1. Keep Your Face Hydrated At All Times
Looking into what your skin requires will help you achieve a flawless, natural appearance even when using makeup. For example, determine if you have frequent dark spots appearing after applying a product. Is your skin dry or oily, or do you have mixed skin texture? Also, keeping your skin moisturized and hydrated helps solve most skin problems, so drink a lot of water and fluids and use a moisturizer each time you wash your face.
2. Choose A Concealer That Is Compatible To Your Skin Tone
Foundation shouldn’t lighten the color of your skin, it should just smooth it out. To make sure you have got the proper share, use a little amount of the tester on the back of your palms. If it blends with your skin tone perfectly and disappears, it is the right tone for you. So if you have yellow undertones, avoid pink tones and go for yellowish tones instead.
3. Never Use Foundation To Mask Blemishes
A common mistake we all end up making is to try and hide blemishes behind concealers. This works the other way and brings more attention to your pimples and acne marks. Even if you need to hide skin imperfections, redness, and other skin problems on the face, use a makeup product specially designed for this purpose. Make sure that it complements your skin tone. The best time to use concealer is after foundation, and it may be blended out with your fingertips.
4. Conceal The Area Beneath Your Eyes
Use a concealer in a pink to peach tone to diminish the appearance of dark circles beneath your eyes. Then, apply your regular eye concealer. It should encompass everything from the region adjacent to the teardrop duct to the outer eye’s inner corner. Apply it with very delicate strokes. Finally, you may finish things off with a bit of powder, which ought to have yellow undertones.
5. Let A Specialist Shape Your Eyebrow
To achieve well-shaped eyebrows, it’s essential to seek the expertise of a professional. Whether plucking, shaping, waxing, or threading, it is best to rely on a professional rather than on your own hands. Once you get them shaped right, you can pluck the extra hairs that seem unruly and maintain the correct shape.
6. Use Your Finger As An Alternative To An Eyelash Curler
This is our favorite makeup hack and probably will be yours too. Wait a few moments after applying mascara so that it can dry. Then gently raise them with your index finger. Just keep them there for a second or two and then release them. This will give you many more satisfying results than using an eyelash curler.
7. Use Your Fingers To Blend Your Eyeliner
Our fingertips are the most delicate instruments at our disposal for applying makeup. Thus we advise using them. To apply eyeliner, begin at the top and outline the region near your lashes. Then, repeat so at the bottom, but use a thinner line. Finally, it’s time to smear the line with your fingertips. There’s no harm in giving it a few tries to see if you can find the combination that suits you best. Once you have a smokey finish, you can apply a line of eyeliner to define the shape.
Now for the most crucial bit of advice – makeup or no makeup, you will radiate a gorgeous glow if you are confident in your skin. Make sure you wear the kind of makeup you are comfortable in, not what commercials and social media coax you to try. Also, before indulging in expensive makeup products, it is essential to take care of your skin and make sure your skin is healthy and glowing from within.
