5 Makeup Tips Everyone Should Know
Feb 24, 2013

Makeup is a part of most women’s lives. From the time we are young girls, we can’t wait to start using makeup to highlight our beautiful features and camouflage a few of our other ones. In fact, it is estimated that over $50 billion is spent on cosmetics in North America each year. As a nation, we buy a lot of makeup. The problem is, many of us don’t know how to use it to best advantage!

Most of us as young girls learned how to use makeup simply by watching our mother, grandmother, or older siblings. We never had anyone really sit us down and explain to us how we should go about using it to help us look our best. Believe it or not, there are some insider tips that can help you get the most out of your makeup.

Here are 5 makeup tips that everyone should know:

  1. Blush. When applied properly, blush can be a great way to help make your complexion look brighter and more vibrant.
  2. Eyebrows. To help enhance your face, have your eyebrows professionally shaped. The proper shaping will go a long way toward helping to frame your face.
  3. Concealer. Rather than using concealer all over your face, stick to using it only on those areas of your face that need it. This will provide a better overall look.
  4. Foundation. When choosing a foundation color, opt for one that matches your own skin tone. This will help provide a smooth look, rather than one that stands out and looks unnatural.
  5. Illumination. If you want to add an instant glow to your face and body, use an illuminating product. The effects are generally subtle, natural-looking, and beautiful.

Applying makeup beautifully is a skill that takes practice. Insider tips and tricks such as these can help you get the most out of your makeup, and give your appearance an amazing look. Just keep these makeup tips in mind and you will be well on your way to having a celebrity makeup day!
