Oh boy do we have a treat for you...
This week we sat down with our ultimate Polly HQ makeup guru - Our amaze Beauty Buyer, April! She’s our go-to for the latest trends, tips, and tricks.. #HOLLA. So we thought we’d ask her for her TOP HACKS 🙏🏼 AKA. The best of the best tips for applying makeup #YASSSS.
HACK #1: UNDER-EYE HIGHLIGHT ON FLEEK
Fresh and awake.. Yes PLZ. I need some of that in my life -- who else is with me!? Well let’s get acquainted with the under-eye highlight technique 💁🏼 Use a LIGHT COLOURED concealer underneath the eyes to get that doe-eyed look ♡ I’ve been obsessing over the new Ofra Sculpting Wand and our trusty L.A. Girl HD PRO light concealers!
April’s quick tip: Apply the concealer in a V-SHAPE underneath the eye + ensure the sides of the V blend up towards your temples. TRUST US… it’ll make your face look more lifted -- So basically, we’ll be doing this EVERY DAY.
HACK #2: SET DAT BAKE
Now baking has become a bit of a craze recently, and we couldn’t help but get on board! #Lifechanging. BUT have you ever tried spraying your makeup blender with setting spray before wiping off the bake? GET ONTO IT. Not only does it create a flawless finish but it helps to set the face even more! YAS. Try this hack with our L.A. Girl Setting Powder + Real Techniques Blender (the best combo!).
Hack #3: FULL LIPS, YAS PLS
Um yes please. Girl, get onto Lip Liner -- This will be your new best friend. To make sure your lipstick doesn’t bleed, line your lips beforehand and VOILA. Amaze lips all night long.
April’s quick tip: Use a lighter lip-shade in the middle of your lips to get fuller-lookin’ lips 🙏🏼
Hack #4: BRUSH YO’ BROWS
Get your brush on. Not just once… EVERY DAY. Even on the days when you don’t brush your hair or wear any makeup, give your brows a quick brush to look a lil’ tidier! It makes a huge difference 🙌🏼 I’m currently lovin’ the look of natural brows, so a combo of brushing with our amaze Bene 24hr Brow Setter is a match made in HEAVEN!
Hack #5: NOT TO PRIME IS A CRIME
NOT TO PRIME IS A CRIME -- Our mantra. Srsly tho.
Get primin’ gal! Not only does it moisturise the skin, but it preps it so that your base goes on FLAWLESSLY!
April’s quick tip: Double up your concealer as your lid primer to make your eyeshadows last all night long! 🙏🏼
