Makeup tricks

Whether you’re a veteran who executes a killer smoky eye on the regular or a beginner who struggles with foundation application, sometimes it can feel impossible to keep up with all the latest makeup tips and tricks. Straight from the mouths of beauty experts, here are the top makeup tricks everyone should know.

Tired of your foundation looking cakey and unnatural? To get fresh-faced, flawless skin, put foundation all over your face, then use a tissue to wipe it off of your cheeks. This makes it easier to layer your blush on without it looking fake. It brings life back to your cheeks and realness back to your skin.

Mastering a multi-use product will not only give you a pretty look, it will also help save you time and money on your makeup routine. Everyone should have a great fuchsia cheek color that they can pop on their lips and cheeks. Whether you’re fair or have a darker skin tone, pink works on everyone. Choose a creamy, opaque pink with a bit of gold in it to brighten the face. Mix it with some moisturizer and blend on your cheeks.

Dark circles can make you look tired. To get a wide-awake look, prepare the under eye area with a hydrating, fast-absorbing eye cream, which will allow products to go on smoothly. Apply a corrector to cover the purple or green tones in the skin, then follow with a concealer that is one to two shades lighter than your foundation. Finally, set the under-eye area with a pale yellow powder to help it last longer and prevent creasing.

There’s nothing more feminine than a bold red pout. A hot, red lip is an essential part of every girl’s bag of tricks. Start with a very sharp lip liner, in the same color as your chosen lipstick. As you apply, smile a little so the lips are tight and the liner goes on easier. Fill in the lips using the side of the liner, then take a lip brush and apply the lipstick for precision. If you make a mistake, take a little concealer on a small brush and ‘erase’ it.

Liquid liner is one of the trickiest products to master, but once you learn the right way to do it, you can create chic eye makeup looks in a flash. An easy way to test out liquid liner is to first use a taupe eyeliner pencil to lightly trace a line just above your upper lashline. This trick lets you make sure the lines are even and accurate before next applying the liquid liner directly on top of the ‘practice’ line.

You don’t have to be born with killer cheekbones when you can just fake it with this sculpting tip: Sweep a sheer shimmer powder along the top of your cheekbones and just under your temples. Next, pucker up to find the hollows of your cheeks. Dust a deep nude blush in the sunken area just under the cheekbone. Smile and apply a peachy blush using the cinnamon bun method—use circular motions, starting at the apple of the cheek and slowly make larger circles with the brush. Instant cheekbones.
