Beauty gurus on social media platforms have made makeup application so versatile and easy not only for beginners, but makeup lovers in general. I, myself, have learnt a lot of what I do in my makeup routine from beauty bloggers and makeup artists on YouTube and Instagram.
Let me share some of the best tips and tricks that I learnt from said artists in the hope that they will help some of you, too.
Set your primer with powder- Jackie Aina
Yes. Setting primers is a thing. Put your primer on as you normally would and set it with powder like you would set your makeup. According to the gorgeous African-American makeup artist, this helps the makeup stay in place and keeps your skin oil-free for a very long time.

The beauty-with-brains makeup artist from Pakistan taught me that you can use the back of your eye brush and dip it in your stick foundation to line your lower waterline and it. Is. Genius! It is more visible and stays put longer than a lot of waterline pencils I’ve used. And trust me, I’ve used a lot!

Along with several other beauty tips and tricks the Dubai-based makeup artist and entrepreneur, Huda Kattan, taught me a trick that I have probably used the most out of all of them. Adding a highlighter shade to the inner corners of your eyes will make you look like you have had your coffee and 8 hours of sleep. It instantly makes your eyes look brighter and more open.

Korean makeup artist Pony suggests that applying your concealer on your sponge and then on the skin makes the whole process faster, easier and more natural-looking and I agree. The sponge not only absorbs the extra product to prevent cakey makeup, but also gives good coverage.
