Applying make-up can be painstaking and cumbersome at times for a few of us. It gets even harder when you have to do it for yourself! You need not worry if your plan it accordingly. The following tips and steps will help you to get the perfect makeover!
How to do Self Makeup
Here I share with you 10 Self makeup tips which you can follow for best results.
Tip #1: Sharp eye and lip liners
To get super sharp liners, you have to freeze them in a refrigerator. Place your liners in refrigerator in the morning if you are planning to go for an evening party. Sharp the liners before applying the makeup and you get the best results ever.
Tip # 2: Always scrub
When you don’t scrub your face, the dry and dead skin makes your face look dull and dark. So scrubbing is necessary for a perfect look.
- Just mix baking soda and water in equal quantities and stir it well.
- After mixing, apply it on your face and rub it into your skin gently for up to 3 to 4 minutes and then wash it with clean water.
Tip #3: A Foundation is all you need
For getting a fair skin tone, we use “Foundation” as the base layer of makeup. But when done poorly, it looks too cakey and uneven. So it is essential that you apply this perfectly so that it appears invisible. Don’t do the mistake of blending the foundation down the neck and out on the ears. This will make you look like a clown.
Tip #4: Get Set Blush
Most of us think that Blush is a powdered makeup which adds colour to cheeks, but it does more than this. It shadows and contours the cheekbones. If badly applied, blush gives some sort of a 80s look and that too not in a god way.
Tip #5: The Eyeconic Eyes
My sister jokes about certain women saying their eyes look like “shutter doors” as they apply lots of eye shadow. The biggest mistake is that they mess up their makeup with an overdose of eyeliner, using it on the top and bottom lash line till it shrinks the eye. If you have some bold and very dark eyeliners, use them for night parties, this gives you a pretty look. These shades are not meant for the day at all!
Tip # 6: Be Smart with Mascara
Everyone likes waterproof mascara, I too love it. But I struggle too much while removing it. So I always apply a first coat with regular mascara, then above this I apply the waterproof one. Using this way, the waterproof mascara locks onto the other mascara instead of eye lashes and it is easy to remove.
Tip #7: Slides smoothly
If you want make your lips appear stunningly fresh, then scrub them so that the lip colour slides smoothly without caking. Take a toothbrush and rub it over your lips to take off the damaged skin, you can also use a hard cloth towel for this. (Don’t do it many times in a day, it will torture your lips)
Tip #8: Stunning Lips
Lip shade in bright colours like pink and orange draw more attention to your lips and looks tacky. A shiny gloss gives a bold effect so you can use them for dim-light occasions like holidays and night parties. While applying lipstick, you must choose a bit darker shade than natural colour of your lips, this gives realistic effect to your lip.
Tip # 9: Luminous is perfect
Everyone has their own natural face shadow. For looking fairer, you should brighten the natural shadow. It is very easy, stand in front of a mirror and smile – you will see the dark areas under your bottom lip or at the corners of your eyes. To cover these areas, just take an eye shadow with a white shade and blend it in with your fingers.
Tip #10: Soft touch
When blending or applying foundation, we usually use makeup brushes. But the skin of your face is delicate, so the prefect tool for applying makeup will be your ring finger. It applies makeup boldly and gives a perfect look, and also saves the time.
