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

    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.
