How to get a fresh look

Creating a perfect fresh face is not as hard as you think! Sitting in front of the mirror on a lazy day practicing different looks with your makeup can prove surprising results. Playing with your make- up will allow you to become familiar with your face and the colors that best suit your complexion and hair color.

Consider these steps for a natural fresh look; once you get this down you will be able to experiment more. Start with your foundation; you want something light that won't clog you your pores. Use a sponge so that you achieve an even look. Once you have a clean palate to work with. If your skin tends to be oily you can brush on a light dusting of loose powder after applying the foundation.

For your eyes, just mascara. You should wipe your brush on a paper towel to get all the excess off, that way you will have a nice stain on you lashes. No spider lashes! For cheeks, sweep a little blush (a nice peach or pink) on the apples of your cheeks sweeping down towards you jaw line. A little on your jaw line and on your temples make sure you don't use to much, start with a little you can always add. Finish off with a sheer gloss that has a tint of color that compliments your blush. Now you have a quick natural look you can pull off on a daily basis.


If you have a problem with your eye shadow creasing or not lasting because of oily lids make sure to apply a primer or a neutral base (primer primes the eyes before shadow and a neutral base is a flesh colored shadow) before eye shadow.
