High-quality makeup requires concentration and a lot of free time. Sometimes beauties spend a whole hour on restoring beauty. Professional make-up artists make make-up much faster and better. Any girl would give anything to know what tricks they use. If you are one of them, read on! It is here that all the secrets of makeup artists are collected! Your makeup will turn from a routine into a ritual of pleasure!
1. Apply blush… forever!
If you need to quickly refresh your face using the minimum amount of funds, this secret is for you! When you only have mascara and blush on hand, that’s basically all you need! When applying pink or peach blush to the apples of your cheeks, don’t forget to touch the eyelids and under the eyebrows with the brush – this will instantly open and rest your eyes. You don’t need any shadows!
2. Always soften the pencil with a lighter
This quick hack from professional makeup artists will come in handy no matter what black pencil you use. Let the lighter live forever in your cosmetic bag! Before you make up your eyes, hold the lead for a few seconds under an open fire – after that the pencil will become even softer and you can blend it into a haze as beautifully and thoroughly as possible. Profit!
3. Sponge + oil
If you have dry skin, applying foundation can be a problem. To forget about it, do not use brushes, but buy a sponge. Before use, wet it not with water, but pat it in a special facial oil. However, for this purpose, coconut will do. The “oily” sponge will help you flawlessly apply the tone even on dry and flaky skin.
4. Apply concealer on the wings of the nose and bridge of the nose
When you mask bruises under the eyes with a corrector, do not forget about the other two problem areas – where the wings of the nose end, and the bridge of the nose closer to the corners of the eyes. The skin in these places is often different in color, and a small lifebox will allow you to discreetly improve your makeup a little better. By the way, all professional makeup artists do this.
5. Hairspray instead of brow wax
To make the eyebrows look perfect and combed, it is not at all necessary to buy a special gel or wax. Just get a brush with which you will comb the hairs. Spray it with hairspray and run it quickly over your brows until it dries.
6. Get two foundations
This life hack was once shared on her blog by the famous Lisa Eldridge, creative director of make-up for Lancome. The bottom line is to use two tonal products for perfect makeup, always the same shade. You need to have a dense tone that is applied exclusively to problem areas – for example, around the mouth (the skin in this area often requires correction) or in the area of redness. And the second foundation, a light fluid or serum, is for the rest of the surface of the face where serious correction is not required. This secret will make your skin look as natural as possible!
7. Quickly Matte Moisturizing Lipstick
Matte lipsticks are in fashion, but, alas, even the highest quality ones dry out lips… There is a much simpler and more pleasant solution. Use your regular moisturizing lipstick and blush on top of it! Fluffy brush. Powder is not suitable for this purpose, it will only “eat” the color, but the blush will look perfect – try it.
8. Use your regular hair donut to clean your brushes!
Genius secret. If you are doing multi-colored makeup or blending different shades of shadows, it is not necessary to change brushes every time. To quickly clean your brush of dry products, an ordinary … “doughnut” for hair will come in handy! Yes, yes, the one with which we make bundles. It costs only 50 rubles, and works with a bang. Just move the brush over it – even after using dark shadows, you can apply light ones with the same tool. Wow!
9. Sunscreen instead of primer
It is not necessary to buy a primer (aka makeup base) if you have sunscreen for your face. After the holidays for sure stayed! It always contains titanium dioxide (do not worry, it is a harmless mineral), which gives the skin a light, subtle and healthy glow. It is possible that after that you don’t even want to apply a tone, but limit yourself to only powder.
10. Beige pencil – the base for everything
An eyeshadow base or a lipstick fixer – no need to buy anything extra, just “wind up” one pale beige pencil in your cosmetic bag. Soft. Better than the one for the lips. You can safely paint over the entire moving eyelid with it before applying shadows – the oily base of the pencil will not allow them to crumble. Use the same pencil as a lip primer – the lipstick will not spread.
