7 Great Tips for Outstanding Makeup


You don't need to be a makeup artist to do gorgeous makeup. All you need is to use some clever tips that will emphasize your natural beauty and hide some flaws.

We at Bright Side have collected the most amazing makeup hacks that will help you look flawless every single day.

Use concealers of different colors for face contouring

Apply your foundation first, then the concealer. The foundation makes your skin tone smoother, and then the concealer accents your facial features. 

Nose contouring

To make your nose look shapely and pretty, it's not necessary to go under the knife. Apply darker concealer along the sides and under the tip of your nose and blend out. 

An easy way to emphasize your eyebrows 

Outline your brows with a pencil: the bottom line first, then the upper one. Now fill in your eyebrows with short lines. 

How to draw wings

To form your arrow, first draw a thin line from the outer corner of the eye towards the brow. Then add one more thin line from almost the middle of the eye, and connect it to the first line. Fill in your arrow. Make sure you don't leave any blank spots.

Brushing the eyelashes

Grab a new toothbrush, and run it through your lashes from root to tip. The bristles will grab the excess mascara for fanned-out, gorgeous lashes.

Full lips 

Moisturize your lips with some lip balm first, then slightly powder the entire lip area. Outline your lip contour with a pencil. Apply a darker lipstick to the corners of the lips and the lighter one to the middle. Shade the two colors a little bit.  

Don’t apply lipstick directly over your dry and unprepared lips. Always prep your lips by exfoliating it first – go over your lips with a lip balm, then scrub it with a wet wipe. After that, go in once more with your lip balm to moisturize your lips. Taking this step before applying your lipstick can really make the difference.
