Makeup is such a great tool to use to enhance, transform and communicate who you want to be in the world. If you're a beginner when it comes to makeup, it might seem a little intimidating. However, check out these really simple makeup tips to get started.
10 Easy Makeup Tips You Have to Try
1. Under Eye Concealer
If you’ve had a few long nights and didn’t get a lot of sleep, it’s not uncommon to develop undereye circles. If you don’t want to look like a raccoon, dab on a bit of concealer under the eyes. Make sure to use the right shade for your skin tone and tab lightly. The skin under the eye is delicate.
2. Ice Bath
Before you actually apply the makeup, fill a bowl with ice and place your face inside of the bowl. The cooling sensation will initially feel like a shock. However, once you continue to do it, it’ll get rid of any puffiness and wake your skin up to face makeup.
Many people purchase products like primer to help their makeup look smoother on the skin. Truthfully, a great practice involves exfoliating and moisturizing the skin. Don’t want too long after moisturizing to apply makeup. Once you’ve applied the makeup, it’ll have a dewy finish.
4. Eyebrow Threading
Your eyebrows frame your face. It doesn’t make much sense to have a flawless face and scary-looking brows. Go to a professional and get your brows threaded. This result can last a few weeks and it makes your morning makeup routine a little easier.
5. Lipstick Length
A nice, bold lipstick looks beautiful and creates a polished look. However, many lipsticks wear off after a couple of hours. To make lipsticks last longer, apply it with a lip brush.
6. Poppin’ Lashes
If the simple use of mascara isn’t doing the trick for you anymore, consider getting eyelash extensions. They’ll frame your eyes in a feminine way and they last a while as well. Plus, you won’t need to use any mascara.
If you want to look like you just came from a nice vacation, use a makeup brush to lightly add a fun highlight to the apples of your cheeks. It’s an instant way to look fresh when you’re on the go.
8. Blush Substitute
If you’ve run out of your favorite cream blush, use a rose-colored lipstick. It can give the same effect.
9. Lip Gloss
Always keep some tinted lip gloss within arm’s reach. If your lipstick wears off during the day and you don’t have it around, coat your lips with lip gloss for a fun and flirty look.
10. Makeup Towelettes
After a long day, the desire to stand up and wash off all that makeup can be exhausting. If you just can’t fathom walking to the sink, at least use some towelettes. Keep them at your bedside and make sure to thoroughly wipe all the makeup off.
