Tips to Get Started with Your First Time Makeup
Lesson 1: Foundation
While you must be out there figuring out the perfect shade of foundation that suits your skin, we have a tip for you on how to do it. Many people try the shade on their arm and that’s a big No. It is always wise to try the shade on your jaw-line so that you’re able to get your perfect shade. Our arms are usually darker in shade than our face so trying there may lead to confusion and you may end up buying the wrong shade. The uneven skin tone after application can spoil your entire look and you may not be very happy with the end result.
Lesson 2: Blush
Over application of blush can make your entire look go wrong. The best technique to apply the blush is only onto the apples of your cheek and then gently brushing it backward towards your cheekbones. This technique is recommended for a natural glow. Just smile and dab a minimal amount of blush to make it sit down perfectly!
Lesson 3: Eyebrows
While a lot of people don’t do their eyebrows with full face makeup, it is recommended to make do it as it enhances the look. Eyebrows are also an important part of your face that can make or break any look you do. It is a crucial step and one must not ignore it. Filling or drawing your eyebrows can be a game-changing step and beginners must keep trying to draw and fill their eyebrows perfectly to get that flawless result.
Lesson 4: Lip liners
Before applying any lipstick make this your mantra, “a lip liner is a must.” Applying lipsticks, especially the liquid ones can be tricky and you don’t want to spoil your look by overdoing or unshaped application. Make sure the lip liner is of the exact shade of your lipstick or one shade lighter. You can overdraw also depending on your natural lips. If you want fuller lips drawing over your top lip can be helpful.
Lesson 5: Blending
Blending is one of the most important things to remember when applying makeup. Blending everything properly is important to make your makeup look smooth and nice. Harsh lines on your face can spoil your entire look and this is one of the most prominent mistakes beginners make. So the trick is to keep on blending till you see nothing but a flawless look on your face!
Lesson 6: Concealer
When you deal with concealers getting the shade right can look like a task. It is always advisable to go for shade as same as your foundation or 2 shades lighter. If you go for a darker shade than your foundation it can ruin your entire look as it won’t match no matter how much you try to blend it. An uneven tone can be a nightmare after spending hours putting on a specific look.
Lesson 7: Remove Your Makeup Before Going to Bed
It is very important to wash off your makeup before going to bed and moisturize your skin. It can cause damage to your skin resulting in an outburst of acne and pimples. When you leave makeup on for an entire night you are preventing your skin from breathing and it may also clog your pores. Having a bedtime skincare regime can prove to be beneficial for your skin after a long day of makeup as it can hydrate your skin and keep it glowing!
Lesson 8: Moisturizing and Exfoliating
For the smooth and easy application of your lipstick make sure you exfoliate your lips to remove any cracks or roughness that maybe there. After exfoliating, your lips apply lip balm or chapstick to keep your lips hydrated for a good lipstick day. Dry lips can make your lipstick look bad and your entire look can get affected.
Lesson 9: Primer
If you use makeup on a regular basis make sure you protect your skin at all costs. Appling primer can be the key to your smooth base. Makeup can make your skin dry and patchy. To make your base smooth, apply a moisturizer, and then primer for a fresh and long-lasting effect.
