Makeup tips

Makeup has existed for centuries. In ancient times, women used lead powder to conceal skin imperfections. Finally, in the thirties, the prototype of today's foundation was created. Creamy-textured powder quickly became a staple cosmetic for almost every woman. Innovations in its formulation over the years have turned it into a second skin, dispelling myths that foundations clog pores and stifle the face.

Foundations serve as the base for all other colored makeup products. In addition to pigments, they contain special light-reactive dyes, volatile silicone particles for even distribution, and valuable skincare ingredients that complement and support the action of creams. Foundations protect the skin from ultraviolet rays, freezing temperatures, air pollution, and include sunscreens and free radical scavenging substances.

Choosing the right foundation depends primarily on your budget, followed by skin type (see Skincare), and finally, skin color and tone.

You can accurately assess the quality and shade of a foundation only after applying it to your face. It's best to take a tester and, at home in natural light, apply a drop of foundation on the jawline and neck, near the ear. Don't overdo the amount, as a thick layer distorts the result. Blend it very carefully. The perfect foundation for you should be invisible, and its color should match your skin tone.

There are two dominant color tones among the foundations on the market: warm and cool, corresponding to warm and cool beauty types (see Beauty Type). Dominant pigments in warm-toned foundations include yellow, peach, warm beige, and brown, while cool-toned ones include pink, gray, cool beige, and sandy beige.

In today's cosmetic market, we have a vast array of products to choose from, varying in consistency and properties. These include creams with powder, liquid foundations, cream foundations, and compact foundations. Everything depends on preferences and expectations. A properly chosen foundation is invisible, leaving the skin velvety and free of discolorations.

The selection of a foundation depends on the type of skin. The color should be at most half a shade lighter or darker than the skin. Equally important is the careful application of the product.

The opinion that foundation harms the skin by clogging pores and hindering breathing is unfounded!

The time spent on makeup can vary significantly depending on personal preferences, skills, and the desired makeup effect. There is no specific amount of time that would be suitable for everyone, but there are some guidelines that can help plan the time for makeup.

Daily makeup: If you prefer a subtle and natural everyday makeup, it usually takes from 10 to 15 minutes in the morning. This makeup typically includes foundation, concealer, eyeshadows, eyeliner, mascara, blush, lip liner, and lipstick.

Evening or special occasion makeup: If you plan a more elaborate makeup for the evening, a party, or a special occasion, it can take from 30 minutes to an hour or longer. This makeup may include additional steps, such as face contouring, elaborate eye makeup, false eyelashes, and more advanced techniques.

Artistic or theatrical makeup: If you are interested in artistic or theatrical makeup, the time needed for its execution can be much longer, even several hours. This type of makeup requires advanced skills and precision.

Remember that the amount of time needed for makeup can be shortened or extended depending on practice. The more you practice, the faster you will be able to achieve the intended effect. Additionally, planning and organization are good ideas to save time. Prepare all products and tools before starting makeup, as it can significantly speed up the process.

It is also worth adding that makeup is an art and a form of entertainment, so you don't always have to rush. The time spent on makeup can be relaxing and enjoyable, so you don't always have to hurry to finish it. It is also an excellent opportunity to experiment with different techniques and colors.

Foundation not only beautifies but also nourishes, moisturizes, protects the skin from dust, dirt, sun, covers skin imperfections, both in terms of color and surface, and is well-tolerated.

Makeup can be adapted to different occasions and situations. For everyday wear, it's worth opting for natural makeup, while for evenings or special occasions, you can go for a more daring look. Remember to take care of proper skincare and remove makeup before sleep to keep the skin healthy.

In conclusion, makeup is not only a tool for covering imperfections but also an art of self-expression and highlighting beauty. It's an individual choice for every woman that can impact her well-being and self-confidence. Experiment, play with colors and shapes, explore new trends, and, most importantly, enjoy the process of creating beautiful makeup!
