There are some companies that give out makeup samples for free. You can try them out and who knows? When you are convinced of the makeup’s staying power and easy application, you may want to get the actual product. You may have a few ideas of the makeup that you would like to use for a long time. Or at least, until you need to replace them.

You have to remember that cameras have the ability to accentuate wrinkles even though they are not actually that visible in person. They can make people look bigger than they are actually are. Makeup that looks shiny will normally look washed out in videos. You need to choose the makeup that will bring out your natural skin color and will make you look really great.

These are some of the things that you can do to have more natural-looking makeup in videos:

  •  You need to use a shade of eyebrow pencil that is lighter than your natural skin color in order to help define your natural eyebrows more. It will also be easier to create the desired lines that will make your eyebrows look more natural. If you would choose a dark-colored eyebrow pencil, it might make your eyebrows look like one big blob.
  •  Learn the art of applying your lipstick with a brush. There are some people who have more natural-looking lips on camera because they have managed to apply their lipstick properly. Applying lipstick with a brush will reduce the possibility of having a lipstick that is applied too heavily. Lipstick that is too thick will have the tendency to make anyone look older on video.
  •  You truly need to use a concealer to make sure that your problem areas will not stand out in pictures. You should just use a minimum amount of concealer and make sure that you will blend properly.
  •  It is important that you will blend your foundation properly because the light from the camera will always bounce off your face. If there are uneven areas, this will be obvious through your pictures. In order to blend properly, you need to have a beauty blender or a concealer brush.
  •  If you are going to use eyeshadow, you can use three shades to make your eyes appear larger in photos. The first shade will be used to highlight and they will be placed at the corner of the eyes. The darker shade will be placed near the fold of the eyelids and the neutral shade will be placed on your eyelids.

If you would follow all of these tips, you can have makeup that will look amazing not only on videos but also in pictures.
