20 Makeup Tips That’ll Help You In Your Makeup

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a total newbie, makeup tips are always helpful. It is much easier to make the process of creating a cat-eye or contour 100 times smoother if you know these hacks. In the spirit of sharing is caring, I have rounded up the 21 best makeup tips and tricks of all time, including when (and where) to use concealer, how to finally perfect your wing eyeliner, and much more. Keep scrolling to learn how to use the one product (err, products?) you never learned how to use it.

1. Apply your foundation before concealer (Makeup Tips)

The easiest way to level up your makeup routine is to apply foundation before concealer. If you start with a layer of foundation, you will minimize any redness or discoloration. It’s like creating a smooth base for the rest of your makeup. Then you can use your concealer to treat any zits or redness, and you will end up using way less product. What’s more? Caking and creasing can be prevented by applying foundation before concealer.

2. Maintain your eyebrows with a spoolie brush

I use a spoolie brush (aka those little mascara wands) on busy days when I don’t have time to fill in my eyebrows. Whenever I have time for powders, gels, and pencils, I still prepare my brows with my spoolie-it only takes 10 seconds, and I can make sure each brow hair is in the right place before I apply my products.

You know when you apply lipstick and it doesn’t go on smoothly? Prepare your lips with a gentle lip scrub (I like the Beauty Bakerie Sugar Lip Scrub or the KNC Beauty Lip Scrub) – the physical exfoliation will help buff away any dry skin sitting on top of your lips, leaving you with a smoother, softer canvas for your products. Keep in mind: Lip scrubs should only be Lip should be applied once a week at most-any more and you will risk irritation (aka the opposite vibe you want).

4. Don’t sleep on blush

It might seem like an obvious step in your makeup routine, but blush is one of the most underrated products in the world. With just a couple of sweeps of cream or powder blush along your cheekbones, your look will be instantly brighter and warmer. Makeup artist Lakeisha Dale told Cosmo that she uses blush on all her clients—it’s a great way to give the skin a fresh, rejuvenated look, while at the same time, adding the perfect amount of depth to the face. And, no, that doesn’t mean you have to pick a bright-pink blush—try something glowy and soft, like one of the picks below.

5. Melt your pencil liner to help it glide

Warming up creamier makeup products helps them blend better. In other words, if your kohl eyeliner pencil skips or tugs on your eyelid or requires multiple coats to provide decent color payoff, melt it down slightly before you apply it. If you hold the tip of your kohl liner under a lighter for a second or until it gets tacky, let it cool slightly (swatch it on your hand first to make sure it’s not too hot), then watch the consistency change.

6. Make your eyeshadow pop with white eyeliner

A white eyeliner pencil over your entire eyelid will make a sheer or less pigmented eyeshadow appear more vibrant. Apply your eyeshadow right on top. Any eyeshadow shade will be intensified and made to pop with the opaque coverage provided by the white liner.

7. Outline your cat eye

When it comes to nailing the winged eyeliner look (and hi, same, I feel you), draw the outline first and then fill it in. First, create the bottom of your cat’s eye by extending a line beyond your lower lash line. You should then decide on the thickness of your wing, and trace the top line from the endpoint of your flick to your upper lash line. As soon as you have the shape mapped out on both sides and everything looks symmetrical, fill in the spaces.

8. Use a spoon as a stencil for winged liner

Draw your cat eye with a spoon if you can’t do it freehand. Use it as a stencil. Holding the stem of a spoon against the outer corner As the first step to creating your cat eye, use liquid eyeliner to draw a straight line around your eye. Then, flip the spoon over so it’s hugging your eyelid, and use the rounded outer edge to create a winged effect.

9. Hack a smoky eye with a hashtag

Smoky eyes can go from sultry to sloppy very quickly if you don’t know what you’re doing. Use a creamy eyeliner to draw a slanted hashtag symbol on the outer third of your eyelid, then smudge it out with a sponge or brush. It will not only ensure that both eyes are symmetrical, but it will also prevent you from going overboard with the eyeliner

10. Use a spoon as a mascara shield

Make your eyeshadow look perfect, and then swipe on mascara and smudge it all. How do you fix it? Apply your mascara normally, then hold a spoon against your eyelid for a few seconds. When you sweep the mascara wand against your lashes and the spoon, the residue will coat the spoon rather than your skin. Brilliant.

11. Revive mascara with saline solution

Word of advice: Only use a tube of mascara for three months, max. Beyond that point, it can collect bacteria and lead to eye infections and other unfortunate things you wouldn’t want to search on Google Images. But if your mascara annoyingly dries up within those first three months, add a couple of drops of saline solution into the flaky formula to get it back to its smooth consistency.

12. Heat your eyelash curler with a hairdryer

By blowing hot air on your eyelash curler, you can make your own heated lash curler. Your lashes will curl faster and maintain their shape for a longer period of time with the added heat. Use a blow dryer to heat up your lash curler, then wait for it to cool. Warm but still slightly cooled (test it on the inside of your arm so you don’t burn your eyelid), then clamp down on your lashes to curl them.

13. Plump your lashes with translucent powder

Between coats of mascara, dust some translucent setting powder on your lashes to plump them up. The translucent powder Maintains the mascara’s grip between coats, leaving you with more voluminous, fuller lashes.

14. Apply eyelash glue with a bobby pin

If you have trouble applying eyelash glue evenly and end up with messy fake lashes, try this makeup tip: Use the tip of a clean bobby pin to apply a few dots of glue and spread it evenly. Let the glue dry for a few seconds before applying the lashes.

15. Set your lip color with a tissue and powder

To prevent lip color from bleeding or fading for hours, swipe on your shade, lay a tissue over your mouth, and dust translucent powder over the top. While this process may seem extra, its payoff is worth 100 percent. Even the translucent powder is worth it. While the tissue might alter your lip color, it will protect it from dulling or lightning.

16. Mix your own lip color with petroleum jelly

Using a spoon, mix the loose pigments of your favorite eyeshadow with a little petroleum jelly (Vaseline works well) and swipe it on your lips. Wow. Your own lip gloss. The best makeup tip ever.

17. Define your Cupid’s bow with an “x”


Use a lip liner in the same shade as your lipstick to make an “X” that lines up with your natural lip line. Continue applying lipstick as you normally would finish your look by filling in the bottom three sections of the “X”.

18. Conceal under your eyes with a triangle shape

Try applying your concealer in a triangular shape if you want to brighten your under-eye area. Draw a triangle with the base under your lash line and the tip pointing up toward your cheek. By doing so, redness and shadows under the eyes will be completely concealed, creating the illusion of a brighter under-eye area.

19. Use a brush handle as a contour guide

Faces are shaped differently, so where your BFF contours may not be the best place for you. If you want to know where you should dust your bronzer or contour powder, roll a pencil You can use a pen, or makeup brush handle right below your cheekbone (directly under the bone) to find the right angle for your face. If you’ve found the right placement, dust some bronzer on top with a contouring brush, then blend the color out to soften it.

20. Map your contours with a brow pencil

You don’t have a cream contour stick? No worries. After you’ve applied your foundation, mark the areas you want to contour — the hollows under your cheekbones, the temples, along your hairline, jawline, the sides of your nose, the tip of your nose, and the crease of your eyes — with a deeply colored eyebrow gel pencil. You read that right. Brow gel pencils are extremely concentrated, yet very smudge-able, making them ideal for contouring.
