Customizing Your Own Palette
- Look for neutral shades, when starting the palette.
- Start with bronzers and blushes. Bronzers are good for people who tend to like a more nude type of everyday look. Easy to maintain, easy to carry, and easy to rock of course. For the blushes, go for something you use a lot. Someone might want those rosy pink cheeks, or some might on the other hand go for a more cherry color.
- Use bronzers that have shimmers to get that glow back.
- Chose a highlight that goes well with the blush and bronzers you have selected.
- Starting for eye shadows put a good two or three transition shades. Preferably brown to nude. A darker shade, a lighter shade and medium colored shade.
- Add a few darker metallic shades which can become your go-to best friend in times of need.
- Go for a few satin metallic lighter shades, which you can put on your lid or just on the inner corner of your eye. Totally depends on you.
- Finally, add some bright pop colors for days when you feel like shining bright.
Essential Must-Haves In Your Dream Palette
Using An Eye Shadow Palette
Make sure your eye shadow palette has medium, dark, and lighter natural shades. That is a must-have in any case.
Select shades that compliment your skin tone and go well with it.
Applying The Eye Shadow
- Use the lightest shade all over your lid, to make it look neutral. Give it a fresher look and just match your skin tone.
- Use a medium tone shadow on the visible area of the lid.
- A darker shade can be used near your lash line.
Using A Contour Palette
One can easily contour their face with two different shades of either a concealer, a highlighter; one can use a bronzer or even a foundation. A contour kit on the other hand will provide you with all the essential shades needed. Always make sure that you use a shade that is darker than your skin tone to add a bit of shadow to your cheekbones. Use a lighter shade compared to your skin on area that will naturally reflect light, your brow bone, or the top part of your cheekbones. In the end, apply a tint of rose color on your cheeks and blend everything together
Using A Color Correcting Palette
A good color correcting palette tends to include different shades of concealer to blend in colors which are on the opposite side of the color scale. For instance
- Green can neutralize red
- Peach can neutralize dark circles
- Use yellow when dealing with discoloration.
Use this color correcting concealer under the foundation you have applied. This way the bright colors will not be visible once you have you the makeup on.
Do’s And Don’ts While Applying Makeup
For A Perfect Complexion
- Do match your foundation shade always to the ski on your neck. Usually, the skin on our neck tends to be of a different shade than or face. Be careful!
- Under-eye concealer should not be too white. Do not go for two shades lighter than your foundation or your actual skin tone if you don’t use a foundation.
- Use a light moisturizer under your eye to prevent it from creasing throughout the day.
- Do not apply the blush on your cheekbones while smiling. Once you bring your face to its normal state, the blush tends to fall lower than your cheekbone making it look weird.
- Moisturize your skin well before applying the makeup; apply a skin serum or a toner to bring up that glow game.
For Perfect Eyes
- Fill your brows with a shade that is lighter for a more subtle and natural look rather than going for a shade darker.

- Do not use the same eyeliner for your upper lash and lower lash. For your lower lash, go for a shade lighter than that of the upper one.

For Perfect Eyes

- Do not use dark-colored lipsticks on thin lips. These colors tend to make the lips appear even thinner than usual. Instead of dark shades, the bright and fresh colors. This will make your lip appear more pleasant and appealing.
- Apply concealer. Always apply a concealer on the edge of your lips to give it a proper shape and outline. The apple a highlighter on the upper pout, finally apply the lip color. It will be more reflective and shiny.
