You might think that the title of this post is a bit extreme, but hear me out. Makeup really can change a person’s life. You don’t need to cover yourself in it and look like a totally different person either. A dab of concealer here and there, a tiny bit of tinted lip stain, and you could feel so much better about presenting yourself to the world. These makeup tips could very well change your life:
Use a Primer
If you don’t already use a primer, you’re missing out! Primer helps to blur imperfections, and it holds your makeup in place for longer. Some people even choose to wear a good primer by itself. Most people apply it just before their foundation. There are all different kinds with different consistencies to choose from, so it depends on what suits you. You may need to try a few out before you find one you love.
Curl Your Lashes
Curling your lashes takes just seconds, and it makes such a huge difference to your face and eyes. You can use a regular eyelash curler or a heated one, whichever you prefer. You could even heat a regular eyelash curler up with a hairdryer to make the curl last longer! When you apply mascara, your eyes will look so much more awake and your lashes will look lovely and fluttery.
Use White Eyeliner
White eyeliner can be used on the eyes to open them up further, making them look even bigger. You can apply it in the waterline of your eyes to create a Bambi type look. You can even spread it over the lid before shadow to make the color pop.
Wet Your Foundation Sponge
Wetting your foundation sponge and then rinsing it out so it’s just damp can help you to apply your foundation to get a better finish. You’ll find that it makes you look more radiant. It’ll still give you the required amount of coverage, without looking caked on. There are special sponges out there that are specifically made for this, so try them out!
Highlight and Contour
Highlighting and contouring is great if you don’t have any cheekbones. You can make some! You need to make sure you blend, blend and blend some more, but you can create a really nice, natural look with practice.
Use Makeup Suited to Your Skin/Eye/Hair Colour
The best makeup for you is going to be suited to your skin, eye, and hair color. Using the wrong colors will make you look washed out rather than radiant. You should also pay attention to your skin type. You can learn more on sites like makeupbychelsea.net.
Use Makeup to Suit Your Face Shape
Know your face shape and use makeup to suit it, if you can. Round faces for example, will benefit from using a different method of contouring, and even different shaped eyelashes to make their faces look their best.
I hope you love these makeup tips just as much as me!
