You wake up every morning and wear the same makeup you’ve been wearing for years, same routine? Well, save time and energy to wear makeup the smarter way, it’s easier than you think.
- Prep the Skin:
Preparing the skin is a must before you apply any type of foundation. This means starting with a light moisturizer with SPF and primer, Apply moisturizer first and allow it to set a minute, then apply primer. Taking these steps prior to foundation will ensure your skin is both protected, moisturized and smoother with less visible pores and fine lines.
- Translucent Powder:
Translucent pressed powder is the great equalizer if you’ve applied too much eyeshadow or blush. Blend away a bit of the excess and pat on some translucent powder.
Apply lipstick first and then add your lip liner. Once lipstick is applied you can see exactly where you need the lip liner. Moreover applying eyeshadow first before foundation can be a great clean up time saver.
Blend the shadow on your lids right into the liner, no one will be able to tell where the eye shadow ends and the line begins, so the liner will look perfect. Also make sure you blend the foundation really well. My favourite blending product is the Beauty Blender, it leaves no residue.
- Perfect lips:
Use a colorless lip pencil prior to lipstick or lip liner application. This will reduce appearance of any fine lines around lips! Try using lip liner as your lip color, too. Line outer lips and fill in with same color.
