Upgrade your beauty routine! These four tricks will still be used in 10 years.
PRIMER ALL THE WAY
Primer is a base for foundation and other face makeup that allows it to go on smoother and last longer. However, face primer does serve a purpose greater than just easing cosmetic application. It’s also intended to protect and nourish the skin. Formulas are available in cream, gel and powder. Really, you will be thankful at the night’s end. Finally, not only does your makeup last much longer, it will look like that fantastic glow comes naturally.
LOVE THE BROWS
Your eyebrows are like a frame to a stunning painting. Nothing lifts the face faster than a well-updated brow. Need we go on? We will go on, just in case. Because eyebrows are the new lashes. So start filling in the thinner areas with pencil or powder. Comb up and, if desired, finish off with some gel or a little Vaseline for a bit of gloss and fixation.
READ MY LIPS
Before applying your lipstick, grease your lips with a bit of concealer to just beyond the edge. This camouflages redness around your lips and prevents your lipstick from smudging. To make sure you will not get any lipstick on your teeth, stick your thumb in your mouth and pull the back past your lips. Preferably don’t do this in front of other people, they might feel uncomfortable.
CONCEALING THE DARK SIDE
You might be a fan of dotting on your concealer in the spots you need it, but the best way is actually to apply it in a triangular formation. The base of the triangle should be directly under your lashline and the point toward the bottom of your cheek. This shape helps conceal any redness at the bottom of your eye and at the sides. Furthermore, it instantly creates the illusion that your face is lifted since the brightest point, under your eye, is the most intense.
Love building your lashes to new heights and/or thickness? Then you know how essential it is that the whole thing does not clump. Therefore, invest in a mascara comb. Finish off brushing your lashes before the mascara dries up and notice how people will ask you if those impressive lashes are really yours. In addition, let your mascara tube soak in a glass of hot water, this will make the formula thinner and easier to apply.
