Beauty: The one tip that will save you time and frustration

Ladies, almost all of us were taught to put on makeup the same way - foundation and powder, then we do our eyes, add some blush, and finish with some gloss or lipstick. It's also the way I learned to do it in makeup school.

We love our makeup, and we each have our own makeup routines, but I hear one common complaint when I am teaching application to a client or class: 
"It drives me crazy when my eyeshadow falls onto my cheekbones, and it's a pain to fix it!"

Yep, it sure is. Luckily, I have a simple trick that will make your life easier.

Some of you may already know and use the most popular tricks out there. I have seen many easy and innovative ideas.

There's the option of holding a tissue under your eye as you apply your shadow. Works like a charm.

Some people put a bit of loose powder under the eye, and then sweep away any eyeshadow fall out after application. This doesn't work well for me, but I know people who swear by it.
Lately, I have been seeing cosmetics companies selling a special implement to hold under your eye to catch fall out. Genius idea. Elf cosmetics sells one for super cheap.

My method is a bit different, but I have been doing it forever, and everyone I tell about it uses it and loves it.

Simply put your foundation on after you apply shadow, liner and mascara. Do your eyes first. That way, you can spend some time perfecting your eyes, blend, and not have to worry about fall out. Once your eyes are finished you can use a baby wipe to clean up under the eyes, then continue on with your foundation, powder, blush, and so on.

It really couldn't be any easier. Try it, and let me know how it works for you!
