How to wear good makeup: 10 tips that will change your life



If you love make-up but sometimes create messes, know that it’s completely normal, even the most famous make-up artists sometimes make mistakes and create wonders from those “disasters”, or simply use make-up remover and get back to work. Therefore, to transform small daily “disasters” into professional marvels, bearing in mind that the possibility of removing make-up and trying again exists, and it is also very fun – rely on these 10 tips to have no more secrets.

A single concealer is not enough to cover dark circles

Choose an orange concealer and dab it only on the darkest and sunken area of ​​the dark circle. Use another of your skin color for the rest of the area. For a brighter and more awake effect, apply an illuminating concealer with a yellow undertone creating “triangles” under the eyes. Remember to blend well and consider soft backing to set your makeup. What is it about? A light, transparent or light and yellowish face powder. This should guarantee a smoothing effect and maximum hold of the make-up in the eye contour area.

Apply powder only where needed

If you have dry, normal or combination skin, you don’t need to apply powder all over your face. In fact, this product tends to dry out the skin, risking creating a chalky effect. Therefore, if your skin is not particularly oily, concentrate only on the T -zone  (which includes the chin, nose and forehead) to keep lucidity at bay. On the rest of the face, the foundation alone will suffice.

When it comes to eyebrows, perfection doesn’t exist

Someone, to explain how to do good makeup, said “Your eyebrows are sisters, not twins” and he was absolutely right. Don’t insist on creating perfectly symmetrical arches, the effect will be unnatural and unharmonious. Instead, prefer a soft look, both in terms of “setting” and eyebrow styling. In this way your gaze will be in the foreground.

For “perfect” eye makeup always apply the primer

Does the eyeshadow always creep into the eyelid creases, even if yours aren’t very accentuated? It happens when you don’t apply primer. Choose it in your skin color if you prefer a natural effect, or opt for the pearly proposals if you like bright or colored make-up for smokeys. Spread a very small amount with your fingertips (the warmth of your fingers makes the product adhere better) and “pull” the product well to have perfect eye makeup all day long.

To avoid getting dirty with mascara, look down

Do you always get your eyelids dirty when you apply mascara? Try looking down! Prefer a tilting mirror and position it at an angle below you “forcing” yourself to look downwards, then proceed with the application (slowly, otherwise it will be useless!) for a flawless and clean effect.

To apply blush in the right place, just smile

Every face shape should be made up in a “personalized” way. An infallible way to apply blush correctly is to smile looking straight ahead, toward the mirror. The small bumps that will appear on your face (what the Americans call “the apples of the cheeks”) are the perfect and exact point for you, the one where to lightly blend the blush to give you a healthy and radiant effect.

A finger is enough to prevent lipstick from getting on your teeth

Do you like creamy and bright lipsticks but are you constantly afraid that they will end up on your teeth? First of all, don’t go overboard with the application, a thin coat will do just fine. Secondly, insert your index finger in your mouth and slide it out, letting it adhere to the internal lip mucosa, the finger will drag away the excess lipstick.

For an eye lifting effect, try a light pencil

To create an optical eyebrow lifting effect and consequently make the look fresher and younger, try blending a light pencil under the eyebrow arch. Blend the creamy flesh-colored texture well with your eyeshadow to create a pleasant shade. You won’t believe your eyes! The light pencil can also be blended in the inner corner of the eye to open up the gaze but also in the internal rhyme: the eyes will be optically larger and “awake”.

Make your lips voluminous with a pearly eyeshadow

To make your lips plump, apply your usual lipstick, preferably matte and satiny in this case, and then lightly dab a matching pearly eyeshadow or, even better, white or gold in the center of your lips. A small touch is enough to create a 3D effect that can make a difference. Similarly, you can use the pearly eyeshadow to illuminate the cupid’s bow, the bridge of the nose and the top of the cheekbones to obtain a glow effect in perfect harmony.

Set your makeup with cold water

To make your make-up last all day, don’t forget to fix it before leaving the house. To do this you can choose specific products or simple water, preferably cold. Vaporize it on the face to ensure that the make- up lasts optimally throughout the day.

Eyebrows 2023: Five trends from the fashion shows



Defined, filled, curved, trimmed or thinned, there are many actions that can be performed on the eyebrows. Those arches that protect and delimit the gaze, high up, endowed with the power to accentuate the expressiveness of the eyes and, according to the ancients, capable of influencing an individual’s ability to survive. The eyebrows of the new year come in many shapes and colors, one to disappear. The 2023 eyebrow trends welcome all kinds of experimentation, from the most extreme and artificial such as eliminating them completely or covering them with a strip of glitter to the most natural leaving them as Mother Nature made them, without any intervention. Below are the five most evident trends from the Spring Summer 2023 fashion shows.

Colored and bleached eyebrows

Considering the eyebrows as a portion of hair, positioned above the eyes, one can experience the joy of colouring. The color can be used to darken them or cover the white spaces, or to modify their color for a scenographic aspect. The most popular trend observed at Rokh’s show is to lighten them until they become platinum blonde and ice blonde almost until they disappear from view.

Perfect eyebrows, the hikimayu technique revisited

Theatrical, magnetic eyebrows drawn with the ancient Japanese hikimayu are certainly the most artificial. Following the tradition of kabuki theater makeup, the presence of the bows is eliminated from sight. Once upon a time, in Japan, they were literally removed. Now, in Tom Browne’s backstage, they hide with a thick layer of foundation and concealer and then draw themselves with the shape and color of your choice.

Eyebrows, the right shape is the natural one

Eyebrows lightened and colored, removed or intensely made up, the antipodes of these artificial and elaborate arches are natural eyebrows. Those that keep their shape the right one, the one given by Mother Nature and the compactness and density of the hair. Regrowth, including which is not eliminated. The natural eyebrows, also present in the upper space of the nose, between the two arches, worn on the catwalk by Dior, are perfect to be combined with eccentric and graphic eye make-up.

Eyebrows 2023, makeup involves them

Eyebrow makeup doesn’t just mean defining and intensifying them with pencils and creams from blond to dark brown. The 2023 eyebrow make-up allows, according to the trends seen on the catwalk, to apply the same products intended for the eyelids to the arches and, to exceed. Maxi-sized glitter strips can cover them entirely, for silvery and sparkling arches, accessories above the look. Sometimes, makeup is more subtle and understated and it involves the underside of the brows, highlighted with a rhyme of shimmering eyeliner. An idea by Christian Cowan.

Eyebrows, when to get rid of them

Eliminating the eyebrows, removing them entirely or almost with tweezers or a strip of wax as Rick Owens does on the faces of some of his models is one of those actions that should be calibrated in depth. Aware of the fact that, most likely, the eyebrows will never grow back. Or they will do it slowly and partially. To free up the forehead and make it appear wider, some stylists have proposed looks like this. The alternative, if you want to overshadow them, is to confuse them with make-up. Mark Fast’s glittery blue makeup disguises their presence.
