We all know that Makeup is a way to enhance your personality, but at the same time, it completely depends on your style and preferences.
It’s easy to do your own thing when it comes to makeup, but if you want to know how to apply makeup like a pro, then this blog is for you!
We are here talking about learning new skills and use skillful applications that can help a lot in achieving the look you crave.
Here are the steps :
►Apply a Primer
It is a required makeup tip that must not be ignored in any way. It helps in improving the coverage, helps in minimizing pores works great in smoothing the texture. Applying a primer in the summers is a must as it does not let your makeup melts out.
The best way to apply Primer you need to start off small and give the primer a full minute to dry before layering anything on top in order to avoid disturbing the makeup.
Also, I want to mention here what are the most common primer mistakes?
a. Applying makeup too soon afterwards.
b. Mattifying moisturizer on dry or mature skin
►Apply a Foundation
Contrary to popular belief, Foundation does not to be full coverage all the time. It only needs to cover some areas such as Redness and Pimple spots.
The important tip is to note the colour matching and even application. A natural-looking Pro foundation starts with good skin lotion care and applying less on the face.
Should I use a sponge ? fingers? brush?
If you want to light coverage, you should use the sponge. If you want fuller coverage you can use fingers because finders there are no pores. Pros would like to use a foundation brush because is a cross between fingertips which will put it on full or sponge which tends to soak up a lot of products. (For choosing the foundation brush Pro’s will advise you a flat angled kabuki brush) Please densely pack the brush like to pack the product into the skin by using small tapping motions and getting all of the product evenly distributed and if you feel like need more coverage or more foundation, just put a few more pumps on your pallet and then can go right back into the skin to give yourself more coverage.
Tips for the foundation:
a. Don’t be afraid to put it under your eyes and around any discoloration across your nose or on your forehead. Remember your foundation is going to do half the battle actually going to cover up 50-60% of your problems area.
b. Foundation will dilute quite considerably if you put it on the areas before your concealer.
►Enhance your eyes with Eye Makeup
Knowing how to apply eye makeup takes practice. The more you put the better you get at it. And it all starts with the brush, Make the investment, you will be happy that you did. Having good brushes is key to apply eyeshadow and creating eye makeup trends and styles that will look professional.
Step 1. Begin by applying a neutral in a softer hue to the eyelid using your Allover Eye shader or a medium size eyeshadow brush. Make sure to press the colour into the lid as you move across the eye to ensure an even application. Create intensity even when using a lighter shade by adding more layers of the same colour.
Step 2. Choose a lighter, shimmery shade and with your flat eyeliner brush add a thin line right along your lid using a patting motion to apply from corner to corner. You can repeat this step to add more shimmer or leave as is for a softer line.
Step 3. This step is optional if you want to create a gradual fading look on your lids. To do, add a colour on top of the previous colour used in Step 1 that is slightly darker than the lid colour. Gently pat this on your lid starting at the outer corner and gradually fading the colour towards the middle of the eye making sure to blend so it’s seamless with the colour underneath. Use your blending brush to smooth any hard lines.
Step 4. Using your Pro Crease Blender Brush, add a darker colour to the outer corner for contouring your crease. Start by adding a little colour first and adding more if needed. It’s easier to build the colour than to take it down if you’ve applied too much. Remember, patience is key when you’re just learning how to apply eyeshadow. Keep blending into your crease using the “windshield wiper” effect so there are no harsh lines. To create a continuous look you can sweep the same crease colour along the lower lash line.
Step 5. Highlighter Time, with your flat brush, choose the highlighter you wish to use and apply this directly underneath the brow bone in a patting motion again until you have the desired effect. This step is optional, but you can also add a sliver of the same highlighter to the inner corner of your eyes creating a sideways “v” shape.
The last, take your time and don’t rub your eyes.
►Define your Eyebrows(I always think this is so hard)
The full defined brow is in demand hardly, A perfectly groomed shaped eyebrows frame the face and if done correctly can act as an instant eye-lift.
Step 1. To find out where you brow should begin, align the flat edge of a straight makeup brush to the outside of your nose / inner corner of your eye.
Step 2. Your true arch is found by taking your brush and laying it diagonally from your nostril to the outside edge of your iris.
Step 3. Determine where your brow should end by using your brush to create a line from the outside corner of your nose diagonally to the outside of your eye.
Step 4. Once the eyebrow shape is determined, brush the hairs up using a little bit of Gel to show you what is going on with your brows, where you need to fill, and so on.
Step 5. Fill in any gaps and define your brows with the Great Shape Eyebrow Kit. Use small upwards strokes with the angled brow brush included in the eyebrow makeup kit to create lift and the illusion of natural hair.
Step 6. Seal your work with eyebrow gel to keep everything in place.
Once your perfectly groomed eyebrows are filled in, you can tweeze away whatever is leftover. This way you don’t risk over tweezing!
►Use a blush
Using blush on the cheeks not only adds glow to your skin but also makes your face look fresh and healthy. Blush can be applied using a fluffy brush on the apples of your cheeks, make sure to apply it gently. If you have used a powder, you must go with a powder blush, while on the other hand, if you have not applied powder, you must use cream blush.
►Define your lips
Makeup is incomplete without defining your lips. But, before using lip gloss or lipstick, you must moisturize your lips with lip balm. Always choose a lip colour as per your skin tone or that goes perfectly with your outfit. To apply nude lipstick, you must choose a shade that complements your skin tone.
Start by outlining the side-by-side arched curves in the center top lip (the Cupid’s bow) and the center of the lower lip. Complete the line by starting at the outer corner of the upper lip and etch inwards toward the Cupid’s Bow. Repeat on the bottom lip.
Use a lip brush (or your ring finger) to blend and soften the pencil inward and onto the lip itself.
Apply lip colour: start at the outer corner of the lip and work toward the center.
