Makeup and beauty care could be overwhelming - unless you know and understand the little things that matter. Whether you are a beginner who struggles with the foundation or someone with experience in applying makeup, here are a few things about beautiful makeup that every woman should know!
1. Never apply foundation or a concealer as a base for your eyelids. It will definitely cause your makeup to crease.
2. Applying foundation with fingers provides sheer coverage and if you want medium to full coverage, use a brush.
3. Even out your skin tone with a bronzer and make sure that you apply it to your neck, face and chest.
4. When applying blush, make sure that you smile and then start applying on the apple of the cheek.
5. Always ensure that you apply your eyebrow pencil to the upper portion of your eyebrows to give them the right lift.
6. The lipstick must not be too defined at the top corner of the lift. Apply lipstick carefully and never miss the edges.
7. For eye shadows, make sure that the base shadow does not have any shimmer. It should also match the lightest skin tone. Apply darker shadows and blend them properly as you go towards the end of the eye lids.
8. Whenever you apply mascara, make sure that you apply it with slow, even strokes. Start at the root of the lash and go towards the tips with slow strokes.’
Finally, make sure that you patiently apply makeup and never hurry through it. After all, doing it all over again is going to be a daunting task!

Well, there are going to be some glitches and some hiccups, but one thing that you can always count on is your bridal makeup!
Here are a few tips for your wedding day makeup:
Consider the climate
Check the weather – that’s right, makeup in warmer climates is different from that in the cooler places. The products used are different too. An experienced makeup artist will definitely know what kind of makeup and products you need.
Cleanse your face thoroughly
Cleanse your face thoroughly and pat it dry before you apply any makeup so that there are no traces of dirt or oil on your skin.
Play up the makeup for photos
The rule is to apply just a little more makeup to enhance your photos. Cameras will be able to capture your features perfectly with the right kind of makeup.
Eye shadows could help accentuate the beauty of your eyes and go with your overall ‘look’ on your special day.
A simple jet black eye liner perfectly suits any occasion. Jet black eye liners are very common. If you wish to experiment with other colors, make sure that you fix an appointment for trial and take advise from your makeup artist.
It is best to hire a makeup artist and try different kind of looks before you select one for your special day!
