So today’s blog post is a little bit different in the sense that instead of bringing you ANOTHER step by step, I’ve decided to just give you top 5 tips, that I’ve learnt over the years to slay your makeup. Just in time for NYE.
I’ve been watching Youtube Tutorials and practicing Makeup for over a year & although I’m not as good as I wish to be – I’m getting there.
DO YOUR EYES FIRST.
Girllll, if you dont know this already then where have you been? It is so much easier to wipe away fall out on a clean face rather than a done up face. Especially if using eyeshadow or glitter – this is essential. Eyes then face, blend those edges into your hairline too.
AFTER APPLYING FAKE LASHES REDO YOUR EYELINER
It makes a huge difference! It allows your falsies to look so much more natural rather than bits of fabric stuck to your eyes – not a good look. Also line your tightline with a Black Kohl pencil, as this will blend everything together.
USE ROSEWATER OR FIX+ AFTER SETTING & DUSTING OFF EXCESS POWDER
For example when baking, dust off excess with a brush and spray face to melt excess powder into face & bring the face together. Does that make sense? It works anyway so just go do it.
BLEND YOUR FOUNDATION IN WITH A WET BEAUTY BLENDER
Like fair enough if you want to do it with a brush, do you boo. But if you want a full coverage even application – WET YOUR BB. I don’t know how many more times I can say that so I’m going to leave it there. Go wet it. Go to the tap. Go.
OILY: SET YOUR PRIMER WITH A LOOSE TRANSLUCENT POWDER
DRY: DON‘T BAKE JUST SET
I know it sounds weird but honestly setting your primer with a loose Translucent powder will stop your foundation from slipping around. Which is perfect for Oil Skinned folk.
People get confused about the difference with setting & baking. Baking is a necessity for everyday makeup. Baking makes dry skin crack. However setting your makeup is essential. So set it for a minute and then brush away, rather than baking for 5/10 minutes. This will ensure your makeup stays on but your not cracking up under sweat.
And that is it!
My 5 top tips for you to slay your motherfucking makeup on nye. I hope you have an amazing night & feel free to tag me in your NYE makeup photos – I love seeing them!
Thank you so much for the continued support from all of you – HAPPY NEW YEAR.
