Refresh Your Makeup Skills

If you took a little break from full makeup over the summer, we get it. Who’s wearing foundation at the beach? Soon it’s time to head back to school or into professional mode, so it’s a good time to brush up on your makeup skills. Check out these awesome makeup hacks to polish your technique and keep you looking your best.

Don’t conceal your concealer

If you’ve been putting on your concealer first, and then covering it with foundation, start with foundation first, and then use your concealer to cover any remaining blemishes and under eye circles or discoloration. Foundation will provide a smooth base for your concealer, and will also help to conceal any problem areas, so you’ll use less concealer, and there will be less caking or creasing.

Use a lip scrub

Lipstick not going on smooth? Try using a gentle exfoliating lip scrub once a week to achieve a softer, smoother canvas for perfect application every time.

Don’t forget to blush

Blush doesn’t always get the attention it deserves, but a soft, radiant blush can make all the difference in your overall appearance, making you look brighter, warmer, and livelier. Just add a bit of powder or cream blush on the high points of your cheeks and you’re good to go.

Get lusher lashes

Ready to make an impact? Dust some translucent powder on your lashes between coats of mascara to give your lashes some added volume and length!

DIY lip gloss

Here’s a fun tip: if you have an eyeshadow, blush, or bronzer in powdered form, you can mix it with a little petroleum jelly to make a custom-colored lip gloss you’re sure to love.
