How To Perfect 4 Kikay Basics

Flawless foundation, lengthy lashes, rosy cheeks, and the perfect manicure--follow our step-by-step guide to mastering these beauty essentials.

1. How To Apply Foundation Flawlessly

There's no need to be intimidated when using liquid foundation. With this M.O., you'll be on your way to sporting glowing, dewy skin ASAP.

Step 1. Apply a centavo-sized drop of foundation to the back of your hand. Dip a damp makeup sponge in it, and dot it onto your cheeks, forehead, and nose.

Step 2. Blend it outward toward your jaw and hairline.

Step 3. Finish by going over any imperfections, like zits, with a concealer.

2. How To Score Fab Lashes

Sporting flirty fringes won't only brighten your eyes, but it's also a quick and easy way to catch your crush's attention. Lengthen your lashes with these tips.

Step 1. Get the best curl by clamping your eyelash curler in three key places: at the base, halfway point, and tips of lashes.

Step 2. Stroke on mascara to keep your fringe flipped. Gently lift your lid with your ring finger and apply the mascara at the roots of your lashes. Wiggle the wand from left to right, making sure most of the product deposit is concentrated at the base and only very little on the tips.

Step 3. Before the mascara dries completely, run a toothcomb over your lashes to remove any clumping. Wait a few seconds before applying the second coat.

3. How To Get Rosy Cheeks

Guys are genetically wired to be attracted to girls with a healthy blush on her cheeks. Our Pinay-friendly trick: Blend your blush and bronzer together for a more natural, sexy flush. Finish off your look with a swipe of lipstick in a flattering hue and you're good to go!

Step 1. Sweep bronzer where the sun would hit your face. Glide it across the top of your forehead, over your cheekbones, and on the tip of your nose.

Step 2. Blush should mimic where you would naturally flush after a run. First, find your apples--they're the spots directly underneath your eyes and two fingers away from your nose. Then, swirl blush on the apples, smiling to accentuate the spots.

4. How To Master Your Manicure

Now that your makeup is done, it's time to get to work on your hands. Antsy about painting your own nails? You no longer have to be with the easy guide below.

Step 1. Get started by cutting and filing your nails to your desired length and shape. Use a nipper to remove hangnails and dry skin on the sides of your nails.

Step 2. Carefully apply a base coat, two thin coats of your polish, and a top coat. Make sure each layer is dry before applying the next one.

Step 3. Clean up the edges by dipping the tip of a cotton bud in nail polish remover. Then, swab it over the borders of your nails to erase excess polish.
