Corrective makeup involves these core elements: Highlighting or emphasizing desirable features; Shadowing or minimizing undesirable features; Blending the two, so that the makeup appears seamlessHere is a list of the tools that are useed (some of these are additional to your standard makeup bag): Dark, medium, and light coloured lip liners; Various shades and coloured foundations; Dark and light shades of concealers; Eye shadows and eye lining pencils that are in light to dark colours, including grays and browns; Powder that is translucent; Brushes, sponges, and applicatorsAngled tip tweezers; Various brushes of different sizes. In this section, we present a range of corrective makeup goals and the techniques that are used to achieve them: Round eyes: extend the shadow past the outer corners of the eyes, to lengthen them and make them look more oblong. This technique will also make the eyes look bigger. Eyeliner can also be used to obtain the same effect. You will apply the eyeliner along the top eyelash, from the middle of the eye, to the outer corner. Pass the line of the eye slightly. Now apply the liner to the lower lash line, from the middle, to the outer edge, to meet the other line. Now fill in the triangle shape in-between the lines. This will create a longer looking eye and, in essence, make it look bigger. Close-set eyes: apply lighter coloured eye shadow on the lids of the eyes, near the nose and darker coloured eye shadow near the edges of the lids. This will make the eyes look farther apart. Deep set eyes: light and reflective colours can be applied into the creases and darker colours can be used sparingly. Prominent eyes: makes it harder to notice the eyes, by blending a medium shadow over the prominent part of the eyelid and then blending it up towards the eye brow. Round and Square faces: use a darker foundation along the outer edges of the temples and blend it. Then blend along the jawline and cheekbones. A lighter foundation should then be used in the center, from the chin to the forehead. Narrow face: a light foundation used along the outer edges of the cheekbones can be used. Wide jaw: use a darker coloured foundation, under the cheekbones and on the jawline. Receding chin: highlight the chin with a lighter coloured foundation. Double chin: Apply a darker foundation to the double chin, under the jawline. When the eyebrows have high arches, it can make the face look narrower. This is a perfect technique for people with a round face. If the face is already narrow, it is not a good idea to have highly arched brows. This will elongate the face even more. You can remove the extra hair on the top of the arch and fill in underneath the arch. This technique will also make a low forehead look taller. For your clients whose eyes appear farther apart, you can make the distance between the brows wider and then extend the brow out a bit more. Thinner upper lip: line the upper lip with a lip liner. Make sure that you stay on the outermost section of the lip, without extending too far. Fill in with lip color. Thinner bottom lip: line the lower lip with a lip liner. Make sure that you stay on the outermost section of the lip and don’t extend too far. Fill in with lip color. Thin lips: line both the lower and upper lips, with a lip liner. Be sure to stay on the outer section and don’t extend too far. Fill in with a lip color that is light and not glossy or frosty.
