5 Amazing Makeup Tips
To help you look amazing on your big night out!
Makeup can be a tricky monster to perfect, especially on a special occasion. These 5
simple tricks, will help you master your makeup and feel your best on your next big night
1. The Dot Method
Ever tried to wing your eyeliner and end up with asymetrical wings? We all have, but
with this simple trick you can easily make both eyes the same. Here’s how: Apply eye
liner to the lid as usual on both eyes stopping at the outer corner. When you’re ready to
do your wing, just simply make a dot on both sides where you want the wing to end.
Connect the dot to your already completed liner at the outer corner and your done. If you
need to perfect the line, my recommendation is to take a q-tip with a little eye makeup
remover on it and clean up the line. Dab the eye with a cotton ball to remove any makeup
remover left over and you’re done!
There are a ton of makeup fixing sprays on the market, but by far the most cost effective
is by Evian. You can get the 5 ox bottle for about $10, so it’s really the best bet. Spritz
your face before you start applying foundation for a healthy glow. Spritz again when
makeup is complete and this spray will help your makeup stay on longer, without drying!
It’s also just amazingly refreshing!
3. The Cupids Bow
Want the appearance of fuller lips? Well this trick will have your pout on point! After
lipstick or gloss has been applied to the lips take a small amout of any shimmery skin
toned eyeshadow (1 or 2 shades lighter than your skin) and apply to the cupids bow. You
can use a brush, your finger, or… finally a use for those small sponge appliquators that
come with your eyeshadows. The added highlight adds the appearance of fullness to the
lips, and you can’t beat that!
4. Soft Perfect Brows
Ever wonder what that thing was good for? Well we have 2 uses that will make this
inexpensive brow brush your best friend! Brows are important, they frame your face and
when they’re perfectly accentuated seem to complete a makeup look. But there is nothing
worse than hard, dark, obviously drawn on brows and with this trick your brows will
always be soft and perfect. The trick is to pencil your brows with a pencil 2 shades lighter
than your hair color (or a soft cold taupe if you’re extremely blond). Once you’re done
use the soft bristly end of this tool and work out the product. Brush the hairs back and
forth through the brow and up and down at the very front near your nose. Brows, check!
5. Unclumped Lashes
Do you want this look without any clumps and no falsies? It’s easy with any mascara and
a brow brush. The small comb side of the brush is made to separate lashes, but have you
ever applied mascara and tried to use the tool to unclump them? It’s a huge mess! The
trick is to use the tool to apply the mascara, not to fix it! Take your fave mascara and run
the brush over the comb side of the tool. Once it has product on it comb through your
lashes. Repeat a few times and you will have perfectly separated and elongated lashes. I
bet you never thought a brow brush would be so handy!
