Every girl’s face is a masterpiece on a canvas. And this masterpiece is exhibited every time a girl goes out of the house. No girl ever wants to leave the house without makeup on. Whether there is an errand to run or a wedding party to go to, makeup will always be a default accessory of every girl’s look. Even a no-makeup look still requires makeup. Astounding, isn’t it?
So, do you need to be an expert on makeup to pull off the desired look? Well, not really. Even professional make-up artists have their own tips and tricks when applying makeup, like a nifty box with makeup storage drawers. Wanna know how they seem to achieve a perfect look without breaking a sweat? Here are some tips and tricks you can do to get started.
1. Define Your Eyebrow
They say that even when you don’t wear any makeup (not even lipstick, blush, or eyeshadow) if you have a pair of well-defined and well-shaped eyebrows, you should be good to go. Eyebrows define a girl’s face. But they’re really no one-size-fits all approach when shaping eyebrows. It always depends on your unique facial shape and attributes. The key here is that you know how to identify your face shape whether you got an oval-shaped face, long, round, square, heart, or diamond face shape. Each of them has a perfect pair of eyebrows to match.
You can pluck your eyebrows to get your desired shape, or you can just keep it as is and just add a little bit of darkness to show some character. Other women would also go with an eyebrow tattoo so they can achieve a perfect set of brows as early as waking up. Whichever way you want to go, as long as you get a lovely pair of eyebrows that match your face, your masterpiece is already 50% done.
2. Pop Your Eyeshadow
If you’re in the mood of wearing something vibrant and gleaming kind of color of eyeshadow, then there’s no better way to emphasize it without making it appear dull than applying a white base first. Grab your white eyeliner and apply it on your entire lid before applying your choice of eyeshadow. This should give you glowing eye effects while the eyeshadow colors pop.
3. Revive Dried Mascara
This is probably one of the common problems you face with mascara – it dries out so fast that it creates unattractive clumpy lashes when used. You definitely want to have naturally long and lush eyelashes that you can’t afford to have a clumpy mascara thus, leading you to buy a new one instead. But before you even decide of spending another dollar for your makeup kit, do this very simple trick first.
Pour eye drops or contact lens solution in the mascara tube. Five to ten drops of it would be fine, just enough to rewet the mascara. Then, close the wand and give it a shake. You can now use your mascara as good as new to coat your eyelashes. You may also follow this trick should your mascara dries out again and reuse it like it’s new.
4. Seal the Deal
The best trick to keep your lipstick long lasting is to cover your lips with powder with a tissue after applying lipstick. This step is better done as one of your finishing touches just before you go and face the limelight. Even after long hours of partying or just an overnight catch-up session with friends, this trick will help make your lips remain kissable, even without retouch.
These are just the basics of all the tips and tricks in the world of makeup. There are still hundreds of tips and tricks out there that will help every girl achieve a perfect makeup routine that looks natural yet stunning. However, it’s always wise to master the basics first before moving on to the advanced stage.
