Makeup can become a daily burden for women. But with a few tips and tricks, you donâ€™t have to be a professional to learn how to do makeup quickly and calmly.
Generally, there are 3 main stages when doing your makeup: face, eyes and lips.
We shall begin with face.
The first step is to make sure that your skin is moisturized. You can use either a liquid foundation or a powder foundation. For the liquid one, apply a small amount on a cosmetic sponge or you can use your middle and ring fingers for these purposes, as they provide a more adroit coverage.
Begin on the middle of your cheek, using circular moves. Blend into the side of your nose and into the hairline so that you have no uneven areas. Then let it adjust to your skin and use a pressed powder to make sure that it stays on all day long. The powder foundation is mostly used for oily skin. After having chosen the right shade, use a make-up sponge and apply the powder foundation around the center of your face. Blend it carefully.
When doing your eye make-up, you begin with the use of the eye shadow base (it provides a better fixation of the makeup). Then apply concealer to dark under-eye circles. Blend it. Use special makeup brushes to apply the eye shadow. Start with a light shade and apply it across the lid and up to your brow bone. Then pick a medium color across your lid only. Use a darker shade in the crease. Blend well.
The eyeliner is an indispensable kit when doing your makeup. You can use liquid eyeliner, a liner pencil or even wet dark eye shadows. Apply it on your upper lash line.
The last but not least key-element on how to do makeup is mascara. Either for volume, definition and length, or black, brown or violet, use it at the base of your upper lashes and slowly sweep upward. Repeat the procedure several times if you want to apply multiple coats, but only on wet first coats of mascara.
Use your lip liner to draw a line around your lips. Make sure that the line is not bold and dark. Blend the lip contour from the edge of your lips to the center. Then apply lipstick or a lip-gloss.
