Having skin that looks flawless in its natural state is every girl’s dream come true. And to have such skin it needs all the care, pampering and protection, which seems to be quite tedious and time-consuming process. But with all the juggling between work, household chores, college, office, etc. it gets a little difficult to pay attention to all such things. And that is when makeup comes as your savior and make you ready to rock the day looking all flawless.
When it comes to makeup, it’s not necessary that it looks flawless all the time. For it to look all perfect, you need to ensure that you have all the right products and doing all the right things like prepping your skin before applying any makeup product on it.
You can easily achieve flawless makeup by bearing a few things in your mind.
1. PREP YOUR SKIN
The most basic and effective way of getting a flawless makeup is to ensure that your skin is all prepped up for all the makeup products and is in its cleanest state to start with. Before applying any makeup make sure you do these things.
Wash your face with a mild cleanser to remove all the excess oil and dirt from your face.
After washing your face, apply a moisturizer to hydrate your skin and to create a nice base for the application of makeup products like foundation and concealer. A moisturizer helps in getting that healthy glow.
Many of you actually skip this step and don’t give it much importance, but a primer can help you even out your skin by filling in the pores. Which further makes the foundation’s application easier. You can take a tiny amount of primer on your fingers and lightly dab it on your cheeks, forehead and chin area.
2. USE THE RIGHT TOOLS THE RIGHT WAY
Every person uses different tools to apply their makeup with. Some prefer using their fingers, some brushes, and some beauty blenders. While fingers may not be the most hygienic way of doing so, you can always use your tools only if they are in their clean state. But with that, you also need to make sure that they are being used the right way. For that flawless look, it is important that your makeup is blended nicely on your skin. Otherwise, it may look unfinished which doesn’t look good. While gliding any makeup on your skin, blend it with a beauty blender for perfect finish look or with a makeup brush for faster and easy application.
3. APPLY FOUNDATION THAT MATCHES YOUR SKIN TONE
To achieve that flawless look, the most important thing is the foundation as it even out your skin and make it appear more presentable. Just remember to blend it nicely on your skin with a beauty blender or makeup brush especially around hairline and crease areas like the ones around the nose. Also, make sure that the foundation you are using does the needful and also matches your skin tone as you wouldn’t want to appear one shade lighter or darker.
4. USE CONCEALER
For all those stubborn acne, acne marks, redness, pigmentation and dark circles, a concealer comes to rescue. A foundation may hide almost all the imperfection but to make it look more flawless a little application of concealer doesn’t hurt especially on dark circles. It works like magic in hiding all those dark circles and any other imperfection. Just make sure to use a concealer that is one or two shade lighter to your foundation shade.
5. USE SETTING POWDER
It is extremely important to apply a translucent setting powder after application of foundation and concealer to soak in all the excess oil from the face that is going to build up from all the makeup products. A setting powder also ensures that your makeup looks matte and stays for long hours without any crease formation on the face.
