With some tips and tricks, you do not have to be a professional to have a perfect makeup!
It may take time to fully understand the shape of his face, the colors that highlight us or the number of products to use.
But I think you can find your morning routine! You do not have to spend hours preparing yourself. Once you have the know-how, you will see how easy it is to highlight your assets and hide your imperfections. Here are 20 makeup tips and tricks that you would have liked to know earlier!
1. The plastic spoon
Use a plastic spoon to easily apply the mascara to your lower lashes. You will avoid putting on hard skin.
2. Blush application
To properly apply your blush, start by determining the shape of your face. The Blush not only makes you look pretty but also defines the contours of your cheeks.
The way you apply it allows you to beautify the features of your face, or soften them.
3. Scotch for the eyes
This “unconventional” beauty aid will guide you when applying your eye makeup, especially if you opt for a bold look!
This will also help you to have the same look for both eyes.
4. Corrector and dark circles
Many of us simply put the corrector on the lower part of the eyes. But, to completely remove dark circles, it is best to highlight the crease under the eye, then apply a darker shade on the rest of the lower eyelid.
5. Light play
Makeup is, after all, just a play of light. By highlighting certain areas, you can easily create the illusion of a more intense and deep look.
Clear shades (whites, creams, and pearls) should be applied at the inside corners, in the middle of the eyelid, and just below the bone of the tip of the outer eyelid.
Apply them first, then move on to your darker shades.
6. Add a few drops of saline solution to your mascara tube
If your mascara has not reached its expiry date, but becomes a little pasty, put a few drops of saline to get a better texture.
7. Exfoliate your lips
Use a baby toothbrush to exfoliate your lips. To really get the job done, use a homemade recipe by mixing sugar, honey and coconut oil.
Another, easier, but less effective solution is to use a lip balm or petroleum jelly.
8. Put on your eyeshadow
Putting your eyeshadow and eyeliner is just as important as choosing colors.
Depending on how you put them, you can create the illusion that you want. With careful placement, you can give the illusion that your eyes are wider, closer, more prominent, deeper, and so on.
Determine the shape of the eyes that you have, then accentuate them accordingly.
9. Enlarge your look
If you do not already have a nude pencil, buy one! Use a nude pencil gives the illusion of a bigger look. If you have very light skin, a white pencil works as well.
10. Brighten up your eyeshadow
Have you ever bought an eyeshadow that, once applied, seems rather dull? The key to giving it some shine is to use a white base. Use a white eyeliner and cover your entire eyelid before applying eyeshadow.
