BEAUTY HOOKED’S PRO TIPS ON PERFECT MAKEUP FINISH:

  1. Selecting a moisturizer based on your skin type is extremely important! If your skin is oily, using a thick creamy and dense moisturizer will make your makeup application a nightmare!
  2. If you’ve got dry skin, use a thick layer of moisturizer on your skin as a mask. Leave it on your skin for a few minutes, your skin will absorb the moisturizer quickly where it’s extremely dry from and get hydrated perfectly! Whatever moisturizer is left on the skin, blend it in before starting with makeup application!
  3. If you feel like your concealer doesn’t cover enough and the blender “over blends” your concealer, use your ring finger and press the concealer in. The heat in your fingers help your concealer blend perfectly, it reduces caky texture and also helps to give you a great coverage as your fingers, unlike blenders don’t absorb the product!
  4. Be gentle! When applying bronzer, blush & highlighter on top of your foundation and concealer, if you push the brush too much on your skin while blending these products, you remove the hard work you’ve done underneath.

We truly hope you enjoyed it and you learned not only the technique but also what will suit you the most! Pair it up with the best basic eyeshadow guide and you’ve got yourself the BEST eye makeup! Stay Hooked, there’s so much more to come your way 💕
