- Perfect your cat eye makeup with a spoon.
To prevent smudges in making your cat eye makeup, use the straight side of the spoon (the handle) to create the line. Apply eyeliner right next to the spoon. To make that all-important swoop, use the curve part of the spoon (the part that you use to scoop food), then, fill in. Your cat eye makeup will look like it was done by a pro.
- Apply blush prior to your face makeup to make your blush look natural.
It is pretty to ogle at a face with natural blush. To create your own natural blush on your cheeks, apply blush on first. Add BB cream or foundation over it. The blush will appear beautifully natural.
- Prevent mascara smears using a flashcard
To avoid mascara smears, put a thick index card or similar card against your top lash line for a smear-free application. Any leftover mascara will mark on the card instead of your eyelid.
