How to apply makeup

The variety of products and tools can be intimidating if you’ve never done makeup before. Not to worry. Below, we’ll help you move through the procedure. Face makeup application will be simple once you get the swing of it.

Take off any previous makeup. It’s important, to begin with, a clean palette when applying makeup.

*Wash off any makeup from earlier in the day and remove any that you may have worn while sleeping. Your final appearance will be caked on and more unnatural than if you tried to apply extra makeup over the top of old makeup (excluding touch-ups).

To prevent blocked and irritated skin, you should also remove any makeup leftovers. To get rid of all traces of makeup, use an excellent makeup remover or gentle baby oil.

*Always remember to take off your makeup before going to bed because doing so might clog your pores and result in wrinkles and pimples.

* After washing your face, apply moisturiser. You should cleanse your face for the same reason you take off your old makeup. Use a gentle facial cleanser to gently wash your face.

Massage your face for approximately a minute to get rid of any germs or dead skin cells that may have gotten into your pores, then rinse with cool water. Regardless of your skin type, finish by putting on a face moisturiser.

* Apply a facial primer-

Priming your face is necessary before applying any makeup. A face primer’s main function is to improve the appearance and durability of makeup. With just a small amount, you may cover your entire face while applying the primer with your fingers. Additionally, the primer will assist your makeup last all day. Primer is essential for you if you are going to exercise, sweat, or do anything else that will make your makeup spread or wear off.

*Apply a layer of foundation-

Although there are various varieties of foundations, they are all typically applied in the same manner. As a more even base for your other makeup, liquid, cream, and powder foundations all work to smooth out your complexion. Apply foundation to your face using a damp beauty sponge or foundation brush, and if required, blend it into your neck and earlobes.

Remember that your foundation shouldn’t be considerably lighter or darker than your natural skin tone; it should be the same shade. To prevent your face from becoming a different colour from the rest of your body, it is helpful to match your foundation to your chest and neck. Never let your neck and jawline form a sharp line. This results in a finish that is harsh and unnatural, which is not what you want. It often helps to select a hue that complements your skin tone.

• To conceal difficult spots, use a concealer brush to apply a bit of extra foundation.

• You can use your fingertips to apply liquid foundation, but doing so increases the likelihood that bacteria will get onto your skin and lead to subsequent breakouts.

*Apply concealer to the area-

Concealer is used to correct uneven skin tone caused by blemishes or dark under-eye circles. In order to lighten dark spots or high points on your face, you can also apply concealer that is a shade or two lighter than your skin tone. Blend concealer on your undereye area in the shape of an upside-down triangle, down the bridge of your nose, on the chin, in the middle of your forehead, and above the upper lip using a concealer brush or your (clean) fingertips. To conceal any redness, acne, or dark spots, pick a tint that complements your skin tone. Make sure your concealer blends in with your foundation by blending the edges.

 *Set your concealer and foundation-

It’s not necessary to do this step, but if you want your makeup to look flawless and last all day, use a setting powder to keep your foundation and concealer in place. Apply loose powder to the under-eye area with a damp beauty sponge, patting any excess away with a brush. Apply a translucent or complementary setting powder over the whole surface of your face using a broad, fluffy brush. If you’re using liquid foundation, this step is very helpful because it will aid to set the makeup and take away any shine or tacky areas.

*Put some highlighter on-

Your face probably seems flat and lacks contour after applying foundation because of the consistent colour. You’ll need to feign highlights and shadows to give the impression of depth. [6] The inner corners of your eyes, the space between your eyebrows, the centre of your cupid’s bow, and the tops or sides of your cheekbones can all be brightened with a cream (apply before you set your face) or powder highlighter. Your face will appear more alert and brilliant as a result than it normally would.

• For the ideal highlight, draw a ‘3’ shape on your cheekbones, through your brows, and up to your forehead.

You can either use your fingers or a little highlighter brush to apply the highlighter.

*Create depth with contouring- Contrary to highlighting, contouring involves applying a powder that is a few shades darker than your natural skin tone to the parts of your face that you want to appear smaller or farther away. Generally, you should contour along the sides of your nose, in the hollows of your cheekbones, and below your jawline.  Another way to make a broad forehead appear smaller is to add contour to your hairline. This will produce the shadows that naturally emerge without foundation, lengthening and slimming your face. Following facial contouring, you can use bronzer to add colour. Using a sizable bronzer brush, apply your bronzer over the area you contoured.

*Use a little blush- The final stage in facial preparation is applying blush to the cheeks. Everyone’s cheeks are coloured, however, the colours vary from person to person. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks using a broad brush (the round part that forms when you smile). Applying too much blush is not recommended; just enough should be used to restore the colour that would naturally form.

*Fill in your brows-

  • This step may or may not be necessary depending on how full your brows are, however it is usually suggested for those with thin or sparse brows. Select a pencil, powder, or pomade for your brows that nearly matches the colour of your natural hair. When filling in the centre, use the same light strokes you used to create the hair-like edges of your brows. Use a clear or coloured brow gel to set them so they stay in place all day long, and make sure to follow the growth of your hair.

Utilize an eyeshadow primer-

Even while using an eyeshadow primer will extend the lifespan of your eyeshadow, it is another optional product. If you haven’t used it, you may have noticed that your eyeshadow begins to deteriorate or become oily and collect in the creases of your eyelids after a number of hours. Utilizing your fingertip, blend the eyeshadow primer from the top of your crease to the base of your lashes. Set with powder to provide the perfect surface for blending your eyeshadow.

*Apply some eye shadow-

Even if there are many ways to apply eyeshadow, the most basic and classic look is to paint your entire eyelid with a single colour. Using an eyeshadow brush or your finger for extra pigmentation, apply your eyeshadow to your eyelid and mix it outward from the centre of your lash line. Blend your eyeshadow into your natural skin tone to prevent any hard lines from showing up near your crease and the inside and outside corners of your eyes.

If you like a more dramatic look, apply a second, darker matte eyeshadow in a ‘C’ shape from the outer corner of your lash line up to the top, the outer third of your eyelid crease. Sweep the lighter shimmer colour from the inner corner to the centre to complete merge it into the rest of the appearance.

Your main eyeshadow colour shouldn’t reach past your eyebrow or farther off your lid than the tip of your eyebrow unless you’re going for a very dramatic look.

  • You can, however, highlight your browbone, which is the region under your eyebrow but above your crease, by using a lighter shade of eyeshadow. Use natural colours like cream, sand, or white if your skin is fair. Alternately, try a nude shade that is slightly paler than your skin tone. Although the colour need not be matte, there shouldn’t be much glitter.
  • You can apply eyeshadow to your lower lid and then move it along your lower lash line and outward from the outside corner of your eye. Blend well to prevent having a hard line.
  • If you use a variety of colours in your makeup, always remember to mix them together.

*Draw some eyeliner on-

To create the illusion of a fuller lash line, use an eyeliner colour that is similar to your natural hair colour (or brown if you have blonde hair). Use a pencil eyeliner for a smudged appearance, or cream or liquid eyeliner for a refined and sleek look. Draw a dashed or dotted line across your lash line, then connect the dots to create a full, continuous line. Otherwise, you must simply follow your lash line from the inside corner to the outside corner. You might choose to slightly wing the end up and outwards if you so like.

  • Apply less eyeliner to your bottom lash line because doing so will make your eyes appear less natural and much darker and bolder than if you only applied it to your top lash line.
  • If it seems comfortable, try drawing a thin line with your eyeliner down the waterline of your lids.

*Apply mascara last-

To complete your eye makeup, apply a little mascara to your eyes. You can choose from a number of mascaras depending on the appearance you want: if your lashes are short, try one that will add length; if they are thin, use a volumizing mascara. After quickly dipping the brush into the mascara, gently wipe away any extra product with a piece of paper or the edge of the container. Looking straight ahead, apply it on the top lash with upward strokes. From the inner part of your eye, move outward. Give each eye two coats, then let them dry. You can also apply mascara to your bottom lashes if you’d like. [11]

  • Wiggle the brush as you apply it to make sure that the lashes and underlayer are both coated.
  • Never pump your mascara brush in and out of the product to prevent air bubbles.
  • Avoid applying more than two coats of mascara because doing so will destroy the organic darkening effect and produce an unnaturally thick, cake-like appearance.
  • Adding a layer of baby powder between coats of mascara will provide a little extra length and volume to your lashes, giving the impression that they are fuller.

*Make your lips full-

  • Use lip balm, a sealant, or a primer. This will boost the longevity and colour brilliance of all applied lip cosmetics. Additionally, who doesn’t prefer soft lips? Applying a high-quality balm or salve later in the day will prevent your lips from peeling.
  • Apply lip liner-Use a lip liner that matches your lips’ colour or the colour you’ll be using to define them. Use a lip liner that has been sharpened to draw a line around the edge of your lips. After you’ve drawn the outline of your lips with the pencil, fill them in completely. This makes it easier to later apply a gloss or lipstick because it evens out the colour and texture of your lips.
  • Apply lip gloss or lipstick using a brush or directly from the tube. To conceal your lipliner, use the lipstick or gloss of your choice. For a natural appearance, stick with a neutral hue; for a bolder appearance, choose a vivid hue. Work your way outward from the centre of your lip after blending the colour there. Apply the colour as near to the edge of your lips as you can without going overboard and straying outside of it. To remove any lipstick that may have gotten on your teeth, quickly insert your index finger into your mouth and quickly pull it out. Any excess colour will adhere to your finger rather than later end up on your teeth.

Finish off your appearance. After applying lip makeup, your appearance is finished. Give oneself a once-over to make sure there are no smudges or stray eyeshadow that need to be cleaned off using a fluffy brush. You can correct any mistakes with a q-tip dipped in makeup remover. 

  • After applying all of the appropriate makeup, fix your face with a setting spray. Simply hold the bottle 8 to 12 inches (20.3 to 30.5 cm) away from your face and spray your entire face four or five times. Your makeup will last longer than ever right now!
