In life, there is always room for improvement—and our daily beauty routine is no exception. We made some tweaks after receiving some valuable makeup artist-approved tips on what we should stop doing when applying on makeup. Now, we're ready for something a bit more positive to put into action. The wonderful people who beautify celebs like Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski have numerous makeup application tips that'll guarantee beauty routine success, so we asked them to spill the tea on what they wish we would start doing. Get your brushes and palettes ready.
"Check out your go-to look in every light. From sunlight to office light—even the light of a camera flash—you will be amazed by how different your makeup looks. While doing this, you can see what little adjustments you should make to your 'main face.'" —Joanna Schlip, who's worked with Ellen Pompeo, Laura Linney, and Eva Longoria
"Experiment and get out of your box. If you only wear nude lipsticks, wear a red. If you've never worn purple eyeliner, try it. Too vague? I really mean it. Makeup is a tool to have fun with your look. Once you've corrected whatever bothers you, go for it. Think of makeup like a fashion accessory, and be courageous." —Molly R. Stern, who's worked with Reese Witherspoon, Lily Collins, and Mandy Moore
“Make sure to put on concealer after tinted moisturizer or foundation so it won't wipe the base makeup away.” —Tina Turnbow, who's worked with Keri Russell, Laura Prepon, and Mary Louise Parker
"Applying a face oil to the skin before applying makeup—instead of a makeup primer—will give your skin a natural glow and will make makeup go on so much smoother." —Lina Hanson, who's worked with Brooke Shields, Gillian Anderson, and Portia de Rossi
