30 Pro Makeup Tips You've Never Heard Before

Posted by Beauteous Team on

Insiders are spilling their secrets here people, so listen up.

Caution: You're now entering the secret beauty files, a restricted area where the lips are loose and the classified information flows freely.

To share with you the most useful beauty tips, tricks, and secrets possible, we contacted the top makeup artists in our little black book. After separating the wheat from the chaff—or rather, the been-there-done-that from the trying-that-immediately—we present the cream of the crop to you below, organised by cheeks, face, eyes, lips, and brows. (Command-F for easy referencing.)


"Add your favourite blush to the cheeks before you apply foundation for a glow that looks like it's coming from beneath the skin. A bright, warm pink at the apple is perfect for any complexion." —James Vincent, celebrity makeup artist and director of artistry for Ardency Inn

"Apply two shades of blush for the perfect flush of youth. Pink or anything in the red family should be placed on the apple of the cheek; it will give the effect of blood coming to the surface. Peach, coral, or anything in the orange family should be applied to the highest point of the cheekbone; that gives the effect of heat rising. Finish by bringing a matte bronzer to the skin where the sun hits the face (forehead, cheekbone, bridge of the nose, and chin)." —James Vincent, celebrity makeup artist and director of artistry for Ardency Inn

"When you need your blush to stay put for hours on end, layer a gel formula under a powder or bronzer." —Petra Strand, creator of Pixi by Petra

"Halloween is the perfect time to stock up on some unexpected essentials. Fake blood is the ideal blush shade. Add it to the apple of the cheek for any skin tone—it looks like a natural flush of colour coming through the skin." —James Vincent, celebrity makeup artist and director of artistry for Ardency Inn

"Cherry Jell-O makes the perfect bright blush shade. Mix a dash of powder into your favourite moisturiser or balm for a healthy glow." —James Vincent, celebrity makeup artist and director of artistry for Ardency Inn



Mixing foundation with moisturiser is an easy way to lighten your coverage options if you already have a fuller coverage foundation." —Caitlin Wooters, makeup artist

"To make foundation thicker, mix with a touch of loose powder. (Be careful not to add too much or it will cake.)" —Cecilia Muench, creative director of Inglot

"Starbucks napkins and disposable toilet-seat covers work just as well as blotting papers." —Kerry Cole, style director of Becca Cosmetics

"My signature trick is, before completing my look, I always add a light dusting of blush to my crease and around my temples to pull everything together." —Sasha Simler, trainer and makeup artist for Shu Uemura North America

"For a luminous skin effect, mix your foundation with a golden or a pearly white eyeshadow. It gives your complexion a radiance beyond compare." —Nicolas Degennes, creative director of Givenchy beauty

"If you're extremely oily and don't have face primer handy, just apply a little cornstarch to your skin before your foundation." —Niki Metz, director of artistry for Jouer

"My mum, the co-founder of Benefit Cosmetics, used to tell [my sister] and me 'there are no rules when it comes to beauty.' She always took her favourite lipstick shade at the time and used it all over to create an entire makeup look. I remember growing up watching her put a swipe on both her cheeks, both eyelids, her lips, and blending it in, and it instantly looked like she got a makeover." —Annie Ford Danielson, Benefit global beauty authority

"Your complexion products (foundation, concealer, etc.) should match the inside of your arm, not the back of your hand." —Maggie Ford Danielson, Benefit global beauty authority

"As a little girl, I would watch my mother apply egg whites to her face (especially around her eyes) about an hour or two before going out to a special event. She would take one egg, separate it, whisk it until it was frothy, and apply the egg white all over her face and leave it on for 20 minutes. After, she would wash it off with lukewarm water and immediately apply her makeup. The egg white tightens the skin and wrinkles to give you a temporary facelift." —Niki Metz,director of artistry for Jouer

"Here's one for the winter: Take an egg yolk and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, and whip together. Slather all over your face and leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water. This treatment is the most hydrating thing you can do for your skin, and it'll leave your face with the most beautiful glow you have ever seen!" —Niki Metz, director of artistry for Jouer
