Plump up your lips
To give an illusion of fuller lips, while applying lipstick, apply a lighter shade of the same colour in the centre both your lips and blend with a brush. This will make your lips look more plump and luscious. This trick works very well with cream lipsticks.
While applying falsies...
Whether you wear false eyelashes only on certain occasions or on a regular basis, the gluing part is always very tricky. Makeup gurus recommend you to apply a little extra eyelash glue on both the ends of the fake lash because that is usually where they peel off from. Another thing to try is to squeeze out the glue on your hand and then apply the glue on your falsies with a fine brush or a toothpick so that there is no excess application of glue which will ruin your set of eyelashes.
Less is more with foundation and contour
The key to perfectly contouring your face is to know the high and low points of your face. Make sure that you apply foundation more at the centre of the face and blend outwards. Apply contour that is one or two shades darker than your skin tones on the low-points of your cheeks and a highlighter on the higher points of your cheek and brow bones.
Choose foundation and contour wisely
More often than not, people end up with shades of foundation that is lighter or darker than their actual skin tone. This happens because the foundation is being tested on the wrong part of the body. The jaw is the best part on which your foundation has to be tested. If the shade complements your complexion, the foundation is good to go.
Get a natural blush
Ever wondered how some celebrities and beauty gurus have perfectly flushed pink cheeks? It’s because they have this trick up their sleeve. They apply a lip – stain on their cheeks before the application of foundation. This gives the face a natural pink tint. Ladies, now you know what to do!
Achieve the perfect eyelash curl
To have long and wispy goddess-like eyelashes, place your mascara wand in front of a hair dryer for 5-6 seconds and then proceed with the application. This will help your eyelashes curl better and not leave them stuck to each other.
