Unlocking The Expressive Power Of Your Face
If you want to make sure that your makeup and cosmetic game are on point, then your best bet is to start with a goal. If you, like many others, want to make an impression, then its your expressions and the movement of your face that is best at building connections, establishing empathy, and winning others over. But what can you do to help make your face look more expressive and lively?
Smile with confidence
Your smile is going to be one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal, so you want to make sure that you’re not letting it lose its luster. The right shades of lipstick can do a lot to highlight the emotive power of your lips, but it’s the teeth that are going to be the most noticeable thing of all. If you want to make sure your smile is dazzling, not darkening, then you may want to consider making use of at-home whitening kits.
Make use of the eyes
Your mouth might be one of the most expressive parts of the face, but so are your eyes. Smiles reach them just as much, and they are called the windows to the soul for a reason. Aside from making sure that your eyes look nice and rested with the right whitening drops, you can highlight their impact with the right additions. You don’t need a lot of mascara or eyeshadow to make your eyes more attention-catching, but options like 22mm mink lashes can really highlight their power. Fluttering your lashes is going to have a much better effect if you have much bigger, natural-looking lashes.
Worry less about fine lines
Moving your face? In some anti-aging obsessed circles, that might be considered a grand crime worthy of punishment. It is true that being expressive will cause more of what we call “lines of activity” such as crow’s feet and smile lines. However, with the use of the right products like anti-wrinkle treatment oil, you can make sure that your skin retains more of the collagen and similar components that keep it firmer and more likely to spring right back into place. Don’t let your fear of a fine line or two get in the way of using what you got now.
Practice looking “comfortable”
Looking like you’re on edge can make your face seem more rigid. Indeed, you might be physically tensing without noticing it. Practice softening your features by, for instance, letting your eyes look a little more relaxed (without closing your eyelids any) or by practicing a resting smile on your face (just a little tilt makes a big difference.) You can also help your face look a little softer and more relaxed with options like a light, subtle lipstick that can help you blur those lip lines. The “soft focus” look makes your face look a lot less stiff.
The tips above can help you make your face look a little more expressive, which can build that emotional connection that enhances your charm. Practicing expressions in front of the mirror doesn’t hurt, either.
