Makeup tips every girl should know

We all wear makeup, whether it be for a special occasion or on an everyday basis like me and it can be such a hassle , particularly if you don't know what you should use. I have decided today to make a list of some makeup "tips and tricks" that will hopefully help anyone who needs it and make putting your makeup on fun again, rather than the thing you dread doing before you go out.

  1. Put your eyeshadow on first- It is the worst thing ever when you have put your foundation on and specks of eyeshadow fall. You are torn between leaving the specks under your eyes or wiping off some of your foundation. But why make the decision, if you do your eyeshadow first you can wipe away any fall down without worrying about having patchy foundation. Problem solved!
  2. Always put a loose/pressed powder on top of your foundation- No one likes having a shiny face, especially when your going on a night out or working all day. Too many people forget this step when putting on makeup, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? Putting power on sets all your makeup and helps it stay on so at the end of the day/night your face doesn't look like a greasy patchy mess.
  3. Don't skip the primer- Firstly primer is not, I repeat NOT a moisturiser. Primer is like a glue for your makeup, it smooths out your skin and can also stop your face shining. So it is a must if you don't want your face to come off.
  4. Don't sleep with your makeup on- This is probably the most important tip I can give you. I can already hear some of you gasp at the thought of this, but yes, some people still sleep with a full face of makeup on. This is so bad for your skin because it blocks your pores. Your skin won't be able to breathe and you will break out in spots. So please keep a packet of makeup removal wipes close to your bed in case of any late nights.

I really hope this post helped you and if you have any tips of your own I would love to hear about them in the comments.

Much love Toni xoxo
