If you’re like me and absolutely obsessed with make up and how to my yourself look attractive, than I suggest you read on.
- Lotion is a must have
Before you put on any makeup product, apply lotion to your face. If you don’t put lotion on and then apply foundation or concealer, look closely in a mirror (specifically at the nose area) and dry skin is more visible.
It’s also a good way to hydrate your skin. However, a perfume scented lotion is not recommended to put on your face.
This is because the fragranced lotion would usually make your face drier after a while.
Ladies, tape can be a major help when applying make up.
Need help winging your liner? Apply tape to the angle you want your wing, draw a straight line, fill in the spaces, and then BOOM; winged liner at its finest.
Also, tape is good for doing your nails for either designs or keeping nail polish off of your skin when painting your nails.
If you mess up on your make up, there is no need to take it all off anymore. Just wipe the messed up part off with a Q-Tip.
These also work for fallen eye shadow by picking up the shadow without messing up your foundation or other face make up.
- Make up for people who wear glasses
For people who have to wear glasses everyday, finding a makeup technique that suits you can be difficult. However, there is a way you can wear glasses and still look chic.
Try make up colors that look most natural, but not exactly the same color as your skin. I have noticed that the best make up looks for glasses are the natural beauty looks, like, brown and gold smokey eyes or single colored neutral eye shadows.
Then put on some lip gloss, eyeliner, mascara, and you’re set!
There are plenty of other make up tips, however, these are the four that I live by.
