Proper application of concealer

Concealer is used to hide spots and other skin discolorations. The concealer should not be applied all over the face. It should instead be applied where needed. The forth finger is used to apply the concealer in areas such as around the eye from the inner corner moving outwards.


Apply just enough bronzer

The next step is the application of a bronzer. This helps to attain an even skin tone. Use a fluffy brush that will allow you to shake off any excess bronzer before applying it. This ensures that you apply only a sufficient amount of bronzer.


Adhere to the ‘number 3’ rule

Use a motion that resembles a backwards facing number ‘3’. This is to make sure that the makeup is properly applied to areas such as the chin, forehead, cheeks and nose that are majorly hit by the sun.


Curl your lashes

Once the skin is done, you move your attention to your lashes. Using an eyelash curler, curl your lashes in two rounds. The first round should be as near as possible to the root of the lashes, while the second should concentrate n the tips of the lashes.


Maintain hygiene

Before applying any makeup onto your eyes, ensure your wands are clean. The eyes are very sensitive and should be treated with care. After every five applications, use a piece of tissue paper to wipe clean your wand.


Apply mascara

Using a clean wand, apply mascara from the base of the lashes towards the tip, ensuring you move the wand back and forth. This ensures that you coat all the laches with the mascara.


Finish off with the eyeliner

Use an eyeliner to create a continuous line at the base of the lashes. This connects all the lashes, and creates a fuller more voluminous appearance.


Utilize your cosmetic products

One cosmetic can be used in more than one way. For example, you can use your lipstick as a blusher. This helps to match the colors as well as to save on cost.


Make use of your fingers

Your fingers can form the best most effective brushes. Use your fingers to apply makeup as they allow you to maneuver round hard to reach areas such as the corners of the eyes.



Use the ‘triangle’ blending rule

While blending in the blusher to your skin tone, the motion should move towards the top and the bottom of the ear. This forms a triangular shape.


Finish off the entire look with a highlighter

To finish off you look completely, use a highlighter to accent the main facial features including the cheekbones, the eyes and the nose bridge. This helps to bring the look together.


By the time you are done following these makeup tricks, the search for beauty will be a thing of the past.
