How good foundation application changes our appearance

Foundation is probably one of the most important steps and can help you achieve that flawless looking skin before piling on more products. This helps to balance out your skin tone and complexion as well as cover up any blemishes that you may have.

Tip: Having SPF in your foundation formula would be very beneficial to protect your skin from the damaging sun and the blue light you get exposed to from staring at electrical devices everyday.

How eye makeup changes our appearance

Among all these amazing transformations, we can see that one common facial feature that every transformation has focused on are the eyes.

How getting our brows right changes our appearance

Many women wouldn’t mind leaving their house with little to no makeup – as long as their eyebrows are on point.

This may have a lot of wisdom in it; after all, your eyebrows are the main facial feature that helps frame your face shape and highlight your other best features. As seen in these transformations, eyebrows played a big part in framing face shapes and highlighting other facial features.

How lip makeup changes our appearance

You may think the right lip colour can’t make a drastic change to your appearance (compared to good eye makeup), but this is certainly a misconception.

Choosing the right lip colour that complements your complexion and the rest of your makeup is the finishing touch that can make or break your look. Lip colour helps bring out the mood you’d like to present and can help accentuate the glow in your complexion.

How contouring changes our appearance

Similar to eyebrows, contouring helps define your face shape, with the help of shadows. It helps to highlight your eyes, making it appear more 3-dimensional as well as sharpen main areas like the jawline and nose.

Tip: Remember to get a contour that is at least a shade or two darker than your skin tone in order for it to work and look natural!
