Corrective Makeup Tricks
Covering or camouflaging flaws on the face with make up is called corrective make-up. It is to accentuate a person's best feature and minimizing a person's unflattering flaws or faults. First of all before starting the make-up, the person's flaws and features have to be summed up and scrutinized and then the client or person has to be told which part of her body and face need touching up. It has to be done with tack and a lot of consideration. So, emphasize the good features, minimize the imbalanced or not so good features, by shadowing or shading with the right combination of cosmetics.
Highlighting: To get a certain area of a face highlighted, a lighter shade of foundation is used, known as highlighting. That focuses attention on that particular area.
Shading: A darker shade of foundation is applied to an area of the face where it should attract the least attention. That is called shading.
Blending: In this two shades of foundations are used and it is applied towards the required direction. No indication of two foundation shades being used should be visible. You have to be cautious while blending.
