Our modern society is replete with ever-changing ideals of what it means to be beautiful and these unrealistic standards can lead to harmful consequences on our self-image. However, I have drawn inspiration from my own personal experiences with beauty and my most iconic role models to assemble a lovely list of my fifteen most timeless and empowering makeup tips that I strongly believe every girl should be aware of.

  1. Although investing in high-end skincare and cosmetic products is completely worthwhile, drugstore alternatives can be equally amazing.
  2. Wash your face with cold — not warm — water before doing your makeup to reduce redness and the amount of concealer you will later need to use.
  3. Instead of purchasing a primer, moisturize your face before appying makeup to help your base products go on more smoothly and last longer.
  4. If a foundation is too matte or heavy, add a moisturizer to it to make it more dewy and sheer.
  5. Use bronzer, blush, and highlighter as the perfect neutral eyeshadows for your skin tone.
  6. Rather than identically copying tutorials, learn how to apply makeup for your unique facial structure and eye shape.
  7. For a natural and professional look, always blend your makeup more than you think you should.
  8. When applying mascara, coat both sides of your upper lashes for even more volume and length.
  9. Do eyeliner before eyeshadow and then retrace it after so that you do not have to worry about making any mistakes.
  10. Everyone looks amazing in red lipstick; you just have to find your correct undertone.
  11. Use dish soap and olive oil to deep clean your makeup brushes and prevent breakouts.
  12. Focus on using makeup to enhance your favorite features rather than concealing your perceived flaws.
  13. Rather than pursuing the current beauty ideal, which is usually unrealistic and will inevitably change, establish your own signature look.
  14. An expertly crafted smokey eye can be very memorable, but no matter how you choose to do your makeup, always radiate confidence because ultimately, that is what people will admire.
  15. You do not have to be perfect; you are beautiful with and without makeup.

I hope you found today’s post helpful! What are your best beauty tips that have stood the test of time?
