BestBeautyAdvice: MAKEUP

BestBeautyAdvice has put together a list of the best tips to help you perfect your makeup routine.

  • When trying to look well rested, avoid piling on the foundation. Instead, use a tined moisturizer followed by a beige eye pencil-it counteracts any redness around your eyes.
  • To perfect your complexion (no matter what your skin tone), try lipstick in a warm pink.
  • Refresh your makeup by spraying your face with water. While your face is still wet, start reblending the foundation, powder, or concealer you already have on.
  • To get rid of oil and refresh makeup, lightly mist your face with toner, then pat with a tissue. Then, finish with a dusting of loose powder.
  • Identify blemish patterns on your face. Look at the way you hold the telephone, whether you sleep more on one side of your face or if you hold your head up with one hand when sitting. Try to avoid doing these things.
  • Tyra Banks revealed during one of her shows that drugstore brand makeup works just as well as those pricey bands found in department stores. For the most part this is true. It’s not always the brand which you choose that’s important but the technique in which you apply it.
  • After applying make-up, go outside or near a window to check for any discolorations and streaks.
  • Always use good lighting and a clean mirror.
  • Don’t ever use outdated cosmetics, particularly around the eye area. Most products do show an experation date either on the make-up or the packaging when bought.
  • Try bronzing powder underneath your cheeks and jawbone to make your face appear slimmer.
  • To make your nose appear smaller, apply bronzing powder carefully down the sides and add a little shimmer creme or powder down the bridge of your nose.
  • Clean your make up brushes and applicators often to reduce bacteria and oil. Try to stay away from harsh soaps that can strip your brushes, instead, try using baby shampoo.
  • If your powder blush or eye shadow breaks up in the compact you can use alcohol to press it back together.
  • Never share your make-up with anyone to avoid catching or spreading any kinds of bacteria.
  • For natural-looking results, apply glow products to the apples of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, your hairline, and chin.
  • When covering up blemishes, select a color for what you’re covering up. For example, orange-tinged concealers counteract blueish under-eye circles. A mint-green concealer hides the redness of a pimple. The idea is that concealers act as neutralizers.
  • Thick foundation and powder make-up fall into pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. Too look younger, use a moisturizer as a base, before your foundation.
  • Your foundation should match your face and neck, so don’t try it on your hand or arm for color a match.
  • Use a foundation with a sunscreen included to prevent future skin damage.
  • Chances are you will need a different shade of foundation for each season, so don’t use the same one all year long. Blending colors sometimes is the only way to get a perfect match (ex: for fall mix  your summer foundation with your winter foundation).
  • Make sure you also apply foundation on your eyelids, lips and into your neck for a more natural look. This also is a great setting for eye shadow and lipstick and helps it stay on longer.
  • Liquid foundation can settle and separate in the bottle, so remember to shake it up before use.
  • Apply loose translucent powder with a large cosmetics brush to set your foundation and keep it from running in hot and humid weather.
  • Powder foundation is ideal for oily skin and will help reduce shine.
  • If your foundation is too heavy, add a couple drops of moisturizer to thin.
  • When it comes to using false lashes, avoid the spidery look by applying a strip of false lashes meant for your lower lashes from corner to corner. They’re shorter than traditional falsies, so they’ll thicken your lash line without elongating it too much
  • Apply more glue to the outer lashes when applying false lashes because these are the lashes that are tend to fall off quicker.
  • Keep your eyes open when applying liquid liner otherwise your line will look uneven.
  • If you’re looking for a dramatic eye, try liquid eyeliner. Choose an eyeliner brush that is small with angled bristles for a cleaner line.
  • To keep eye shadow from creasing use an eye shadow base or pressed powder before applying color.
  • To make small eyes look bigger, stay away from dark eyeshadows. Start with a nude base, then apply shadow a shade or two darker than the base to your crease and use your finger to blend the color up toward your eyebrow.
  • Keep unruly brows looking polished with a slick of clear brow gel or mist an unused toothbrush or eye comb with hairspray to help flatten unruly brows.
  • Dip a cotton swab in eye-makeup remover, and trace it along your lids to erase any mistakes when there is no time to redo your whole look.
  • Blast your metal eyelash curler with a hair dryer for a couple of seconds to heat it up so your lashes bend more easily.
  • Use Eye shadow to shape and define your eyes. Three shades are ideal with the darkest on the lid and the lightest just below the brow bone.
  • Cream eye shadow is best used sparingly and only in cool weather because it has a tendency to crease.
  • Powder eye shadow stays on the longest.
  • To prevent damage to your eyelashes when using and eyelash curler, do not hold the curler too close to the roots.
  • Mascara is best when two coats are applied. Make sure the first coat is dry before applying the second.
  • Put your eye pencils in the freezer for a few minutes before sharpening.
  • The best way to plump up your lips is to dab a shimmery gloss in the middle of your lower lip (on top of a lip-tone lipstick or gloss).
  • To make thin lips appear larger, apply your liner just outside of your natural lip line.
  • Apply pressed powder on and around your lips to prevent your lipstick from bleeding.
  • Do not try to rub off red lipstick. Instead, take a cotton ball or tissue dipped in makeup remover, and just dab to erase the dark stain fast.
