The first thing to do is to remove the old nail polish.

Never be tempted not to. The best way to remove your old polish is with a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover. This works best when you hold the stacked cotton pad over the nail for a minute so it absorbs the polish before wiping it off. This also ensure you wipe off your nail polish neatly without it spilling over to the sides of the nail.

 

Apply Cuticle Cream

Once the old nail polish is off, you should apply cuticle cream. This does wonders for your nails, especially when you lay your hands on the right one.

 

Shape the Nails

You should shape the nails using a nail file. Only use a scissors if you want to really reduce the length of the nails. Best to share with a nail file from edge to centre at an angle. File the tip downwards by holding the nail file vertically.

Buff and Colour

A good buffing of the nails is your next step, then colour. A base coat, 2 coats of colour and a top coat work great if you have the time. Most times, I just buff and apply a clear polish, and I am good to go. It all depends on the look you are going for. Also, it is best to paint from bottom to top vertically and make sure you are using good quality nail polishes to achieve the desired results.

I am not a fan of the quick nail polish drying method, I like to put my foot up and do nothing for a few minutes after painting my nails. However, if I need to do something with my hands, I wait until my nails are touch dry and then I run a cold water tap over them for a few seconds. This method helps the nails dry a lot quicker.

How to use a Blusher

You may notice your face looks a bit bland after applying primer, concealer, foundation and powder. This is because all the imperfections have been evened out to create a uniformed face, which has taken away the hint of healthy colour in your cheeks. This is where the blusher comes in. A good blusher goes a long way in brightening up the face and adding the right amount of colour to your cheeks. I like to apply them sparingly, so it is not so obvious. That look works so great for my face.

Blushers are so handy to have in the makeup bag. They are a good multitasking makeup product, which is amazing for when you need to go away with a little bag of makeup. Blushers can be applied on the eyes, cheeks as well as the lips, with some lip gloss for a light lip look.

Blushers usually come in powder or cream textures. Many now come in gel textures too! I find powder blushers a lot easier to use, which is why I have loads of them on my makeup table. I like to start slow and light and build up if I need more. Like most makeup products, less is more with blushers. I apply my blusher starting from the centre of my cheeks, then over to the edges.

Here are some blusher makeup tips for the shape of your face –

 

Square Face

For the square face, apply from jawline to cheeks for a softer look.

 

Oval Face

When it comes to the oval faces, apply gently on the cheekbones.

 

Round Face

Apply the blusher on the jawline, cheeks and area just above the brow-bone to create an illusion of a slimmer face.

 

Oblong Face

For the oblong face, broaden the pointed chin by applying blusher at the tip and cheeks to sides.

 

Blushers are very makeup products worth having. If you are new to blushers, you can start off experimenting with a safe colour like a rose pink and see how you get on.
