How to change your look with the seasons
Changing tones of makeup with the seasons does not mean having to purchase a whole new cosmetic kit – simply add to what you already have. You can radically change your look simply by changing up your:
- Contour color
Get your face ready for fall, like this beauty. She rocks gorgeous dark auburn lipstick and painted her eyes with a beautiful copper eye shadow. She emphasizes her eyebrows and lashes by keeping them nice and bold. This is definitely an inspirational fall look for all girls to wear this season.
If you would like to get this beauty’s makeup look, all you need to do is focus on the three most important things: contouring, eyes, and lips.
The most beneficial thing any t-girl could do for themselves would be to buy a great contouring kit. This will really help them get that girly look they are looking for. When applying your makeup you want to start with contouring horizontally down both sides of your nose, lower cheekbones, lower chin, and the top of the forehead. Refer to the picture below for added assistance. When contouring, you want to use a shade that is about 2x darker than your actual skin tone and when highlighting you want to use a shade 2x lighter. To begin highlighting, you outline the middle of your nose, forehead and under the eyes. When your whole face is outlined, you start blending it all together from the outside in. You finally set your contour makeup with bronzer and highlights with translucent powder. This makeup look will give your face a great dimension, make your face look skinnier, and give you great cheekbones.
The eyes are equally as important as your face makeup! You want to have a steady hand for applying eye makeup. This is key to getting straight lines. First, apply whatever eyeshadow primer you own. If you don’t own any, don’t worry! It isn’t necessary. After that, apply your desired earthy tone color to your eyelids. For example, any browns, copper, purple, etc. Keep it sparkly, for added glamour. On the creases of your eyes add a darker shade that complements the color you chose. To emphasize your eyes, even more, take your black or brown eyeliner and outline your top eyelids. Here at Glamour Boutique, we have everything you need from eyebrow stencil kits to easy to apply False Eyelashes in different lengths to help bring your fall look to life.
**A tip to keep your lines straight. Put your pointer finger at the side of your eye and pull your skin closer to your ear, so your eyelids tighten and stretch. This makes it easier to paint on the eyeliner.
Lastly, pick your favorite dark shade lipstick and apply it to your lips.
**To make your lips look bigger, outline your lips with a lipstick pencil. Try and put the lipstick only a little over where your lips actually end to make them look fuller.
