There are several types of beauty enhancing cosmetics increasing on the market today. It is very important to find out which products are best for you and your completion. The color of your skin will determine what color type you that you must adhere to or avoid to see your best results. The best part about the use of good cosmetics is that the less is more. The less you apply, the more natural it will appear. Nobody wants to appear to have their make-up caked on.
How do I know what season suits me best
The key to choosing the right colors to enhance your beauty is to find out what season you are. Your season will depend on the color of your hair. You can go to many cosmetic web sites and use their hair color selector to find out what time of year is best for you. Many local beauty shops and kiosks also have trained staff that can help you as well. The basic idea of what your definition of season is very simple. If you have a dark, cool hair, which does not have red or gold in it than you are winter. If your hair is dark and warm, with red or gold highlights, then you will be associated with the season of fall. Light hair works the same way. Spring colors for for those with red and gold highlights and summer is for those without. Once you know your season, then you can identify what will work best for you.
Where to begin: Building The Foundation
The Type of foundation you decide to use will be key to how all the cosmetics work together. There are so many types of foundations, it may seem like an over whelming process. Three major categories are liquids, powders, and mineral. Liquid foundation is very easy to apply, but difficult to mix and give a natural look and feel. Sometimes it can leave lines when applied too thick, or not match the exact skin tone. Powder foundation is very simple and can easily be carried with you for re-use, if necessary. The main complaint with this type of foundations is the cake look when you need to hide blemishes. In order to avoid the over application of powder foundation use a concealer before application on any blemishes that can be seen. Mineral based foundations are very smooth and sleek. They cover blemishes easily and blend well so you do not see lines or get an unnatural look to your skin. Whatever style you choose, make sure that the foundation is applied correctly to get subtler and natural feel and look.
The importance of always using your color pallet
Once you know your season it is very important to stick with your color blends. The choice of random colors and tones can greatly affect your natural makeup look. You should look like you enhanced your beauty when you are finished, and not made up. The color pallet will allow you to use color which works well with your hair color and skin tone, to give you the image of perfection. The idea is to enhance your features, not over power them. Highlighting your cheekbones and delicately accentuating your eyes will go a long way. The idea of cosmetic application is not to make up your face, but to easily add to its natural beauty. Always remember, less cosmetics means more enhanced natural beauty.
