Start with primer
Primer is essential for uneven skin that is bumpy or patchy,
it will smooth out all the rough spots to make an even base. Primer also helps
to keep your makeup artistry on all day long. Don’t forget to prime your lids
as well; you don’t want that shadow moving up to your brows.

Go for lightweight
Hot for 2014? Skin is totally in. No more caked-on
foundation. Try a tinted moisturizer to make your face glow and even out your skin
tone. If you need a bit more coverage, apply a BB cream. This is definitely not
a full coverage product—let your skin breathe!

Find a perfect match
If you absolutely need to cover those blemishes, concealer will do the trick. Find a shade to match your skin tone exactly for acne or blemishes. To apply, dot it on and press in with your finger. To cover dark circles, grab a concealer one shade lighter than your skin tone. This helps to brighten up the dark area and made you look well rested and awake.

Make friends with blush
Skip the bronzer in favor of light pink blush that mimics
your natural flush for a so-pretty glow. Ed. Tip: Always remember that powder
goes over any liquid. If you do the opposite, your makeup can end up in a thick
chalky mess. For our dry skin girls out there, try a cream blush to avoid those
patchy areas that powder can leave.

Ditch your old, almost-used-up eye shadow kits and look for
something new to get out of your makeup rut. Our fave new hue? Pat a gold
shadow all over the lid and use a light brown color to smudge it out for everyday.
Trendsetters can play with deep navy blues and grey: Use a navy blue big liner
pencil and a crease brush to create a smoky eye look, pop some shimmery grey or
silver shadow on the inner corners of your lids and you’re set.

Let go of the liner
Revamp your old liner look by skipping that harsh black liner on the bottom waterline. Swap it out your trusty black for a dark brown or purple, applying above your eyelashes and smudging it out for an effortless, bold look. By using browns and purples you will play up your eye color while still making your eyes pop.

A major eyelash tip is to always curl your lashes first before applying anything. When it
comes to mascaras, be sure to replace your favorite when it starts to make your
lashes look clumpy—and swap out black for dark brown. Spidery, thick, clumpy
lashes are out the door while enhancing your beauty with long natural looking
lashes is totally in.
