Hi everyone! We all probably scroll through our Instagram feed and wonder how all those beauty gurus do their flattering makeup looks! Today is day 25 of my 30 Day Beauty Blogger Challenge and I'm going to reveal a few makeup secrets that will help you take the perfect Instagram selfie.
Almost every perfect Instagram selfie features a cut crease eye makeup technique and it is one of my favorite makeup techniques. It is perfect for those people, who have small eyelids, but want to make them look bigger. All you need is a sharp eye pencil, small synthetic brush to apply concealer, eyeshadow and clean blending brush for seamless blending. Check out my Cut Crease Eye step by step makeup tutorial and try out this technique yourself.
Dramatic Cat Eyeliner
All those gorgeous Instagram beauty gurus have mastered their eyeliner skills and wear dramatic cat eyeliner in all their pictures. Still struggling to perfect your cat eyeliner? Try out one of my favorite makeup hacks, Bobby Pin Eyeliner and draw perfectly shaped and even wings for your Instagram selfie.
I follow the less is more rule for my everyday makeup looks, but when it comes to Instagram makeup looks, I love wearing long false lashes, even though they aren't comfortable to wear. If you have small or hooded eyelids, like myself, choose false lashes with shorter lashes in the inner eye corners.
Not everyone has plump and juicy lips but makeup was invented for everyone who is dreaming to look like Angelina Jolie and doesn't want to put beauty injections in their lips. The only two things you need to get those sexy lips are lip liner and lipstick. Here is very simple step by step Plump & Juicy lip tutorial for everyone, who needs some extra help and tips.
Highlight & Contouring
Probably the most important thing, that distinguishes Instagram selfie makeup is a very strong contouring game. Try using neutral or cold shades of brown for your contouring, otherwise it might look orange and very unnatural. Blending is key for perfectly beautiful and newt contouring. If you have acne prone skin, try avoiding highlighting and contouring problematic areas.
Of course such makeup usually looks good only on fancy Instagram accounts, in real life, dramatic contouring and highlighting looks like dirt and false lashes irritate eyes and bothers natural eyelashes. Less makeup is always better, let your natural beauty shine and don't cover it with a makeup overload.
That's all for today lovelies, tomorrow is a new day and we are going to talk about Typical Beauty Blogger Problems and what are the basic difficulties every beauty blogger meets on the road.
Lots of love,
