#1 Moisturize Your Face and Lips:

  • The first step is to moisturize your face but before that make sure your face is clean or simply clean it once. Apply Your favorite face moisturizer and Lip balm and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
  • This is a very important step and many people forget about it. Moisturizers smoothen the dry areas and hydrate your face skin which gives two big benefits. First, your makeup stays longer, and in others will completely blend with skin and not come out.
  • So Do not forget this basic makeup tip to apply moisturizer before foundation.
  • And apply primer once your skin is moisturized completely.

#2 Apply Foundation:

  • The next step is to apply a foundation that perfectly suits your skin tone. Take a few drops of foundation and put it on all over your face.
  • Then take a foundation brush or beauty blender sponge to blend it. A beauty blender works best for foundation just dab the sponge all over your face so that foundation spreads equally throughout the face.

Bonus Tip: To Buy a Perfect fit foundation for your skin tone, Click your face photo with the back camera of your phone without any filter and cover your chick and neck area in the photo. Then compare your photo with the palette given online on the laptop.

#3 Apply Concealer On Targeted Areas:

  • Concealer is used to lighten the darker areas on your face such as dark circles and dark patches around the mouth and any acne spots on the face.
  • Apply concealer on targeted areas and dab it with the beauty blender so that it perfectly mixes up with the foundation you applied.
  • Always buy a concealer of a lighter shade than foundation so that it lightens your darker areas better.
  • You can also apply this on the nose and forehead to highlight those areas more. This is so Basic makeup tip that most women do not know about.
  • If you don’t have any dark spots or dark circles then it is okay not to use concealer and only settle on the foundation.

#4 Apply Compact Powder:

  • The Next step in makeup is to apply Compact Powder on the face. Compact Powder can be applied with the cotton pad and compact brush but the brush is recommended for the perfect blend.
  • Take some compact powder on the brush and remove excess just by tapping 2-3 times and then apply it all over the face.

Bonus Tip: Apply Blush just after compact powder and if you don’t have it Take a golden/pink color eyeshade/lipstick and apply a little amount on your chicks. Make a smiley face while applying blush and then gently blend it with the base with a brush.

#5 Eye Makeup:

  • Apply Dark shade into the crease with a small crease makeup brush and take a lighter shade to apply on your lids. Apply a golden or silver shade to Brow Bone, and Inner Corner to highlight these areas.
  • Blend this all with a fresh brush so that they don’t look separated.
  • Now carefully apply the liner and try to apply a thicker one to make your eyes look bigger and finally apply your favorite shade of eye pencil.’
  • Don’t forget to do your eyebrows as they speak a lot about your look. Comb your eyebrows with the spoolie (eyebrow comb) and then with the help of an eyebrow pencil give it a perfect shape. Take your time while doing so and do it very carefully.

  • You need to spray on all your face almost at a distance of 1-2 feet. Dab a clean sponge to blend it all.
