Beauty tips no. 2

One of the biggest beauty problems is trying to find the right makeup for your features and skin tone. I am going to tell you right here!

Small features:
If you have small features, like Esmee, it's best not to wear bright or heavy make-up. To make your eyes bigger make sure you have your eyebrows waxed regularly because it will make beauty 100 times easier. Base your make-up around golds, silvers won't necessarily suit you the colour naturally makes your eyes look smaller. Eyeliner looks good but not in a cat eye. Draw it into the eyelashes rather than on top because it makes it more natural. Make sure you don't use a black on your water line as it will make your eyes look smaller, use a white or peach instead because this makes eyes look bigger.

Large features:
When you have large features, like me (Tanya) bright colours will suit you. Don't do makeup up to your eyebrows, it will make your features look smaller and over-dramatic. Eyeliner cat eyes make your eyes look bigger and they suit large features. Black eyeliner on the water-line will suit your features but don't make it too dramatic. Silvers will suit you more than gold.

Pale skin:
If you have pale skin golds will suit you more than silvers as they stand out more, silvers tend to wash out your face. Bright lipsticks will suit you, especially red as it will stand out against your pale face.  Eyeliner will suit you if applied correctly.

Medium skin:
If you have medium colour skin all makeup suits you! you can wear any lipstick you want, any makeup you want practically, unless it's clown makeup, in which case, no.

Dark skin:
If you have dark skin bright coloured eyeliner will really suit you.  Baby pink lipsticks are a big yes and will really stand out, red lipsticks won't suit you because they will clash with your skin colour, a deep red will though.

If you have a lot of freckles, like Esmee, there are some things you need to keep in mind. The first being that silvers won't suit you, golds mix very well with freckles. People who have freckles tend to have pale skin so the same applies.  It works better to wear dramatic lipstick such as red or dark pink to light pinks as they will wash out your face. Foundation will only suit you if you rub it in properly.  If you don't, it will look terrible. You have to find the right foundation for you, you would be surprised how many people make mistakes with their foundation. I recommend going to the counter in John Lewis and having your skin colour tested to see which foundation you should be wearing.  If you can afford it, buy the foundation and if you can't, save up.  BB cream is better for your skin however because it hydrates and moisturises. Because you have freckles, you are likely to have light and pale skin. BB cream normally comes in three shades: light, medium and dark. I recommend light. In most brands the medium is actually very dark. Buy light, but if there is lighter than light, get that. Freckles are only a pain if you don't know how to deal with them.
