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 the refrigerator in the morning if you are planning to go for an evening party. Sharpen the liners before applying the makeup and you’ll 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.

You can also use rose water instead of regular water to make your skin blemish-free and clear.

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 make the mistake of not blending the foundation down the neck and out on the ears. This could make you look like a clown.

Quick Tip
Always prepare your skin before applying foundation by applying a moisturizer and a primer first. These help make your skin look smooth and poreless.

Tip #4: Get Set Blush

Most of us think that Blush is a powdered makeup which adds color to the cheeks, but it does more than this. It shadows and contours the cheekbones. If badly applied, blush gives us some sort of an 80s look and not in a good 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 time occasions, this gives you a pretty look. These shades are not meant for use during the day!

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 to make your lips appear stunningly fresh, then scrub them so that the lip color slides smoothly without caking. Use 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 shades in bright colors like pink and orange draw more attention to your lips and can look 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 the natural color of your lips, this gives a 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 perfect tool for applying makeup will be your ring finger. It applies makeup boldly and gives a perfect look, and also saves time.
