Make-up Secrets

Aug 4, 2008
Over weight is not only reflected in the body but also in the face. Glowing and shining hair combined with healthy smile adds to the beauty of even a very obese face. An obese face can look and appear beautiful if you learn the art of hiding the defects like round cheeks, double chin and heavy jaws with right make-up tricks.

Always apply make-up on a very clean face. Therefore first clean the face with good cleansing milk, wash it well, and pat dry.

If the skin is oily then apply astringent and if it is them apply a good moisturizer to the skin.

Use light and dark foundation to slim down and reshape your face. Use light foundation in the areas around the eyes and below the eyes to hide dark circles and also on blemishes. On this apply a dark foundation with damp sponge nicely so that it blends completely with the light foundation.

Puffy cheeks

Create hollowness under the cheekbones with a darker foundation, extend it to the jaw line blending all the time into the skin.

Double chin

Use a dark shade right under the chin with a lighter a lighter shade in the crease on either side. For a fuller broader double chin, apply shading just under the jaw bone. Blend from ear to ear along the jaw line and under the chin.

Broad nose

To slenderize nostrils, apply lighter foundation over the entire nose and then apply darker foundation on either side of the nostrils. For too broad nose apply two strokes of dark foundation down each side.


To apply lipstick properly, you must learn to use the lip brush effectively. You should avoid dark lipsticks and use softer shades. Before applying lipstick, apply foundation to the lips because this makes a good base for the lipstick and at the same time it blots out the natural lip line so that you can outline a prettier shape with your brush. Fill the brush with color, fashion the upper lip first with your lips slightly apart. Start from the outer corner following the natural curve of your lips and work toward the center. Let the tip of the brush draw the line on the upper lip. Use the side of the brush on the lower lip working at one half of the lip at the same time. When the outline is clearly established fill it with color.

Thick lips can be made to look thinner by painting them within the natural lip line and covering the remaining area with foundation cream. If the lips are thin, the upper lip can be extended above the natural lip line but care must be taken to see that the extended portion follows the natural curve of the lips. The lower lip should be full and well-shaped by extending the lip line a little below the natural line of the lower lip. Your focus should be on the eyes; learn how to use eye shadow and mascara artistically. Eye gives an enchanting touch of depth and mystery to the eyes. Eye shadow should only be blended on the upper eyelids. Use dark shades of shadow sparingly. Try mauves, pastel greens and blue instead. Close one eye place a small amount of color to and almost touching the upper eye lashes from inner to outer corner of the eyes. It should then be blended with your index finger or brushed upwards into a fade way effect below the eyebrows. It should be darkest near the lid.


First brush the lashes downwards to remove any foundation sticking to them then upwards over the upper eyelids. Apply mascara with a clean brush. Cover the brush with a light coating of mascara and stroke it on the lashes working from the base to the tip. The lower lashed should be just tinted with color. When the first coat dries, apply a second one. When the second coat also dries, go over the lashes with a dry brush to separate them and remove excess mascara. If properly applied the lashes should be a series of individual hairs and not one solid mass. Remember your eyebrows. They should be well-shaped, therefore always have them shaped from a reputed beautician. For puffiness under the eyes, before applying foundation, use a concealer or a lighter foundation.
