The Ultimate Step-By-Step Tutorial for Perfect Makeup Application
Makeup application can be a complicated business, as we all follow our own set of rules and protocol when it comes to putting our faces on. Sometimes we get so stuck in our routine, we forget to stop and reflect on it. Do you ever wonder if you’re actually going about your makeup application correctly? We certainly do, so we asked makeup guru Alana Dawn to take us through the process, from start to flawless finish. Get ready for Makeup 101.
Step 1: Start with a clean slate! Make sure your face is fresh and moisturized before putting any product on it. Then, apply primer with your fingers to ensure your makeup lasts all day.
Step 2: Using a duo fiber brush (the kind with white tips!), apply foundation all over the skin and blend it onto the neck.
Step 3: Apply concealer below your eyes in the shape of a triangle. This technique ensures natural-looking coverage, brightens up your face and draws attention to your eyes.
Step 4: Apply highlighter along the top of your cheekbones, on the Cupid’s bow, chin and in between the brows. Then, swipe a contour powder along the sides of your nose, along the forehead (near your hairline) and hollows of your cheekbones.
Step 5: Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks, extending up toward the temples.
Step 6: Apply a light gold, shimmery shadow (or any shadow of your choice) to the lids and just below the lash line. Using a fluffy, blending brush, dust a soft brown shade into the crease and blend outward. Fill in your brows using a brow pencil or powder. Swipe on some mascara and your eye makeup is set!
Step 7: Using a lip brush, swipe on a natural, rosy pink lipstick and you’re good to go!
Now that you’ve got the basics down, time to move on to more makeup tips and tutorials!
