Whether you are a student, a working professional or even a stay-at-home mom, make-up is something that every woman uses. The problem is that not all women know how to use it properly. Many see styles on TV or in media that look really great and they want to replicate them for themselves but they don’t know how to. Others know only a few basic things and they keep repeating that over and over again and they aren’t able to experiment with new looks and try new things.

Doing make-up is a very simple task but that doesn’t mean it is easy. You need to know what you are doing and you need to have a creative eye to really make the most of it. With a few tips and some guidance, you can be well on your way to making yourself look great even with a few basic things. Here are a few tips that will help you out in any situation.

Use Gel Liners

Eyeliners are one of the first things that girls start to use. They come in a lot of different types and each of them is suited for a specific purpose. Gel liners are one of the most flexible types of eyeliners to use since they are robust, easy to use, and work in a lot of different situations. 

You can still look into other kinds of eyeliners but if you want one solution that will cover nearly every situation then the gel liner is the one to choose. Gel liners are also available in different thicknesses to help you achieve the kind of look you need. Get a few in varying thicknesses to see what works best for your desired look.

Start With A Good Base

Makeup is designed to make you look great but to make the makeup look great you need to give it the right base. In many cases, the makeup doesn’t look the way it should because the underlying skin isn’t in the right condition which means the makeup doesn’t get applied properly no matter how skilled you are. If you look at any beauty tips blog you’ll notice that they place a lot of emphasis on having fresh, healthy skin before you start applying makeup. Similarly, if you go to any professional beautician they will start the makeover with a good facial. Whenever you are looking to do makeup make sure your skin is nice, clean, and thoroughly moisturized. It helps reduce wrinkles, exfoliates the skin, and removes any other particles that may disturb the overall look of the makeup.

Attend To Eyes First

When you start doing your makeup you can easily spoil it and mix things up if you aren’t careful. A good strategy to prevent this is to start with the eyes and then move to other parts of the face. Eye makeup usually has a lot of dark colours and if this touches other parts of your face it can easily smudge and ruin the other makeup.

 You can also use additional products such as eyelash primer to help the makeup on the eyes stay put and not impact the makeup on other areas of your face. Little tricks and tips such as using a spoon when applying mascara also help you keep your face from your eye makeup. However, if you take these precautions and also do your eye makeup before the face it will make life that much easier.


The eyes are incomplete without attention to the eyebrows. Today a lot of ladies are looking to go for micro pigmentation or other nonsurgical procedures to liven up their eyebrows and free themselves of having to manage eyebrows on a daily basis. In reality, you don’t need those procedures if you just know what to do and how to do it properly to keep your eyebrows looking great.

You can use a lot of different markers and pens to achieve the desired look and the only thing you need help with is managing the hair on your eyebrows. Once the hair is properly trimmed and shaped the pens are enough to give you any kind of look you want.
