Make Up Tips & Tricks

Make Up Secrets

I came across these great make up tips when perusing the latest issue of Cosmo. The tips are from the book: Cosmo’s Sexiest Beauty Secrets.

*For a bold, notice me eye effect, dampen your brush slightly before dipping it into the shadow. The water will intensify the color for a deeper payoff. [from the chapter on eyes]

“I have tried this, it works really well. It also helps spread the shadow more evenly across the eyelid.” ~Kat

*Light up your skin in a subtle way by adding a tiny drop of liquid highlighter to the tinted moisturizer you use on your face. [from our chapter on skin]

*The trick to a flawless lip-color application is to let your mouth go a bit slack. If you pucker up or tense it, you won’t get an even finish. (from our chapter on lips)

“In other words, don’t do the starlet pout you see in the movies! Do more of a sexy relaxed pout when apply your chosen color.” ~Kat

Sometimes it is not the quality of the make up (even though that does make a HUGE difference), but how you apply it. So, take these little tricks into consideration, add them to your knowledge arsenal!! Next time you are, ‘putting on your face,’ try one or two out and see if you notice a difference.
