Here are 10 simple makeup tips for every girl!
Never forget to prime – Does your makeup move around a lot, especially on your T-zone? This is because the makeup doesn’t have a firm base to sit on. Priming your skin is one of the best and simple makeup tips you will find while doing your makeup. Always prime your skin before you can do before putting on your makeup. It sets a smooth base for your makeup and evens out your skin tone for a flawless canvas. It also hydrates the skin, while at the same time reducing oil and shine.
Use less products – The more products you use, more chances of you looking caked up. As professional makeup artists, one of our best and simple makeup tips is – less is more. Unless you are a professional and know how to lightly use products to layer them right, try and use less products. Use a concealer instead of a full foundation when you have a low key day. A quality concealer can help cover any areas that need concealing. The concealer should match your skin tone and be set with a loose powder. One of the simple makeup tips that we always give girls is that dab concealer on the spots you want to cover instead of brushing it away. It will work much better than wiping it, which will take away all your hard work. Blend with your finger and start off light. You can add more if you need.
Mascara it right – One of the simple makeup tips that we can give anyone is to always have mascara on you. A simple swipe of mascara can open up your eyes and change your look. Remember to curl your eyelashes before you apply mascara. Wiggle the mascara in at the base of the lash and sweep outward and upward. The trick to sexy natural lashes is to get the thickness into the base of the lashes and taper them naturally to the ends, as opposed to chunky, thick ends. If you get clumps, use an old cleaned mascara wand to run through your lashes and get them out.
Say goodbye to dark circles – When you are in your 20’s, sleep is a luxury. Between your partying and crazy schedules, shut eye is a problem. Nothing will say fresh like actual sleep; these simple makeup tips will help you achieve a fake fresh look without sleep. Dark circles can make you look tired. To get a wide-awake look, prepare the under eye area with a hydrating, fast-absorbing eye cream, which will allow products to go on smoothly. Apply a corrector to cover the purple or green tones in the skin, and then follow with a concealer that is one to two shades lighter than your foundation. Finally, set the under-eye area with a pale yellow powder to help it last longer and prevent creasing.
Liner for the win – For anyone who is just starting out in the world of makeup, getting the eye liner right is difficult. We have done a whole blog
For that natural pout – Before applying any lipstick, it’s always best to exfoliate your lips. This takes care of all the dead skin and also creates a smooth base for any lip product to glide on. Use a thick cold cream and a soft toothbrush to exfoliate your lips if you don’t want to invest in any lip scrub.
Hello bold brows – Are you like us, who love creating a brow look? A bold brow is an easy way to create an attention-grabbing makeup look. Simply comb your brows with a spoolie brush or clean mascara wand to see how they lay naturally. Then use a soft, slightly waxy brow pencil, shape the brow by using the thinner side of the tip. Then, take the flatter angle of the pencil and fill in the brow using short strokes that look similar to hair. If you are heading out to a party, finish by blending a shimmery highlighter just below the brow bone to add brightness and lift!
Fake those cheekbones – We love how stunning Kareena Kapoor or even Blake Lively’s cheekbones look on the red carpet! But you don’t have to be born with killer cheekbones when you can just fake it with these simple makeup tips. Sweep a sheer shimmer powder along the top of your cheekbones and just under your temples. Then suck your cheeks in to find the hollows of your cheeks. Dust a deep nude blush in the sunken area just under the cheekbone. Smile and apply a peachy blush using the circular motions, starting at the apple of the cheek and slowly make larger circles with the brush. Instant cheekbones!
Use the right tools – Makeup when applied with the right makeup tools gives you a drastically different look than the one applied with wrong tools. Your makeup brushes and sponges need not be expensive; all they need to be is of a good quality and clean.
Hydrate your skin – Last but one of the most simple makeup tips that we truly believe in is hydrating your skin. Not only from the inside, but also from the outside. A good moisturizer, SPF, night cream and an eye cream goes a long way, literally for years, to good skin. Always remember to take your makeup off before you sleep to let your skin breathe.
