It is important to take care of your face and hair, but it is also important to take care of your body. You may be spending hundreds of pounds in buying makeup products such as skin care creams, toners and moisturisers. It is time to understand how to choose the right body makeup products, and learn how to use them.
What is body makeup?
Have you ever felt that you do not have the confidence to wear daring outfits during summers? If yes, then it may be because of stretch marks, freckles or scars on your tummy, legs and arms. Body makeup aims at masking discoloured areas as mentioned earlier.
Why do you need body makeup?
You may wonder why you need body makeup when there are all kinds of foundations and concealers available in the markets. The reason is
simple - foundation makeup is primarily designed to cover imperfections on the facial skin. As foundations lack high level of pigments, they fail to cover imperfections like freckles and stretch marks on the legs and tummy. Body makeup is excellent for hot and humid regions, as in such climatic conditions, normal makeup washes away with sweat. In other words, body makeup is waterproof, and lasts long. Body makeup is apt for beachside parties and any occasion under the sun.
How to apply body makeup?
Different women have different skin tones or shades. Therefore, you should pick up a shade that matches with your skin tone.
- First, dab a little amount of body makeup on the desired area, and blend it well.
- Then set the makeup over the area using body talc. If you end up applying more than the required quantity, you can use a makeup brush to remove the excess makeup.
Choosing the right brand
Body makeup products are available under different cosmetics brands such as the Bodyshop, Bliss, Clinique, Lancome, Lorac, Urban Decay and Fusion Beauty. Online beauty shops have a wide range of body makeup products. You can visit a few stores online and choose your favourite brand of body makeup products. Do not forget to check the water resistance or strength of body makeup products. Some products provide even sixteen hours of colour wear.
