Sunglasses can complete the absolute look of a person. But the fame your sunglasses must be in proportion to your face size. Oversized sunglasses might look extremely odd and trashy. Choose sunglasses that feel comfortable, these sunglasses will overwhelm your face.
Overlaying Of Powder-
Do not over do the powder on your face while makeup. It’s a translucent powder but it doesn’t mean it’s invisible. Apply a small amount of powder to set your base and do not make your skin look trashy. If you cover the makeup with powder it can look more heavy.
Choose the balance color for your outfit. Color does play an important role in our life. Mismatched Color would give you the worst look. Color makes the difference since it makes life not only meaningful but also beautiful. So choose your color wisely.No matter what patterns you’re wearing, the key is to understand the style.
