In any cosmetic store now there is such a variety of cosmetic products that it is easy for even an experienced makeup person to get confused. How can a beginner be here? For those who first decided to apply "war paint" on themselves, there are some useful tips.
In choosing tools for applying makeup, quality matters, but you should not be too zealous and buy up all the most expensive. A puff for a compact powder, a loose powder brush, a medium blush brush, a small eyebrow brush, eye shadow sponges and a few sponges will suffice. Try to buy brushes with natural bristles, they apply makeup better and are more practical to use.
For your look to be perfect, you need to choose the perfect color for your skin tone. Determine which color type your appearance belongs to and make a choice based on it. Suitable for warm skin tones: gold, peach and red-orange shades. Cool skin tones are paired with silvers, lilacs, purples and all shades of blue.
Light transparent layers.
It is always easier to add a missing piece than to fix an existing one. Therefore, do not make the mistake of most beginners - do not put thick layers on your face, do not make a semblance of a mask on your face. Do your makeup in good natural light, applying thin, invisible layers of makeup.
corrector if necessary
lipstick or lip gloss
For perfect makeup, you need well-groomed skin. Do not be lazy to take care of your face. After thoroughly cleansing, be sure to use a moisturizer. If the skin is clean, then the base may not be needed. A light powder and a corrector for problem areas will be enough. When buying a foundation, go for light, moisturizers. Use clean sponges and brushes. Shade the base well along the chin, temples and forehead - no borders should be noticeable.
First, style your eyebrows with a special brush. The color of the eyebrow pencil should match their natural color and blend in with the color of the eyeliner. Apply shadow, on the upper eyelid, draw a thin line starting from the inner corner of the eye, towards the outer. Then apply mascara to your lashes. Before that, you can twist them with special tweezers.
Apply the cream blush after the moisturizer, but before applying the powder. All other types of blush are applied over the powder. To determine the place of overlap - smile wider - apply them to the most prominent places. In order not to look untidy, carefully shade the borders of the application. When choosing a color, be guided by natural colors.
Start with lighter shades of lipstick, so your inexperience will be less noticeable. If you want to try brighter, darker colors, then use a lip liner that matches your lipstick perfectly. Do not forget that daytime makeup means light, light makeup shades, while evening makeup means brighter and more intense ones.
