Here’s The Perfect Makeup Step-By-Step Guide For Beginners
The very basic and first step of any makeup routine is to apply Primer. This fills up any lines and also smoothens the natural skin’s texture before you apply the foundation. We recommend Colorbar New Perfect Match Primer for beginners, this will suit all skin types and can even be used every day.
Foundation And Concealer
Second step for applying makeup after primer is to use foundation. If you are a beginner, use Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte+Poreless Liquid Foundation that gives very natural coverage. Use a good makeup brush to apply foundation for full coverage and makeup sponge if you need natural coverage. After applying the foundation, its time for concealer like the L.A GIRL HD Pro Conceal (Concealer). Apply on the dark spots, under-eye area or other areas to hide any other imperfections.
Bronzer, Blush & Highlighter
For beginners, we suggest Creamy blush that is quite easy to apply. We suggest Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos. For bronzer, you can try nicely milled formula such as SUGAR Cosmetics Contour De Force Face Palette . For highlighter, we will recommend MyGlamm Pose HD Highlighter Duo Palette .
Before you start with your eye makeup, it’s important to finish with your eyebrows. It acts as guidance for the rest of any makeup look. Start filling your brows which is quite easy with the SUGAR Cosmetics Arch Arrival Brow Definer and also comes in shades.
Eye shadow is a personal choice and differs according to personality, occasion, eye shape and eye color. Buy a palette that has many different color and shade options which can easily be used for a day and even night like Faces Canada Ultime Pro Eyehadow Palette.
The next step of makeup after eye shadow is to Apply eyeliner as your lashes are bare. Cat-eye eyeliner is the most popular one and is easy to be done using a liquid liner such as Oriflame The One Express Eye Liner. Don’t forget to line your waterline for an even bold look.
Lip color choice is a personal preference as per the day or night, occasion and skin tone. A must have lipstick in every woman makeup bag is the bold red shade like SUGAR Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick – 01 Scarlett O’hara (Red).
Spritz on a setting spray to finish off your makeup and also make it lost lasting. We recommend M-A-C PRO by MAC Prep and Prime Fix Plus Setting Spray Mist.
