How much makeup is “too much” makeup?

E40BEEE8023E1E82C9A26AEDC30245C3Alright let’s take a look at this model over here…

Am I the only one who feels this look is way too drag queen?

Heres why:

You have to play up one thing – make it your central focus. Her lips are beautiful but the heavy eye makeup just makes them look clownly. The eyeshadow and false lashes would have looked great with a nude lipstick or sheer lip color.

To put it plainly, her makeup is overwhelming!

Remember ladies…pick ONE thing to accentuate: your eyes or lips. Skin is just as important. Yes you need a good base but again you must balance your blush, bronzer, or highlighter based on the emphasis you are putting on your lips or eyes!

Dark makeup ages a woman.
Her dark brown lips and berry bronzer makes her look older than she looks like 2012!
Her hair looks frizzy and unruly and she has extra weight on her as well.
The center part is changed to a more flattering off-centered part.
Her natural black hair color suits her skin better than the dark brown she had earlier on.
Silky straight hair looks better than curly hair on her face.
She has had some plastic surgery…this we can’t really copy.
She wears more vibrant colors that add life to her face.
She doesn’t use much liner at the bottom anymore.
Her eyebrows are moreĀ  defined making her look more youthful.
Her lips look fuller with gloss and a lighter pink.
The waist clinching clothes make her look slimmer.
V-necks elongate her neck.
More definition on her upper lashes open up her eyes.

Hello Lovelies!

Welcome to my blog!
We are all beautiful and unique individuals inside, but sometimes when things get gloomy, we can begin to think otherwise. Maybe it’s from all the imagery we are exposed through by the media or we have gradually begun to judge ourselves more harshly than our mothers did, but we all go through periods of low self-esteem every now and then. No one is perfect and that’s what makes us different from one another. A lot of us sometimes just need a little positive reinforcement to help us keep going when we’re down and I found the world of fashion as a wonderful outlet that provides just that.

I’m far from an expert when it comes to beauty but using the motto “sharing is caring,” I think we can all help one another out by sharing our experiences and tips. Join me on my fashion journey as I discover and ramble about everything from makeup, skincare, hygiene, hair care, hairstyling, DIYs, outfits, latest trends, tips and techniques, product reviews, hair coloring, cultural fashion, and much much more!

Much love xoxo
