Six products for people who love makeup but can’t do it right

 Products that help the makeup process easier are always welcome for trial (Image: Shutterstock)

After watching several videos online, you will be convinced there is nothing you can’t do with a makeup brush. That is until you try replicating a makeup look only to fail miserably.

At that point you realize why those skills are left to the pros and you wouldn’t bother to put on as much as a little lip gloss before you step out of the house.

Plus, who has that time to blend and match their foundation every single day? A skill that needs hours to master.

That is why any product that will make the work easy and effortless is always welcome. To fake it like a pro, here are some foolproof products that will help you beat your face to the gawds:

  • Eyebrow stencil
  • Your makeup is never complete when your eyebrows are undone. A super helpful tool, this eyebrow stencil will always ensure you have natural and matching eyebrows.

    The plastic that easily lays over your eyebrow, helps you to brush and fill out the area around the cutout leaving behind an almost perfect brow shape in seconds.

  • Acne coverup
  • If you suffer from acne, scars or hyperpigmentation, you must factor in coverage so as to have a flawless result.

    The Bare Minerals broad spectrum foundation for instance covers everything including redness leaving your face looking even toned and bright.

  • Eyeshadow shields
  • Thanks to this clever self-adhesive pad that sits right below your eye it will help you get a serious smokey eye without worrying about any fallout.

    Not only does it save time but it will totally eliminate messy situations with no smudges and racoon eyes that take forever to clean up.

  • Magnetic eyelashes
  • If you fancy long lashes but can’t get over the messy glue part then boy, won’t you be glad to know there is an even better option.

    Better than traditional falsies, magnetic lashes will give you a natural look by attaching via a magnetic eyeliner or placing the strip on your eyelashes and snapping them together.

    Although the application may take some getting used to, the application is hustle free and totally worth the results.

  • Concealer with applicator
  • If you want to skip foundation, coverup your problem areas with a concealer to create a beautiful visage. By using the applicator brush you will be able to target specific areas and get the coverage you need.

    Requiring very little to give you that flawless look, you will have no problems with creasing and laugh lines either.

  • BB cream
  • Short for blemish or beauty balm, this is one product that won’t steer you wrong. Used to moisturize, correct and protect your skin, think of this as a marriage between a foundation and moisturizer.

    This multi-tasker is the perfect product for ladies who don’t have the energy to apply a full-face foundation and don’t fancy the cakey layer foundation leaves behind.

    On top of that it evens out discoloration, conceals blemishes and protects against UVA/B rays.
