4 Makeup Tricks that Make You Look More Beautiful (According to Science!)

Don’t we all have days when all we want is just to look prettier? Easy, it happens to us all. Wanting to look more attractive is something that has always been wrongly associated with the search for our better half, but we know that this is not always the case. Seeing us beautiful often gives us more confidence in ourselves, which helps in those occasions when we just need to feel better: a bad day at work, a test that has not gone as expected, a discussion with someone important to you, or a project that we had all your hopes on that seems that is going nowhere.

Well, it turns out that science has confirmed that there are some makeup tricks that can help you instantly.

Create Contrast Between Your Eyes And Your Skin

Remember that Khloé Kardashian trick to make your eyes look bigger? Well, it’s about that. In your case, having brighter skin and lighter eyes make it automatically look more attractive. This is explained in Psychology Today, stating that “a pronounced contrast between the eye area and the skin is a symbol of beauty.”

Give Your Lips Some Red

It is a golden rule. In psychological terms, red is associated with warmth, positive energy, and motivation. Several studies on the power of colors say that red is a color that moves us emotionally. And even scientists from the University of Manchester have discovered that red lips are much more attractive than any other color.

Make Your Eyes Look Bigger with a Point of Light

According to Professor Kang Lee of the University of Toronto, larger eyes are considered more attractive. Why? Because they make us look younger. Well, for that, you can choose your eyeliner, and just add some points of light. For example, if you draw a “V” with a white pencil in the area of the lacrimal (inner eye), then fade it a little, you will bring attention to your eyes and make them look bigger.

A Sunny Skin

A 2010 study, published in Dermatologic Surgery, showed that individuals with a little more tan seem more attractive. Be careful, because we are talking about “a little”, not the tan that comes after having spent a couple of weeks sunbathing on the beach. This trick has to do with the color you get when you spend a day in the field or outdoors. Therefore, it is best to regularly use a self tanner to even out your skin tone and achieve rich color on your face with a blush and bronzer.
