Lesson #01: Multi-tasking your makeup products

Debasree, who’s always got her makeup game going strong gave away a super cool hack at the Be Beautiful Beauty Boot Camp. You’ll be surprised to know that the blogger makes her liquid lipstick multitask like a boss. She uses it not just as a lipstick but also as an eyeliner. Yes, you read that right!

Lesson #02: Contouring 101

Going a little overboard with contour powder to get some Instagrammable images is fine, after all it is going to look natural on camera. However, if you step out with oodles of contour powder, it is going to look super heavy and OTT. To tone it down a notch, Debasree Banerjee suggests using a clean brush or sponge and just dab a little over your cheeks to reduce the intensity.

Got hooded eyes? Beauty blogger Debasree Banerjee has a million-dollar tip for you. She suggests going a little beyond your crease line to apply your eyeshadow. Only then will your eyeshadow pop when you open your eyes.

Girls, if you want your makeup to look natural and beautiful when you step out and not cakey and uneven, then here’s a Debasree-approved makeup tip that’s going to help you look like a million bucks. The blogger who’s got some applaud-worthy makeup skills suggest that the best lighting in which you should do your makeup is natural light.
