Less is Better

Less is Better

Ladies did you know that men prefer women who have a natural look with makeup compared to a heavy look? When you wear too much makeup it can give you a clown look appearance. Choosing the right shade foundation as well as other makeup colors can bring out your natural beauty. How many times have you been out and seen a woman wearing a shade of foundation that does not even come close to matching her skin tone?  You have to blend makeup down your neck and not just stop at your jaw line, because if you don’t do proper blending you can have a look of wearing a mask. I have seen this over and over and I feel bad for woman I see that do this because I want to say something, but I don’t want to come across as rude when I don’t know the person.

I understand each person has their own ides of what colors they prefer and feel beautiful wearing. I would like to provide some ideas and tips of colors that can look good on you. If you have a friend that wears too much makeup with their everyday look you can provide these tips in a nice way to where your tips wont come off rude. Do you like to have full looking lips without having surgery? Well there are different ways to achieve  sexy full looking lips.

In this first look we have very natural looking lips that most ladies can do. You can use a light nude lip liner and a light pink or a nude lipstick. This look provides a sexy full looking mouth with a soft look. Not too much color but just enough. Depending on your skin tone it might be a bit of testing different color nude lipsticks by different companies. I have found not all companies are a true color match for nude lips.

Great for an everyday natural look. Just enough color.

My favorite nude color lipstick Honey is by NYX Cosmetics. This color is so moist and creamy. You can do light touch ups through the day, the Honey looks very natural. Honey would be great to wear if you are going to the store, working out, or even for work. Picking the perfect nude color can be a bit tricky because I have found some lipsticks that look one way and when you put the color on are completely different from what you thought when first looking at it. I like BH Cosmetics for the eye shadows and blush, however I don’t care for the lip sticks or lip gloss colors they have. When I did try lip colors from BH Cosmetics the colors did not even come close to how they look on the website. I was kind of bummed because I like other items by BH. A few tips of advice if you do shop for BH Cosmetics don’t buy the Forever Nude lipstick as the color when you put it on looks like a light peach/pink color. I say this if you like mauve and most browns you wont really care for Forever Nude. As well the Office Queen lip gloss by BH is kind of orange brown. Not my preference at all.

I would suggest NYX Cosmetics lipstick, lip liner and lip gloss all are very affordable. Ranging from $4.00-$6.00 the money is worth it to wear a great product.

When it comes to an overall look for the face what do you prefer? I think it really depends on what the occasion is. Myself for work I like to wear natural colors when I am at work or the gym.

I feel when you put too much makeup on it takes away from your natural beauty. Less is better for sure. Ladies when you are meeting a guy for the first time of course you want to feel that you look your best, but when all a person can see is 10 pounds of makeup this not very attractive. If you don’t know how to use makeup you can always watch videos that can teach you. Let your natural beauty shine through.

If you have any skin imperfections this can make it hard to find what will work best to cover up those troubled areas. A great foundation and concealer called “Derma Blend” is made to target skin that might be uneven in color, birth marks, acne and some ladies use it to cover up tattoos as well pregnant ladies can use this. The great thing about Derma Blend is you don’t need very much at all. Derma blend is for heavy coverage, but it wont give you a heavy foundation or concealer look unless you apply to much. I use Derma Blend and I love it. I never have to use very much. Derma Blend works well if you have problem skin and have acne. This makeup doesn’t tend to irritate the skin. I have very sensitive skin so I had to try many different brands over the years. Derma Blend can be a bit of a sticker shock depending on where you get it from, but the great thing about this makeup is it will last you a very long time if you don’t over use it. For example if you buy the 30 ml-1.0fl. oz foundation this should last you at least 6 months maybe longer. You can try it at Macy’s, but I wouldn’t buy it from there as Macys’ s is more expensive than other department stores the sell Derma Blend. I would purchase it from the Derma Blend website.

Here is a link for Dema Blend cosmetics. I recommend trying this brand if you have problem skin. http://www.dermablend.com/aboutus.aspx

When I talk about too much make up the below picture represents this.

This look is very heavy and doesn't have a natural feel to it. The eyebrows are very arched and the eyeliner is very thick.

This look is very heavy and doesn’t have a natural look to it. The eyebrows are very arched and the eyeliner is very thick. The fake eyelashes are a bit long. This look would be  something I would think will work if you are a performer or are doing a photo shoot.

Remember ladies being honest with your friends is important so if you have friends that wear too much makeup or like to wear a shade of lipstick that does not flatter the natural beauty they have let them know in a nice way.
