Different Makeup Looks

It is easy to create different makeup looks by varying the style and application of your makeup.  Usually it is the context or occasion that determines the look or style of makeup you apply.

The different makeup looks I have described has a description of both the eye and lip treatment.  When it come too the eyes, a “defined” eye means a hard edge liquid liner. A “soft” eye uses a eye liner pencil, possibly smudged.

The lips are also described as either defined or soft. Lip liner using a very fine point creates a “defined” lip and lipstick is applied within the sharp lip line, whereas a “soft” lip could be created using a stain or a gloss without a definite edge.

Now, whether it be weekday corporate, night time glamour or weekend casual, the application and the products used will be always balanced against what suits your features and the characteristics of your skin.
