How to be flawsome
Accentuate your best features and hide the ones you least like for an all-round flawless look that makes you more confident. Boom!
Sometimes you look in the mirror and can’t help wishing you could bring more attention to your best assets and hide the ones that you aren’t a big fan of. It could be small eyes and thick, full lips for you and the opposite for your best friend. If you know which beauty tricks to follow, you’ll be set and won’t wonder how the celebs get it right.
Firstly, decide which part of your face you want to draw attention from and which one you’d like to highlight. The brighter and more enhanced it is, the more attention will be drawn to it, vice-versa.
For a flawless face
A good BB Cream will help hydrate your skin as well as even your skin tone and brighten it. Pick one with SPF so you don’t miss out on sun protection. To mattify your face and seal your knock-out look, apply a powder that matches your skin tone. Here’s to having photo-ready skin as clear and smooth as Bonang Matheba’s.
Hiding those dark spots
Apply concealer to hides your blemishes or dark spots. Pick one that matches your skin tone so that it looks natural. If you apply the concealer on to your blemishes, use powder above it. An important thing is to avoid using too much powder or concealer. Concealer also helps with darkness around the eyes.
For a beautiful glow
Apply blush on the cheeks to emphasise your cheeks and give your face that healthy glow. When choosing a blush, choose one that won’t stand out too much from your complexion and keep in mind that powder and gel are great for oily skin while cream is more for dry skin. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks by pulling a fish face. Kim Kardashian is known for her pink or gold blushing ways.
For gorgeous eyes
Wish you had Beyonce’s big round eyes? When it comes to eyes, mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow are your star weapons. Using dark eyeliner on the bottom lid will make your eyes appear smaller. On the other hand, bold, bright eye shadow will give the impression that you have bigger eyes than you actually do.
For the best lips
When it comes to having the lips you want, lip liner, lipgloss and lipstick are your best friends. Using lipliner around your lips will make them appear plumper. The colours you go for are just as important. A bright colour will draw attention to your lips while a more natural colour won't. Another option is to use lipliner on your lips and the use transparent lipgloss.
What if it’s not your face?
Ri-ri is known for her beats as well as for a large forehead. If it’s an issue for you, you can conceal it by getting a fringe. If your ears are too big, you can go for a side parting that covers them instead of an up-do that will make them stand out more.
