Helpful Makeup Tips
by Effy Shapter
For my Maker Project, my group is creating a series of makeup tutorials and makeup tips that will be put together in a video. We will include celebrity makeup tutorials such as: Taylor Swift, Kylie Jenner, and Lupita Nyongo. We will also include our favorite products and helpful tips when applying makeup.
Helpful Makeup Tips:
- Use moisturizer before your foundation
Using Mosturizer before applying your foundation prevents dryness and helps your foundation stay on longer.
- Always use primer before applying eyeshadow
Using a primer on your eyes, makes your eyeshadow stay on for the day and softens your eyelids.
-If you don’t own a primer you can put your foundation, concealer, or moisturizer.
-My favorite eye primer is from elf. The elf eyeshadow primer is about $2 and can be found in any drug or grocery store.
- Use a piece of tape to create the perfect cat eyeliner look
-The winged/cat eyeliner look is very hard to create. Putting pieces of tape on the corner of your eyes help you have even-looking cat eyeliner looks. **Make sure that each piece of tape on each eye, is even.
- How to make your eyes look bigger
Adding a line of white eyeliner in your waterline creates the illusion of bigger eyes.
- Go easy on the black
Too much of black eyemakeup leads to the illusion of smaller eyes and easy smudging. -Instead of using only black, use a brown color eye shadow for a more natural look
-For lighter skin tones: instead of using black eyeliner and mascara, use brown eyeliner and mascara for a more natural look
I’m looking forward to sharing Natalia and I’s video with you. It will be posted on here as soon as we finish it.
