What if this daring action will turn out to be a revelation that will change your makeup routine once and for all?

"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. Think of makeup like a fashion accessory, and be courageous." ~ Molly R. Stern

You also need to learn how to get rid of dark circles. Surely, you can buy an expensive concealer to hide them, but imagine that you wake up next to your boyfriend and you have no makeup on. Deal with dark circles to look adorable and fresh without any makeup.

"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

Makeup tricks are especially useful when applying natural makeup. For example, its light texture does not allow you to use heavy concealers, which are more effective. Thus, your skin tone should be originally glowing and almost flawless to be able to sport natural makeup.
