Whether they’re on red carpets or grabbing a salad for lunch, celebrities always seem to have flawless skin. No dark circles under their eyes, no blemishes, and no discoloration. As someone who is very invested in celebrity style, I’m always amazed at how flawless their makeup can look, even hours into an awards show.

Now, of course, celebrities almost always have expert makeup artists. They have professionals around them 24/7 who tell them exactly what products to use and how to properly apply makeup, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to achieve. In fact, there are plenty of celebrity makeup tips you can start doing yourself.

From what products to chose to where to place your makeup, here are a few simple tips that will get you looking flawless in no time.

Skincare Comes First

Rather than spending an arm and a leg on makeup products, spend your money on skincare. The secret to flawless skin isn’t perfect makeup, it’s quality skincare. Invest in a great moisturizer, use Vitamin C on your skin every day, and grab a trusty face oil.

These products will give your skin a nice natural glow that makeup, no matter how great, can’t provide.

Creams Over Powders

Say goodbye to your powder foundations, blushes, and bronzers, and transition to liquids and creams.

Powder makeup may look great right after you’re finished with your makeup, but it can quickly look cakey. Instead, go for liquid foundations and cream products that will give you a more luminous finish. 

Rethink Where You’re Putting Your Makeup 

We were all taught from a young age to put our blush on the apples of our cheeks, right? While that’s a good starting point, that actually has the potential to pull your face down.

Focus on putting your blush along your upper cheekbones, which will work to lift your face up. Likewise, don’t do a big triangle of concealer under your eye. Place your concealer under your eye and move it up towards your eyebrow, again, to help lift your face. 

Cool It on the Setting Powder

It’s tempting to want to set your whole face in powder, especially if you have oily skin, but don’t go overboard. In fact, just set your t-zone in powder. This will keep you from looking too shiny, but it will also prevent you from looking cakey. 

Less Is More

Rather than putting every product under the sun on your face, focus on just a handful. You don’t need to overdo it with eyeshadows or contouring, as it can often look harsh and messy.

For example, if you want to wear fun lipstick, keep your eye makeup as simple as possible. But, if you’re wanting to do a winged eyeliner look, maybe go for a simple lip gloss.
