Makeup Tips for All!

Updated on January 7, 2020

I am a self taught makeup artist and have been doing makeup for 4 years now. I love to educate and empower people to utilize makeup.

Product Knowlege

  • Primer and moisturizer are major components to creating a good base for your makeup. Moisturizing your skin with a daily serum/moisturizer along with vitamin E, jojoba oil, coconut oil, and/or rose hip oil are great places to start! Then, invest in a primer that benefits your skin and makeup application. There are eye shadow, eye lash, and foundation primers. All will drastically affect application by making your eye shadow's pigment pop, lashes appear longer, and foundation apply seamlessly. There are primers for those who need oil reduction, moisture, and many other needs. I love E.L.F face primers and NYX eye primers. (Here's a helpful guide to which oil is best for you: https://helloglow.co/custom-face-oil-formula/)
  • You do not need expensive products for your makeup to look great and last! Simply invest in affordable makeup that suits YOUR needs. E.L.F, Colourpop, NYX Cosmetics, and many independently owned businesses create affordable, high-quality makeup. My most expensive products are the Fenty highlight palette and Marc Jacob foundation.
  • Brushes matter! Invest in a good foundation brush, concealer brush, facial blending brush, eye shadow brush, eye shadow blending brush, and powder brush. Many times makeup application is faulted because we use the wrong brushes for the wrong things. For instance, I used to always wonder why my eye shadow was not pigmented enough. I later learned it was because I was applying eye shadow with a blending brush. (Visit https://www.dermstore.com/blog/top_ten/makeup-brush-guide-infographic/ for more info)

Eyes and Eyebrows

  • The best way to create a perfect winged eyeliner look is VERY simple. Draw a line from the corner of your eye out, then connect the line to your inner corner of your eye, fill it in, then take either concealer or a makeup wipe and critique as needed. You cannot go wrong with this method.
  • Eyebrow pencils are the best way to go. They are inexpensive and the finish is unmatched by pomades and gels. It has the most natural looking finish. I love my Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade, but my hair store eyebrow pencil is undefeated.
  • For eyelash application: less glue is more. A thin, but solid coat is all you need. Give your glue at least 10 seconds to get tacky. Start from the outside corner of your eye and place the lash as close to the lash line as possible. Press firmly. Now, press the inner corner in while keeping close to the lash line. Finally, take either tweezers or your finger and press your eyelashes and false eyelashes together. Apply mascara to blend them together and voila.

All-in-All

Everything from the primer you use to the products you utilize will have an impact on the finish and style of your look. You have to find the products that work for your budget and style. Never be afraid to try new things!

Jazz It Up!

  • The key to a crisp cut crease is to build up the pigment along your crease and use a white primer to cut your crease. NYX jumbo white pencil or cream base is the best. LESS is always more. Too much product can be messy and cause the product to transfer higher than it should. Also, use a small concealer brush and take your time.
  • Find shades/pigments that compliment your skin tone. There are so many different shades of each color. You want your eye shadow, concealer, foundation, and lipstick to accentuate your beauty and complexion. If you have rosy skin, then a beautiful pink blush and red lip would be stunning. Whereas if you have darker skin, a burgundy tinted blush and maroon lip would make you pop.
