Makeup Tip #2

Now that it's spring and summer is coming up we need to protect our skin with a sunscreen.

There are foundations available that already have SPF in it for example the MAC foundations.

If you can't afford a foundation With SPF, because they're usually expensive then heres a tip:

Get your foundation and a face sunscreen and mix equal parts together in your hand or container and apply to face or you can use the sunscreen as a base and then the foundation.

Most importantly protect your skin! 

Makeup Tip #1

For the beginners:

before applying any makeup make sure you use

a base/primer.

Apply before adding foundation and eyeshadow.

The face and eye primers are separate.

if you dont have a face primer then just apply lotion before you apply your makeup, although it might not give you the same results as with an actual primer.

The point of an eyeshadow base is too make it last longer, obtain more vibrant color and prevent creasing.

here are a few options

Urban Decay primer potion, MAC's paint pots, and Too Faced Shadow Insurance are my most favorite.

Drugstore brand: Loreal decrease is the best drugstore option.

The new urban decay primer potion, now has a new wand(slightly bent) for more precise application. It garuantees lasting color, vibrant color, and NO creasing.

It comes in two shades

primer potion(purple bottle): Ultra sheer Nude

Sin primer potion(gold bottle): champagne color
