Achieving A Natural Look With Cosmetics

Oct 5, 2007
Most people will choose to use cosmetics because it makes a great difference in their appearance. They feel that their skin looks more refined and that they project a better image than if they chose to leave home without some sort of color on their face. There are other people that use cosmetics but have no idea whatsoever about how to go about achieving a natural look with the cosmetics that they apply to their face.

If a teenager applies cosmetics incorrectly, the parents are liable to say that they think that their child has donned their clown face for the night. This subtle hint will usually make the teenager go back and take a second look at their appearance. With an adult, there is no opportunity for them to listen to snide comments from parents and young adults might not have the courage to make a comment.

If they had made a remark, then those comments would serve to help give them a second opportunity to correct their appearance. An innocent opinion on how they thought their parent looked could be taken as a positive or negative comment but everything would be out in the open and would allow the appearance to be changed before they joined friends for dinner and embarrassed themselves.

Some women are too cautious when applying cosmetics to their facial region. They might choose a base color that is not their real skin tone. The coloring might be too pale and make them take on a ghostly appearance. Then they will choose facial color accents that do not provide enough color which will give them a drained appearance instead of one that is complimentary.

Some people might choose a foundation that is too dark. Instead of creating a natural look that blends into the color of their skin they are only creating a smoother skin surface that leaves a very noticeable line around the jawbone. When darker cosmetics are used as a base, the person has no choice but to layer on more color accents to define their cheekbones and eyelids. The overall appearance will not look natural and the time taken to apply these cosmetics will be wasted.

Some people will consult with a cosmetics consultant before they purchase any type of makeup. This consultant can take the time to show the person just what colors are complimentary and identify which skin tone colors are better choices over others that litter the countertop. A woman can save a lot of money by knowing which colors suit her skin tones and the woman will feel more confident when she goes shopping for cosmetics in the future.

Most women achieve a natural look by using cosmetics in moderation. They will create a platform for other cosmetics to lay on by choosing a compatible skin tone color. The overall effect of perfectly matched cosmetics can be very complimentary and allow the woman to be admired in the company of many people. The natural look in cosmetics is never overdone. It is far easier to add more cosmetics where they are needed than to remove cosmetics without ruining the cosmetics that are already in place.
