Good Makeup Is Easy

Did you know that good makeup is really simple? Understanding where to highlight and where to shadow is key
.
Also using matte (non-shimmery) makeup is flattering for any skin over 30 years of age

.
This is because shimmer magnifies fine lines and skin texture
.
Making wrinkles more prominent (stand out more)
.
Not that there’s anything wrong with wrinkles-every human gets them
.
But our culture values soft, clear skin, and minimizing fine lines makes you seem fresh, healthy, and competent
.
This adds to your likeability and helps you attract others

.
A highlighter that is one shade lighter than your skin tone lifts your features
.
Use it in concealer, foundation, or powder around your face in a C-shape framing your eyes, on top of your cheekbones, down your nose (if proportional and narrow,) and under your eyes,
.
including at your tear duct and just under the arch of your brow
.
Shadowing, or contour, is used to frame your face

.
Similar to a picture frame around beautiful art
.
Use it to diminish the appearance of extra skin under your chin too
.
Smooth your eyebrows with wax and moisturize your lips to finish
.
Easy! Just remember: highlighter make bigger and shadowing makes smaller
