Do you want to know the necessary steps to achieve a flawless makeup look? Look no further, because we have the ultimate makeup tutorial for you! Whether you’re a makeup newbie or an expert, we’ve got you covered from prepping your skin to finishing off your sultry smokey eye with the perfect pout.
Prepping Your Skin
The first step to achieving a flawless makeup look is prepping your skin. You want to start by cleansing your face and applying a moisturizer to hydrate your skin. Once your moisturizer has absorbed, apply a primer to help your makeup adhere better and last longer. Pay attention to areas that need extra care, such as under your eyes or around your nose.
Applying Foundation and Concealer
Applying foundation and concealer is the next step in achieving a flawless makeup look. When choosing your foundation, make sure to choose a shade that matches your skin tone. Using a foundation brush, blend the foundation onto your face, making sure to cover any areas that need more coverage. Next, apply concealer to any blemishes or under-eye circles, blending it in with a brush or your finger.
Contouring and Highlighting
Choosing the Right Products
Contouring and highlighting can really enhance your natural features. It’s important to choose the right products for your skin tone and type. When choosing a contour shade, make sure it’s not too warm or too cool-toned. The same goes for your highlighter, which should be a shade or two lighter than your skin tone.
When it comes to contouring, you want to apply it to the areas of your face that you want to recede or create more definition. This is usually under your cheekbones, along your jawline, and the sides of your nose. When applying highlighter, focus on the high points of your face, such as your cheekbones, brow bone, and the bridge of your nose.
Blending is key to achieving a natural-looking contour and highlight. Make sure to blend well with a beauty sponge or brush to avoid harsh lines and achieve a seamless finish.
Adding Color to Your Cheeks
Contouring and highlighting are great for enhancing your natural features, but adding color to your cheeks with blush can really make you look alive. When choosing a blush shade, it’s important to consider your skin tone. If you have fair skin, try a pink or peach shade. If you have medium skin, a coral or mauve shade would work well. For darker skin tones, a berry or deep red would be a great option. Apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks, blending outwards with a brush.
Creating the Perfect Pout
Now that your face is flawless, it’s time to finish off your look with the perfect pout. Start by exfoliating your lips with a lip scrub or soft-bristled toothbrush to get rid of any dry skin. Apply a lip balm to hydrate your lips before lining them with a lip liner that matches your lipstick shade. Once you’ve lined your lips, apply your lipstick with a brush or straight from the bullet. Blot your lips with a tissue to remove any excess lipstick and voila! A perfect pout to complete your flawless makeup look.
