Here are a few makeup tips for you!
*Pressed Powder Foundation
Using a cotton wool ball, press down and swirl gently in the powder container and then press the cotton wool ball on areas on your face. This helps it to stay on longer!
With all foundations, make sure you have the right colour for your skin tone.
If you want a thick, even coverage then apply the foundation to your face using a cosmetic sponge.
For an easier but thinner coverage, use your fingertips to blend into your face.
Applying with your fingertips is the best way. Did you know that mousse foundation is actually powder?
Apply dots under your eyes in a crescent-moon shape and dab using the tip of your middle finger. Don't rub - this wipes the concealer off!
Smile! Apply a small amount onto a blusher brush and blend onto your apples in a circular motion.
Another way of applying it so that it doesn't look so dramatic is to dab on TINY amounts using your finger and rub in circular motions to blend.
Use a white eyeliner on your bottom waterline to make your eyes appear bigger.
Using any other colour eyeliner you like, apply just underneath your bottom lashes. Then roll a cotton bud (or q tip I think they're called in America, idk) gently into some petroleum jelly (vaseline) and use it to smudge and blend your eyeliner in. Same technique can be used for applying eyeliner on your eyelids.
ALWAYS use an eyelash curler BEFORE applying mascara. When applying, apply in a zigzag motion. This helps to coat all the lashes. Remember to use an eyelash brush inbetween coats to make your lashes appear more natural.
The key is to exfoliate! Roll a cotton bud in some petroleum jelly (like with the eyeliner!), then roll it in some sugar and swirl gently on your lips for 30 seconds, then wash that off and apply petroleum jelly to your lips.
Hope you found these helpful! :)

Wash your face with a cleanser at night, and in the mornings just rinse with water.
(You need the cleanser at night to remove makeup, but overuse causes skin irritations, breakouts, oily skin)
Moisturize day and night! It will keep your skin healthy and helps your makeup sit on your face better.
Exfoliate 1-2 times a week. Any more than that will dry out and irritate the skin.
Apply moisturizer 5 minutes before applying makeup. (It creates a smooth surface for your makeup)
Using light foundations that say non-comedogenic are best for acne prone skin.
Use a liquid foundation on dry skin and a powder foundation on oily skin.
For blemishes or discolored areas use a concealer.
Try setting your foundation with a light powder.

Always put vaseline on eyelashes and lips before bed. as it re-conditions the eyelashes that was taken from mascara,
