Make-up 101

By  | 

Applying makeup may be just easy to some especially if you’ve been doing that for a very long time. But for those who are new to this whole thing, here are a few tips:

Concealer:
– Concealer should always be applied before foundation.
– Use a concealer one shade lighter than your skin tone. When it comes to the dark circles under you eyes, avoid using a very light shade.
– You may use an eyeshadow brush to blend the concealer finely into your skin.
– Do not use too much so you can really make sure that there’s no sign of the concealer in your face to keep the natural look.

Foundation:
– Apply foundation with your hand or a sponge.
– As much as possible, try not to put too muh to avoid a mask-look.
– When putting foundation on your eyelids, side of the nose and outside the nostrils, Set it with powder immediately to avoid creasing.

Powder:
You can use translucent powder but it’s best to used colored formulation for better coverage.
– Make sure that the color matches the foundation.
– It’s better to apply powder in downward strokes so that all areas will be well blended.

Blush:
– If you want natural flush, go for subtle neautrals.
– For a sun kissed glow, go for a bronze shade.
– Always use a big brush when you apply blush because smaller brushes would make your blush appear painted on.
– Blend the blush in circular movements over your apples.
– Never pair a loud colored blush with a loud colored lipstick.

Lipstick:
– Choose the best lipstick color. For fair complexion, go for pinks, pinking reds and natural/nude. For tanned complexion, you’ll loke best with plums, darker pinks, and those that are shimmery. For dark complexion, avoid nude and go for rich plums, reds and mettalic shades.
– Start off my putting concealer over your lips and set it with a pressed powder. (Yes!)
– For matte lipstick, it’s best if you coat it with lipgloss so your lips won’t look dry.
