“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.”
By Dominique James
It’s important to remember that outward appearance shouldn’t be the only definition of beauty. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with celebrating glamour and having a little fun putting on your lipstick.
Being a lifelong makeup connoisseur, I’ve had my fun putting on blush and lipstick since the ripe old age of three. Digging through my grandmother’s makeup drawer was one of my favorite pastimes. Now, at 27, I’ve learned a few tips and tricks to makeup application.
How to Make Your Blush Last Longer
Cream Blush! I LOVE this stuff! To give your face that extra colorful glow, grab your favorite shade in a cream-based blush and apply to cheekbones for a dewy look. To make your color last all day, take a matching powder blush and lightly dust over the already-applied cream blush. Whenever you use a liquid or a cream makeup; always set it with a powder. This will seal the deal and keep your makeup from sliding off.
Having trouble finding a cream blush you enjoy? NYX is a great, inexpensive brand with a beautiful range in colors. Grab your favorite shade and celebrate beauty! (NYX can be found at Fresno Ulta or nyxcosmetics.com)
