This is what you should start doing to guarantee the best makeup application, so get your brushes and your makeup kit and start trying out all these tips!
For your makeup to apply smoothly and to achieve a natural, well-balanced look, you need to first experiment, then correct and follow these ultimate guidelines!
Check the light
When you apply makeup it is important to observe the way it looks under every light –see if you contour and foundation look in your mirror, but also sunlight. Then make little adjustments to see if it looks cakey or natural –you’ll be surprised at how much your go-to look can change in natural light.
Be ready to change your look often to see what suits you the best –if you always apply liquid liner, try mascara and eyeshadow for a change. I used to be a liquid liner fan, but after I tried a more natural look, I realized a bit of highlighter and mascara suit me better. If you are used to wearing only lip gloss, try matte lipstick –makeup is a took to have fun and experiment with the look.
Prep your skin before any makeup application. Cleanse, wash with water, tone, moisturize with SPF and apply a serum. Moisturizers correct the appearance of blemishes and visible porsñ Remember: never apply foundation if you haven’t moisturized previously. If you are only going to wear concealer, apply first some tinted moisturizer, then dab a small amount of concealer and build it up until you get the desired coverage. You can also apply a face oil instead of a primer to give your skin a healthy glow and your makeup will apply smoothly.
It’s all about the balance
When you choose a statement eye look, go for subtler lips, if you choose a bold lipstick, keep your eyeshadow simple. It will help you enhance your features and achieve a more natural look.
Full eyebrows are trendy and let’s face it, it’s great –I remember when we used to be tweezer addicts and stress over that hair that looked off. Over-tweezed brows will make you appear older and make your features look way harsher.
