How to Apply Makeup

Nothing beats the natural beauty we have. But it’s nicer if we can add a touch of color to highlight our best areas. If you want to have that natural look whenever you step out of your door, then you must read this article. We’re going to share some tips on how to achieve it.

It’s always best to start with a clean face. Remove any makeup if you slept last night with a makeup on your face. You may use makeup remover or mild baby oil. You can also wash your face earlier before. If you try to put on makeup over old makeup, it will be cakey and will look more unnatural. After washing your face, put on some moisturizer to keep skin from drying. If you have some blemishes, pick up your concealer and dab some of it, pat it, but don’t rub, until it’s well blended. Cover face with liquid foundation. Choose color that is close to your skin tone. You may use your finger tips and apply it on upward stroke (forehead and downward stroke (chin). Make sure that you extend it on your jaw line so it will not look like you’re wearing a mask. If you have tinted moisturizer on hand, you may use it and skip the foundation. Put on some blusher to give you a defined look, or if you want a sun-kissed tone, use bronzer. Apply in on your apples, the circles that form when you try to smile. Do it in upward stroke. If you want to add some contour and depth, use highlighter. You want to look natural, skip eye shadow. But if you can’t go out without it, try using shades of brown.

Povezana slikaTip: the eye shade that you’re going to wear should be in contrast with the color of your eye. Next thing to work on is your brows. If you’re brows are already well defined, then good for you. Eyebrows are the most hard to make look more natural. It’s best to use brown eyebrow pencil. Choose good quality so it won’t smudge. Curl your lashes. You may heat up your curler for 3 seconds using hair blower because it holds curl better. Just make sure to check before using, it may be too hot. Use mascara to make lashes longer. Work on your upper lash first, hold the wand horizontally and wiggle it from roots to tips. For the lower lash, hold the wand vertically and do the downward stroke. And finally, add color to your lips.

Some women prefer lip gloss and lip balm. Lip balm makes the lips soft and flaky that lipstick and lip gloss can cause both. But if you want to wear lipstick, choose nude colors. To make it last longer, put on your lip balm first, then your lipstick. When you wear lipstick, start form center of lips going out. Be sure that reach the edge of your lips and be careful not to stain your teeth. To have that pouty lip, dab some shiner in the center of your lips.
