Makeup tips for African American girls

Posted on by Sunbelz.com

Treat your mouth as you would the rest of your face: Moisturize and protect it. Choose a balm with an SPF of at least 15, and reapply often.  Now that you’ve had a few days to ease out of weekend mode, step up your red lip look by going for a full Janelle Monae. Like many aspects of Monae’s style, nothing about her lipstick game is sloppy.

Replicate the style by using a liner to outline the lips. Top lips with a classic red shade and commit to sipping through straws all day to help prevent fading

How to choose the right lipstick Lipstick is perhaps the most important beauty tool in any woman’s handbag.
The right choice of lipstick can take your look on to a new level of style, but similarly picking the wrong one can be a disaster.
Here’s our guide to making sure you choose the right lipstick.Undertones

Whenever you make any makeup choices, undertones should be at the heart of your decision. Knowing your undertone is vital if you are going to pick the right lipstick for your style.
Your skin will typically either have a black yellow brown or a pink undertone and there is an easy way to find out which one you have.
to check your undertones is to hold pieces of gold and silver jewellery up to your face. Pink tones look better with gold pieces and silver jewellery will look good if your skin has yellow undertones.



Selecting a shade
Once you have established what skin undertone you have, you can think about shades.
Shades that are similar to your skin undertone will usually look best. So if you have pink undertones to your skin, stick to lipstick colours that are warm.


Women who have yellow undertones to their skin should instead look to lipsticks that have blue or purple tinges to them.
Finally, it is recommended that lipsticks that are overly pale, or have a grey or ashy shade to them, should be avoided altogether, as they have a tendency to make you look sickly.

Big lips


Your choice of lipstick has a massive impact on how your lips will look.
For instance, contrary to popular opinion, darker shades of lipstick will typically make your lips seem smaller than they are. In contrast, lighter colours of lipstick add plumpness.
Women who want their lips to look a touch thinner should also consider a lipstick with a matte finish, while those looking for a fuller lip could choose shimmery and glossy shades.

Skin colour
It is not just the undertones of your skin colour that are a big factor in your choice of lipstick.
Women who have really fair skin can have a lot of fun with their makeup and lipstick is one of the areas that can make a big difference to their style. Deep colours such as bold reds pop out and look great on ladies who have fair skin.


If you have an olive complexion then your undertones will probably be neutral, giving you a wide range of choices for your selection of lipstick. Red, nude, orange and pink shades will all look good on you, so you can make sure your lipstick works well with your outfit. But try not to match your clothes and lipstick too closely as it can be a touch overwhelming.
Ladies with darker skin should steer clear of anything too light or pale, with deeper shades tending to be more flattering. However, a statement lip in a bright colour such as orange can still look great if you are bold enough to pull it off. A caramel lipstick can be a fine choice for a woman with dark skin.


Experimenting
While these rules can act as a guideline for how to pick your perfect lipstick, experimenting is the best way to get your makeup and style looking really on point.
Try before you buy wherever you can. The pads of your fingertips are usually a similar colour to your lips, so this is a good place to test a new lipstick before you commit to a purchase.
Always make sure you are in a place that is well lit whenever you are trying on a new lipstick, as this will give you a true picture of how it looks.

Never be afraid to ask for help or advice from a makeup expert if you’re still unsure about a lipstick, although if you are having doubts, it is probably not the right one to choose.

It is also best to try new lipsticks when you are not wearing a lot of other makeup. When you find a shade that brightens your whole face you know you have got the right lipstick for you.

What Is Makeup Primer, And Do You Need It?

Makeup primer is a base for foundation or face makeup that allows it to go on smoother and last longer.

Formulas are available in cream, gel and powder. While moisturizer softens skin, editorial and celebrity makeup artists points out that primer prepares skin for your favorite tinted moisturizer or foundation, giving it something to hold onto so it lasts throughout the day.

Many makeup primers are formulated with silicone-based polymers like dimethicone because of their ultra-smoothing effects.


But for those who struggle with cystic acne and other skin conditions, do a patch test or check with a medical professional before use, as there have been reports of allergic reactions to dimethicone.
makeup artists  adds that makeup primers can also help smooth any fine lines, wrinkles or large pores. If you are searching for a face primer to help color-correct rosacea or conceal acne spots, Schlip’s go-to is this light green primer as that hue cancels out redness.

Primers are even available just for your eyelids to prevent creasing. “I’d recommend pairing a primer with extra long-wear [eyeshadow or eyeliner] formulas for a look that will really stay put,” . If you have oilier eylids,  advises that you use a mattifying eyelid primer.

Using your fingertips to apply makeup primer allows you to really work the product into your skin.

it’s best to apply primer with fingertips for areas larger than a quarter. “If only using for small areas, I’d recommend a brush. I like to use a concealer or lip brush for this,” . This spot-treat technique gives the look of a more natural finish.

Taking this routine a step further, considers the process “an exercise for the face.” that massaging primer onto skin with fingertips helps “to get the blood flowing underneath.” We’ll consider that the next time we’re meditating while putting on makeup.

Primer is a life-saver for getting your makeup to stay-put in extreme weather.



If you live, visit or plan on traveling anywhere that experiences hot and humid or cold and dry temperatures, Schlip suggests having primer handy to help your makeup wear longer. However, Dimmick advocates for using primer year-round. “No matter what the weather is like outside, this extra step will save you a lot of time and effort.”



Primer can even be worn on its own.
Love the fresh no-makeup look but want to look a bit more polished than when you first woke up? Primer is your answer. The product can be worn on your eyelids and double as a light eye shadow, or it can serve as a lighter alternative to foundation.

They always use the face models with the prettiest lips to advertise makeup because, they know that they will look good no matter what colour lipstick they chose to wear. Plus these girls all have flawless complexions, it’s obvious they are perfect to model makeup.
