Sometimes it is immensely difficult to get a perfect makeup routine because you somehow end up doing something entirely wrong which ruins the whole look. They say that practice makes a man perfect, but even after years and years of applying makeup, women still wouldn’t call themselves perfect makeup artists. Reason might be that most of the time women are not even confident that they are doing it correctly because there are no specific guidelines for makeup, so they end up being more than content with however they choose to do it. Here are some new techniques for you as recommended to us by makeup experts.
Instant Face Lift:
The shape of your face is crucial when it comes to applying makeup and enhancing that shape is very tricky. This makeup move will give you a subtle change that brightens your face. Take a concealer pencil and draw three horizontal lines like cat whiskers near the nose spanning out across the cheek. Use a sponge or clean brush to blend each line in an upward direction for an instant lift and ultra brightening effect.
To boost the effect, use a concealer pencil in the manner described above, and then directly above each whisker, draws another whisker line using a highlighter. Some experts say “When the concealer and highlighter are blended into the skin, it will not only lift and highlight, but will make the skin look airbrushed.”
Tone It Down
If you have applied eye shadow that is a little too intense, don’t remove it, just dip a shadow blender brush in bronzing powder, and sweep across the entire lid,” says Strand. “The bronzing powder will work like a neutral tint, so it will diffuse and soften the color without changing it too radically.”
For Lush Lashes
To get a better curl, use the three-pump system with your lash curler. Start with a squeeze at the base of the lashes, then a squeeze in the middle and end with a squeeze at the tips of the lashes.
Once you’ve curled your lashes, sprinkle a small amount of loose powder onto them, and then apply your mascara. Apply a second coat by zig-zagging the wand through the lashes to fan them out. You will notice that the powder helps to maximize the look of each lash.
For Fuller Lips
Try and connect the two points of your Cupid’s bow (the top of your upper lip) with a nude lip pencil, like the way you line your lips, before going over the area with a light gloss.
An Improved Cat Eye
If you’re a cat eye lover, but you still can’t manage to draw on a decent cat eye, this is a simple way to do it. In a recent online video for Keds, Taylor Swift shared her tip for getting a good, straight line: Instead of worrying about flicking out from the top lash line, follow the bottom lash line up with an eye pen. This ensures you get the perfect angle for your cat eye.
