Makeup Tips For A Beautiful Finish
Tinted moisturizers are the latest in face makeup innovations. They’re sheer makeup that gives an incredible glow to your complexion while making your skin appear smooth and even. Makeup tips for working with a tinted foundation can help you achieve the right color and even help give you a little extra coverage where you need it. Makeup artists know that even good products can be made just a little bit better without a whole lot of skill.
Sheer Makeup Tips
There are several makeup tips that you can put to use for you right away to get the most from tinted moisturizers. From matching to mixing, these makeup artist techniques are simple enough that anyone can do them. Take your time and start with just small amounts. Then try some new mixtures for yourself.
- To choose your initial foundation match select the general shade range you normally wear. The colors are very forgiving because they are mixed with a moisturizing base.
- When you are testing types of cosmetics let them dry completely on your face and then check them in 15 minutes. Use the directions for comparing foundations. As they dry they change color so it may turn out to be a little darker or lighter.
- Correct your shade by buying the same product, but a shade lighter or darker depending on your needs. It’s easier to mix a product from the same company.
Going Lighter: Take both of your products. Put three drops of your closet face makeup match on a makeup palette. Add one drop of your lighter color. Mix them and try the swipe. You can even use a little cotton swab to mix and apply. Still too dark? Add another drop of your lighter product.
Going Darker: It only takes a drop or two to go darker. Use the same technique that you do for going lighter, but just use the darker tinted makeup shade a drop at a time.
Foundation Coverage Tips
Okay, so you just love the feel and look of tinted moisturizers but you need a little extra touch of coverage. Is it possible? Yes, using makeup artist techniques you can layer your products in just two steps:
Apply your tinted moisturizer. For a smoother skin look use a makeup primer first, let it dry and them apply your foundation product. Let the foundation dry completely.
Take your best mineral makeup in a shade nearest your own skin tone and apply lightly. Buff the finish. It’s like using the tinted sheer makeup as a base and getting extra foundation coverage with the second product.
Tinted moisturizers work well for a number of makeup uses, which is why the pros usually have one or two in their kits. Pick up one the next time you go makeup shopping and try it out for yourself. You’ll be glad you did!
