There is no need to be a professional makeup artist to achieve a flawless makeup look. You can easily do your own makeup and look just as good as if you had gone to a salon. The key is to have the right tools and know which techniques to use. With a little practice, you will be able to do your own makeup like a pro in no time.
The first step is to choose the right foundation. If you have oily skin, opt for a matte finish foundation. If you have dry skin, go for a dewy finish foundation. If you are not sure which one to choose, go to a makeup counter and ask for a sample of both. Apply the foundation on your face and neck and blend it in with a foundation brush.
Next, it is time to apply concealer. Choose a concealer that is one or two shades lighter than your skin tone and apply it under your eyes in a triangle shape. Blend the concealer in with your finger or a concealer brush.
Now it is time to contour your face. To do this, you will need a bronzer and a highlighter. First, use the bronzer to create shadows on your face. Apply it on the hollows of your cheeks, on your forehead, and on your jawline. Then, use the highlighter on the highest points of your face, such as your cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose.
After contouring, it is time to add some color to your cheeks. Use a blush that is close to your natural skin tone and apply it on the apples of your cheeks. Blend it in well with a blush brush.
Next, it is time to do your eyes. First, apply a primer on your eyelids to help your eye makeup last longer. Then, use an eyeshadow of your choice and apply it on your eyelids. Use a darker shade in the crease of your eyelid and a lighter shade on the lid. Blend the eyeshadow well with an eyeshadow brush. Then, line your upper and lower lash line with a black eyeliner. Finish off your eyes by applying mascara on your upper and lower lashes.
Finally, it is time to do your lips. First, apply a lip primer on your lips to help your lipstick last longer. Then, use a lip liner to outline your lips. Choose a lip color that you love and apply it on your lips. Use a lip brush for a more precise application. Finish off your lips by applying a clear or nude lip gloss.
And that’s it! You are now ready to rock your flawless makeup look.
