Makeup Application Tips
Concealer and Foundation Tips
Never use foundation or concealer on your eyelids – especially using them as a base. This will make your eye makeup crease and break apart.
If you want basic coverage of foundation, use your fingers to apply it. If you want a full blend or coverage, you can then use your makeup brush.
Apply powder at the shiniest points of your face and then dust it lightly on the regular points and everywhere.
Apply bronzer on your neck, chest and face to make your skin tone even. Look at the mirror properly to ensure those three body parts are in the same shade of colour.
Smile before you apply your blush. The apple of the cheek(the tip of the cheek) is where you shoulds start applying blush. Blend it bakcwards towards the top of your ears then downwards to your jawline.
Apply your brow pencil and brow powder to the upper region of your eyebrow. This will give you an instant face lift.
You don’t want your lipstick to be too defined at the top. You also want it to go way out to the end corners of your mouth. Press lipstick down as you apply it.
Start with a base eyeshadow that lacks shimmer. Ensure it matches the lightest skin shade on your face. Then apply it over your eyelid up to your eyebrow. The base shadow is to make sure darker shadows on your eyelid are blended perfectly.
