-Before you start foundation, use a moisturiser and it will blend so much better! Then powder with a translucent powder - these can be really cheap eg. so cheaper foundations last longer (fave, really cheap, also really cheap)
-Buy a beautyblender!! They will blend your foundation/concealer rly well and give a more flawless finish!! The Real Techniques version is a lot cheaper and I love it, buy it off iHerb for cheaper, or buy the Chi Chi brand sponge at Target!!
-Buy a makeup finishing spray and use it to make cheap eyeshadows more pigmented!! I like this Models Prefer one from Priceline (Aus drugstore), and it makes cheap shadows more vivid!
-Use white/silver/gold sparkly eye shadows as a highlighter, (like the colours on the left or this and matte brown shadows to fill in your brows!
-Rimmel foundations are often really good! This one is a dupe for Bourjois’ Healthy Glow and this one is so long lasting and full coverage that it could pass for high end
In an 1888 letter to his brother Theo, Vincent Van Gogh described one of his most iconic paintings, “The Bedroom”: “The walls are of a pale violet,” he wrote. “The floor—is of red tiles.” If that description strikes you as a little funny—‘aren’t those walls blue?’—you’re not alone.
More on how chemists are reviving Van Gogh’s authentic vision on Science Friday.
Ultimately, I think everybody has to realize that we all work on this because we like it and because we understand that we’re building a structure. And we each put in a little brick here and there, and if everybody puts in the right bricks and everybody works hard at it, you build a big structure of science, and it’s not so important who put the bricks in.
