2. Does your makeup look patchy? Always apply a moisturizer before starting your makeup. Hydrated skin helps in smooth blending of foundation and avoid patchiness.
3. Balance your shimmers. If you are going for glossy lips opt for a subtle eye makeup or if you are in for a shimmery eye makeup opt for a nude or natural matte lip color. Never highlight both the features unless you want to look like this.
