7 Pro Makeup Artist Secrets You Need To Know
#1 Prep your skin
Skin preparation is essential for glowing skin. Start with a light moisturiser and then foundation and use as little powder as possible, so your skin keeps that healthy glow.
#2 Concealer tip
Apply your concealer low, on top of the cheeks, not right under the eyes. In other words, don’t try to cover the dark circle itself but let the light reflect upwards. This is a secret of many celebrities. Give it a try. The effect is magical.
#3 Keep your makeup in place
We work long hours, so, our eye shadow and foundation have to stay put. The secret is a primer. Most foundations give luminescence to your face but a good primer keeps everything in place.
#4 Use eye drops for a fresh look
To keep a fresh look all day, start your makeup routine by using eye drops. You can relieve redness or irritation on the skin by applying eye drops with a cotton ball on dry skin before your makeup routine.
#5 Use a Beauty Blender to apply foundation
My favourite! This amazing tool allows you to access every contour of your face. It is meant to be used damp, for a flawless application and ensuring that your makeup never looks heavy.
#6 Apply your blush correctly
Rather than concentrating it on the apple of your cheek, brush it up along the cheekbone, using the center of your eye as a guide for your starting point. The upward sweep also gives the illusion of pulling your face upward, slimming it.
The shape and placement of your eyeliner is just as important as the colour. If your eyes are closer set, the thickest, boldest part of the liner should be at the outer corner to widen them. When your eyes are spaced further apart, the thickest part of your eyeliner should be concentrated at the inner corner. Try an eyeliner that lets you control how thick or thin you can paint on your liner angle.
