The following is a simple makeup tutorial for your first application. It may be useful to you if you plan to do it yourself, or if you want to learn from someone else’s experience. You can also use this as a foundation when you decide to go out and get the make up artist for that special event.
To start with, make sure you put on a basic foundation. This can be a simple powder or gel.
Next, you will need to dust your face with a loose powder. Apply a thin coat over your face to help give your foundation some coverage. Do not apply too much though, or else it will only end up looking heavy. Then you need to sweep in your foundation over your face, with as much coverage as possible.
Your next step is to apply your base. Use a foundation brush to line your eyebrows, and start filling in your lips with the same colour of your foundation. This will make your skin look more even, as opposed to having all of your pores showing through your makeup.
Now that you have your foundation on, you need to make sure that your face is clean. Use warm water to cleanse the area. Once the skin is free of dirt and grease, apply your primer and let it set.
Next, you will want to apply your foundation to the inside of your eye area. Start by applying the same shade of foundation as you are going to be using for the rest of your face. If you can, you can also use a foundation to line your upper eyelids. Continue to apply the same colour to the inside of your eyes.
Then, use a sponge applicator to put a bit of product into the bottom of your eye area. Use a bit of cream shadow or eyeliner, to bring the light to your lower lash line. Let your pencil line dry before continuing to the middle and top of your eye area.
To build up more of a substance for your eyes, you can apply a little more foundation. For example, if you have lighter skin, you can use more on your cheeks. You can also apply some foundation on your nose if you want a natural look.
Line your mouth with some sort of liner that matches your skin tone. You can either use gel or pencil. Then, you can finally blend the rest of your makeup on your mouth, and into your cheek area.
Now you can take the last layer of your makeup and blend it around the sides of your nose, with the rest of your eyeshadow, and blending into the eyebrows. Once you are done with that, let your blush settle for a minute or two. Make sure that you blend it in well, as it will look bad if it has run into your eyes.
Now you are ready to apply your lipstick. Just like the rest of your makeup, you can choose a dark or light shade. This will give your lip colour for a more dramatic effect, especially if you are wearing smokey eye makeup.
