Purpose of Make-Up
Hello everyone, I’m back to submit more information on make-up. Have been busy recently therefore not submitting any information lately but I’ll try my very best to post more information on make-up and skincare on my article.
Alright today I shall share with you the Purposes of make-up & Cosmetics used in make-up.
The purpose of applying make-up is to enhance the beauty of the face by bringing out good features and hiding poor ones. Make-up application is an art. It requires practice and a fundamental knowledge of ;
· The structure of the face
· The action of colours and their relationships to one another
· The principles of optical illusions
COSMETICS USED IN MAKE-UP
1. Foundation – Used as a base for the make-up and as a concealer and highlighter. It is available in cream, liquid, semi-solid, cake and stick form.
2. Face Powder – Used to help the make-up to set. It also gives the face a dull, matte finish. This cosmetic is available in the form of a very fine powder or compressed cake. The powdered form is ideal for professional make-up. The compressed powder is usually available in compacts.
3. Eye shadow – Used to add colour to the eye. It is available in cream, liquid powder, and crayon form.
4. Eyebrow colour – Used to draw in fine lines in the eyebrow area. Eyebrow colour is available in pencil and compressed powder form. Compressed powder is applied with a small brush.
5. Mascara – Used to add colour to the eyelashes. It is available in cake, cream and liquid form. The cake and cream types are applied with a brush. Liquid mascara comes in a tube.
6. Rouge or blusher – Used to give the cheeks a soft, warm glow. Rouges come in cream, dry, liquid and brush-on form.
7. Lipstick & Lip gloss – Used on lips. Lip colour is available in stick and cream form. Lip-liner pencils are used to outline the lips.
