Free Makeup Tips - Some of the best makeup tips for you

Makeup Tip 1) Use toner on your face first and apply moisturiser, to enable better blending of foundation/concealer.

Makeup Tip 2) Work your foundation onto the face with fingers in circular motions, working one area at a time, say from forehead down one side of face, then down the other side with quick motion. Blend downwards and outwards with a dry sea or makeup sponge.

Makeup Tip 3) Concealer is best applied after foundation - apply small dots where needed and gently pat into the skin, then wipe with a sponge to remove excess. Concealer can be applied with a sponge flusk or lip brush using the tips. If you feel a little more colour is needed add to the spots, and blend again with sponge.

Makeup Tip 4) Use Translucent Loose Powder to set the makeup using a large soft brush and dusting over the face quickly in a downward motion. If the skin is more mature just use powder in the T-Zone of forehead, nose and chin.

Makeup Tip 5) To work out where to apply blusher, place finger along bottom of cheekbone and apply blusher in soft circular motions above that area. Never apply below the bottom of cheekbones, nor past a line from the centre of your eyes.

Makeup Tip 6) For a lighter much more natural look, after loading blush onto brush, tap end of brush lightly against your hand to remove excess, then apply.

Makeup Tip 7) Foundation over the eye lids provides a smooth matt base and it helps stop creasing.

Makeup Tip 8) Go for a "no-colour" eye shadow as a base, like a soft creamy shade "highligher" and place this on lids up to brow bone. For most eye shapes the dark colours needs to be used on outer eye area and/or in crease. If you use too much, add a little "no colour" or translucent powder.

Makeup Tip 9) Dont use colours to match your clothes, go for colours that suit you. Using neutral, smudgy colours will flatter your face and try to avoid mauve, and real pinky shades.

Makeup Tip 10) Eyeliner should be applied close to base of eyelashes to make them look thicker. A soft pencil is easier to manage.

Makeup Tip 11) Keep the thicker look to outer edge and with elbow on table for stability, draw the line towards inner corner of eye, thinning as you go. On lower lids, after application, smudge slightly with sponge tip of shadow applicator for a softer more natural look.

Makeup Tip 12) To determine the correct length of eyebrows hold a pencil at the base of the nose, align it to inside corner of eye, then angle it from the base or your nose to outer corner of eye.
This shows where brows should start and finish. To keep tidy, brush with eyebrow brush. Define with light strokes of a pencil OR add a little eyeshadow power on the brush.

Makeup Tip 13) For hygiene it is best not to keep product beyond certain dates....

Foundation 1 year, Lipstick 1 to 2 years, Powder 2 years,
Mascara 3 to 4 months, Shadow/blush 2 years.

Makeup Tip 14) ALWAYS keep brushes clean - wash very regularly in mild natural shampoo and let dry naturally. Sponges should be washed weekly and thrown out every 4 to 5 weeks.

Makeup Tip 15) For ladies over 40 to 50 years of age, simplify your style - in clothes and makeup. Blend more carefully, and make sure foundation is a good match for your skin.

Makeup Tip 16) Make sure your lips have been moisturised, and foundation/powder applied. Outline your shape with a lip pencil in natural or a toning shade to the chosen lipcolour. Apply lipstick with a lipbrush. Then blot by "kissing" a tissue held between the lips, then reapply more colour. Choose colour tones in either warm or cool tones to suit your complexion.

Makeup Tip 17) If you have dark circles under your eyes, dont apply eyeliner untill dark circles are coverd with concealer. or else your eyes will become too dark.
