Wear a Nude Lip that suits you, not what what suits other people.
We know just how much you want to go out and splurge on all the high end nude lip colors that your favorite celebrities wear, but this is something to avoid! Lipsticks are something you need to shop around for! Make sure you do a lot of swatches because everyone’s complexion is different, and different lip colors match different people. Before you go out and buy that YSL Nude color, head in-store and swatch it on your skin before you spend all that money. You might hate the product on your skin, but you might just fall in love – you never know.

Blend, then blend some more.
It’s in the girl bible to always blend when it comes to applying makeup. It’s still a little cringe-worthy when makeup is visibly un-blended and you just wanna help a girl out! When applying makeup onto that beautiful face of yours, whether it’s eyeshadow or foundation, blend in circular motions. You can also try out blending sponges if you’re feeling a little more creative.

A little lippy goes a long way.
Whether it’s your fiercest dark lip, your brightest pink or a some gloss, a little lip love makes you look a little more ‘put together’, especially on your off-duty days when makeup is just not necessary.

Don’t do your makeup in bad light.
If there was one beauty lesson that everybody should learn from the very first day makeup touches their face, it’s that they should never, ever do a full face of makeup in bad light. Bad light is basically anything too dark or even too bright. To achieve good light, sit by the window and try to let the natural light hit your face while you do your makeup. This helps you to get a flawlessly made up face every time.
