3D FACE

STEP 1

If you want to create a natural three-dimensional look, try using a two-toned foundation. For example, follow your hairline down to the lines of your jaw using a dark color (two shades darker than your color) foundation in an upward motion of about 1 cm with a middle size brush.

Nasolabial folds or any wrinkles on the face can make you look old. In such cases, use a corrector and concealer around the nose area to give a brightening effect. Next, fill in the empty spaces between your eyelashes. Then take the cream highlighter using a cotton swab and apply over the eyelashes and eyes’ end for a 3D look.

If you want to slim your face, use a bronzer or dark eyeshadow to blend up and into the hairline. Pale skin can also make your face look wider. Make sure to shade the hairline using dark foundation.

To make the illusion of your face look smaller, you need two types of highlighters. First, for the inner parts of the hairline to create a natural gloss, and next for the eyes and nose area. Use a cream type highlighter from the middle of the forehead down to the nose, which will brighten the contour areas. Then blend the pearl highlighter under the eyes and chin to produce a brightening skin effect.

LUMINOUS FACE

STEP 1

A moisturizing oil goes on the face before any base product. But on a busy morning, choose a foundation that includes both oil and serum. Sometimes mixing foundation with any shimmering product in 7:2 ratio can produce a similar effect.

STEP 2

To have a perfect luminous skin, you need to cover the blemishes and dark circles under the eyes using a concealer. The corrector can also diminish the unwanted facial discolorations. Lastly, the luminous foundation will prevent any caking on the face, and rosy color liquid highlighter under the eyes will brighten the face.
