Check out this beginner’s step-by-step guide to master your makeup application and get your desired look.

Step 1:

Wash your face and moisturize it before applying a pore-minimizing makeup primer to form a smooth canvas for makeup application.

Step 2:

Choose a foundation according to your skin complexion and undertone and apply it on your face and neck with a duo-fiber brush or a beauty blender. Make sure t blend the foundation properly towards the outer corners of your face.

Step 3:

Apply one tone lighter shade of concealer under the eyes in a triangular shape and blend it in a dabbing motion to ensure full coverage. This technique will also brighten the face and draw attention to the eyes.

Step 4:

Using a fluffy brush, apply a neutral brown shade in the crease and blend it out, avoiding any harsh lines. Then with a denser brush, pack in the eyeshade of your choice on the lids and darken the shade as you move towards the outer corner of the eyes. Don’t forget to fill in your eyebrows, highlight the brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes and add a white/nude shade to the waterline. Then apply the eyeliner and swipe some mascara over the lashes to complete the eye look.

Step 5:

Highlight the high points of your face like the top of cheekbones and the cupid’s bow. With an angled brush, contour the hollow of your cheeks, the sides of the nose and the jawline. Run the same brush near the hairline too to give a subtle, diffused effect. Use a natural blush on the apples of the cheeks to make them pop.

Step 6:

Finally, line your lips with a soft lip pencil and then apply your favorite lipstick to complement the entire look.
