Makeup Tips You Have To Know

Take a look at your makeup arsenal and think of all the masterpieces you can create with it. What if we tell you that your eyeshadow palette can be used for a lot more than just adding color to the eyelids? Or, let you in on some tricks that would make sure that your cat eyes and wings are on fleek every single time? 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 50 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.

Face Powder Application Tips
8. Know The Correct Function.
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.
9. Choose The Right Brush.
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.

Makeup Tips To Apply Blush


10. Blush Under Foundation.
This is also 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.
11. Use A Tissue Paper For Blotting.
Instead of blotting your blush with a powder, use a tissue paper. Press it lightly over the blush after application and finish off with your makeup sponge or beauty blender for that perfect flush of color on your cheeks.
12. Be Careful With Shimmery Blushes.
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.

Makeup Tips For Brows

13. Feathery Strokes.
Always use light feathery strokes while filling out your eyebrows with a pencil. It will make them look more natural.
14. Instant Eye Lift.
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.

Makeup Tips To Apply Eyeliner


15. Dots And Dashes To The Rescue.
It might sound lame to a few, but there are people (like me) for whom drawing a straight line on paper is a task difficult enough, let alone exhibit such mastery on eyes with an eyeliner . Fret not, just draw small dots or dashes with your eyeliner on the lashline and join them. Perfectly done eyeliner in a jiffy.
16. Scotch Tape Method.
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.
17.Go Natural With Tightlining.
Try tightlining for the perfect no makeup look. Instead of putting the eyeliner on the lashline, apply it beneath the line. Make sure you use a waterproof variant for this one.
18.Use A Shadow To Lock It In.
Use an eyeshadow of the same shade as the eyeliner to set the liner in place.

Lip Liner And Lipstick Tips


19.Start From The Middle.
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.
20.Practice Overlining With Caution.
If you want your lips to appear slightly bigger, you can consider overlining your lips, that is, putting your lipliner outside your lips. However, be careful while doing this. If you go overboard, it will look too obvious and exceptionally tacky. For best results, apply along the outer margins of your lips.
21.Make It Last Longer.
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.
22.Apply The Lip Liner After Lipstick.
I know it sounds a little odd, but according to some experts, if you put lipstick first and then go for the lipliner, you will know exactly how to line . Also, when they start fading, they will fade together.
23.The Thumb Rule.
Getting lipstick on your teeth is surely not a look you were aiming for, but it happens more often than we care to admit. In order to avoid it, put your thumb inside your lips, pucker up, and pull the thumb out.
