Before you do anything, kindly wash your face well and smother in some moisturizer. Cleaning your face will ensure a smooth surface.

After the prep work, let us work on glamorizing you. Mind you! These makeup tips are not only for the red carpet. You can also modify them a bit for daily wear.

Whether you are going to the beach or not, it is wise to use waterproof products. We call them life-proof makeup because you can go with your tasks without the fear of being brow-less. Or worse, you may end up looking like a drunk raccoon. If you are going swimming, we recommend using a water-resistant foundation.
Even before you hit the beach, you can still get that beachy glow by using a bronzer. Skip those shimmery products because you will end up looking like a hot mess. In this case, you might want to avoid your lip gloss too. We recommend using BB cream instead of the usual foundation because it gives better coverage.
Do not allow anyone to dictate what you can or cannot do. You can glamorize yourself while you binge-watch the Crown. Remember that you are applying makeup for yourself and not for anyone else.
You are already beautiful. Do not allow anyone to tell you otherwise. The makeup is there to intensify your elegance. You should confidently wear your skin. That is what will make you even dazzling.
