I don’t wear makeup very often, but as i reached the young age of (20+15). I have realized a little foundation and lip gloss really do go a long way. But no one ever really showed me how to wear makeup or eyeliner or blush so i wanted to share this great resource on how to apply make up, you might know how to do it already if not i hope this helps. If you have great ideas please let me know. Gracias 🙂
Step 1: Corrector/Concealer
First, neutralise darkness with a pink or peach-toned corrector. Apply with a brush to the deepest or darkest area to prepare for concealer. Next, choose yellow-based shades of concealer and layer them over the corrector underneath the eye up to the lash line and on the innermost corner of the eye. Blend by patting with your fingers. Last, apply pale yellow or white powder with a brush or puff to set the concealer in place.
Step 2: Foundation
To find the perfect foundation shade, swatch a few shades on the side of the face and forehead and check the colours in natural light. The shade that disappears is the right one. Use a brush, sponge or fingers to apply foundation where the skin needs to be evened out – around the nose and mouth where there is often redness. For full, all-over coverage, use a brush, sponge or fingers to apply and blend foundation to the outer edge of the face. To cover blemishes, spot-apply foundation stick or blemish cover stick in a shade that matches the skin tone exactly. Pat with your finger to blend. Repeat if necessary.
Step 3: Powder
For crease-free and long wear, apply loose powder in a pale yellow tone (or white if you are very fair) over concealer using an eye blender brush or a mini powder puff. Apply powder in the correct shade for your skin tone to the rest of the face using a powder puff or powder brush.
Step 4: Blusher
Smile and apply a natural shade of blush on the apples of cheeks. Blend up towards the hairline, then downward to soften the colour. For long-lasting results, layer a pop of brighter blusher on top. For an extra glow, dust a shimmer powder on the cheekbones with a face blender brush, or use a creamy formula applied with your fingers.
Step 5: Lipstick
Start with clean, smooth lips. Neutral lipstick shade and sheer formulas can be applied directly from the tube. Use a lip brush to apply darker or brighter colours, which require precise application
Step 6: Lip Liner
To achieve natural-looking definition and to keep clear of feathering around the mouth, line lips with a lip liner after applying lip color. Use a lip brush to soften and blend any hard edges.
Step 7: Eyeshadow
Sweep a light eyeshadow colour from the lash line to the brow bone. Dust a medium eyeshadow colour on the lower lid, up to the crease. Apply contour colour if needed to the fleshy part of the lid as a correction and to add depth to the eye.
Step 8: Eyebrows
Define brows using shadow or pencil in the colour of your eyebrows and
hair. To apply shadow begin at the inner corner of the brow and follow
its natural shape using light, feathery strokes.
Step 9: Eyeliner
Line the upper lash line with a dark shadow colour. Apply damp or dry. After lining the upper lash line, look straight ahead to see if there are any gaps that need to be filled in.
Step 10: Mascara
When applying mascara, hold the mascara wand parallel to the floor and brush from the base of the lashes to the tips. Roll the wand as you go to separate the lashes and avoid clumps. Always apply two to three coats.
