When talking about the effect of Photoshop, which is easily achievable with properly applied makeup, it is important to know that you should firstly adopt a quality skincare routine. So before you reach for brushes, foundation and the rest of your favourite makeup products, go through those precious beauty tips which will provide you with the greatest secrets to the perfect photo-shopped look.
Keep Your Skin Smooth and Hydrated…
In order to gain the best effects from the foundation, you must get rid of accumulated skin cells by using gentle peeling treatments at least once a week. You can find some pretty cool natural recipes for home-performed peeling or you can turn to popular methods offered in spa centers such as painless mechanical removal of the surface skin layers known as microdermabrasion.
If you have excessively dry skin use a raw honey facial mask which supports,exfoliating process, improves collagen production and retains moisture in your skin cells. Once your skin is cleaned and properly hydrated it will exude radiant and a healthy appearance.
Pick The Right Liquid Foundation…
According to Celebrities Makeup Artists liquid foundation is the base of the smooth finish where the right choice plays the key role. Although the selection of an ideal foundation can be a real nightmare, the truth is that our skin tone changes depending on the seasons. Hence the best solution is to mix two shades of foundation in adequate proportions where you will increase darker tones during the Summer and lighter shades in Winter days.
Ladies with greasy skin should opt for oil-free formulas to avoid “melting”. While women whose skin is dry can rely on highly hydrating foundations preferably those based on E-Vitamin serums. Quality cushion compact or toned moisturisers can be a great alternative if your skin can’t stand regular foundations.
Pressed and loose powder foundations should be your best friend whenever you strive a shine-free appearance. Especially if you deal with oily skin. However be careful with the amount you apply, since too much of powder foundation can highlight face imperfections, pores and wrinkles. Also don’t forget to evenly cover your neck and behind the ears.
Normally your makeup sessions take place within the comfort of your bathroom where the artificial lighting creates illusions. So if you want to avoid having unnaturally tinted skin, you have got to check the effect in the daylight. Apply the foundation (or a few of them if you mix) along your jawline. Go outside with a mirror and stick to the shades equal to your natural skin tone.
Perfect The Effect With Primer and Concealer
With an aim to achieve a creases free look its recommendable to complement your makeup with an adequate primer which successfully disguises anything from blemishes to pores. Another secret weapon is a concealer. But make sure you use it frugally, on the eyelids, under the eyes and around the nose or mouth. For a fresh and healthy appearance apply a bit of bronzer to your cheekbones.
As soon as you try some of those pretty miraculous makeup tricks, you will realise that flawless appearance is possible all the time and everywhere, not just in the photo-shopped images.
