Girl’s teenage years can feel like both the most stressful and the best and most fun time of her life. One of the parts that are equally stressful and fun is makeup and figuring out how to apply it in the best and most flattering way possible.
Every woman has been through this struggle, so there is no need to worry. However, to make this process easier, we have made a list of some of the most useful makeup-related tips and tricks that every teenage girl needs to know. Keep reading to learn all of the shortcuts in the makeup world.
Never Put Concealer on Your Eyelids
While you are applying your foundation or concealer as a base, you may be tempted to use them on your eyelids as a base. However, you should not do it.
Foundation and concealer are doing a great job making your skin smooth and beautiful and concealing your dark circles and under-eye bags, but they are not the great base for your eyeshadow. Applying foundation or concealer on your eyelids is going to make your eyeshadow look creased or patchy.
Heat Up Your Eyelash Curler
A lot of women find that curling their eyelashes the usual way only keeps them lifted for a few hours before they are back to their general, straight state. If that is the case for you, you should try heating up your eyelash curler before using it. If it is lightly heated up, your eyelash curler can help your eyelashes hold its shape for more extended periods. All you have to do is use your blow dryer to heat up your eyelash curler. Once you heat it up, you should make sure to hold it against your wrist to make sure it is not too hot, so you don’t burn your eyelashes.
Match Lip Color with Cheeks
Matching the colors of your lips with the color of your cheeks is going to create a coordinated and natural appearance that is very pleasing to the eye. And the best part is that you can easily achieve this by turning your favorite lipstick or lippen into a cream blush. All you have to do is apply a little bit of product on your cheeks and your finger to blend it across. Just make sure you are using rosy or reddish shades.
Make Your Lipstick Last Longer
Women know that lipstick tends to end up everywhere but on your lips. If you have a problem with your lipstick disappearing so much that you have to reapply it through the day, there is a handy trick that is going to give it a longer life. After you apply your lipstick, place one layer of paper tissue over your lips and dust on some translucent powder. This little trick is going to help you set your color and make the lipstick longer-lasting.
Make Your Foundation Have Lighter Coverage
A lot of women don’t like the feeling of heavy, cakey foundation on their faces, especially throughout the day. If you already have a high-coverage foundation and you want to make it a lighter coverage, but you don’t want to buy a new one, you should try adding one or two drops of argan oil before applying. The mixture of oil and foundation will create a light formula that will glide onto your skin and make it radiant.
