5 Simple Makeup Tricks

Are you trying hard to achieve the flawless makeup finish but not able to achieve the desired results even after giving your best shot with makeup!!! Sharing some simple makeup tricks to fix makeup flaws and makes them less noticeable.

5 Simple Makeup Tricks

1) Start with a Clean Base -Before starting with makeup, go for a nice home made fruit pack massage or exfoliate for your facial skin followed with a light moisturizer. It will prepare your skin for the next step and you will achieve better results.

2) Moisturization is the Key – Moisturize under eye area with a nice hydrating, non-sticky under eye cream. The smoothened under eye area will allow the concealers to blend smoothly giving even application

3) Flawless Foundation – After blending in the foundation with fingers sprinkle some water on the Flat top Kabuki brush and move it in small circular motions all over your face. This will give you an Airbrush finish but distributing the foundation evenly and remove any excess accumulated on facial contours. You can use a clean, damp sponge too and pat it (do not swipe) over the face for similar flawless finish

5) Match-O-Mania -If you skin color is very dark, ensure that your lip color matches your eye makeup. Do not make the mistakes of clashing your eye color with lipstick.

Simple tips i follow prior makeup..
1] Run a ice cube before applying moisturizer..This trick will lower the sweating rate so that your makeup stays on for much longer period.
2] Primer foundation n setting powder according to your skin type [this we all know]
3] Applying a coat of brown eye shadow over the kajal keeps the kajal from bleeding
4]Heat the eyelash curler for 15 seconds under a blow dryer, then crimp the lashes at the base. The heat helps the lashes stay curly for long.
5]To ensure your lipstick stays on for a long time without cracking, apply a coat of concealer to the lips & apply the lipstick over it
6]To tone down a big nose & make it look sleeker, apply some bronzer on the sides of the nose . This elongates the nose & makes it look sharp.
7]Bronzers n Blushes goes according to ones liking but to accentuate your cheek bones, apply a darker shade of blush to the contour of the cheeks , then use a lighter shade to highlight the cheek bone
8]To make your nail paint last longer, apply the base before you colour your nails, so that the nail paint adheres to the base coat & lasts longer
9] Finish off your makeup with a setting spray to seal everything in place.

I have a question for you Poo..according to you…which foundation brush do u prefer using ? a flat one or a Kabuki brush ? or do u like working with ur fingers to get that smooth even look…which works better? flat brush…kabuki..wet sponge or fingers?


poonam March 23, 2013 at 10:06 PM

I dont have Flat top brush or a wet sponge.. so couldnt compare…
but use Bourjois Kabuki Brush ..
I have tried applying foundation(Liquid) both with fingers and Kabuki Brush bu
With kabuki brush you will need to use a lott of product.. So what I do is .. Dot foundation all over my face.. blend it with fingers.. Then use a slightly wet kabuki brush and with small circular motion roll it all over your face.. Not only it gives even finish but takes out excess foundation from your face and gives a flawless finish
so fingers with Kabuki works for me..
will try sponge and flat top soon and will share my experience with you.. :)
