9 Easy Steps to a Perfect Makeup

Have you ever wondered how you can use your makeup to get a natural and glowy look? Knowing a few basics can help you create that flawless style  

1. Start with a clean face

Cleanse and tone your face. It will make your skin look perfectly clean and help rid it of dead skin, blackheads, sebum, and dirt. It helps prepare your skin for applying makeup – this is a really important step!

2. Apply a SPF moisturizer

Choose a good SPF moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type. It helps keep your skin hydrated. If your moisturizer does not have SPF, apply a sunscreen on top.


3. Choose a suitable primer

Applying a primer before foundation can help seal pores, correct red and dull skin, and cover imperfections. It also softens your skin and makes your complexion smooth and glowy.  

4. Foundation is next

If you already have flawless skin, you can use a tinted moisturizer. If you want a bit more coverage, use a foundation. You should pick a shade which is closest to your skin color.

Put a bit of foundation on the back of your hand, dab it with a foundation brush or your fingers and smooth it onto your face. Make sure to blend along the jawline so you don't have that tell-tale line. Tips: foundation is meant to even out your skin tone. Don't apply too much to avoid a caked-on look. 

5. Next up: Concealer

Choose a concealer that is close to your skin tone, one that is not too dark or too light. Apply concealer on any blemishes, red spots or dark circles. You can use a brush or fingers to apply it, and then blend it in with fingers. 

6. Set your makeup

Set your face with a light dusting of translucent powder. Gently dab the setting powder all over the face with a powder brush. 

7. Color your cheeks

Apply blush on the apples of your cheeks. If you want to appear sun-kissed, apply a bronzer on the forehead, nose and cheeks as well. 

8. Apply eye makeup

Apply a dab of eye shadow primer first to make your eyeshadow last. For a simple eye makeup, apply a base shade on the lid of the eye, and then apply a darker contouring shadow in the crease. Make sure to blend the colors well.

Next, apply eyeliner to upper eyelids. For an intense look, apply eyeliner to the lower lash line too and smudge it a bit. Then, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler and apply mascara. Place the mascara wand at the roots of your lashes, slowly wiggling it from left to right while bringing it up to separate lashes.

9. And finally, the lips

Depending on the look you opt for, choose a suitable lip product. For a simple day-to-day look, just wear a lip balm or gloss. For an elegant evening look, fill in your lips with lip liner and apply a lipstick in the same color, then finish with a gloss.

Once you get the hang of these easy steps, you are bound to achieve that natural and glowy look. Do you have any important steps to your make-up routine? Let us know!
