Today I have brought you a few basic tips – but very useful – for when we are already almost finalizing our makeup and ended up ruining it or doing something wrong, who hasn’t gone through this? I know its so frustrating and it makes us want to take the whole thing off and start from scratch. However, remain calm because I will share with you some tricks that use sooooo much, and I believe will help you finalize your makeup as if nothing happened.
Splotchy Mascara: it happens a lot to those who have long eyelashes or when we are in a rush and simply swiped the wand somewhere other than our lashes! Haha. The trick here is to leave it drying and continue to finish your makeup and only after a few minutes, come back to the area where you smudged with a small spoolie and gently wipe it off.
Too much blush: Sometimes when we are applying blush or bronzer, we mistakingly put too much on and we end up looking like a clown. This happens to me especially when I am trying a new product where its super pigmented. The trick for this is to use the same brush you applied your foundation with and gently go over your cheeks in circular motions until the blush is no longer too harsh.
Eyeshadow Fall Outs:
If you like to do your eyes with your skin already prepared, you run the risk of having eyeshadow fall outs which can completely ruin your foundation if your not carful when trying to removed it. My tip is: take a clean shadow brush (those small fluffy ones) and with the help of a translucent powder, gently swipe away the fall outs. However to avoid this, simply leave your eyes for last when doing your makeup. It will save you a lot of time!!
Without practice, it’s really hard to master the perfect cat eye, therefore it is normal to have one eye looking different from the other. Thankfully there is always a trick though, haha! To fix it, dip a Q-tip in water/makeup remover and pull the tip of the wing upward making it thinner so that you can then fix it so it looks more like the other eye.
Smudged dark lipstick: Dark lipstick is super difficult to be applied correctly, we always end up messing it up or going overboard. When this happens, I always get a wet Q-tip and gently go over the edges of my lips. I then grab a lip brush with some concealer on it and I outline my lip line with it – in addition to helping remove the smudge, this will also help define your lips.
