There are tons of different makeup application tips out there, but how do you know that you are following the right ones? I’ve been putting my makeup on wrong forever – I had no idea that you should only apply blush to the apples of your cheeks or use opposite colors of the color wheel to get rid of redness! Check out these makeup application tips to hopefully find out some new tips you didn’t know about!
Mix primer with foundation
The very first of these makeup application tips that we’re going to talk about is all about saving you a step in your makeup application! Mixing primer with foundation is a great way to not only make your makeup last longer, but it’s the ideal way to save you some time in the morning!
Opposite colours cancel each other out
Did you know that when you use green-tinted concealer, it will cancel out red? What about when you use yellow-tinted concealer, it will fade out blue and purple that could make up any under eye dark circles? Just take a look at your color wheel, whatever is on the opposite side will cancel out the other color. This is a great tip to know when it comes to makeup!
Use eyeshadow on your lash line
Do you want your eyeliner to be really light, soft and subtle but don’t want to draw the line or can’t do it light? Use eye shadow with a very thin brush along your lashline! This will make your eyeliner appear really soft, subtle and smudged. It’s honestly a great trick I didn’t know about!
Flat side of brush for blush
One of the biggest problems that I have with blush is the fact that I can never get it applied right. Using the flat side of the blush brush can actually really help you control where you put the blush and it’ll allow you to know exactly how much you put on.
Lighter colours open eyes
If you are constantly looking for a way to keep your eyes open and to make them appear more awake, just add in lighter colors along your lashline and in the inner and outer corners of your eyes! What I do is I always use a bit of white, shimmery eye shadow right along the inner corners of my eyes and it makes me look awake all day!
