Makeup tips that changed my makeup from normal to amazing!
Just like any beginner who wants to get very good with her makeup, I used to watch a lot of makeup tutorials and wonder why my makeup doesn’t end up looking as good. After years of applying the trial and error technique I learnt that most of us are making the mistakes that we don’t even know we are making.
The eye lash Curler: It's not as scary as it looks
So many makeup bloggers use the eye lash curler in their tutorials and yet most of us avoid using it. Some skip it because it looks scary to use and think it might just break our precious eye lashes in half.
I didn't use it for a long time too! Thinking it's only used by those who wear fake eye lashes.
Warm it a little with your hair dryer and use it before you wear your mascara.Use it and notice that your eyes will immediately look bigger and awake.For the correct technique watch a short tutorial by clicking here
Its not only the Correct brush, its how the correct brush is used
Have you ever seen a smoky eye tutorial on YouTube and followed it only to make a royal mess on your eye? That’s because before you go to the experts for that ultimate smoky eye tutorial you need to know how to use different brushes, where exactly to use them on your face or eyes, how to hold them and swoop them for the correct look. I recently saw a short tutorial on eye shadow do's and don’t by Christen Dominique and learnt how I was doing everything wrong. Watch the tutorial here

The face shape matters! A lot!
I used to think my face is round and apply my blush all wrong. One day I just stumbled on a technique on how to find out your face shape and figured that I have an oval face. A full face doesn’t mean you have a round face. Follow the correct process by using a guide by clicking here and use makeup techniques that suit the shape of your face. It will make a world of difference!

When we start applying our makeup we apply layer after layer because we are in a rush. Here’s a tip, if you are a beginner keep aside ample time. Take breaks between layers and let each product settle into your skin. Do other things while you wait for a layer to settle. Moisturise and decide what clothes you want to wear, Contour and curl your eye lashes till the products settle in. Half a minute to a minute break between two layers is enough. If you are really rushed use a fan.
It’s not necessary to own a 1000 makeup products, but a few products cannot be replaced or skipped.
Mac Fix plus and Make up forever HD powder are two such products. Mac Fix plus works wonders in giving a nice fresh look to the makeup and helps in setting it. The HD powder from Make up forever, sets the concealer and foundation and makes the pores almost invisible. You can also know about other products that are really good to own and are under 1000 INR by clicking here.
