If you are a beginner or simply not used to wearing makeup, you might get mixed up when you have an outing with friends or a special occasion. Some go to a beauty salon; others put their own makeup but are not satisfied with the result as they ignore the right order to follow when applying makeup products.
Don’t get confused after now; we will teach you the right steps and some makeup secrets that will enable you achieve an outstanding look at home without the need to go to a beauty salon. All you have to do is follow the instructions below.
1. Preparing the skin
For a perfect makeup, you should prepare your face by cleansing well your skin with a facial wash that suits its type; then you should moisturize it with a suitable cream to ensure an all-day lasting makeup. Here are some secrets to make your makeup stay put in hot weather.
Make sure to choose a color close to your skin color and apply it on your entire face; it will unify your complexion and restore its radiance.
3. Concealer or blemish-hiding cosmetic
You can use a concealer to hide dark circles around the eyes, acne scars and freckles; preferably apply the concealer after the foundation.
4. Face powder
It is necessary to use a compact or translucent powder over the foundation to set makeup and make it stay longer, and to also get a soft, neat skin.
Apply eyeshadow on the entire upper lid from inner to outer area. Put a dark color on the outer corner of the eye; you can also put a light shiny eyeshadow at the inner corner of the upper lid to make your eyes look wider and more luminous.
6. Defining the eye
Use a black pencil or black eyeliner to draw a line at the base of the upper lashes and extend it out a little to open and widen your eye. Then use mascara to thicken and lengthen lashes.
7. Cheek blush and lipstick
The last step is using a cheek blush in a peach tone for example to refresh your skin and give it radiance and beauty. Then put a touch of pink or nude lipstick, or only use a lip gloss for a simple and natural look. For special occasions, you can use a dark velvety lipstick for a sumptuous look.
These simple ordered steps will allow you to put makeup for an outstanding look that will increase your self-confidence and impress those around you.
