Start by cleaning
Before applying any sort of makeup,make sure you properly clean your face with a cleanser and use a toner afterwards.Putting makeup on unclean skin can cause infectious and acne related conditions on skin depending on the skin type.Therefore purchase a good cleanser and a toner to go with it to be used before putting on makeup.
Despite the skin type:either it be oily or dry, skin should always be moisturized prior makeup.Even if you have oily skin,moisturizer helps to even out and regulate the oil formation.
If you’re skin is prone to dark patches and marks,the concealer is the only thing that can make them disappear.If you don’t have that problem, you can directly use a foundation(either liquid or solid depending on the occasion) directly after moisturizing.Liquid foundations are best for everyday use and solid foundations(pancakes,foundation sticks) are more suitable for a special makeup.
Using a powder on top of any foundation is crucial as it seals the foundation onto the skin.Power acts as a sealant against sweat,the main destroyer of makeup.Having a powder in your purse is undoubtedly a smart move cause that way, you don’t have to worry about the foundation being dissolved.
A lip balm is a must have item not only on your makeup drawer but also in your purse all the time if possible.Given the amount of heat we get exposed everyday,the lips are much likely to get cracked.So it’s essential to use a lip balm on a daily basis and most importantly before applying lipstick to provide an extra protection to your lips.
You cannot have a complete look from a makeup without applying lipstick.It is important to pick colors that best suit your skin complexion.For example,if you have dark skin,you should not use light colors as it will highlight the skin tone.Red or maroon are colors that usually looks good on just anyone,dark or fair.
Apply blusher in the correct angles on your face can have an instant supermodel look.Blusher is all about highlighting and reducing certain areas on the face.Be cautious to buy a blush that complements your skin.
If you are using make up on a daily basis,it’s essential to use an exfoliating scrub at least twice a week.Exfoliating can remove dead skin and re-fertilize your skin.
