How to Get Prettier Makeup

2 Easy Ways to Prettier-Looking Makeup

Let's face it: from bad brows to too much shimmer, makeup mishaps happen. And while going overboard with the tweezers and glitter might not be a frequent issue, there are a few quick things that you can do on a daily basis to ensure consistently prettier-looking makeup.

  1. Simplicity rules: One of the most common makeup mistakes women make is putting way too much on, explains Clarins's celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff. But in actuality, "the less you do, the more effective," she says. Besides, think of all the time you'll save.
  2. Get more from your makeup: Along the same line, Dubroff recommends scaling down the amount of products used. So instead of layering several items on, think about the ways your products might be able to multitask. A simple eye pencil, when blended and diffused, can be maneuvered to contour and smoke out the eyes, for instance.
