Make-Up Dos & Don'ts

With the help of my lovely friend, Tanner. (You may remember her from my blog post, Talented Tanner.) We have came up with a few Dos & Don’ts when applying make-up. These little tips and tricks go a long way, so I hope you find them helpful. Feedback is always fabulous as well!

Makeup {Dos}

  • Moisturize and {PRIME} your face before applying
  • Highlight your brow bone and inner corner of your eye to make them POP!
  • Match your foundation with your neck {not your face}
  • Clean your brushes once a week ~ A MUST!
  • As Jaclyn Hill says: Blend, Blend, & {Blend} your eyeshadow
  • Rim your top waterline with black eyeliner to create a fuller lash look
  • Rim your bottom waterline with nude eyeliner to create a wider eye look
  • Use natural lighting when applying
  • Always use a setting spray to hold all day
  • Conceal under eyes {blending up to the temple}
  • Wash Your Face Every Night <– { Very Important }

Makeup {Don’ts}

  • Don’t use a concealer that is too light or too dark
  • Don’t forget about your lips {make sure they accent your eye makeup}
  • Don’t forget about your eyebrows
  • Don’t use too much shimmer {for every day attire anyways}
  • Don’t {ever} apply creams after powders—that is what creates a “cake face” look. {CREAMS BEFORE POWDERS}
  • Don’t over line the entire lips {JUST the cupids bow for a plumping effect}
  • Don’t apply blush below the apples of the cheeks
  • Don’t use chalking eyeshadows {Blending becomes impossible}
  • Don’t apply mascara over dried mascara
