By Edited Sep 15, 2015 0 0

There is a thought that the world of makeup and makeup application is one of mystery and disguise. That the knowledge of how to look like your favorite actors and actresses is something that only the highest paid makeup artists in the world know. The good news is that this is not true. There is not special degree or school that you need to go to if you want to apply makeup like a pro. All you need to know is the must have makeup tips and tricks to be able to look your best when you step foot out your door.
-
Makeup Tip One
-
Makeup application is something that should be enjoyed. If you look at applying your makeup as a chore then it will look like something that you didn't want to have to do. Have you ever noticed how the projects that you do because you are passionate about them turn out the best? This is something that you can easily use to your advantage. Find this as a time in your morning or where ever you are applying your cosmetics, as a time of fun and enjoyment. This will make your face look its best at all times.

Makeup Tip Two
-
You get what you pay for when it comes to makeup. Now you do not need to spend hundreds of dollars on the makeup that you use to get good results. That being said, there is a reason that they cost more. Often times it is because they contain more pigment and other ingredients that make their application smoother. Yes, this does usually result in a better product and look. If you invest what you can on your makeup and do not just buy something because it is cheap, then you will look fabulous no matter what you are doing.

Makeup Tip Three
-
Makeup may not have an expiration date on it, but that does not mean that it is good forever. The usual rule of thumb is that you should not hold onto any makeup longer then 6 months. This is usually the time that you use up most makeup from foundation to powder. You will want to pay special attention to any makeup that you put around your eyes on this expiration date item. If your makeup changes color or starts to smell then you will want to get rid of it and replace it right away. Makeup that is past its prime can cause breakouts and even infection or blindness if it is used around the eyes.

Makeup Tip Four
-
When it comes to foundation, if it is not properly matched to your skin then it will always look like you are wearing a mask. This is one of those makeup truths that most people do not want to believe. It is almost impossible to get a good match on foundation by looking at a bottle in an aisle in a drug store. You need to have it applied to the skin to see if it can be seamlessly blended into your natural skin tone. This is why it is a good idea to go to a makeup counter and have your skin matched by a makeup artist.

Makeup Tip Five
-
Concealer is one of those makeup products that you should never leave home without. It is the one piece in your arsenal that can take care of any problem that may arise. The first thing that most people think about is that concealer can be used to cover zits and blackheads. It can also be used to minimize the appearance of dark under eye circles. A secret to the use of this makeup super star is to use it on your eyelids as a base for your eyeshadow. This will help the color to look brighter and your eyemakeup to last all day.

Makeup Tip Six
-
Bronzer is not just for those that tan. Bronzer is one of those makeup products that have gotten a bad rap through the years. With the fact that actual tanning is bad for your skin, bronzer has been thrown under the bus so to speak. Yes, bronzer can be used to make it appear that you spent the day out in the sun without your sunscreen. There is another fabulous use for bronzer. Bronzer can make one of the best choices when it comes to blush.
-
Makeup Tip Seven
-
Blush is not just for giving yourself a blushed look on your cheeks. Blush can be used as a tool to make your face look thinner then what it is. As you apply your blush with a large powder brush, you want to allow it to follow the natural line of your cheek bone. As the cheek bone goes in a line with the tops of your ears, so should your blush. By bringing your blush up and onto the top of your ears, it elongates your face. This is especially true if you will be wearing your hair back off your face.
-
Makeup Tip Eight
-
Lip gloss is a very popular look for most people but almost impossible to get to last all day. Lip gloss will usually come off with the first drink or bite of food that you take after it has been applied. When that happens, all you are left with is your natural color lips. Do not fear. There is a trick for this. Find a lip liner that is close to the base color of the lip gloss that you want to use. Line and then fill in your lips with the lip liner. This will give your lips great color no matter how many drinks you have. Apply the lip gloss over the lip liner and you are ready to go.

Makeup Tip Nine
-
One makeup application step that most people skip is setting your makeup in place for the day. This is the step that helps to seal all of your hard work to make it last through out your day. For the majority of your face, you will want to use a translucent loose powder. If you place some of the loose powder on a tissue and then apply it with a large powder brush, you will get the great set makeup look that you want. Now one of the ways to set your eye makeup into place is to sweep the brush that you have used to apply your blush lightly over your eye lids after you have applied your blush. The light amount of blush that will go over your eye makeup will set it in place for the day.

Makeup Tip Ten

If there is one thing to remember when you are thinking about makeup is never be afraid to try something new. If you do not experiment and try new things from time to time, your makeup will get dull and boring. There are many great ways to do this. You can choose one makeup item a month to add to your collection. You can also get free makeup samples to get some of the newest products on the market to try.
