4 Quick Ways To Make Your Makeup Look Flawless


Makeup has come a long way (thank God) since I started wearing it at age 12 and I'd like to think I've become a lot, lot better at makeup. Ive learnt all I know about makeup from watching good old youtube for the last 7+ years, seriously there's nothing you cant learn on youtube these days! Ive found quite a few great tips that really work for me over the last couple of years to make your makeup look flawless and to last all day.


Use a damp makeup sponge
I dont know how I did my makeup before I dicovered beauty sponges and I was actually late to that party, I only started using sponges a few months ago. Ive only ever used the Real Techniques ones because I begrudge paying £15 for a Beauty Blender (Im cheap what can I say?!) but its still a really great sponge. I had to throw mine in the bin because I had used it so much and it didn't matter how many times I washed it I just couldn't get it clean and Ive really been missing using one. My makeup definitely doesn't look as good so I need to buy a new one asap!

Finish with a makeup setting spray
This is a step that has changed the overall look of my makeup and I really notice a difference when I dont use one. My all time favourite spray is the All Nighter setting spray by Urban Decay because its the only one Ive found that sprays a fine mist over your face and doesn't leave your makeup blotchy. I really would love to try some other setting sprays ideally that wont cost me and arm and a leg to buy. Apparently NYX do a really great one that affordable so I should probably try that one out.

Add coverage as you go
Dont pile it all on in one go like I use to do. The best way Ive found to get a flawless complexion is to spot conceal or add extra foundation to your problem areas then you dont end up with a cake face. I find that using a damp beauty sponge also stops your makeup from looking as cakey because your blending the makeup into your skin rather than rubbing it on top of your face with a brush if you get me?

Blot your lips
This is my favourite tip I have to do this every time I wear any sort of lipstick, especially liquid lipsticks and thats mainly because I get an awful line of dry skin where my lips meet when my mouth is closed and it looks horrid. But blotting your lips with a tissue or even your finger after you apply lipstick leaves it looking more natural even if you wear a bright or bold colour and your lipstick usually lasts longer so that a 2-in-1 tip right there.

I hope some of these tips help you out. Im no makeup expert but I've definitely done my fair share of testing and trying out different makeup hacks.

  4. These are the tips that I would also give! I've only recently started wetting my beauty sponge and it's crazy how much of a massive difference it gives your foundation and concealer. I wish I had started doing it sooner! I cannot finish my makeup without a few sprays of a setting spray! Love this post.

  6. A makeup sponge has definitely become a staple in my routine, however I never seem to see a difference when I use a setting spray, and I splurged on the Urban Decay one, so might give NYX a try x

  7. Same, I have just now starting to damp my beauty sponge when I do my makeup. I heard of a lot of peoples doing this for a while but I don't see much difference in my makeup when I do it but I am still learning.

  8. I use a Makeup Revolution beauty blender, which is amazing! I still need to start setting my makeup with a setting spray though, I've heard a lot about the NYX one too. Great post!
