Buy Right Shade Of Make Up Products
The first step of makeup is buying the right shade of makeup items like foundation, compact, blusher, eye shadows, lipsticks and concealer. It is very important to match the shade of foundation and compact with your skin tone. Some people have wrong notion that we use foundation to make us look fairer and for this reason they buy foundation lighter their skin tone. When they apply it they are looked almost like joker. One more thing. Buy foundation according to your skin type. If you have oily skin buy the water based foundation and if you have dry skin it is better to buy oil based foundation. Lipstick, eye shadows and blusher should be bought according to your skin tone.
Wash Your Face and Hands Properly Before Applying Makeup
The next step is to make your face ready for applying foundation. Remove old makeup and wash your face with face wash to remove dirt and grease. Wash your hands too as foundation should be applied not only on cleansed face but with clean hands too to keep your foundation brighter.
After washing is done apply astringent at the beginning of starting makeup. Astringent gives your skin a cool effect and saves your skin from excessive sweating. Astringent is really needed for oily skin.
Apply Moisturizer as Makeup Base
After that, apply moisturizer on your wet face. Wet skin absorbs moisturizer properly. Then wait for 2-3 minutes so that your skin absorbs it properly.
Rub an Ice Cube to Make Your Foundation Long Lasting
Now rub an ice cube on your face and neck. Ice cube helps to make your makeup long lasting. Do not wipe your face. Let the skin allow absorbing the ice cool water.
Use Concealer to Conceal Unwanted Spots On Face
Now apply concealer if you need it. People generally who has acne, acne marks and other blemishes generally need it to conceal all those spots.
Apply Foundation Properly:
Now pour some foundation on your palm. If it is water based then mix a few drops of cold water in it and if it is oil based then mix a few drops of moisturizer in it. Mix well and then with the help of your finger apply it on your face and neck. Do not ignore neck and earlobes. Give same attention on applying foundation there as you gave it when you applied it face. Now rub gently to spread the foundation.
Apply Face Powder and Compact to Set the Foundation:
To set the foundation you may puff some lose face powder of same shade on your face. Then take a wide head brush to brush out the excess powder. Dab compact after that to give your foundation a ultimate flawless effect.
Now apply blusher on your cheekbones. Use fingers to mix it with skin. For fair skin lighter shade is preferable where as medium to dark skin may apply pink and other dark tone.
Apply Eye Shadow and Eye liner:
Applying eye shadow is the next step. After that, draw your eyes with eyeliner. If it is night make up then you can smudge the liner.
The last but the most important step is applying lipstick. Choose lipstick according to your dress color. If you have very thin lip do not apply dark colored lipstick as it makes your lips look thinner. Better use lighter shade. Darker shade is for thick plum lips. Now see yourself on mirror. Wear your garments, wear jewelry, spray fragrance, wear shoes and now you are ready to go to your party.
