Makeup can seem so overwhelming to those who are just beginning to use it. Whether you are an adult who is trying their hand at it or a young teenager exploring the art, the basics are the same. The following tips can help you achieve great results:
Get the Right Brushes
When you plan to make yourself up, you’re going to need the right tools, such as a flat makeup brush and a beauty blender. Note that brushes will be the primary tools for applying makeup to your face. You need a variety of them so that you can safely put makeup on every part of your face, from your eyelashes to your cheeks. Don’t go overboard, though. Just have a main brush, a brush for your eyebrows, and a blender to help you mix hues.
Have a Good Foundation
Applying makeup is like painting your face. This means that you need to use two things first: foundation and primer. These will be the base for all of your makeup efforts. The primer allows the makeup to stick better, while the foundation smooths out all the small imperfections that need to be covered.
One of the mistakes that beginners make is using foundation too liberally to cover trouble areas. Whether it is a blemish or a scar, putting too much foundation only makes it more noticeable. If the basic foundation doesn’t cover it, you will need to use a concealer. Remember to have a concealer that matches your foundation for a seamless look.
Care for Your Eyes
Your eyes are an essential part of your face. Look into the mirror and try to emphasize them. First, apply eye primer so that your eye shadow and eyeliner can stick. Now, when using the eye makeup, try to highlight the arches as much as possible. Additionally, when you’re starting, experiment with eye shadow. Start with neutral colors, then progress from there. Mascara and eyeliners will be your friend in making your eyes seem more prominent and expressive. Pencil liners are a good option, and mascara will give added emphasis.
Clean the Brushes
Just like a painter, you don’t want makeup to cake on your brushes. Tap them or clean them when you’re done. This enables you to reuse the brushes without blending your makeup. You should also wash them after applying all the makeup for the day.
Add Color to Your Cheeks
Your foundation will make you look a bit pale. Adding some blush to your cheeks make you look healthier and awake. You do not want to overdo it. Only go for heavier blush if you plan to go out at night.
In the end, your makeup can change how people see you. If you are a newbie, the tips above can be beneficial. Start spreading your wings from there. Learn to experiment and find your style. Remember that the key to excellent makeup is emphasizing what is already there so that people will see you at your best.
