Breakup To Makeup

Posted on

Breakups are always sad, yet sometimes, makeup can add a spark of pride to carry us through the tough times. Whether it’s a breakup with an old flame, a best friend, or a family member, these makeup tips can help us heal. For example, post-breakup makeup looks do not have to be overly dramatic or feature bright colors. Instead, they can emphasize natural looks using shimmering and matte shades. In addition, a little bit of self-care can go a long way. Whether visiting a good friend, getting a massage, or just giving yourself some love, it is important to remember to take care of yourself.

Matte Color

Find a matte color that applies smoothly to the skin, such as mauve, berry, or pink. By utilizing a matte color, you will be able to bring focus to your eyes or lips without needing bright colors. You could even use a nice neutral color to enhance your natural features. When choosing a matte color, make sure to select one that is free of shimmer and sparkle.

The Smoky Eye

Adding a layer of smoky eye makeup can create a look that is perfect for a night out. Start by adding darker shades of shadow to the corners of your lids. Then, start blending the darkest shade into the center by moving the brush in a windshield wiper movement. To finish the smoky eye look, dust an illuminating highlighter to the inner corners of the eyes, to brighten them up.

Contouring the Cheeks

To achieve a straight-from-the-runway makeup look, contouring is a must. To contour the cheeks, start by placing your brush at the apple of the cheeks and sweep in an upward motion. This upward motion will give the face a slimmer look. After the initial brush movement, apply three different shades of highlighting and lowlighting to define the cheekbones. This will add an instant lift to the face and create a more youthful look.

Whether you decide to embark on a glamorous journey into the post-breakup makeup world or stay on the natural side, take time to invest in yourself and feel beautiful!
