Hey Bombshell Babes,
We're here to provide only the best for you, and that's why we've researched and gathered only the most valuable tips from professionals to help you!..
1. BLEND TO THE BROW
Ever wonder why your makeup look, just doesn't look complete? Blend to the brow is the answer!! Don't be afraid to go higher with the blending, we believe in you!
2. WET THE SPONGE
Everyone is different, thus coming with different preferences. However, we can confidently say wetting your blender with warm water allows the sponge to swell and won't absorb your makeup but create an even blend into your pores.
3. EYE MAKEUP THEN FACE MAKEUP
Yet again, each individual comes with different preferences, we've (and plenty of other makeup artists) have always found it easier to do eyes first as It allows for mess-ups and won't ruin your coverage, (a girls worse nightmare!)
4. TRUST THE PROCESS
Just like any art; acrylic on canvas, or foundation on skin, trusting the process is always key. Makeup takes not only practice but patience. Time will only tell, so don't give up, babe!
5. DON'T LOSE YOURSELF IN THE PROCESS
Girl, it's okay to breakdown mid makeup and it's okay to not be ecstatic with your outcome but it's not okay to run yourself too low for the 'perfect' makeup look. Keep in mind that it's only makeup and with the help of micellar water and a makeup pad, you'll be back on the road in no time!
6. USE THE RIGHT BRUSH
To make life harder but your makeup better; there are a variety of brush types available for any look. It's just figuring out which brush for what, right? We understand it's all about the right brush and that's why we're here to help.

7. NOT TO PRIME IS A CRIME
Yes, priming is ALWAYS key, so don't forget it! Why? primer sets the base of makeup, giving you the perfect surface to work your magic on. Not only that, but it makes your makeup last longer!
8. DOWN TO THE NECK
Unlike applying eyeshadow UP to the brow, apply your foundation DOWN to the neck and ears. This is to ensure your makeup matches and blends with no lines.
9. MATCH YOUR FOUNDATION CORRECTLY
Making mistakes is always part of learning, and a commonly made mistake is matching foundation to either the neck or face rather than the chest. The chest is the best as it is the part that hits the sun the most!
10. STEP BACK... LITERALLY
You're half way through your full glammed out look, great!.. right? it's not so great if you haven't taken a step back to look at your overall look. Because who wants just one perfect eye?!
11. TAKE YOUR TIME
We get it, time is money and on some occasions; you just don't have time to spare. However, remember; a perfect makeup outcome; is a happy girl! We believe in you!
