How to Apply High School makeup for Girls
Girls, your face is your fortune. You must make the most of it.
Every girls face tells a story. And it can be a good story. Of character, intelligence and attractiveness.
Learn to use makeup sparingly and wisely, to bring out most appealingly – the real you.
- Powder Makeup
And it begins with powder. A good face powder should be fine and soft.
It is dusted on to a soft cotton pad and spread to cover a large area.
Gently pat the powder on to the skin, pressing a little. Removing the cotton pads straight outwards.
Always use a powder that is of the same general tone as your skin.
Once you have covered your face with powder, pull the cotton back on itself.
With the clean surface of the pad, dust off all the excess powder.
The movements of the pad are very similar to those used to apply the powder.
- Lip Makeup
Lips are first outlined to the right shape. The mastery of the use of a lip brush is of paramount importance – in choosing an attractive lip line. Once the outline has been drawn with the lip brush, the rest of the lip is filled in. Use a lipstick of a color that compliments the tone of your skin. Draw lightly from the corner to the center. steadying hand with little finger resting against the chin. Now fill in rest of lips.
- Skin Blemishes
You may have skin blemishes. Usually this is the result of insufficient or improper washing.
Or improper diet! Minimize their appearance by using a medicated cover cream or a stick.
This cream or paste comes in different shades.
Of course select the one that is closest to your natural skin tone.
A little is applied with the tip of the finger. Blend it so that the spot is not obvious. And covered with powder. But remember, plenty of washing, proper food and plenty of rest is the best medicine. Even for prevention of blemishes.
- Eyebrow Makeup
Before going on to eyebrows, use a tweezers to get rid of a few stray eyebrow hairs.
Pluck only between the eyes and below the brow – never above.
The most beautiful eyebrows look the most natural and use an eyebrow pencil to emphasize the natural brow. The shaping has been done by nature and the bit of plucking you may do.
Beginning from the inner corner of the eye, sketch lightly outward.
Towards the tip of the ear – not the lobe !
The eyebrow brush helps to train the eyebrow and blends the pencil to achieve a more natural look.
By slightly shaping the eyebrows, great advantage can be taken of your face shape.
Because she is blonde, Marge needs a little more emphasis on her brows and does it.
With the manner in which she applies the pencil and later uses the brush – is just the same.
She brushes lightly from the center outwards towards the tip of the ear.
Especially for light haired girls, mascara gives the appearance of heavier lashes. For this purpose – a brown mascara is best. Always use colors that compliment your natural color.
Apply the mascara to the upper lashes only, using an upward sweep from the bottom of the lashes.
Now there is an attractive girl.
- Curling Lashes
Not all of us are endowed with beautiful curly lashes. We can beat nature at her own game by using eyelash curlers. You can do this either before or after applying mascara.
Just fit the curler under the lash, so that when you press, your eyelashes are curled slightly by the pressure.
- Blotting Lipstick
By this time your lipstick has set, so that with a piece of face tissue, folded twice to make a long strip
You can blot your lips. Do this three or four times or until there is no longer any stain on the tissue.
Remember that good health is the basis for happiness and beauty.
