Make Sure Your Primer Complements Your Foundation. Whether oil or water, your primer, and foundation should share the same base; otherwise, they will repel each other or just slide off your face, making it difficult to blend.
Make sure getting the correct color for your shade. While putting your foundation on, could either use a brush, blending sponge or even a puff. Applying foundation and glide upwards and work towards it will do.
The purpose of the application of concealer is to cover up blemishes and also dark eye circles and eye bags. However, for best results, n a conical pattern under the eyes and extend it to almost where your nose ends. It not only does a better job at concealing because it is easy to blend, but it also helps in contouring the sides of your nose.
Color Correcting Palette
Color correcting concealers of various hues are used to cancel out flaws on your face. For example, a green concealer is used for canceling out any redness, lavender for yellow-toned discoloration, peach for bruises or blue-toned under-eye circles, etc. But if you suddenly find yourself without your color correction palette or just want to save money, just mix an eyeshadow of the color you want your concealer to be with your normal concealer – and voila! You have your smart and cheap color corrector concealer palette.
There are mainly two types of face powder – loose powder and pressed powder, and both come in dewy and matte finishes. It is important to know which one to use for what purpose. Loose powder is basically used to set the makeup in place and make it long-lasting. Though it comes in both tinted and translucent forms, it is best to use the colorless translucent one for setting the makeup as it will not disturb the color of your foundation and concealer. Pressed powder, however, is best suited for touch-ups on the go. Also, a dewy finish gives a glowing appearance to the skin, and a matte one provides a porcelain look with fine textures. Using the fluffiest brush you can find to put your powder on for best results.
A clever way of reversing the order of applying the product to get smashing results. All you have to do is apply the blush first and then apply the foundation over it. The end result looks like you are glowing naturally from within. Alternatively, you would apply the foundation first followed by the blusher too. It is tricky to pull off a shimmery blush perfectly. In fact, it is a good idea to skip shimmery blushes altogether if you have large pores, pimples or other symptoms of troubled skin.
Apply In A Triangular Fashion For Better Blending. 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.
Always use light feathery strokes while filling out your eyebrows with a pencil. It will make them look more natural. For an instant lift in the eyes, use your highlighter just above the arch of your brows and blend it out. It will not only define your eyebrows perfectly but also have a dramatic impact on the appearance of your entire face.
Eyeshadow can be used as a blush, bronzer, highlighter and even to slightly alter the color of your base makeup items. If you are stuck with an eyeshadow with less pigment or you want that extra pop of color, create a white base by filling in your eyelids with a white eyeliner pencil first. Instead of using an eyeliner pen, take an angular brush and use eyeshadow instead of eyeliner on your upper lash line. It will provide a soft and natural look.
Just draw small dots or dashes with your eyeliner on the lashline and join them. Perfectly done eyeliner in a jiffy. For a perfect wing, use the scotch tape method. Just stick a scotch tape in an angular fashion on the sides of your eyes and let the ends guide you to achieve that killer winged eyeliner every single time. You can also use a spoon, business card, debit card or basically anything with a straight edge as a guide. Use an eyeshadow of the same shade as the eyeliner to set the liner in place.
To prevent mascara from clumping, wipe off the excess product on a tissue paper before every application. 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.
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.
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 colorless eyeshadow for the purpose. If you use a shimmery eyeshadow, it will also act as a highlighter and give your lips that extra dimension.
