Want to feel like you just walked off the cover of a fashion magazine? Looking slim and confident allows you to feel like you can conquer the world. Here are some easy tricks for makeup and fashion that will whittle the waist and give you that airbrushed look of perfection.

Pay Attention to Patterns and Color

Using colors and patterns to your advantage is an affordable and easy way to instantly look slimmer and more toned. Keep in mind that bright colors accentuate and draw the eye to the part of the body wearing them. Dark colors help to camouflage problem areas.

By dressing up your best features in bright colors and down-playing your less-than-flattering parts in dark tones, you can create the instant illusion of being slimmer.

This same technique can be used with patterns as well. Vertical stripes give you a thinner shape while horizontal stripes can exaggerate the width of a body area. Avoid horizontal stripes in areas where you do not want to look wider.

Try patterning small floral prints up top with solid or pinstripes on the bottom half of the body. This will create a long, lean line for your legs and a demure pattern up top to compliment the bust.

Makeup can work wonders when it comes to slenderizing the face and cheekbones, in particular. You can highlight the area you want attention drawn to or darken an area to make it look smaller.

Try contouring the sides of your face down to the chin with a liquid contouring foundation or powder bronzer in a slightly darker color than your regular skin tone to make your face look narrower. You can also apply a lighter color to your chin to give it length.

Accentuate your cheekbones by applying a light pink blush to the apples of your cheeks. Adding a shimmer highlight dusted to the top of your cheekbones will give your cheeks dimension and luminosity, drawing attention to your eyes.
