How To Apply Makeup Perfectly #makeup_tips


Have you ever wondered how to get that perfect look with makeup? Knowing a few tricks can really help!

The first step of all: Apply a moisturizer with SPF to help concealer glide on smoothly. Then use concealer only where you need it, like on undereye circles and blemishes.

A Touch of Base: To get perfectly even skin the speedy way, use a foundation stick. It’s easy and gives you plenty precise application. We like Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick.

Reassess and Perfect! If a pesky zit or mark is still poking through, go back and hide it with an extra layer of concealer. Use the same kind as in step one, or try a cover-up that contains salicylic acid, like Almay Clear Complexion Concealer.

Now Blush! Forget shading and sculpting cheekbones with a brush and powder, and try a cream blush instead for that glow-from-within effect. Apply to the apples of your cheeks, then blend the color up toward your temples with your fingers.

Apply Shimmery Eye Base: For pro-looking eye makeup in no time, apply a wash of sheer, shimmery cream shadow from lash lines to brow bones using your pointer finger. Try Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Copper Canyon.

Make ‘Em Pop: Next, use bronze and gold cream shadows (both are in that same Revlon palette) to give eyes more depth. Apply the bronze shade in your creases with a flat shadow brush for more control, and use your fingers to smudge it down over the lids avoiding the brow bones.

Add Some Definition: For more intensity, rim your upper lash lines with a brown liner pencil and smudge it upward with your shadow brush. Then set with the same powder eyeshadow used in the previous step. Finish off with two coats of mascara, like Smashbox Hyperlash Mascara, on top and bottom focusing on the outer lashes with the top of the wand.

Get Lush-Looking Lips: If your lips are dry or at all chapped, gently buff with a damp washcloth and apply lip balm. Let it sink in well, and blot with a tissue if it feels slippery. Using a strawberry-color lipstick, like Maybelline New York ColorSensational Lipstick in Very Cherry, straight from the tube, apply it to the center of your mouth.
