Bonus trick: You can do the same thing with liquid liner and a cat eye.

Use a felt-tip liquid liner pen to dot your top lash line, then fill in the dots with liner and finish with a pointed cat eye flick.

2. Make a DIY ~summer~ tinted moisturizer by mixing in 2-3 drops of foundation to your moisturizer with SPF.

This way, you don't have to buy a lighter coverage makeup for summer AND you'll get sun protection. Win-win.

3. Learn about brush volume, aka how vigorously or gently an eyeshadow brush will blend a pigment, by practicing your brush skills on a flat surface before you apply makeup onto your eyes.

5. Get rid of eyeshadow fallout without messing up your makeup by using concealer and a Q-tip.

Once your eye makeup is done, apply a few small dabs of concealer over any eyeshadow that's fallen below your eyes and onto your face. Then, gently roll a Q-tip over the concealer to clean up the mess. If you need further coverage, you can apply a small amount of fresh foundation in the area with a brush.

7. Try using a makeup setting spray to keep your makeup from smudging, melting, or smearing all day long.
