You’ve been doing you’re makeup all wrong – makeup artist shares simple tricks that will make you look like a pro

A PROFESSIONAL makeup artist has revealed the simple, but effective tricks of the trade to make your makeup look like it was done by a pro.

Carly Jo, from Ohio, USA, says that she wanted to share her favourite hacks to help enhance the makeup you do yourself.

Taking to her TikTok platform, Carly says that as a professional makeup artist she uses these tricks on both herself and her clients and that these are helpful tips that have been used for decades but many people don't know them.

Posting under the domain @carlyjomakeup she said: "This one is for my oily skin people, take an oil blotting sheet, and pat away any of that excess oil. Then set those areas with a very light veil of translucent powder."

Adding: Removing the excess oil that we don't need, and then powdering those areas, will help create a barrier so your oils, don't come through. Carly also adds that this trick is to be done before makeup and after primer.

"Before you do your brows, take a cotton pad, and micellar water and wipe away any of that skincare. You can see the difference. This will help the product glide on a lot faster because there is no product blocking the area that you are trying to apply."

Carly also debunks the myth that you should use concealer for prepping for eyeshadow.

"Don't use concealer, especially if you have oily eyelids. All concealers have some sort of hydration in them, so if you use that underneath eyeshadow, typically, it is more likely to crease" said Carly.

Adding: "When applying your transition colour, apply it above the eyelid crease, push it into the socket, and into the front of the brow. This is gonna create a soft and natural-looking dimension to the eyes."

Amongst the many tips, Carly also shows how to make it less noticeable that you are wearing false lashes. She suggests you take some black eyeshadow and apply it on the band of the lash

When it comes to getting better results from your concealer, she reveals it is best to let it sit for a while before blending it out.

She also advises: "When using bronzer, opt for a smaller brush rather than using a big fluffy brush. Using a smaller brush will help control where you're using the bronzer rather than using a big fluffy brush and it just being blown out and going everywhere."

Carly's post has reached a whopping 650.7k views and many TikTok users have been quick to comment.

"I was not expecting this many tips in one video. You're a saint"commented one person.

Another added: "Cleaning the brow that was slept on is a great tip. Took me forever to understand why the pencil wasn't going on well."

"LOVE all these tricks, thank you for sharing" commented a third.
