural color. If you did your eyes and face really natural, you can do a bolder lip color. Gloss to match if you like.
Phew. That’s a lot. :p Hope I helped! 🙂Answer by IndiangirlLOVESmakeup
to look great
you should learn good application of makeup
with lots of practice learn how to do a smokey eye, neutral eye look
using highlighter on browbone makes a lot of difference (wet n wild single eyeshadow brulee is a great highlighter)
transition color (between eyelid and browbones) makes a lot of difference
most important is using colors that flatter your skin color
