so I'm sure everyone has a makeup trick/tip :)
mine is if you want to wear a 'bolder' color, like red or a berry but don't want it to pop too much or too bright, put on some chapstick on (make sure a good amount, so it looks shiny) and then you dap some of your lipstick on top of that. makes it looks softer & dewy, not so dry etc... :) that's what I mostly do every single day, eyeliner, black mascara & chapstick + a little bit of red lipstick!

Primer. I love it. It always makes my foundation look more natural because you need to use less product for the same amount of coverage because less is absorbed.
Exfoliate your lips before wearing a bold color. Unlike you, when I wear a red or bright lipstick I love the matt look, and I want it to be dramatic. Problem is I have pretty bad lips, the skin's always peeling or chapped which looks terrible with matt finish so with a toothbrush and some light moisturizer gently exfoliate them until they're smooth.
I have small eyes, so I like to use eyeliner to pull out the inner corners of it - this works especially well for glam, night out looks. Very dramatic and makes your eyes pop even if you're using nothing but eyeliner.
Eyebrows. I always fill mine; I'm not talking massive scouse brows, just a little bit of powder and fixing gel. Works wonders for making a look more finished.
Use good brushes. No matter how good the make up is you're using, if you're applying it wrong, or with bad tools, it's never going to look right.
Make sure you match foundation to the rest of your body, not your face. I know for me, the rest of me is a whole lot more tanned than my face because I fake tan in the winter, or it's more exposed to the sun because I wear make-up on my face still in summer. So the tone I use is usually a couple of shades lighter than my face, but matches my body perfectly.
Contour, contour, contour... I have a really round face and chubby cheeks, so I need it haha.0
