Makeup hacks for beginners

Cleansing

Begin with a clean canvas! The first step to your routine should involve removing any traces of oil or dirt. You can use a gentle cleanser to wash your face to make it squeaky clean. Choose a facial cleanser that suits your skin type.

Using A Toner

A toner can actually do wonders for your skin. If you have an oily or acne-prone skin, then toners are a blessing for you. It helps to balance the pH levels of your skin and tighten your pores. Just dab some toner on a cotton pad and pat it all over your face and neck. Do add this step to your skincare regime.

Applying Moisturizer

A moisturizer is an essential part of your skincare regimen. You need to hydrate your skin well, in order to get your makeup to look great. Choose a moisturizer that suits your skin type and knocks yourself out. It keeps the skin underneath your makeup healthy and it also helps to provide a smooth finish rather than a cakey look.

Wearing Sunscreen

You will thank your younger self in the future if you follow this step. Wearing sunscreen throughout the year is vital if you want to avoid premature aging of your skin, hyper pigmentation and other terrible possibilities that can occur because of harmful UVA rays. So do yourself a favor, and put on SPF!

Using a Primer

The first and foremost step is to apply a primer. Doing this will boost coverage, smoothen out your texture, minimize pores and will increase the longevity of your makeup. If you’re going to be running around or sweating, then a primer is a must.

Applying Foundation

Choose the exact shade of foundation for your skin tone to achieve a flawless look. A good trick for finding the right shade is to match it to your chest. Remember the golden rule, ladies – less is more. That’s the case with foundation.

concealer

A concealer is typically used to cover up those bothersome spots, blemishes and dark circles. Use a concealer in a shade slightly lighter than your skin tone to brighten and even out any areas that need work.

Compact

This step is totally optional but if you are someone with oily skin then make sure to use a compact or setting powder in a color matching your skin tone. You can use a sponge or a buffing brush to apply the product evenly on your face and neck. A compact is easy to tuck into your purse and you can touch-up to keep your face looking shine-free.

Enhance your eyes

Make sure to purchase a high-quality eyeliner and mascara, so it won’t smudge or smear.Using eyeliner, line your upper waterline and the outer corners of your lower lashline. Use a brush to smudge the product to avoid harsh lines.

Lipstick

Before you put on anything on your lips, make sure you’ve moisturized them with some lip balm for lush and healthy looking lips. Choose lip colors that complement your skin tone. If you want to wear nude lipstick, find the right shade of nude for your skin tone. If you’re feeling chirpy and want to go with bright colors, find shades that you can work with.

Here you are totally ready to flaunt.
