There’s a time and a place for everything. The same thing goes for your makeup. You may need a daytime look or an evening look, and then there’s the nightlife look. But if you not used to use makeup at all, it can be a little intimidating. Luckily there are easy makeup tip for beginners. And if you are a beginner there are a few ways for you to be applying your makeup step by step.
You always want to start by cleansing your face with a cleanser that’s good for your skin type. This also applies to the moisturizer your going to apply after cleansing. This allows makeup to go smoothly and effortlessly.
Sometimes less is more. So you’ll want to apply either a light BB cream, tinted moisturizer or a light coat of foundation, or a powder foundation. Whichever you prefer to use, but nothing to heavy. You’ll want to keep nice and light, just one coat with a makeup sponge around the entire face. Be sure to blend the edges, the goal is to make it look natural.
Next, you want to add a soft blush to the apple of your cheeks. This will give your face a warm Dewey look. You don’t want to over apply, that will take away from the simple look that you’re going for. If your not one for blush, you could try a simple bronzer. That would give your entire face an overall glow.
For your eyes, I would go with a pale or light eyeshadow and sweep it over your eyelids. If you are going to use eyeliner, I would suggest using it lightly. Using it to heavy might throw off the light eyeshadow. To complete your eye look, apply one or two coats of mascara just so that it will lengthen and volumize your lashes. But don’t overdo it! Too dark of lashes will throw the entire look off!
For your lips, you can go either way. You can use a light tinted lip balm, something just to add a hint of color, or you can you can use your favorite lipstick. It’s really up to you. Whichever way you go, be sure to match the colors of makeup you’ve chosen to use on your eyes and cheeks. Tying all this together will complete the look.
It really doesn’t take much effort to get a simple look. With a little practice and the right products, you can achieve a simple look whenever you want. Just remember to not use a heavy hand when applying your makeup. Just apply lightly. That’s really all it takes. After practicing a few times you’ll see how easy it is, and it will become very easy to do!
