Top Makeup Illusions Used By The Pros!

Anyone who has ever stepped into a Sephora can relate to me when I say makeup can be a little overwhelming.

Wait, did I say a little…. I meant a lot!

How Times Have Changed

Over the years makeup has really transformed.

Back in the day, we didn’t have all these cool products like unicorn highlighters and beauty blenders to work with.

And most importantly we didn’t have YouTube to learn makeup from.

Basically, if you didn’t have a person in your life to teach you makeup you were out of luck.

Our Gift To You

We have accumulated tons of beauty knowledge over the years and feel it is our responsibility to share them with you!

The best part is that you all of our tips are budget friendly and easy.

We bet you already have everything you need in your makeup bag that can bring your beauty game to a while new level.

What are you waiting for?

Go get your makeup bag, sit in front of your mirror, and let’s begin!

Bigger Lips

By strategically using the products listed below you can make your lips look significantly larger.

What You Need

1) Lip liner

2) Lipstick

3) Shimmery lip gloss.

4) Powder highlighter.


1) Start by filling in your entire lip with lip liner.

2) Take the lip liner and slightly over line your lips to achieve your desired shape.

3) Go on top with your favourite lipstick to set the liner and intensify the color.

4) Apply a little bit of the shimmery lip gloss just on the center of your lips. This will give your lips a pouty yet natural plumping effect.

5) Finish the look by going on top of the lip gloss with a shimmery highlighter.

The last step is optional but believe us when we say it makes a huge difference!

Bonus Tip

If you don’t have a highlighter you can also use a sparkly eye shadow.

Defined Cheekbones

If you have never contoured before you are missing out my friend.

The way it makes your cheeks look so chiselled and defined is miraculous. Truly magic in a compact!!

All you need is a powder or liquid product 2-3 shades darker than your skin tone.

If you go darker than that it will look a lot less natural and be tricky to blend out.

Bonus Tip

You don’t even need to use a traditional contouring product.

You can definitely use a darker foundation/concealer and get almost the exact same effect.

Thicker Lashes

On days when I am not really in the mood to wear makeup I will just pop on some mascara in the car and feel absolutely fabulous.

Don’t worry guys; I only do that while pulled over. Safety first!

Mascara is pretty simple, and us Glamorous Woman like to take things to the next level.

How do we do that?

The answer is false lashes!

They do take some practice but once you get the hang of them, you will be applying them in your sleep.

Dramatic lashes can make you look like 1 million bucks, which is ironic because they can be found at the drugstore.

The actual shape and thickness of the lashes can drastically change the appearance of your eyes.

Bonus Tip

If you are going for a night-time eye look but are not in the mood to apply eye shadow, going for intense lashes and black eyeliner is the perfect substitute.

Healthy Glowy Skin

As we get older everything in our bodies change. Our metabolism slows down, our hair can start to thin, and our skin will age.

There isn’t much we can do to completely stop the aging process, however there are products we can use to slow the process down.

This is where skincare comes in!

Skincare regimes are one of those things that can never end. You can go all out and 10+ products in your skincare regime or you can be more minimal with around 2-4.

This section is dedicated to you newbie skincare users so we are just going to share 3 of our favourite skincare products.


When we get older our skin needs that extra moisture to remain hydrated and youthful looking.

Sometimes simple moisturizers just aren’t enough.

This is where serum will become your best friend.

Well, second best friend, because we dibs being first.

Serums are concentrated and have intense ingredients that skin just love.

The variety of serums out there is endless. You can get hydrating, anti-aging; firming… the list goes on.

We recommend going to your local beauty counter and ask the sales associate what products they recommend that fit your needs.

Face Masks

We all can appreciate a good facial, but they can be very expensive.

Wouldn’t it be easy if you could give your skin a spa-like experience from home for cheap?

Oh wait… you can!

The answer is facemasks. Just like serums, facemasks offer benefits like no other product.

Whether you struggle with acne, discoloration or fine lines, there is a mask for you!

Each mask will have their own instructions on the packaging but most are made to be used 1-2 times a week.

Masks are the perfect product to pull out before date night or a fun even

Lip Plumpers

Getting your lips plumped by your dermatologist is definitely an option, but it can be pricey!

A much more affordable and less permanent route is lip plumping glosses.

Lip plumper’s are incredible because they deliver plumping effects but only last for a few hours.

Benefits of Lip Plumpers

· Very affordable

· Only temporary

· Perfect product to apply before photos!


At the end of the day makeup should be a fun product you use to express yourself, boost your confidence and overall just have fun with.

If you have a “bad” makeup day from time to time, all you need are makeup remover wipes and you are back to your beautiful blank canvas.
