7 Ridiculously Easy Makeup Tips That Will Simplify Your Life

Today we present 7 ridiculously easy makeup tips.

Just as you select different outfits for different occasions, you also want to choose the right makeup for different occasions.

Whether it’s for a day at the office, shopping with friends or a night on the town your makeup choice should be appropriate for the situation or event.

The first thing  people usually notice about your appearance, are your eyes. Eye make-up can really change the way you look, open your eyes and brighten your face.

1. Instantly contour your face by simply swiping a number 3 over your cheeks.

2. Perfect your two-minute cut crease by blending your eyeshadow over a spoon.

5. Get a perfect Cupid’s bow — and a perfect line of color all around the edges of your lips — by using a lip liner to make an “x” on your upper lip.

6. After applying concealer, let it sit on your face for five minutes before blending it in.

These two arm swatches show the difference between freshly applied concealer, and the same concealer after it's sat on skin for five minutes. Waiting to blend means your concealer will go further and cover more without multiple layers. Read more about it here.

7. And make sure to apply your under-eye concealer in a triangle shape — it disguises any dark circles really easily.

If you do it this way, you'll probably only need one layer of concealer. And it will blend into the rest of your makeup super quickly. Don't forget to let it sit on your face for a few minutes before blending, though! Read more here.
