Makeup Artists Share the One Tip They've Never Told Another Soul



When a makeup artist reveals a new tip to us mid-application, it's as if we've seen a unicorn in the wild. Those never-before-seen tricks cause us to do a double-take. We treat them as gold, really. Then we write them down and share them with you, dear readers. 

These tricks are industry secrets that make us feel like insiders when they're revealed to us—like we've gained membership to the makeup artists–only club. So in an effort to remain cardholders (and so you, too, can join the club), we asked makeup artists to reveal some of the best tips that they've never told anyone else, and they did not disappoint. Keep scrolling to learn their secrets!
