In the world of beauty, as in most other skill areas, if you can learn a tip quickly, you’ll be much more likely to use it.The most effective advice is the kind that you can put into action easily and immediately. The four makeup tips in this article fall into that category.
They’re all fairly basic tips, but they’re also all things that are easy to overlook. By making these simple changes to your beauty routine, you can get better results from it right away.
1. Before Applying Your Foundation, Let Your Skin Absorb Your Moisturizer Fully
If your skin has fully absorbed the moisturizer you put on first, your makeup will go on much more smoothly, and you’ll get better coverage.
This one simple tip can easily save you a lot of money over time, because you’ll use less foundation each time and your supply of it will run out more slowly. Using this makeup tip will also help you look your best.
2. Use Lip Balm Before Bed
It might seem to make sense to apply makeup to your lips the same way as you do to your face: by applying a moisturizer first (the lip balm), then applying a coat of color.
However, while lip balm is a moisturizer, it doesn’t get absorbed as quickly as the moisturizer you use on your face does. When you put on lipstick right after putting on lip balm, the lipstick just sits on top of the lip balm, and it just slides right off as soon as you drink or eat anything.
To avoid this effect, apply lip balm right before you go to bed. That way, when you wake up the next morning, your lips will already be moisturized and ready for lipstick.
3. Lip Liner First, Then Lip Gloss
Lip gloss is great, but it generally looks its best when there’s a layer of some kind of color underneath it. One good way to add this layer of color is by applying lip liner before you put on lip gloss.
The lip liner you choose should be just a bit darker than the natural color of your lips. Cover your lips completely with the lip liner, then add lip gloss on top of it.
4. Eyebrows Need Love, Too!
Most people don’t give a second thought to their eyebrows, but they’re a part of your look, too.
Waxing or tweezing your eyebrows into a shape that complements the shape of your eyes and face is an important part of looking your best. If you’re not sure how to do that, or you’ve never done it before, have a professional do it at a salon.
Once your eyebrows have been shaped, just take a second to brush them into place every time you do your makeup. You can do this with a simple eyebrow brush. If you wish, you can even apply a brow gel to set your eyebrows in place.
There are many more great makeup tips out there. These are just a few to get you started. If you keep researching, you’ll gather all the information you need to create the perfect beauty routine that makes you look and feel great every day.
