Here are some of Dina Ragheb makeup secrets to try now:
Red or Orange Lipstick As A Corrector
For ladies who have under eye dark circles, orange correctors work like a charm in concealing any uneven tone and brightening up the eye. As an alternative to a corrector, use a light red or orange lipstick and gently tab a little bit of it around the dark circles before applying your concealer to avoid the greyish or blueish tone that the concealer creates without a corrector.
Highlighter for a blur effect
The most common use of highlighter is to bring out certain features like the cheekbones, but surprisingly highlighters can be used all over the complexion for a blurring effect and to hide any skin imperfections. This trick can help you apply less foundation in lighter layer and still get the perfect coverage you want. Opt for a liquid highlighter and use it all over your face before applying the foundation. Make sure the highlighter is very well blended to keep the makeup look natural.
Dry eyelash mascara for your Eyebrows
Instead of tossing away your old mascara, try this trick. You can use your old eyelashes mascara that has dried out to brush your eyebrows. It will leave a very light and natural tint of color and will give a great definition to the shape of the brow without it ending looking blocky.
Light peach eyeshadow for the lips and the cheeks
This multiuse shade is very versatile and is considered a transitional color. You can use a light peach eyeshadow as a blusher that will give your cheeks a natural glow, or you can tab a little bit of it on your lipstick to mattify it and make it stay longer.
Eye pencils as smokey eyes primer
Use the eye pencil as a base for your eyeshadow when creating a smokey eye look. This technique will intensify your eyeshadow and won’t looked washed out. Also a very well sharpened eye pencil can be used to replace an eyeliner. To give depth to your lower lashes, use a sharp eye pencil to define your lashes, and with a cotton swap, gently smudge the line for a softer look.
Foundation and highlighter for the body
To contour, highlight and accentuate certain parts of the body like the beauty bone - the collar bone -, mix foundation and highlighter together and apply on the desired area to illuminate the skin.
Gloss and blusher for glass skin
Glass skin is among the top makeup trends, that gives your skin a luminous and a glowing fresh look. If you ever wondered how, here is the tip; mix your blusher with a little bit of gloss, apply on your cheeks, et voila!
