Learning how to do makeup is something every girl wants to do.
All throughout high school and even in college I’ve been told that I don’t need makeup. I constantly heard it every time I was to talk about makeup. I didn’t care though because I went out and bought makeup and I taught myself. When I’m feeling good in the morning or whenever I have enough time I always do a basic makeup routine. I’m going to tell you how you can achieve this look.
First and foremost I always prep my face before I put on any makeup. These are the things I use for my face.
Supplies for Prep:
Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser
Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner
Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
Step One: Wash face with water.
Step Two: Put a good amount of facial cleanser on. Rub in.
Step Three: Wash off with luke warm water.
Step Four: Pat dry face with towel.
Step Five: After, apply toner to your face and rub in a circular motion.
Step Six: Wash toner off with Luke warm water. Pat dry face.
Step Seven: Apply daily moisturizer and rub it in, in a circular motion.
Those are the steps that I take to cleanse my face. After you prep you will want to get all you makeup ready. When you do that you are ready to apply your makeup. These are the supplies I use.
Supplies for Makeup:
MAC Mineralizer Foundation (NC45)
Black Opal finishing powder (medium)
L’Oreal True Match concealer (natural beige)
Essence eyebrow designer (Brown)
Maybelline Illegal Length mascara (Brownish Black)
Liner Brow brush
Definer Shadow Brush
When applying makeup you want to make sure you apply everything evenly. These products I used based on my skin type. Some people might use MAC Mineralizer if you have dry skin because it hydrates the face and if you have oily skin you want to use the MAC studio fix which has a matte finish. First you want to put your foundation on your face and apply it evenly with your foundation brush. After you apply it all over your face next use a sponge and pat it in the finishing powder and apply on your face. When doing this step you don’t want to apply to much so your face doesn’t look caked. After this, you are done with your foundation. Next, you want to use your eyebrow pencil and fill in your eyebrow and then you want to take your concealer and just put a little bit on the back your hand. Now, when you get concealer you want to make sure that it’s one to two shades lighter than your skin tone. Then you want to take your liner brow brush, dip it in the concealer and line under your eyebrows. Next you want to take your shadow brush and blend it in. Once you finish your eyebrows you want to apply mascara to your eyelashes. I apply it three times on each side so my lashes look fuller and thicker. That’s how you do basic makeup routine.
