5 ways to feel confident in your makeup

If you are a lover of makeup, or just enjoy dabbling here and there, here are 5 sure-fire ways to feel amazing in your makeup!

1. Wear red lipstick

I promise, you will feel like an absolute boss wearing it. I am a self confessed nude lipstick lover and recently delved into the world of red lipstick. I always feel quite daring and adventurous wearing a totally different colour that made me stand out from everyone, but the red also makes me feel sassy af.

2. Try something new with your makeup

Do something that you’ve never done before, or you’ve been too shy to. Use colour, do a wing, try contouring – just explore! Makeup comes off! If it goes wrong, who cares? But if it goes right? Maybe it will become your new norm.

3. Get glowy

There is nothing better than having seriously glowy skin. Apply a little more highlighter starting at the top of the cheek bone and bringing it down onto the apple of the cheek.

My favourite highlighter for a serious glow is the Mary Lou Manizer by The Balm.

4. Become a bronzed goddess

When I’m feeling a little low on confidence, something that always makes me feel better about my appearance is bronzer. Not only does it accentuate certain features on your face (cheek bones, nose, jaw line), but it also gives you a healthy tan without damaging your skin! Instead of just applying your bronzed in a straight line under your cheek bones, remember to bronze the other points on your face where the sun would hit – your forehead, your temples, your nose (for me it’s easy, any where where there are freckles!). This will sculpt your face really nicely and make you look lovely and healthy!

5. Embrace yourself without makeup

As beautiful as you feel with makeup, it’s important that you know how amazing you are without it too. It can be a little hard sometimes, but wearing makeup every day is not a necessary step to feeling worthy and good about yourself. You are more than your appearance, so remember that!
