1. Always do the eyes first
Who wouldn’t want a flawless skin and a healthy glow? Let’s be honest ladies it’s your foundation mostly. All
foundation! We know how hard it is to look flawless after all the eye-shadow fallout
even with a thick viel of your translucent powder! It shows! And when you
finally decide to keep covering it with foundation,it gets cakey. Eww!The best we can do to
avoid all this mess is to do your eyes first, on bare skin you’d never have to worry
about the fallout, you can get as messy as you want and let the makeup wipe do the rest.
2. Let the concealer set before blending
We all dread those under eye dark circles and discoloration on the face
that even the best of the concealers can’t completely hide. Not all of us have the time to
color correct the skin every time we apply the makeup. The best way to most efficiently
apply the concealer for the best coverage is to leave the concealer on for a while before you start blending it.
3. Use concealer to clean out the sloppy edges
Applying scotch tape on the corner of the eyes is surely a nice
trick to get those sharp edges but it doesn’t always turn out the way that we want, the
best alternative to a scotch tape trick is to clean out the edges with a makeup wipe, half
of the work will be done by just one swipe and then use the concealer to define the edges
and not only would this sharpen the edges per your need but also, it would help the eye
4. Contour your lips for an instant pout
Thanks to Kylie Jenner, we have all been wanting a pretty pout.
But lip fillers aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, so, an amazing trick to get an instant pout is to contour your lips.
Apply a dark contour shade under the centre of the lower lip, highlight the outer edges of
the lips and the cupid’s bow and VOILA! You have an instant pout.
5. Use contour shades for fool proof ombre lips.
Ombre lips are the recent trend that gives depth to the makeup and
helps achieve a fuller lip and we have all been wanting to get the lip ombre like those
instagram pictures. Blending two different colors on the lips can be a tricky job. The
easiest way to achieve ombre lips is to darken the lipstick around the corner with a
contour powder and to apply a highlighting powder over the lipstick at the very centre.
This would give a very soft and beautiful ombre effect for the lips.
