The lip pencil, which is used to show thin lips look plumper, produces a very bad result due to wrong application. Since the lipstick is erased faster than the lip pencil, it is easily noticed that the lips are lined and they loose the attractiveness. Therefore, the color of your lip pencil should have the same shade with your lipstick.
To apply the lip pencil correctly, you should first start from the left corner, line through the center of the lip and do the same starting from the right corner also. Apply same for your lower lip. Then apply the lip pencil on all over your lips. In this way, your lipstick and lip pencil will be erased slowly.
Eyeliner is the make-up product which you should be more careful while applying. It is necessary that the line be smooth and has a proper thickness for a good eye make-up. If it is applied thick, it causes the eyes to look smaller. If there are any fluctuations in the line, it distorts the shapes of the eyes. If you apply the eyeliner to only the upper eye lash line, this will also give a bigger look to your eyes.
Another important subject is to apply the eyeliner as a straight, smooth line starting from center of your eye and follow the lash line. Use a black eye pencil rather than eyeliner. Do not press the eye pencil too much and soften the line with a cotton bud. This will give you a mystical gaze.

The excess blush-on at the brush of should never be removed by blowing. Instead, the excess part should be removed by hitting the brush handle to the index finger.
