5 Easy Makeup Tricks for Flawless & Glowy Skin


Achieving that glowing skin appearance can be easy with great makeup tips and tricks. If you’re not sure how to use makeup to add a bit of glow to your complexion, keep on reading to find out how. There are many skincare products to help you achieve this look, like face moisturizer with glycolic acid. And very popular skin products nowadays are face masks, such as a charcoal mask. So, with our 6 easy makeup tricks, you will have flawless and glowy skin. 

1. Determine Your Exact Foundation Shade

Finding your perfect foundation shade can be challenging. The best way to determine your shade is to swatch along the jawline down to the neck and see which one disappears perfectly. Also, skin isn’t just one color. So, buying two shades will leave you with a more natural look. Keep in mind that one shade doesn’t work during summer and during winter. Since you naturally get paler during winter and tan during summer. 

You’ve found the right shade for your skin complexion, and now you should know the steps for applying foundation, like cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. There are different brushes and techniques whether you’re using liquid or powder foundation. So, make sure to do your research and avoid any potential mistakes. 

2. Skincare As a Makeup Primer

Before you start applying makeup to your face, it’s best to start off with a healthy base to ensure a great complexion. Some makeup artists are not using face primers, instead, they just moisturize the skin to ensure a glowy face. Although oil-blocking primers seem like a great idea for flawless skin, a lot of people are just choosing the basic skincare routine as a prep. 

Another option for flawless skin is an exfoliating peel pad. This peel pad will get rid of your dead skin and leave you with a glow. However, be careful and wear sunscreen since exfoliating peels can make your skin photosensitive. If you wake up with a puffy face, you can use a face roller. Go over cheekbones, jawline, and the orbital, and your skin will be soft and depuffed

3. Glow The Natural Way

The key to glowy and fresh-looking skin is not to overdo it. Be mindful of where you apply a highlighter. A nice highlight should sit on top of the nose bridge, a bit on the cheeks, and sometimes even on the jawline. With these highlighter tips, you will have a fresh look. Also, you can spray a face mist on your face and get that extra shine. You can find many various inspirations for a spring glowy makeup look, mix and match different eyeshadows and have fun with your makeup. 

5. Get The Most Out of Your Concealer

Investing in a great concealer, or two is definitely worth it. A good quality concealer can double as a foundation if only applied sparingly. Also, they can cover up any acne or dark circles you have. If you want a concealer to stay longer on your skin, a great tip is to use an eye primer before it. Just put a little eye primer on the spot you want to cover, wait for it to dry, and then apply concealer. 

Another great tip for covering those dark circles is to use a brighter shade. However, make sure that the undereye area blends in with the skin. Peachy concealers are perfect for people with pale skin. People with olive or deep skin tones should choose an orange or golden shade to prevent any blue or purple zones. 

Same as with foundation, one concealer isn’t going to cover your whole face. So having two shades that you can mix or use separately on different areas on your face is the best way to have a natural-looking, glowy skin. 

6. Lip Scrub

To have your lips in perfect shape, give them a gentle scrub to remove away the dead skin cells. Having a smooth base is essential for a soft and perfect look. Define your cupid’s bow with a lip liner for a complete look. 

With these 5 makeup easy tricks, you will create a flawless and glowy look.
