Apply bronzer in a triangle
By now you know how important it is to use a Hollywood v style to apply concealer under your eyes, but did you know you can use a similar trick with your bronzer? When you’re working your bronzer on your cheeks, draw an inverted triangle under your eyes and the hollow of your cheekbones.
This will not only get to all the areas that need bronzera but will also make it simple and effective to blend the product in with. Don’t forget to apply some on the side of your cheeks – with or without the triangles – and blend that in well too!
Use tissue and translucent powder with lipsticks
While we know you love your long-lasting lipsticks, you can increase bronzer the life of the swipe on your lips without a second coat. Say you have a long day outdoors coming up, and want your lipstick to last all day, take 5 minutes out to try this trick.
After you’ve applied your lipstick, take a thin tissue paper and lay it on your lips; don’t press to hard! Next, dust some translucent powder on top to set it. Voila! No bleeding and a long-lasting swipe of lipstick, all yours!
Spray some setting mist or setting spray on the tip of your brush for a more intense looking finish
Use setting mist on your brushes
We love this trick especially when we’re trying to get the best out of our eyeshadows. Before you apply your eyeshadow – or even your bronzer – spray some setting mist or setting spray on the tip of your brush for a more intense-looking finish.
You can choose a dewy setting mist, a highlighting one, or even one for a more matte finish. You’ll never have had such an intense finish before this. Thank us later!
The closest substitute to natural light for makeup is a daylight bulb. Set up a corner in your room for this, and make sure the light hits your face from the front.
