We could watch professional makeup artists and vloggers doing their thing all day long, but for some reason, most women feel that they cannot do what the pros and vloggers do. Does it come with experience, or is it just magic? We are revealing 5 hacks that you should try to achieve your perfect look.
1. Triangle cover up
Contrary to how most women apply concealer, the best way is to apply it in a triangular formation with the base of the triangle directly under your lash line and the point toward the bottom of your cheek. This will create the illusion that your face is lifted, since the brightest point is the most intense under your eye.
2. Oily Nose Hack
This is an issue that most women struggle with. If you have an oily nose, use eyeshadow primer on your nose, before spraying with a setting spray. After this, just stipple your foundation on it. This will help it to last all day. Make sure to use a good primer that won’t cause you to breakout
3. Use powder to make lipstick last
The key is to layer. Start by lining and filling in your lips with a lip liner that matches your lipstick. Then, apply a light layer of lipstick with a lip brush. Hold a tissue over your mouth, blot the colour, and dust a light layer of translucent powder over top. (Translucent powder, even though it is supposed to be clear, still has a white tint to it that can alter your lip shade). Repeat the process a few times to ensure that the colour won’t budge.
4. Eyeshadow placement for larger eyes
If you have smaller eyes, eyeshadow placement is key in faking a wide-eyed look. Don’t use dark shades on the lid, as they clos off the eyes and make them look even smaller. Instead, use a lighter colour in the inner corner and a nude pencil on the inner rims of your eyes.
5. Fuller lips
Use a darker lip pencil to outline your lips, then fill the center of your lips with a much lighter pencil. Then put on your lipstick. This will create a multi-dimensional lip look that makes your lips appear fuller.
