What if I told you that your eye shadow palette can be used in a variety of different ways –not just on your eye lids-, or that you can pull off the ultimate cat-eye look, error-free in just a few minutes? No matter if you are a pro or simply just begin your makeup journey, these tips will come in handy especially if you are on a tight budget.

  • Your primer and foundation should have the same base, if not they will turn against each other with the risk of giving you a greasy, melted look.
  • Applying your favorite foundation can be tricky. If you are going for a sheer, natural look use your fingers to apply the product. If you aim for full coverage, use a brush or a beauty blender.
  • We all have facial hair, whether it is noticeable or not. Make sure to apply your foundation using downward strokes, otherwise you will bring much unnecessary attention to them.
  • Even though most of us are used to apply concealer in a circular shape, the right way to pull off the perfect look is by using creating a conical shape that is easily blendable and adds definition to the end of your nose.

  • Powders can be used or different purposes depending on their formula. Loose powders are often used to make your makeup last longer, press powders however are made for quick touch-ups. Always prefer a fluffy brush to apply your favorite powder to have the best results.
  • If you have large pores, shimmery blushes will only enhance them. It would be best to avoid these formulas if you suffer from acne, pimples, or any other skin condition.
  • Bronzers will not only make you look glowy and sun-kissed, but they are also a great way to add definition to your face. If you are feeling up for something fun goes ahead and create your bronzer using items you already own. All you need is some cinnamon, cocoa, and nutmeg powder to mix with some cornstarch and voila! A completely chemical free bronzer.
