You don’t need to be a professional to get amazing makeup looks. You just need a few best makeup tips & tricks that would make you look glam. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a pro, makeup tips always come in handy.
Below I have mentioned some makeup tips that have helped me a lot & that I still follow to make my makeup look on point.
Best Makeup Tips You Need to Know Right Now
1. Ensure your Primer Complements your Foundation.
Be it oil or water, your primer, and foundation should have the same base. Or else, they will drive away from each other, making it difficult to blend.
Let your primer dry and apply a little of your foundation. If the foundation looks smooth without cracks or cakey, then it’s a good match. In addition, choose the primer according to your skin type.
2. Apply Concealer in Triangular Shape
The best way to apply concealer is to draw a triangle shape with the base under your eye & point it towards your cheeks. This way it not only conceals dark circles but it also instantly makes your face look lifted. This is the best makeup tip to look refreshing.
3. Choose the Right Foundation
To choose the right foundation, you need to pick a foundation according to your skin type. Then do a patch test, the best place to test if a foundation is a right match for you or not is your neck or shoulders.
4. Blush Under Foundation
This is a clever trick of reversing the order of applying the product to get astonishing results. All you have to do is apply the blush first & then apply your foundation over it. The end result gives you a natural glow & makes your cheeks blush naturally.
5. Get that Perfect Wing
I struggle a lot while giving a perfect wing to my eyeliner. But, with this simple makeup tip that is the ‘tape method’, it just takes a few mins and you’re ready to show off those perfect winged eyeliner.
All you need to do is stick a scotch tape in an angular way on the sides of your eyes and let the ends guide you to achieve that killer winged eyeliner every single time.
6. Get Thicker Lashes
Every girl can easily get thicker eyelashes with this simple makeup tip. First, apply a single coat of mascara and then using a clear wand or cotton bud dust light baby powder on it. Then, apply a second coat. It will instantly give your lashes a volume & make it look dramatic.
7. Heat Your Eyelash Curler
Need more curly eyelashes? Just heat that curler! Heat the eyelash curler using a blow dryer or candle before curling your lashes. This makeup tip will instantly curl your lases. Most importantly, don’t overheat the eyelash curler or you’ll burn yourself.
8. Perfect Cupid Bow Lips
To make any lipstick look perfect on your lips, first define your lips’ cupid bow. Draw an ‘X’ where your cupid’s brow should be, and then apply the lipstick as usual. Even if you do not plan to highlight your cupid’s bow, start applying the lipstick from the middle of your lips and move outwards for a perfect finish.
9. Make Your Eyes Look Bigger
If you don’t already own a nude pencil, you’d need to buy one for this simple makeup tip! Instead of lining your waterline with dark eyeliner, use a nude pencil to create the illusion of a bigger eye. A white liner also works well if you are really fair-skinned.
10 Pop Out Your Eyeshadow
If you are stuck with an eyeshadow with less pigment or you want that extra pop of color, create a white base by filling in your eyelids with a white eyeliner pencil first. And, it’d work as magic for your eyes.
