Put Your Best Face Forward. By Krystal Santiago. I Love Hair!

We all wear the perfect shoes to compliment our clothes, and we all do our hair to compliment our?….  Our face!

While natural beauty may be best, there is always something we like to hide, such as dark circles, and something we would like to accentuate, such as cheek bones.

Now, if you’re a fanatic, you can follow the new spring trends.  Go bold orange, pale pastel, or other bright colors.  But, let’s be honest.  Most of us are mothers working 9-5 and just do not have the time or money to invest in a case of makeup and applicators.

Here’s some cheap quick tips or an everyday look on a budget.

For one, I love NYC concealer sticks.  They can be found at the pharmacy and they cover those blemishes and under-eye bags.  Apply yellow under eyes, and green to red spots.

Rimmell London has inexpensive face powders or bronzers.  I apply a light coat over my entire face.  (Make sure everything is well blended.)  Now you have even skin tone and a nice glow.

It’s time to add blush.  In small circular motions on the apples of your cheeks.  (Smile to find those.)  You can wear your blush like this for a natural look.  Just add lip gloss and mascara and some eyebrow pencil.  For a bolder look, add a color to the crease in your eyes.  (Again, blend.)

Here’s the fun part!  My favorite eyeliner is Smashbox, and can be bought at Sephora.  It is black as black, and lasts all day!  Line the upper and inner bottom of your eyes.  If you want a more drastic look, add a wing with liquid liner from the outer corner of your eye toward the end of your brow.

End if all with a bold red lip.  My favorite is Russian Red by Mac.

These are general tips and we are all different, so different variations on color and/or technique can be played with.  I hope it works for you.  It does for me.  Enjoy!
