Once you understand the various kinds of makeup, you will become more confident on choosing your wedding makeup style.
Mascara is applied to the lashes to make them look longer, darker, thicker and fuller. Mascara is either in liquid or cream form and uses a small applicator wand. Invented in 19th century by Eugene Rimmel, a French perfumer, it is initially a mixture of petroleum jelly and coal dust. It has undergone several modifications and at present, is usually made from wax thickeners, color and water.
Eyeliner is applied on the eyelids where the lashes grow to define the eyes. It takes the form of a pencil except that the tip is very soft. It is available in powder, wax and liquid forms.
Rouge, popularly known as blush or blusher, puts extra color to the cheekbones for a rosier and youthful appearance. It is a mixture of talcum powder and color. A soft brush is used to apply this powder form. The cream blush is applied with a soft sponge.
Complimentary makeup products refer to those used with other makeup items. This includes:
• concealer to hide dark eye circle, blemishes and other imperfection;
• face powder is used over the foundation to have a matte finish;
• lip liner is applied on the lip edges to define lips and to avoid the lipstick from going beyond the lip line.
