Want To Look Your Best? Try These 30 Makeup Tips
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #30: T-Zone Blotting
Before applying makeup, always wash your face and use blotting papers on your T-zone. The T-zone includes your forehead, nose, and chin—and this is the most oil-prone area on your face. Blot away oil for a fresh start.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #29: Go Prime
Prep your skin for concealer that lasts all day with a primer. Apply it lightly and gently to your face and neck.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #28: Don’t Stop At The Jaw
When applying makeup, it’s easy to want to stop at the face. Instead, blend your foundation onto your neck as well for a more cohesive and natural look.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #27: Concealed Angle
When you apply concealer to touch up makeup, reach for an angled brush. Avoid any other brushes or absorbent applicators. An angled brush will give you the most control over problem areas.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #26: DIY Brush Cleanser
Clean your makeup brushes regularly with an easy, homemade mixture. Simply mix one tablespoon of olive oil with one tablespoon of gentle baby body wash or shampoo. Then rub the brush in the mixture, rinse it in lukewarm water, and let it dry on a clean towel.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #25: Green Secret
If you want to hide red splotches, breakouts, or skin irritation, then get ready to go green. Color-correcting concealer targets specific skin problems. So when it comes to redness, go for a green concealer that will downplay irritation.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #24: Adjust Your Blush
Many of us have picked up the trick of smiling to identify the apples of the cheeks. But applying blush isn’t quite so simple, and it’s different for every face shape. If you have an oval-shaped face, then focus the blush on the side edges of your cheeks, sweeping outward. If you have a round face, then focus the blush on the lower edges of your cheeks, sweeping outward. And if you have a square face, then apply the blush in a circular motion on the center of your cheeks.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #23: Bronzer 101
Bronzer isn’t only for your face. If you’re using it on your face, you’ll want to even out your entire look by applying it to your neck and chest, too. This will ensure that your entire complexion matches naturally.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #22: Duel Tones
Your concealer should be at least one shade lighter than your foundation for a well-blended, natural combination.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #21: Ready, Set, Go
Always use a setting powder immediately after applying foundation. This will lock your makeup down so that it doesn’t smudge throughout the day.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #20: No Magnifier Needed
If you regularly tweeze your eyebrows, then you know how tempting it is to play fixer-upper with a magnifying mirror. But here’s the danger: when you use a magnifying mirror, you risk over-plucking. No one will be inspecting your brows so close to your face. Instead, pluck in a well-lit room with a normal mirror.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #19: Avoid Concealer
Concealer is meant for your face. It is not your eyelids. It’s too heavy to work with eye makeup and can create unsightly lines and creases.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #18: Fill In Your Brows
Whether you want statement brows or just a more complete makeup look, always fill in your brows. Use a pencil to gently line them and add definition.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #17: Select A Shade
When filling in your brows, use a shade that’s about 1 to 2 shades darker than your natural hair color in order to fully accentuate the shape. But if you go for a shade that is 3 or more shades darker, you’ll risk overdoing the definition.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #16: Eye Highlighter
Use a bright, light shade on the inner corner of your eye to add dimension, draw attention, and make your eyes look bigger.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #15: Step-by-Step Eyelids
When applying eyeshadow, many people begin by swiping makeup across the entire eyelid. But this is a big mistake. Always start with the inner corner of the eye with a highlighter. Then move to the center with a medium shade, and to the outer corner with a darker shade.

Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #13: Freeze!
When your pencil eyeliner becomes dull, and it’s time to sharpen, pop it in the freezer for about an hour. This will prevent crumbling when you go to sharpen it. What’s more, it will ensure a more cohesive application.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #12: Curl First
When curling lashes, always do so before you apply mascara. This will gently shape the lashes while they’re still soft to the touch.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #11: Wiggle The Wand
When applying mascara, avoid making smooth strokes. You want to begin at the roots of the lashes and then wiggle the wand left and right as you move it through to the ends. This will evenly coat each lash and add more volume.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #10: Moisturize All Year
It’s easy for lips, just like the rest of your skin, to become cracked or dry. Don’t just moisturize your lips in the winter. But rather, keep them soft and smooth all year long with natural lip balm. Apply it routinely before you go to bed.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #9: Fill Her In!
Lip liner is a misleading term. Because when you use it to prime your lips for a bold lipstick, you actually want to fill in your entire lips. Line them first, and then color them in for an even base.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #8: Lighten Up
Use a slightly lighter shade of lip liner in the center of your lips, and one that matches your lipstick around the edges. This will add dimension to your lips and plump them up.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #7: Go Small
When applying a lip liner, use small, even strokes to fill them in fully. Avoid drawing long, continuous lines, which can create an unwanted stripy effect.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #6: Blend With A Brush
Use a soft brush to blend the two shades of lip liner together for a cohesive base.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #5: Experiment With Color Blends
If you aren’t happy with one tube of lipstick or another, try blending two colors together. Simply use your fingers to apply them and blend them until you find the DIY shade you love.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #4: Blot With A Brush
After you apply lipstick, hold a thin tissue up to your lips and blot them with a soft makeup brush. This will help to remove only the excess without wiping away your perfect application.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #3: Sheer Gloss
Add dimension, moisture, and pop to your lip, regardless of your lip color. Do this with a sheer gloss after you blot the lipstick.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #2: Feeling Blue
If you’re eager to hide yellowed teeth, then choose a lipstick with blue undertones, and avoid any shade with hints of orange. The contrast of blue-based pinks and reds will make your teeth look whiter and brighter.
Crazy-Good Makeup Tip #1: Creamy Solutions
If you have dry skin, go for a softer, creamy lipstick. Anything labeled as matte will only further dry out your lips.
Everyday glam never felt so achievable. With these 30 makeup tips, you can lock down a bulletproof makeup routine that lets your face shine in all the right ways.
