Top 6 Makeup Tips For A Flawless Look
Oh how I love Instagram. Back in the days when I was a teen, learning how to put on makeup was something that you had to learn from your mom. Or a book. And if your mom did not wear makeup then you were really out of luck (as in my case). I have to admit, my makeup game has really improved over the years thanks to videos tutorials from amazing Instagram makeup artists. Here are some of the top makeup artists and their tips to get your to look flawless every single time, courtesy of NewBeauty magazine.

Secret Trick: Make shimmery shadow really shine with setting spray
To help make shimmery eye shadow colors even more amplified, spritz your makeup brush with all-day setting spray before dipping into your shadow. When the brush is slightly damp, it will grab the shimmer better and help it shine and stay put, instead of ending up everywhere on your face.

Secret Trick: Fix makeup mistakes with cactus water
Cactus water on a qtip works wonders for any makeup mistakes, including eyeliner, brow, and lipstick mistakes.

Secret Trick: Tight lining
Most people know about lining the upper lashes with eyeliner. But did you know that tight lining, which involves lining the area right under the upper eye lashes, will make your lashes even fuller?

Secret Trick: Squish your eyes together
To get that edgy “done but undone makeup look” (think Kate Moss), use a very pigmented black kohl pencil to line the inner water lines on the top and bottom of your lashes. Then, squint and squish your eyes to get that natural bleed. Clean up and soften the smudged makeup with a Q-tip.”

Secret Trick: Use two types of highlighter
Use two types of highlighter—a cream first then a powder—to get skin that gleams and glows. The combination really makes the highlighter stand out

Secret Trick: Mist your brushes with rosewater
One way to make sure your skin looks good is to lightly saturate the bristles of your makeup brush with a rosewater tonic and then apply foundation. If you want your skin to have a bit more glow, add a drop of argan oil. Buffing the foundation into the skin with a brush infused with rosewater creates a natural, healthy glow and amazing coverage.”
