Nowadays, girls are not paying attention only to their style; the right makeup can improve their outfits drastically.
The face is the window to the soul and for that, makeup must look as natural as possible. At this time, I will recommend six basic techniques for a flawless look.
STEPS FOR A FLAWLESS MAKEUP
FIRST: CLEAN, TONE AND MOISTURIZE YOUR FACE
The intention is to avoid retouching every minute: First, apply your toning cream and moisturizer. I use Lait-Creme Concentrate Embryolisse, setting 2 or 3 layers according to the customer's skin type. Some women only need 1 or 2, but some dry skins may require more.
One important thing is skin preparation. This first step is the pretty basic in makeup and not everyone does it.
With the moisturizer on, you set a barrier between skin and makeup, allowing the makeup to last longer while taking care of the skin, preventing black points and pimples.
SECOND: APPLYING A PROPER FOUNDATION
You should set a proper foundation that goes with your skin color. You can choose between brush or beauty blender, but remember to get it moist for better sliding.
A wet brush allows you to control how much product you use while ensuring great coverage. The blender is my preferred option because it delivers the right application, blending the makeup properly while being useful for several techniques like the contouring.
Using your fingers is an effective way to apply foundation. It doesn’t waste any product at all but is not a professional way to do it.
An extra tip: You can put drops of oil on the beauty blender or the brush for the skin to look shinier. This tip is for people without greasy skin.
After setting the foundation around the face, cover all the way to the neck for a consistent look, after that, you can continue to do the rest of the corrections on the eye bags, dots, etc.
THIRD: SEALING THE MAKEUP WITH POWDER
For our desired look, we must seal the makeup with powder. A brush is the tool of the trade here, doing soft strokes over the face. When you finish, it’s time for the blush.
We can choose an appropriate color by considering our skin tone. There are several options, but I pick the powder for sealing.
FOURTH: THE EYES REQUIERE DEDICATION
Every time you do your makeup, the eyes require dedication. I work them with fashionable colors, but taking the occasion into consideration can be of great help.
Combining the shadows with the eyes color is a winning combo. Also, I recommend applying 2 or 3 colors for the desired effect, as long as it’s blended properly.
Having the patience to do the blending can make or break a look.
Now is time for the eyeliner. I suggest starting from the inside out. This is going to help the eyes to pop, something we aim for this look. When you’re doing this, keep the size and shape of the eye in mind.
The eyelashes will be our next focus point. There’s nothing wrong if you decide to use fake ones. I always curl mine as much as I can and then I apply the mascara. Also, always look for a product that doesn’t leave too much residue.
Always aim to refill your eyebrows without overdoing them. I use crayon and shadow. The crayon helps me to define while the shadow gives volume.
FIFTH: THE LIPS FOR LAST
I leave the lips for last. It’s important to have a cleaning routine for them. Cracked lips don’t look good and to fix this, you must clean, exfoliate, and moisturize them.
As for bride’s makeup, you define the lipstick’s color at the tests and then, the bride should have one at hand at the wedding, so she can retouch it and look radiant during the party.
SIX: SEALING THE MAKEUP
The most precise way to do it is with finish setup spray. Many women use hair spray, but it leaves a sticky feeling in the face.
But once you have sealed your makeup, you are ready to rock!
