For beginners who are just starting to put on makeup, it may take some time in getting used to the different products and jargon associated with beauty.
If you are not sure where to start, learn the basics like how to properly apply powder, eyebrow, and lips. Once you master them, slowly ease your way into specific steps like contouring and highlighting.
Here are some easy and fast tricks that every girl should know:
Conceal dark and puffy eyes by creating an inverted triangle
When applying concealer underneath your eyes, draw an inverted triangle with the base directly underneath your lash line and the point moving towards the bottom of your cheek.
Blend well with a special brush. This shape helps conceal any redness and puffiness you may have while also giving your face an instant lift.
Use a pencil, brush handle, or a pen as a guide
When applying bronzer use a pencil and gentle roll it underneath your cheekbone (which is in the pocket directly underneath the actual bone to find the right angle of your face.
Once you find the right placement, dust some bronzer and blend well with a contouring brush.
Lipstick as cheek tint
Use your favorite pink lipstick as a blush or a cheek tint. Simply dab your finger on the product and blend it against the apple of your cheeks for a subtle tint.
Lift your eyes
Use highlighter to draw an arch directly above your eyebrow and blend with your finger. This gives the illusion that your entire eye area has been lifted.
