Step-by-step makeup guide for beginners

Here are step-by-step instructions for applying makeup for beginners.

Prepare your skin with a CTM routine

Remember makeup looks much more flawless and less sticky on naturally smooth, healthy skin. Following a thorough skincare routine is the answer to naturally glowing and flawless-looking skin. The first step is to always wash your face with a gentle but effective cleanser that removes dirt, oil, and grime from your skin. Next, use a pH-balanced toner after cleansing. Facial toner also helps to tighten pores and improve skin texture. Use it with a hydrating moisturizer to prevent your makeup from drying out your skin and keep it looking good all day. Simple skin hydrating light moisturizer keeps the skin under makeup healthy and prevents it from showing.

Use a Primer

If you want your makeup to look fresh and not melt off throughout the day, never skip using a primer. A primer helps blur your pores and makes your skin a smooth canvas for all your makeup. That’s because primer helps smooth fine lines and pores, so your makeup stays more even throughout the day. If you have oily skin, always choose a matte primer and apply it all over your face or target areas depending on your skin concerns.

Apply foundation

Next, start by applying a small amount of foundation to give your skin a flawless look and an even skin tone. It is very important that you choose a shade of foundation that most closely matches your actual skin tone, as choosing the wrong shade can make you look ghostly and weird. Also, choose a foundation according to your skin type. For oily skin, you should choose a matte foundation. On the other hand, if you have dry skin, a radiant foundation might be a better choice. Apply the foundation with a sponge or brush for a natural, airbrushed finish.

Cover problem areas with concealer

The next step is to cover all problem areas of your face with concealer, especially around the eyes. You can use the shade closest to your skin tone or choose one shade to highlight a lighter area. Concealer evens skin and covers skin imperfections. Use the included applicator to blend and buff the concealer onto the skin and blend with the sponge. Set this foundation with a compact powder to keep sweat at bay.

Slide on Blush

Blush is the part of makeup that helps add color to your face. It gives you a healthy glow and makes you look like you just got back from a run. Depending on your mood, you can use natural pink shades or something brighter. But always choose a shade and formula that matches your natural skin tone and skin type. This ensures that the blush looks natural and not made up at all.

Eyeshadow Time

Now it’s time to use eyeshadow. Start by sweeping a neutral color across your lid. Then you can choose a dark shade and apply it to the folds. This will help enhance your eyes and add depth and dimension. Be sure to take the lightest shade from your eyeshadow palette and apply it to your brows to complete the look. If using multiple eyeshadows seems like a daunting task when it comes to doing your makeup step by step, pick your favorite color and sweep it across your lids for instantly beautiful eyes.

Eye Liner, Kajal, and Mascara

Finish the eye makeup with liquid eyeliner. You can create a wing or draw a simple line. It instantly makes your eyes look bigger and brighter. Next, apply Kajal to your waterline and finish with mascara. It gives you voluminous lashes and ties the whole eye makeup together.

Apply your favorite lipstick

It is important to apply lipstick before applying lipstick. A lip liner can help prevent the color from bleeding or clumping. Choose a lip pencil in the same shade as your lipstick and outline the natural line of your lips to make your pout look fuller. Before applying lipstick, you can also color your lips with liner to create a smooth base.

Frequently asked questions about the step-by-step makeup guide for beginners

Do I need a primer before applying makeup?

Using a primer extends the life of the makeup and acts as skin protection, making the makeup last longer.

Which comes first, moisturizer or primer?

Primer should be applied after moisturizer, as moisturizer hydrates the skin and prepares it for makeup application. Makeup can be applied more effectively if you apply a moisturizer first.

Is the foundation effective without a primer?

If you don’t use a hydrating primer underneath, the foundation can crease and fall apart. If you don’t have mature skin, a matte foundation can leave your skin dry and dull.
