3 Basic Tips for Flawless Makeup
Like every other profession, makeup artistry has its rules, and all who practice it have to abide by them. While transforming ordinary women, into red-carpet goddesses is not something all of us can do, there are some simple, easy-to-follow rules we can stick to, that are sure to help us look our best every day.
Want to learn some tricks of the trade? Today we’ll share with you 3 rules makeup artists never break.
If your blush looks patchy and uneven, chances are your blush brush needs some urgent cleansing. Don’t be in a hurry to blame it on the blush you are using, because often, applying products with dirty brushes is the reason why we end up with makeup that is far from perfect.
According to the industry gurus, the first step to flawless makeup application is working with clean tools. Not only dirty brushes trap impurities and serve as field for bacteria growth, increasing the risk of unwanted breakouts, but they can seriously screw up your makeup. Believe it or not, even the best products on the market are not going to work for you, if you don’t apply them with clean brushes.
Pro tip: If you apply makeup daily, it is recommended to cleanse your brushes every 3-4 days. If you want to learn more about makeup brushes (how to choose, use, and maintain them) you can visit this page.

Start with Primer
I bet that most of you are thinking that primers are just another fancy product that marketers are trying to sell to you, because they know you are a woman, and you are (slightly) obsesses with buying skincare and makeup (raise your hand if you are in the same boat as me! ha-ha).
Makeup artists say: Primers are an absolute must for anyone who wants their makeup to look perfect, and to last all day. We couldn’t agree more.
Primers are designed to ensure your makeup stays in place all day long + they are enriched with moisturizing ingredients to help hydrate and smooth out the skin, so you can achieve flawless finish with ease. Primers also minimize pores, control unwanted shine and facilitate makeup application,
in general. Definitely not a product you’d want to skip.
Pro tip: If you are on the lazy team (no need to apologize, I totally get you) + you don’t want super heavy coverage, you can mix the primer you are planning to use with your favorite foundation. It’s better than not using primer at all, trust me.

Don’t Go Overboard with Shimmer
If you ask 50 makeup addicts what is their favorite makeup product, most probably, 45 of them will reply “highlighter”. Using highlighter is the easiest way to illuminate the skin and make it look dewy and fresh but be careful – it can be a double-edged sword.
We love when our highlight is poppin’, but we’d rather not have large pores, fine lines and imperfections poppin’ along with it, right?
Pro tip: When applying highlighter avoid the areas of your face that have more texture, and focus on those you want to make more prominent. After all, makeup is not about covering imperfect, but instead – accentuating the beautiful and making it stand out.
