We reveal the ingenious make-up tricks that you should definitely incorporate into your daily beauty routine!
While we used to experiment wildly in front of the mirror, over time, most women develop their own firm make-up routine. Nevertheless, here and there are some real professional tricks that perfect the make-up look – and even save time in the mornings!
Here are some practical make-up tips that you absolutely must try:
Primer as insider tip for a great complexion
Do you have the feeling that your make-up looks spotty or can no longer be seen after just a few hours? Then you probably did not use a primer. A real beauty faux pas!
Applying a primer on the face before the foundation (and after the day cream) is THE secret of beauty professionals. It not only ensures that the make-up looks even, but also that the foundation holds longer and the concealer does not settle in the eye wrinkles so quickly.
Optically lift the eye area with concealer
For a nice natural finish, a good moisturizer before make-up is already half the battle. Those who refrain from the care as a base, risking an ugly, spotty result, because the skin is too dry. Then a bright concealer is used. Especially great are concealers with light-reflecting particles: they light up and distract fantastic from dark eye shadows.
Apply a point to the inner corner of the eye with the concealer and a second point about one to two centimeters below it. Apply a third point on the outer eyelid and connect these three points with each other, so that a somewhat crooked triangle is formed.
The triangle fades gently over the cheeks. In this way, the eye area is visually lifted and you look the same younger and more radiant.
Tip: It is particularly even when you use a beauty blender to blend.
Foundation without make-up edge
The nuts and bolts of a foundation are to give the face an even complexion without making it look like make-up. An important role is played by the foundation itself because the product should suit the skin type and skin tone.
The color should differ as little as possible from their own skin tone. The color is best tested in bright daylight on the cheek.
When applying the Foundation applies: less is more. Apply the foundation in the center of the face and use it with a make-up brush or sponge – gently to the outside. The outer edge blinds her with her finger, so there no excess make-up from the brushlands. So you avoid a mask-like make-up edge. The Foundation itself cannot be well with the fingers blind, because the skin is too dry? Then dab a little moisturizer or a drop of argan oil on the edge of your face to blend.
Natural Glow trick
For your complexion to shine naturally, the Foundation does not powder the entire face. This leaves your face too heavily frosted and dull. Apply transparent powder only on the T-zone, ie on the forehead, nose, and chin. The cheeks and the eye area saves her from doing so. So the first step to the natural glow is already done.
For the freshness, some blush on the cheekbones, for example, in a bright pink or Pfirsichton. Over the blush, you add a touch of highlighter – and the perfect glow is done!
Power eyelashes without fly legs
Caked eyelashes make the entire look unkempt quickly. In order to achieve a clean result, start by tapping the lashes of your eyelashes a couple of times. Only then with the brush through the entire length.
So the individual eyelashes are much better separated from each other and there are no lumps. If a few eyelashes stick together, you can separate them with a dry eyelash brush, as long as the ink has not dried yet.
Full eyebrows thanks to baby powder
If you want to visually fill your eyebrows, you can just brush some baby powder on the eyebrows before applying the eyebrow powder – for example, with an eyelash comb. In this way, the individual hairs thicker and small gaps seem perfectly covered. Who then uses an eyebrow angel is best to brush instead of the inside out, starting with the outer hairs and work inward. The hair is better absorbed by the brush and covered with gel more intensively.
Dream lips with lipstick layering
Of course, lipstick may end up in a hurry directly without preparation on the lips. But who wants a really nice finish, should use the following tricks: surround your lips first with a lip liner. #
It ensures that the edge stays nice and the lipstick does not run. If you do not like too strong contours around the lips, you can also use a nude or transparent pen.
The second trick is to apply the lipstick with a brush. So you manage much better to bring just the right amount of color to your lips. Lastly, put on a second lipstick that slightly changes the nuance.
Especially great effects are created, for example, in matt colors in combination with a particularly creamy lipstick or a metallic nuance.
Look less make-up
Do you have the impression that you have applied too much make-up by mistake? Then sprinkle your face with a little bit of thermal or rose water. Due to the moisture, the make-up blends better with the skin and does not make you look too heavily made-up.
Alternatively, this trick also works with a special make-up fixing spray, also called Setting Spray. The spray is perfect for refreshing your complexion on the go.
