Leg shaving and underarm waxing? Yeah, okay, those things must be done. But tweezing your face is a task that you didn’t sign up for. And you shouldn’t feel pressured to do it either. Having facial hair is common but it is crucial for you to feel comfortable with your facial hair. However, it all depends on how you choose to see it. While many prefer to shave it off, plenty choose to embrace it gracefully. There are some who don’t want to use a razor or tweezer, but still want to hide their facial hair. If you too are wondering how to hide facial hair with makeup, we’ve got just the right solution for you. Here are some simple yet effective steps to blend in your facial hair without added hassles and pains.
The first step in your makeup to hide facial hair is a primer. Primers help you prep your skin and create a smooth canvas for the rest of your face makeup. Try the Maybelline Fit Me Primer to fill your pores, create an even texture, and help your makeup last long.
Get an even complexion and smooth texture by blending the foundation onto your skin well. Brush it effectively on the areas of your face where there is visible hair, working in the direction of hair growth. Allow it to sit smoothly and apply a little extra to the hairy area of your face than usual. This will help to create sufficient coverage. You can go for the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation that comes in various shades and finishes to choose from.
Use a concealer to hide your facial hair and highlight your beautiful features. Go for the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and apply it on the high points of your face such as the bridge of your nose, top of your cheekbones and centre of your forehead. For a natural yet snatched look, apply the concealer using the facelifting technique. (You can now find your perfect concealer shade with the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool.)
Define and sculpt your face by contouring your jawline and cheekbones. This will make your face look slim and prevent your facial hair from creating any shadow on your face. Use the Maybelline V-Face Duo Contour Stick that is perfect for your daily makeup to hide facial hair.
Though you have applied a little extra foundation to hide your facial hair, you would not want your makeup to look cakey or oily. Blur your pores and control shine, oil and sweat by using the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder. This compact powder will give you a smooth and flawless complexion and keep your base makeup in place.
Draw the attention away from your facial hair by colouring your cheeks. Give your skin a naturally flushed look by trying peach or rose shades from the Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush collection. Apply it well on the apples of your cheeks to make your skin look fresh and poppy.
Amp up your glamour quotient and add a dazzling shine and glow to your skin with the Maybelline Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter. Begin by applying it on your cheekbones in an upward motion, and then, apply it to the bridge and tip of your nose and on your cupid’s bow.
