Tips for applying makeup you probably didn’t know:
Makeup application isn’t always the easiest task to master. It can be a tedious process if you aren’t really sure about what you are doing. You can create so much more from your makeup products than just what they are supposed to be used for. You just need to know the process. What if I told you that your eyeshadow palette can be used for a lot more than just adding colour to your eyelids? It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a pro at makeup application. Everyone can benefit from tips and hacks. It’s smart to get your money’s worth by using the same product in multiple ways.
Make Sure Your Primer Has The Same Base As Your Foundation – Primer Tip
Your primer and foundation should share the same base whether it’s water or oil. Otherwise, they will repel each other or just slide off your face, making it difficult to blend.
Make Fine Lines Around Your Eyes Vanish – Primer Tip
Dabbing a little amount of primer around your eyes dramatically minimizes the appearance of crow’s feet.
Avoid Fine fuzzy Facial Hair – Foundation Tip
Always apply your foundation using downward strokes. Most of us have a thin layer of hair on our face, and applying foundation in an upward stroke will make the hair strands stand out. Looking fresh and pink like a peach may be your goal, but highlighting your peach fuzz definitely shouldn’t be.
Always Choose The Correct Brush – Powder Tip
The result of any makeup product largely depends on the applicator, and this is especially true for powders. Always use the fluffiest brush you can find to put your powder on for best results.
Apply In A Triangular Fashion For Better Blending – Bronzer Tip
Though it’s a common practice to apply bronzer with a fluffy brush on the hollow of your cheeks, it is a better idea to draw two inverted triangles on your cheeks with a bronzer. Blend it out, and you will have the perfectly done bronzer that will give you perfectly chiseled features.
Feathery Strokes – Brow Tips
Always use light feathery strokes while filling out your eyebrows with a pencil. It will make them look more natural.
Instant Eye Lift – Highlighter Tip
For an instant lift in the eyes, use your highlighter just above the arch of your brows and blend it out.
Wearing Many Hats – Eyeshadow Tip
This is one of the most versatile soldiers of your makeup arsenal. Eyeshadow can be used as a blush, bronzer, highlighter and even to slightly alter the colour of your base makeup items and lip gloss.
Use Baby Powder For Thicker Lashes – Lash Tip
If you want your eyelashes to plump up, follow this technique. First, apply a coat of mascara and then dust some baby powder on it. Then, apply a second coat. It will instantly give your lashes dramatic volume.
Start From The Middle – Lip Tip
For a defined cupid’s bow, draw an ‘X’ where your cupid’s brow should be, and then apply the lipstick normally. Even if you do not plan to highlight your cupid’s bow, start applying the lipstick from the middle of your lips and move outwards for a flawless finish.
Make It Last Longer – Lip Tip
To make sure your pout looks perfect for the longest time, dab a little translucent powder onto your lips after you apply your lipstick. You can also use a colourless eyeshadow for the purpose. If you use a shimmery eyeshadow, it will also act as a highlighter and give your lips that extra dimension.
