Red-dipped fingers look like strawberries

Red-dipped fingers look like strawberries - Jeffree Star

I love the dark humour of Jefree Stars lyrics and they make perfect makeup looks.  There are key aspects of makeup looks which anyone can take away and use for them self.  Learning the basics is key, and once you've understood these you can go on and create simple everyday looks, or go over the top like me!  The easiest way of understanding the concept of the basics is to just think how would you draw a human face with pencil.  You would need to to think where the face would need shadow, and where the face needs highlights.  The best part about makeup is that you can choose where you want these, and how much to want these to be on show, or how much to hide them.  Use glitter and shimmer products to highlight and matt to contour.  The differences in daylight won't be completely obvious, but if someone is going to use flash photography on your face, such as night out, the effects you've created with you makeup will be obvious.

Most of us have been guilty to using bronzer all over our face on a night out, and yes you may look nice and tanned in person, but the particles in that bronzer are going to light up your face like the 4th of july when a flash meets it.  And what's more important, drunk people looking at your face, or those pictures that will be in cyberspace forever?
