Makeup Artists’ Secrets: Pro Tips For A Professional Finish

We all know that applying makeup properly can be difficult. Thankfully, there are a few makeup artists’ secrets that can help you get a professional look every time. Here are some of their pro tips for creating a beautiful finished look.

Choose the Right Foundation

The first step in achieving a professional finish is to make sure you choose the right foundation for your skin type. Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone exactly – you should be able to blend it perfectly without any harsh lines. Also, make sure to apply your foundation correctly. Start at your forehead and work your way down your face, blending as you go. Finish with a survey light dusting of powder.

The Right Tools Are Essential

You don’t have to buy expensive brushes and sponges – just make sure you have the right tools for the job. Brushes and sponges provide a smoother application for eyeshadow and blush, and create a blended look for your face. Invest in a good set of brushes and you’ll be able to create a professional finish with ease.

Take Your Time

Rushing your makeup is one of the quickest ways to end up with a smudged look. Spend a few extra minutes applying your makeup slowly and carefully. Be sure to take breaks in between each step and give yourself time to check the overall look before you move on. Your finished look will be all the better for it!

Ensure Even Coverage

When you’re applying your makeup, use your blending tools to ensure even coverage. This will help to create a more natural look and it will also avoid the dreaded ‘cakey’ look. Pay special attention to the areas around the eyes, nose and corners of the mouth, where uneven coverage is most likely to occur.

Finish With a Setting Spray

Setting spray is a makeup artist’s best friend and it’s an important part of achieving a professional finish. It will help your makeup last longer and keep it in place. Finish with a light spritz of setting spray and you’re ready for the day.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to create a professional finished look with ease. Invest in the right tools, take your time, and finish with a setting spray – and you’ll be ready to go!
