Shimmer Makeup Secrets
Almost all makeup looks for winter events emphasize the use of shimmer products and with good reason.
Using makeup with glimmer can be very enhancing under holiday lights.
There’s a real problem with trying to create these makeup looks – It’s easy to overdue it!
The secret to using shimmer is simple – Pair it with matte foundation and use it lightly.
How To Select Shimmer Makeup
There are some very choices when it comes to shimmer makeup. If you haven’t used a shimmer highlighter before then go for a light powder with very fine iridescent shimmer in it. It will create a very subtle glow.
Holiday Makeup Tips
Always wear your best makeup primer. Any shimmer in your makeup will also highlight imperfections. You want your skin to look smooth and using a primer will do just that. Plus, it helps your makeup stay on longer.
Use a cosmetics concealer product for discoloration and blemishes. The reason you do it first is that if it’s not enough you can go back after putting on your foundation and spot cover.
Using a matte foundation will set off the makeup because it provides the base for contrasting the highlight on your beautiful skin. Lightly dust with mineral veil. Now that you’ve created the base, it’s time to shimmer up.
Where To Place The Highlights
- Place highlights on your upper cheekbones using one light sweep.
- Shimmer can go just under your eyebrows on the browbone.
- Use a little on the top of your shoulders.
How To Get The Look Without Using Shimmer Powder
If you don’t care for shimmer powders there are other ways to glisten. You could wear a holiday makeup look and add shine by using red lipstick or a coral lipstick with gold glimmer. You can go with a matte lipstick and blush color and then play up your eyes with frosted shadows.
A quick way to try one of the holiday makeup looks before you buy new products is to use a frosted shadow like you would a shimmer product. If you like the results then go ahead and buy a shimmer powder.
When it comes to shimmer, just remember that less is more. Keep it simple and elegant for the most glamorous holiday makeup looks.
