Hi everyone. Today, I have some makeup tips that have changed my life! These tips don't get enough recognition, so I’m going to share them with you. Let’s get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Concealer

  • Bronzer
  • Contour
  • Eyeshadow
  • Eye primer
  • Eyelash curler
  • Mascara
  • Lip liner
  • Brow pencil
  • Brow pen
Applying makeup

1. Do your makeup in the lighting you’re going to be seen in

Applying color corrector

2. To avoid gray under eyes, don’t go directly in with a brightening concealer

Use a concealer in your skin shade or a color corrector first. 

Applying water-based moisturizer to under eyes

3. Use a gel or water-based moisturizer under your eyes

This will give you the best concealer application.

Applying bronzer

4. For a realistic-looking tan, use a slightly reddish bronzer

This tells the eye it came from the sun.

Applying concealer

5. Add a lighter concealer to the area above your dark circle line

This will help with hollow under eyes.

Applying contour

6. Use a contour that’s slightly darker and grayer than your skin shade

This mimics the color of your existing shadows. 

Applying contour

7. Place your contour under where you want your cheekbone and jaw to sit

Applying primer

8. To prevent eyeshadow creasing, use an eye primer instead of concealer

Curling lashes

9. When applying your eyeliner, open your eyes and rest your eyelids

Align the metal part of your lash curler to the angle of your lash liner. This will lift the lashes from the root. 

Applying mascara

10. Look in the opposite direction of where you’re applying the mascara to

Lining lips

11. If you have a double lip line, line the inner one on the sides and the outer one in the center

Filling in brows

12. Use a brow pencil and pen combo for the most realistic looking hairs
