Why do some people always have flawless makeup while others struggle to get their makeup right? It’s not because they are naturally more talented when it comes to makeup application; it’s because they have learned a few tips and tricks along the way. You too can have flawless makeup by following some easy tips.
Start with a strong foundation – Everything needs a good foundation; houses, children, and your makeup.
- Cleanse your skin.
- Exfoliate to remove dead skin cells.
- Use toner.
- Everything you use for your face should be made specifically for your skin type.
Don’t skip the primer – A common mistake people make is skipping the makeup primer. Primer does a couple of things to improve the look of your makeup. First, it gives you a smooth surface so that your makeup glides on. Secondly, it helps keep your makeup in place so that it performs as it should. If you want your makeup to last all day, use the primer.
Quality makeup brushes – The best makeup brushes are professional makeup brush sets. You don’t have to spend a fortune to get these quality brushes. These sets come with a variety of brushes so that you always have the right brush. When it comes to makeup, you can’t use one brush for everything. Each brush has a different job; your makeup looks better when you use the right brush.
Choose your foundation color – For many years, consumers were told to apply foundation shades to their forearm to see if it was the correct shade. These days, experts say to apply swatches to your chest to see if it’s a match. The skin color on your chest more closely matches the skin on your face. Additionally, keep in mind that makeup tends to get a bit darker as the day wears on as it mixes with the oils on the face. Therefore, choosing a shade that’s a tad bit lighter is fine.
Contour after foundation – Contour your face after you apply the foundation. Applying the contour first doesn’t do you any good since you’ll be covering it up with the foundation. Be sure to blend the counter in well. The above tips will help you get that flawless look you want. Remember, start with a good foundation by starting a skincare regimen that works with your skin type, use the right brush for each type of application, and choose the right foundation color.
