We can all agree that makeup is not an easy thing to master. No one person can compare to the hired team of makeup professionals that work on celebrities or the famous beauty bloggers we see on YouTube. But one thing is for certain: there are ways to achieve a flawless look by using certain products and by following these beauty tips.

1. Always wash and moisturize

The skin on your face is very delicate compared to the rest of your body. Taking care of your face creates a pretty canvas for your makeup artwork. Be sure to consistenly exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize your skin (and never sleep with makeup on!).

2. Use primer

The majority of women skip this easy step. Whether you want a spray on primer or a creamy lotion type, putting on some form of primer will create a perfect base for your foundation to stick to.

3. Lightly contour

Just a light amount of toned powder around your cheekbones will make a world of a difference. Not only will it slim your face, but contouring will add dimension to the features you want to highlight.

4. Brush the brow

If you are anything like me then you have the pleasure of dealing with thin eye brows. The simple act of just brushing your brows in an upward motion can give your face a more sharp and edgy effect. For added emphasis, darken your brows with a brow pencil or powder.

5. Mascara

Always, always, always use mascara. Mascara will always be my holy grail for makeup look. Fuller, darker lashes makes you seem effortlessly beautiful without actually trying too hard.

6. Give your lips some color

If you want to add a little spark or fire to the flawless face, then give your lips some love. A lip stain will give an easy tint while lipstick creates some drama. Lipliner can provide a bit of a pout if you don't overdue it. The options are limitless.

7. Use a setting spray

One of the most important things you could possibly do to make your artistic creation last all day long is to add a setting spray. Spritz it on once you finish your makeup, and enjoy a face that stays flawlessly in place all day long.
