There are so many makeup ideas everywhere you look, such as ombre lips, blurred lips, the unicorn look, and contouring… Finding your way around isn’t always easy.
Though these things look great on Instagram, for the vast majority of girls, these are not practical makeup tips and techniques.
What if you don’t want to put on that much makeup? What if you want to appear more natural? Maybe you want to look like yourself, but only the best you can…
There are many videos available that show how to contour your face step by step. And don’t the girls look stunning?
But, unless you’re putting on makeup solely for Instagram photos, completely covering your skin in several layers of makeup is not a good idea.
Though these things appear perfect in front of a camera, they aren’t in real life. This is especially useful for everyday makeup, whether you’re going to school, work, having coffee with friends, or running errands.
For any everyday occasion, exposing your own skin is preferable to the masking effect. Completely covered skin makes you appear older and, to a lesser extent, less attractive.
Many girls apply thick layers of makeup because they don’t know how to apply thin layers of light daily makeup and still achieve the best results.
The steps below will show you exactly how to do that. Each one of the steps is significant. So, don’t skip any steps, and I guarantee your skin will look natural, youthful, and radiant if you stick to this routine.
Have you ever attempted to reapply nail polish over an old, peeling layer? You know how you couldn’t hide it: there were lines and edges, and it was obvious that there was something beneath that shouldn’t be there?
The same is true for your skin. The skin is constantly renewing itself, but the old layers remain on top. As a result, when you apply foundation to dirty, oily, or flaky skin, it shows.
To get rid of it all, use a gentle peeling cleanser. Its grains will exfoliate the layer of dead skin cells and oils, revealing healthy, youthful skin. Then, with your makeup, you can highlight that youthful glow.
Face toner is a big big big This is a big deal. It lightens the skin tone. Skin is matted as a result of using this product. Enhances skin tonus. Pores are shrunk as a result of this treatment.
Choose a non-alcohol toner that is appropriate for your skin type. Apply your toner with a cotton pad, light dabbing it on your skin. This may appear to be a minor step, but it has a significant impact on the end result.
The last thing you want is oily and greasy skin that shines and has run-down makeup. So, pick your daily cream wisely, but don’t even consider skipping it.
A good moisturizer can serve as an excellent foundation for daily makeup. It will be easier to spread your foundation over a thin layer of light face cream, and your makeup will look more blended.
What you need first is a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type to protect your skin throughout the day. Next, select a light, non-greasy formula that will not make your skin shine. Gel moisturisers appear to be the best option for the majority of girls.
After applying the toner, wait a few minutes before applying the moisturiser. It’s time to move on to the next step when your skin has absorbed most of the moisturiser but is still slightly damp.
4. THE FOUNDATION
The amount of coverage you need is determined by your skin type. Even so, for everyday makeup, use as light a foundation as possible.
There are many foundation brushes available. But many makeup artists agree that all you need to get the best results is your fingertips. As a result, your makeup looks far more natural, there are no brush traces all over your face, and you avoid the masking effect.
So, on the back of your hand, squeeze a small amount of foundation. Dab the foundation all over your face with your fingertips and blend it in well with your skin.
There are now hydrating foundations for dry skin, matting foundations for oily skin, oil-free foundations based on water, foundations with minerals, vitamins, anti-ageing properties, and so on.
So, your ideal foundation is out there somewhere; all you have to do is find it. In fact, if you can get away with only using BB cream, that’s even better.
Don’t forget to wipe away any excess foundation with a tissue. This is critical and can mean the difference between flawless, natural-looking everyday makeup and a makeup disaster.
Use concealer only on areas that need complete coverage, such as acne and dark circles under your eyes.
There are a variety of antibacterial concealers available to cover up your acne. The concealer under the eyes should be one to two shades lighter than your foundation.
To blend the concealer, use your fingertips as you would with the foundation.
Use face powder only if your skin is oily; otherwise, it can dry out your skin and make your foundation look flaky.
So, after you’ve applied the foundation, take a look at your skin. Apply a small amount of powder with a powder brush to any oily areas. Only use it on the oily areas. For example, if your T-zone is oily, don’t apply as much concealer to your cheeks.
Only a thin layer of powder can appear natural. Choose a translucent powder that does not provide coverage.
7. HIGHLIGHTER, BRONZER, AND BLUSH
You are not required to use blush or bronzer, but if you do, avoid model-on-a-photoshoot techniques. There will be no contouring or experimenting with shapes and shadows.
For everyday makeup, you only need a light sweep of a brush from the middle of your cheekbone to your ear and only subtle colours that complement your skin tone.
Highlighter is also optional, but you can use a teeny tiny amount if you want. But if anyone can point to your face and say, “You’re wearing highlighter, right?” you went too far.
The top of your cheekbones, the inner corners of your eyes, and right under your brows are the three best places to use the highlighter. If you blend it well, it will add some sparkle to your look without looking fake.
8. EYE AND LIP MAKEUP ON A DAILY BASIS
Maintain a simple eye makeup look. Just a smidgeon Perhaps a thin line of eyeliner. If you use eyeshadow, it should be in pastel tones with a hint of shimmer.
When it comes to your lips, neutral colours that complement your skin tone will work with your everyday makeup.
Here’s a cool trick for finding the perfect shade for you: scrub your lips with a lip scrub or a toothbrush. Scrub them for a few minutes. See how your lips are getting a nice, intense colour as your blood flow increases?
So there you have it – the perfect lipstick shade for your complexion that will look completely natural on you because… well, it (sort of) is your natural colour.
You can also use translucent lip plumper to enhance your natural lip colour.
