Simple Makeup Tips

These simple makeup tips are sure to speed up your daily routine with striking results

  • Apply mascara to upper & lower lashes, in two thin coats to avoid clumsiness. Choose brown mascara if your coloring is fair; black or brown-black works well for darker coloring. Or try colored mascara such as navy or plum for fun, but don't go too bright if you want to be taken seriously.

  • Apply a concealer that is one shade lighter than your foundation. Dot it on over any blemishes or under-eye circles & blend with your fingertips or a makeup sponge. If your concealer tends to cake, apply eye cream first.

  • Choose foundation that matches your skin tone exactly. Apply it in dots over the central part of your face, and then blend it out with a makeup sponge or your fingertips until it covers your entire face.

  • Use a loose or pressed powder to keep foundation & concealer on longer. Use pressed powder to touch up when you’re away from home.

  • Do your eyebrows next. Use powdered eyebrow shadow on brows instead of pencil, which can often look unnatural. Apply it with a hard, slanted brush.

  • Choose three colors of eye shadow: light, medium & dark. Use the dark only to line your upper eyelid, in a fairly thin line along the upper lashes. Use the medium shade for the crease & the lightest shade for the area under the eyebrow. There are many variations on eye shadow application techniques.

  • Use cake eyeliner with a damp, thin liner brush, or an eyeliner pencil & line the lower lid below the lashes. Line only the outer two-thirds of the lower lid, or all the way across if you're trying to achieve a darker look. Line all the way across the upper lid (just above the lash line & as close to the lashes as possible), or start the line where your lashes begin.

  • Smile to find the apples of your cheeks & apply blush to the apples or below, whichever you prefer. If you have to blend in blush, it’s too bright.

  • Choose a lipstick color that’s suited to your skin tone & that's perfect for your day look. You can mix colors & textures to suit your moods & your outfits.

  • Line lips after applying lipstick, not before. That’s way you won't end up with a dark circle of lip liner after your lipstick has worn off. Avoid combining very dark lip liner & pale lipstick.
