Makeup Tips

Every makeup addict has a few tricks up their sleeves, here’s some of mine:


– For long-lasting makeup always apply a primer.

– For contouring always use dark matte browns.

– Always blend your foundation down your neck.

– Apply highlighter to the top of your cheekbone for a lifted look.

– Frequently clean your brushes to avoid getting spots.

– Use blotting paper on oily skin to absorb excess oil then powder if necessary, leaving you matte for longer.

– Liquid foundation can settle and separate, so always shake before use.

– To cover spots first apply green concealer (to cancel redness) then apply normal concealer.

– For instant face lift put hair in a tight ponytail or bun. (Warning: May result in headaches!)

– Use a setting spray once makeup has been applied to make it last longer.


– No eye primer? Use concealer as a base for lids, this will absorb oils making shadow last longer.

– Fuller eyebrows = Youthful look.

– Use light eyeshadow on the inner eye areas for a more ‘awake’ look.

– Apply black eyeliner on the top waterline to make washes look fuller.

– Wear white eyeliner in the lower water line to make eyes appear less red.

– Skip mascara on the bottom lashes to make eyes appear lifted.

– If you have thin lashes dust them with translucent powder before mascara to add bulk.

– Use small feather strokes when filling in eyebrows for a natural look.


– For fuller lips apply lip liner just outside your lips.

– To make lipstick last longer apply a lip seal such as lipcote.

– For a pouty look apply clear lipgloss just to the centre (top & bottom) of your lips.

– Don’t forget to frequently exfoliate your lips for a smoother suffice when apply lip products.

– To make lipstick matte just pat translucent powder over your lips.

– Make sure lips are dry before applying lipstick otherwise it won’t stick & will glide off.

– Fill in lips with a lip liner then apply lipstick to make it last longer.

And that’s all for now!

Thank you for reading and hoped you enjoyed.

Much Love
