  • • As a beauty back-up stain the cheeks and lips before applying the foundation, so even if the makeup wears off during the night, the stained cheeks and lips will continue to glow from underneath.

    • To avoid cakey look don’t powder your face every time you refresh your makeup. As you remove excess moisture, use blotting papers as a replacement for powder to keep make-up intact.

    • While buying a concealer for your skin’s undertones keep in mind: if your skin tends to be reddish, use a green color sorrective stick; if you have a yellow complexion, look for a concealer in shades of lilac or pink; olive or darker skin tones need a peachy or apricot concealer.

    • Cream blushed and cheek stains will give your face a rosy glow that looks natural. Use your fingertips to blend the product into the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion. Not that peaches and golden hues look beautiful on fairer complexions; coral shades look best on medium skin flattering on darker complexions.

    • For contouring, after applying blush or bronzer to your face, lightly swipe a highlighting powder (a frosted off-whit eye shadow will work!) on your cheekbones just above and below the color you’ve applied.

    • Fake a bake by sweeping golden brown bronzing powder along your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. A powder with light-reflective pigment will give an airbrushed glow. Just be careful not to go too dark for your natural skin tone.

    • Smoky eyes aren’t for everyone. If you’re fair skinned, the look can be too much. Instead, opt for nude eye shadow or a pale gold on lids and gray, not black eyeliner.

    • Unsteady hands can make it a challenge to apply liquid eyeliner. To ensure a smooth line, apply your eyeliner by painting little dots along your lash line, as close to the lashes as possible, then connect the dots.

    • The key to lashes with tons of length and fullness is to use two types of mascara. Start with lengthening mascara (bristles are close together to better grip lashes and spread the product from base to tip), then follow up with a thickening mascara, which has dense bristles to build volume.

    • If you want your lip color to last all day, apply lipstick with a lip brush and then add a coat of translucent powder to set the color. Repeat this once or twice and you can be sure your radiant red lips won’t budge.
