When it comes to beauty and makeup, there is so much to learn that even experts can sometimes feel overwhelmed. However, if you’ve ever wondered about those little makeup secrets that all the professionals seem to know, then you’re in the right place, as OROGOLD has put together some fantastic makeup tricks for every type of skin.
Color theory is something that every makeup user should be aware of, and is the foundation when it comes to successful makeup techniques. Find a color wheel online, as you are likely to need this extra guidance at the beginning. Opposite colors cancel each other out, meaning that if you have a red pimple, applying a green-toned concealer is the best way to hide it. This is a trick that many makeup artists use, and a color wheel really is so useful when it comes to working out which shades work best with your skin tone or eye color.
Highlighter Underneath Foundation
This is a great way to achieve the ‘glowing from within’ look that many celebrities are sporting these days. By applying your highlighter before applying your foundation, your complexion will be given a natural-looking glow that will stick around throughout the day.
Finish Your Foundation With Your Fingers
Foundation needs to look smooth and blend well into your skin, and while it can sometimes be difficult to achieve this with brushes, your fingers will never fail you. By using your fingers, you will be able to gently press the foundation into your skin, without leaving a spotty or streaky finish. The warmth from your hands will also help to heat the foundation up, which makes it much easier to blend.
Hide Dark Circles
Dark circles are something that we all experience at one point or another, no matter what our skin type may be. While you may usually reach for concealer or foundation to hide these, there is a much better way to go about it. OROGOLD recommends first preparing the area under your eyes with an eye cream that is hydrating and quick to absorb, such as the OROGOLD 24K Dark Circle Eye Solution. Then, apply a corrector to cover over any green or purple tones, before following this up with the concealer that you usually use.
Use HD Powder Sparingly
HD powder has become extremely popular in recent years, giving the skin a soft but flawless look, hiding any imperfections for the camera, thereby making the product a favorite amongst celebrities. HD powders contain silica, and this is what reflects the light. However, apply it too heavily and you will be left with a baby powder-white face in any photos. OROGOLD recommends only using HD powders on the parts of your face that contain moisture, such as your T-zone, as this will enable it to fully absorb into the skin, giving you the flawless finish you desire.
While there are many makeup tricks for each of the different skin types, these are some that we can all use, no matter what your skin tone or type may be. From understanding color theory to knowing how to cover up your under eye circles, these makeup tricks will no doubt come in handy.
