It has taken me years to learn exact techniques and develop my skills as a makeup artist. Over time, there are a few tips and tricks. Makeup ideas nobody told you about, I have picked-up that have skilled me to be more effective in my application. I have well-read that you don't have to be a professional to use makeup that looks beautiful and natural. These tips will not just save you time but will enhance your looks in the process.
1. De-clump Mascara
I am a great supporter of replacing your mascara every month; however, any time’s all we have been that clumsy tube we keep meaning to replace. If you find yourself in this position, just put a few drops of Visine into your mascara. This will help cut up the clumps, and your mascara will be working like new till you get the chance to replace it.
2. Business Card-Eye Stencil
I learned this trick in makeup tips and tricks school and I have been using it ever since. I use a business card to get sharper defined lines for my eye shadow when I am looking for being a bit more dramatic. This trick works great for creating a cat eye effect.
3. Tight lining
In the eternal pursuit for longer, thicker, and fuller lashes, there is a very easy makeup tips to help us achieve this. Often referred to as the imperceptible liner, tight lining is the method of lining your upper waterline instead of above your lashes to provide the appearance of thicker lashes. The image to the right shows an eye without tight lining and one with tight lining. While the dissimilarity is subtle, the overall seem goes a long way.
4. Eye Shadow That Pops
Ever buy a lively color of eye shadow and when you use it you notice it looks anything but vibrant? The trick is to use a cream color base coat all over your lid before applying eye shadow. This base allowing for the truest color of the eye shadow looking on your lid. I love the MAC Paint Pot in the color Painterly.
5. Airbrushing Without an Airbrush Makeup
The beauty blender is a reusable makeup sponge that allows for even and effortless powder application. It leaves you with comparable effects to that of airbrushing and will never start streaks in your appear the way a brush can. It is fast, efficient, and simple to clean and goes strong for months before it wants to replace.
6. Heat Up That Lash Curler
Blast a hairdryer onto your lash curler for no more than 3-4 seconds before using. Heating up your lash curler always so slightly will have a comparable effect on your lashes that a rolling iron would have on your hair.
7. Powder on Lashes
A little bit of baby powder on your lashes before you put on your mascara can change the thickness of your lashes. Just a little dusting of powder before a couple coats of mascara will give you with a noticeable diversity in the thickness of your lashes.
