When your skin isn’t properly prepped you won’t be able to achieve an even flawless finish.

In fact, no matter how expensive and quality cosmetics you use, the chemicals in them still affect your skin.

1  Apply primer

Everyone often thinks of primers as just an extra and unnecessary step of makeup. 

However, primers play an important role in helping to prevent makeup from smudging by absorbing oily oils, blurring bruises, and reddened areas. The silicon in the primer will help to fill wrinkles and evenly color your makeup.

To apply your primer, begin by squeezing a small amount onto your fingertips, or onto your preferred makeup brush or sponge. 

Pro Tip: A little bit goes a long way. Start with a dime-sized amount of primer in the center of your face, and slowly work it out towards your cheeks, forehead, and chin.

2 Apply foundation & concealer 

Now that your skin is prepped and primed, you can start applying your makeup.

When it comes to foundation, finding the perfect shade for your skin is priority number one. The right shade of foundation can make all the difference. 

– For healthy skin with almost no acne breakouts or fewer pimples: should use BB cream for better coverage.

– For skin with few blemishes or sensitive skin, acne-prone skin: CC cream should be chosen because of its lightness.

– For healthy skin with few defects: a cushion should be used to help optimize moisture. Your skin will have a bright and natural foundation.

Now that your foundation is applied, you’re ready to apply concealer. Focus on any areas you want to conceal: under the eyes, around the nostrils, acne, and any blemishes or dark spots.

3 Apply setting powder 

You can choose from either compressed or powder coated. Also, choose a setting powder that covers the same tone as the foundation, or it can be brighter / darker than just one tone.

For the best results, you should choose both foundation and powder from the same product line because researchers have taken into account their uniformity.

Using a large, fluffy powder brush, swipe a brush or velvet puff into your setting powder and tap it to remove any excess. Begin by dusting a light coat of powder all over your face. 

Press the bristles into the powder, then sweep across the skin in long, arching strokes. Focus on areas that often seem to need a touch-up throughout the day, (typically the t-zone).

6 Apply eyeliner

Next is the eyeliner step. For the basic makeup tutorial for beginners, we recommend using lead eyeliner. Although the line is not as slender as water or wax, this eyeliner is sturdy and stable enough for you to create a stroke.

Open your eyes wide and line your eyes. At the tail of the eyes, it can be lightly drawn up to create a curve to highlight the big and impressive eyes.

7 Use mascara

If you’re going to use only one eye makeup product, mascara should be at the top of your list. A few swipes of mascara can make your eyes look brighter in a single step.

You can find mascara in a variety of colors, but black and brown tend to be the most popular. 

Start by curling your eyelashes with an eyelash curler. After your eyelashes are curled, grab your tube of mascara. Gently swirl the wand around to ensure all the bristles are coated in mascara. 

Pro tip: Don’t pump the wand into the tube, as this allows air to get in and may cause your mascara to clump.

Applying lipstick is too simple even with makeup for beginners. You just need to choose for yourself a suitable lipstick color, to help your skin become brighter and more radiant.
