Seven Tips to make your Makeup Better

1.  Take Care of your Skin

Makeup only looks so good on top of rough, red, irritated skin… so soften and heal your skin every day!  Proper cleansing and moisturizing are key for a flawless face.  Apply moisturizer and eye cream immediately before makeup application for the best results!  -Skincare Tags- 

2. Groom your Brows

Eyebrows are the frames to your eyes - for an instant eye lift and to make your face look more polished, trim excess hair and fill wherever needed!  To find the perfect brow shape for your face, use a pencil or brush against your nose.  Vertically against the ball of your nose for the proper place to begin your brow, against your nostril through the pupil for the arch, and along the outer corner for the tail end.  - Eyebrow Tags -

3.  Line Your Lips

Kardashian-lips are only achieved with an impeccable lip line!  You can cheat fuller lips easily with the right lip lining techniques.  Pick a shade just slightly darker than your natural lips, and create your ideal shape before you put your lipstick on.  Even without lip color, a nude lip liner will make your lips look like you have done injections… even when you haven’t!  - Lip Liner Tags - 

4.  Blend your Shadow

There are only two rules to applying makeup, and those are 1) Layer   and 2) Blend   Blend that eyeshadow as if your life depends upon it!  Harsh lines and separation between colors signifies an amateur, and we all know you don’t want to look like an amateur.  Get a nice fluffy blending brush and soften that crease, soften that under eye, soften that transition… soften everything!  The better your blur, the more insta-famous you’ll look!  - Eyeshadow Tags - 

5.  Buff your Complexion

Flawless foundation is one of the most impotent factors to achieving a perfect makeup look.  How to we achieve a flawless complexion?  The tools you use have the biggest impact.  A large, dense buffing brush or a high quality makeup sponge are best for this step.  Once you’ve applied your foundation and concealer, go in with a great tool and buff away any streak, line, or layer you’ve created.  You’ll maintain the perfect coverage while creating a skin-like finish.  - Foundation Tags - 

6.  Set Everything

Nothing ruins a makeup look as quick as creasing does!  To prevent oily lines and smudges on your face, set your entire look from beginning to end.  Pick translucent powder for your undereye concealer and around your nostrils, and a setting spray for the rest of your skin.  Setting not only prevents extra moisture and migraine of makeup, but helps it to look more like skin.  - Setting Powder Tags -

7.  Take your Time

Rushing through makeup application will never get you a perfect result.  Take the extra ten minutes and blend, layer, and laquer your makeup to perfection.  A really beautiful look usually takes more than five minutes, so don’t get discouraged if you’re trying to rush and the end result isn’t what you want.  We all have a makeup artist inside us just waiting to come out!
