Flaunting A Flawless Foundation

Having a flawless foundation is one of the top items on the list of beauty secrets that every woman aspires to have. Having the right finish is more than just choosing the right color, there are a number of factors involved in making sure your skin is protected while wearing it.  There are some products on the market that can cause harm or irritation if you’re not careful, so a foundation that is safe and formulated with healthy ingredients is a must.

Why wear foundation?

Foundation is used for a number of purposes. Your skin may tend to be oily throughout the day and you want to maintain a balanced look, or you may have hyper pigmentation and wish to use light coverage to even the skin tone.  Individuals with different skin concerns, such as scars may need more coverage to smooth out problem areas.

Cool Ways to Use Concealer

The beauty industry makes their profit from a variety of products, but there are a few items that have multiple uses. Concealer is a beauty staple that can be used in a variety of ways. Most women use concealer to cover blemishes, dark circles or skin tone that may appear uneven. Concealer is used underneath or on top of the application of Beauty Cocktails foundation with the Luminess airbrush system. Although this is the general use, there are a few other beauty secrets and ways to use foundation that most people don’t know. Here are a few beauty tips that will enhance your beauty regimen while keeping your budget intact:

Longer Lasting Lipstick

You can use concealer on the lips to make your lipstick last longer. Evenly apply a light coat prior to putting on your lipstick and let it dry. This will help your lipstick color pop and reduce feathering while adding a level of dimension to your lips. You will achieve the appearance of fuller lips without the need for eye liner.

Deeper, Fuller Lashes

You can use concealer as a lash thickener or primer prior to applying your coats of Infinity Long Lash Mascara. This will condition your eyelashes and help deepen the color. Apply the concealer with a clean lash brush, extending the concealer to the tips. This adds volume and depth with immediate results.

Natural Eye Shadow

Concealer can be used as a natural eye shadow to give your eyes a quick pop without the use of color. This will provide a smooth, neutral finish that will accentuate the eyes. Finish up with mascara and liner for an everyday look that works.

Beautiful Skin Highlighter

Concealer can be used to highlight your blush for a rosy finish. There are two ways to do this:

  • You can dot the area with a few drops of concealer, blending it into the skin. Add a powder blush to the area with a blush brush for a great finish.
  • Blend cream blush and concealer together to add a warm finish to your face. This will provide a toned, natural highlight while providing the illusion of an inner glow.

Knowing the different ways to use beauty products can work wonders when you’re on the go or you only have certain products in your makeup bag. Concealer is a product that can help enhance those on-the-go trips or emergency situations when you need a refresher and don’t have access to your beauty tools. Being creative with certain products like concealer can help you in a pinch while still giving you the quality looks of a professional makeover.

These are just a few cool ways that concealer can enhance your beauty secrets and feel like a pro. When putting together your makeup bag, you won’t have to have a bunch of products to get the same result – you can just use one!

Blush Vs. Bronzer

What’s the difference between blush and bronzer?
Bronzer is generally used to create a tanned look as well as for light contouring on the face. Blush is used to give your cheeks a naturally flushed effect.

In which order should they be used, and where?
Use your bronzer first, and blush second. I apply bronzer slightly underneath the cheekbones to, on the tops of the cheekbones, a light sweep across the forehead and a little under the chin to lightly contour. Then I add blush to the apples of my cheeks.

So you can use blush and bronzer together?
Of Course! The best trick to making your cheeks the perfect color is to apply bronzer and blush together. The combination of the two gives you the most natural finish possible.

Can bronzer help accentuate your cheekbones?
Absolutely, it just needs to be applied to the correct areas. Applying a darker bronzer under your cheekbones is a great way to help make them stand out.

What’s better, matte or shimmer bronzer?
When applying bronzer to the tops of your cheekbones, a shimmer such as our Shimmer Bronzer adds a hint of glamour to your beauty look. A matte bronzer is more suitable for contouring.

How do I know if I’m wearing the right shade of blush?
If you look overly embarrassed, you’re not on the right track. Try to choose a color that isn’t much darker than your natural skin tone. Never forget that when in doubt, less is always more!
