Tips & Tricks
1. If you’re covering a large area use a makeup sponge not a brush, you will save time and get a beautiful thin layer which will feel great against your skin.
2. Thin layers of makeup are a must! If you apply thick layers you will firstly waste all your body paint, thick layers may crack and you will waste time waiting for your base layer to dry.
3. Make sure you have plenty of tissues and cotton buds to wipe off any excess paint which has been accidently applied too thick.
4. Constantly clean your brushes to stop colors from mixing and from spreading bacteria.
