Tuesday Tip :: 'Ear 'Ear


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

It's Tuesday Tip time again! Gosh, that went fast didn't it?

This week's tip is a beauty one, so all you makeup lovers can do a silent fist pump of joy together. Ahhh unity.


Applying foundation is a fairly basic and necessary beauty step for most people. It hides spots, covers blemishes and evens skin tone. I usually blend right down my neck to prevent chavtastic tide lines and right into the hair line too. Today's tip to you though, is to consider giving your foundation brush a quick swizz over your ears.

Think of all those times when you become a little flushed (hot office boy winks at you, you run for a bus, you say something ridiculous) and you smugly think, "Oh joy unbounded, I have my foundation on so there will be no red cheekedness for me!". Wait, your ears are giving the game away! A quick swipe of foundation and you're sorted.

This also works well if you are going to be photographed a lot (nights out, occasion days, paparazzi...maybe not) as it gives you a professional overall finish.

Do you ever do this?

Toodlepip!

  8. LoOol this made me think of one of Sarah Walker's videos when she points out that we should dust some bronzer over our ears as well to avoid having white ears and a bronzed face :) Great tip Louise, I always love seeing a new post/video of yours <3

  12. I always seem to end up with foundation on my earrings regardless of whether I put foundation on my ears or not! Obviously I'm doing it without even noticing!

  22. The ears are a total giveaway! When I used to do bridal make-up, always made sure the ears were done as when you're 'emotional' they go bright red! More tuesday tips please, ta Louise xxx
