How can I tell if I need a makeunder?


Everyone has heard of the “makeover,” but do you know what a “makeunder” does for your look? It tones down your look. The question is: how do you know if you need a makeunder?

You might need one if your morning makeup routine takes you more than 45 minutes. Either you are just a perfectionist, or you are piling on way too many products. Go ahead and count how many makeup items you use in applying your makeup. For example, if you are applying five different eye shadow colors everyday, pair it down to two and see how different you look. Or, another look in need of a makeunder is if you are going with dark lipstick, heavy eye makeup, and a bright blush. Only one feature should be strong, and keep the rest neutral and soft. You might be surprised at the positive reaction you get from people when you use less makeup.
