It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a pro at makeup, tips and hacks always come in handy. It is smart to get your money’s worth by using the same product in multiple ways. Here are some makeup tips that will make sure you look your best at all times.
Makeup Tips To Apply Primer
1. 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.
2. Make Crow’s Feet Disappear.
Dabbing a little amount of primer around your eyes dramatically minimizes the appearance of crow’s feet.
Makeup Tips For Applying Foundation
3. Right Application For Right Coverage.
While putting your foundation on, if you want sheer coverage, use your fingers. But, if you want a full coverage, use a foundation brush.
4. Avoid Peach Fuzz.
Always apply 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.
Makeup Tips For Applying Concealer
5. Create A Conical Shape.
Most of us are used to applying concealer in a semi-circular pattern under our eyes to reduce the appearance of the bags or puffiness. However, for best results, apply the concealer in 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.
6. DIY Color Correcting Palette
You probably, by now, have heard about the wonder called color correcting palette. These 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 discolouration, 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.
7. Know The Important Focal Points.
This hack is for those days when you are running late or just feeling too lazy to apply your concealer properly. Just dab on a little concealer, preferably with a brush, under your eyes, on the corners of your mouth, and near your nose, and you are good to go.
