This is what every woman hates: spending ten minutes on drawing one straight eye line and then one move spoils everything. But no time for panicking, these genius makeup tricks will fix everything in no time:
Never taste new foundations shades on your cheeks. The reason is simple: the skin of your face is not the same color as the rest of your body due to constant sun exposure. So if you try to match the foundation with the cheek, the shade will definitely not match your neck and chest, it is going to look weird and unnatural. Instead swipe three shades of foundations right below the jawline, blend them in and the shade that no longer is visible is which you have to choose.
First, apply foundation and only after you can add the concealer, but not vise versa.
Don’t apply foundation in upward strokes. This way you will grain those little hairs growing on the face and will make them more visible by raising up, instead of smoothing down. So, using a brush or a sponge pat the foundation for more airbrushed effect of your makeup.
If you want to cover both under-eye circles and pimples, don’t use the same concealer. The under eye one is usually lighter in shade than your skin, and by applying it on the pimple you will highlight it instead of hiding. Instead give preferences to creamy cover up which matches your skin to hide the pimples.
Concealer is not enough to cover pimple scars. Follow such a scheme: layer foundation, concealer, setting powder – these three items should totally cover the issue.
When applying concealer under the eyes, instead of the moon shape – always draw a triangle, it will bright up your entire eye area.
Even if you have an oily skin you still need to moisturize it, otherwise it will dry out and produce more oil. Instead try to use an apple cider vinegar and water mixture, or green tea as a toner before you apply a usual moisturizer.
If you have oily skin you don’t need to use moisturizer all over the face. On the T-zone use a mattifying gel moisturizer and cream everywhere else.
To fight oily complexion give preference to clear mattifier, it will remove the shininess.
Don’t be shy to remove oil from your face with a napkin, as oily T zone is not the best view.
If you have an oily skin don’t use the shimmer, as it will make your face shinier. Try mate bronzes, blushes and a concealer that is one tone lighter than your skin.
While applying bronze, don’t make it all over the face. Instead apply it in the shape of 3 starting from forehead, cheekbones and jawline.
Never forget to wash your brushes once a week, as they are collecting gems and bacteria. Wash them with a gentle face wash and rinse properly.
When it comes to eyebrows, make sure to focus the intensive on the arch and fade it out by the end.
Never pump up your mascara, instead scrape the end of it along the tube, pull it out by grabbing a good amount of mascara but wiping off the excesses at the same time.
Don’t pull the eyelid when applying the eyeliner, you will damage the gentle skin in the area. Just draw a rough line and with a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover sharp the edge.
If you apply black liner all over your eye including your waterline, it visually makes your eyes smaller than they are. Instead use black liner on top of your eye, while the bottom with a brown one.
Never apply lipstick without sharpening the edges, as the lipstick will bleed into natural creases of the skin. Instead make the line outside your lips with a concealer to pop your lips.
