Make up tricks and options are endless nowadays, whether you’re a beginner or a pro there’s always more to learn. These 6 make up tricks are key and will save you a lot of trouble and time.
Get Rid Of Dark Circles
To get a wide-awake look, makeup artist Bobbi Brown has the right trick: “Prepare the under eye area with a hydrating, fast-absorbing eye cream, which will allow products to go on smoothly. Apply a corrector to cover the purple or green tones in the skin, and then follow with a concealer that is one to two shades lighter than your foundation. Finally, set the under eye area with a pale yellow powder to help it last longer and prevent creasing.”
Flawless Red Lipstick
Red lipstick is an essential part of every girl’s bag of tricks. Start with a very sharp lip liner, in the similar color as your chosen lipstick. As you apply, smile a little so the lips are tight and the liner goes on easier. Fill in the lips using the side of the liner, then take a lip brush and apply the lipstick for precision. If you make a mistake, take a little concealer on a small brush and erase it.
Apply Liquid Liner Accurately
Liquid liner is definitely one of the trickiest products to apply right, but once you learn the trick you can create any look you’d like in an instant. One way to test out liquid liner is to first use a taupe eyeliner pencil to gently trace a line just above the upper lash line. This trick allows you to make sure the lines are even and accurate before applying the liquid liner directly on top of the ‘test’ line.
The Perfect Lashes
When you’ve got naturally looking long, thick lashes, you don’t need a ton of other makeup to stand out. To get the perfect lashes, Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua says to “first be sure your mascara is no more than a month old, fresh mascara glides on easier and won’t flake. Wiggle mascara in at the base of the lash and sweep outward and upward.”
White Teeth Illusion
You can easily get the whiter teeth look without having to go through a whitening treatment. Hollywood esthetician Scott-Vincent Bora relies on red lip stain, but not on the lips. He says, “If celebrities don’t have time to whiten their teeth, but want a sparkling white smile, I’ll use a red lip stain on the gum line. This instantly makes teeth look whiter.”
Quick Voluptuous Lips
To make thin lips look thicker and fuller, use a lip liner, which is slightly darker than the lipstick you’re using. Then, highlight the outline of your lips to create the illusion of bringing them forward. Blend two lipsticks by applying one to the entire lip; finally add a faintly lighter shade or gloss in the center of both your top and bottom lips.
