Choosing the Right Makeup Products

Understanding Your Skin Type

Before applying any makeup, it’s crucial to prep your skin to ensure a flawless finish. Start by moisturizing your face and applying a primer suitable for your skin type. This will create a smooth base for your foundation and help your makeup last longer. Take the time to blend the primer into your skin using gentle upward motions, paying attention to any areas that need extra coverage or hydration.

To determine your skin type, consider the following:

  • Oily skin: If your skin tends to be shiny and produces excess oil throughout the day, you likely have oily skin. Look for oil-free or mattifying products to control shine.
  • Dry skin: If your skin feels tight, flaky, or rough, you may have dry skin. Opt for hydrating and moisturizing products to nourish your skin.
  • Combination skin: If you have both oily and dry areas on your face, you have combination skin. Use products that balance oil production while providing hydration.
  • Normal skin: If your skin is neither too oily nor too dry, you have normal skin. You can use a wide range of products that suit your preferences.

Remember, understanding your skin type is essential for selecting the right makeup products and achieving a flawless makeup look.

Identifying Your Skin Undertone

Identifying your skin undertone is an important step in choosing the right foundation shade. Skin undertones can be categorized as either pink or cool undertones, or yellow or warm undertones. Fair-skinned individuals typically have pink or cool undertones, while those with Asian or olive skin tend to have yellow or warm undertones. To determine your undertone, you can look at the veins on your wrist. If they appear blue or purple, you likely have cool undertones, while green veins indicate warm undertones. Understanding your skin undertone will help you select a foundation shade that complements your natural complexion.

Selecting the Right Foundation Shade

When it comes to selecting the right foundation shade, there are a few factors to consider. First, color-match your foundation based on your skin undertone. Fair skin usually has a pink or cool undertone, while Asian or olive skin tends to have a yellow or warm undertone. Additionally, think about the coverage you want from your foundation. If you have imperfections you want to hide, opt for a full coverage foundation. For a more natural look, choose a medium or light coverage. It’s important to play around with different products and find what works best for you.

Choosing the Perfect Eyeshadow Palette

When it comes to creating stunning eye makeup looks, choosing the right eyeshadow palette is key. The palette you choose will determine the range of colors and finishes you have at your disposal. Look for a palette that offers a variety of shades, from neutral tones for everyday wear to bold and vibrant colors for special occasions. Consider the pigmentation and blendability of the eyeshadows, as well as the overall value of the palette. Finding the perfect eyeshadow palette can elevate your makeup game and allow you to unleash your creativity.

Prepping Your Skin for Makeup

Cleansing and Moisturizing

Properly cleansing your face is essential to remove dirt, oil, and impurities that can accumulate throughout the day. Use a gentle cleanser suited to your skin type and massage it onto your face in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean towel. After cleansing, apply a moisturizer to hydrate and nourish your skin. Choose a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type and apply it evenly all over your face and neck. Massage the moisturizer in upward motions to promote circulation and absorption. Remember to cleanse and moisturize your face both in the morning and evening for optimal results.

Priming Your Face

After moisturizing your face, the next step in prepping your skin for makeup is applying a primer. Primer acts as a base for your foundation, helping it to go on smoothly and last longer. It also helps to fill in fine lines and pores, creating a more even canvas for your makeup. When applying primer, use gentle upward motions to blend it into your skin, paying attention to any areas that need extra coverage or hydration. Remember to wait a few minutes after applying primer before moving on to the next step to allow it to settle and smoothen out your face.

Applying Sunscreen

Applying sunscreen is a crucial step in any makeup routine. Sunscreen helps protect your skin from harmful UV rays, preventing sunburn and reducing the risk of skin cancer. When applying sunscreen, make sure to use a broad-spectrum formula with an SPF of at least 30. Apply it generously to all exposed areas of your face and neck, including your ears and the back of your neck. Don’t forget to reapply every two hours, especially if you’re spending time outdoors. Remember, protecting your skin from the sun is essential for maintaining a healthy and youthful complexion.

Using a Makeup Setting Spray

After you’ve finished applying your makeup, shake the bottle, hold the spray eight to ten inches from your face, and spritz it in an “X” and “T” motion. Just a few sprays of the setting spray will help lock your makeup in place and keep it looking fresh all day. The setting spray also helps to control shine and prevent your makeup from smudging or melting, especially in hot and humid weather. It’s the final step in your makeup routine that ensures your hard work stays intact.

Creating a Flawless Base

Applying Foundation

After prepping your skin with a moisturizer or serum, it’s time to apply foundation. Foundation helps to create a smooth and even base for your makeup, covering any imperfections and providing a flawless finish. There are different ways to apply foundation, depending on your preference and the coverage you desire. You can use brushes like fluffy, kabuki, or flat brushes, or even your fingertips. Start by putting a few dots of foundation on your face and blend it out using a brush or your fingers. Make sure to choose a synthetic fiber brush for liquid foundation. Blend the foundation outwards from the center of your face for a natural look. Remember to focus on areas where you want more coverage, such as blemishes or redness. Take your time to blend the foundation well for a seamless finish.

Concealing Imperfections

To conceal imperfections such as dark circles or redness, use a concealer that matches your foundation shade. Apply a small amount directly onto the affected area and blend it out using a brush or your fingertip. Use a patting motion to ensure it blends seamlessly into the skin.

For a flawless look, set your concealer and foundation with a setting powder. Translucent powders are great for all skin tones and help to mattify the skin, reduce shine, and set your makeup. Lightly dust the powder over your entire face, focusing on areas prone to oiliness, such as the T-zone.

To add depth and dimension to your face, consider contouring with a matte bronzer or a gray-toned contour powder. Apply it to your cheekbones, jawline, and nose, and blend well to avoid harsh lines.

For a long-lasting base that hides imperfections, choose a foundation that provides medium-high coverage and a nourished, dewy look. Blend it seamlessly for the perfect base.

Remember, the key to a flawless makeup look is to start with a well-prepped and concealed base. Take the time to cover any blemishes, dark circles, or imperfections before moving on to the next steps of your makeup routine.

Setting Your Base with Powder

After applying your foundation and concealer, it’s time to set your base with powder. The right setting powder is essential for achieving a flawless complexion. We recommend trying the Perfecting Powder from the latest holiday collection. This loose powder will blur out any imperfections and give your skin a soft, airbrushed look. Apply a generous amount of the powder using a brush, such as the BH Cosmetics number 3 brush, and gently press it into your skin. This will set your foundation and concealer while giving you a radiant finish.

Contouring and Highlighting

Contouring and highlighting are essential techniques to enhance your facial features and create a sculpted look. Contouring involves using a bronzer or a gray-toned contour powder to create shadows and add depth to your cheekbones, jawline, and nose. Blend the contour product well to avoid harsh lines. On the other hand, highlighting involves using a light-colored product, such as an illuminating powder, to bring attention to the high points of your face, like the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and the cupid’s bow. This technique adds a radiant glow and creates a contrast with the contoured areas. Remember to blend the highlighter for a seamless finish. To achieve the best results, choose products that suit your skin tone and apply them with the right brushes or sponges. Experiment with different shades and intensities to find the perfect contour and highlight for your face shape.

Enhancing Your Eyes

Defining Your Brows

To define your brows, start by choosing a brow product that matches your hair color and skin tone. Brow pomades or pencils are great options for filling in sparse areas and creating a natural-looking shape. Begin by outlining your desired brow shape with light, feathery strokes. Fill in any gaps using short, upward strokes, following the natural direction of your hair growth. Use a spoolie brush to comb through your brows, blending the product and creating a more natural finish. Finally, set your brows in place using a clear or tinted brow gel.

Applying Eyeshadow

To create a stunning eye makeup look, start by applying eyeshadow and blending it well. This will help to enhance the shape and color of your eyes. You can choose a fun bright color of your choice, like bright blue, to add a pop of color to your cat eye. To achieve a bright semi-smokey effect, run the eyeshadow across your bottom lashline. If you want to make your eyes stand out even more, you can also add some glitter under the eyes. Remember to blend the eyeshadow well for a seamless look. Experiment with different colors and techniques to find the perfect eyeshadow look for you.

Adding Eyeliner and Mascara

Adding eyeliner and mascara is the final step to complete your cat eye look. After applying eyeshadow and defining your brows, it’s time to line your eyes and enhance your lashes. Start by choosing the right eyeliner and brush that suits your preference. You can use a pencil, liquid, or gel liner to create a flicked or winged line along the top of your eyelid. Remember to adjust the thickness of the wing according to your liking. If you make any mistakes, simply use a Q-tip or makeup remover to fix them. Once you’re satisfied with your eyeliner, finish off the look by applying mascara to accentuate your lashes. This will give your eyes a flirty and dramatic effect. Follow along with a step-by-step tutorial to achieve the perfect winged liner and lashes.

Applying False Lashes

Applying false lashes can be a game-changer for your makeup look. To ensure a seamless application, follow these steps:

  1. Measure and trim the lashes to fit your eye shape.
  2. Apply a thin layer of eyelash glue onto the lash band and let it dry for about 30 seconds.
  3. Use tweezers or your fingers to carefully place the lashes as close to your natural lash line as possible.
  4. Press down gently to secure the lashes in place.
  5. Finish off with a coat of mascara to blend your natural lashes with the falsies.

Remember, practice makes perfect when it comes to applying false lashes. Don’t get discouraged if it takes a few tries to get it right. With time and patience, you’ll be able to achieve a stunning lash look!

Adding Color to Your Cheeks

Choosing the Right Blush Shade

Blush is a must-have for a youthful and glowing complexion. Opt for a blush shade that complements your skin tone and adds a pop of color to your cheeks. Use a small blush brush and apply it to the apples of your cheeks. Blend it out towards your temples for a seamless and radiant finish.

Applying Blush

Blush is a must-have for a youthful and glowing complexion. Opt for a blush shade that complements your skin tone and adds a pop of color to your cheeks. Use a small blush brush, such as the BH Cosmetics number 3 brush, and apply it to the apples of your cheeks. Blend it out towards your temples for a seamless and radiant finish. To enhance the longevity of your blush, you can set it with a translucent powder. Remember to choose a blush shade that suits your natural features and enhances your overall makeup look.

Contouring Your Cheeks

Contouring your cheeks is an essential step in creating a sculpted and defined look. To contour your cheeks, start by using a matte bronzer or a gray-toned contour powder. Apply the product to the hollows of your cheeks, along your jawline, and on the sides of your nose. Use a fluffy brush to blend the product well, ensuring there are no harsh lines. Contouring adds depth and dimension to your face, enhancing your natural features. It’s a great technique to create the illusion of higher cheekbones and a more defined face shape.

For a seamless transition between your contour and foundation, set your cream contour with a powder bronzer. This will help to lock in the product and ensure it lasts all day. Choose a powder bronzer that complements your skin tone and apply it with a fluffy brush. Sweep the bronzer lightly over the areas where you applied the cream contour, focusing on the hollows of your cheeks and along your jawline. This will give your face a natural sun-kissed glow.

Remember to blend well and build up the product gradually for a more natural-looking contour. You can always add more product if needed, but it’s easier to start with a light hand and build up the intensity. Practice and experimentation are key to finding the perfect contouring technique that works for your face shape and desired look.

Pro Tip: When contouring your cheeks, remember to consider your face shape. Different face shapes require different contouring techniques. For example, if you have a round face, focus on creating more definition along the jawline and temples. If you have a square face, concentrate on softening the angles of your face by blending the contour product well. Experiment with different techniques and angles to find what works best for you.

Highlighting Your Cheekbones

Highlighting your cheekbones is an essential step in creating a stunning makeup look. It adds dimension and glow to your face, making your cheekbones appear more prominent and defined. To highlight your cheekbones, apply a highlighter at the upper border of your cheekbones, just under your eyes. This will catch the light and create a beautiful luminosity. For a natural flush, apply blush on the apples of your cheeks. Choose a blush shade that complements your skin tone and adds a pop of color. Blend it out towards your temples for a seamless and radiant finish.

Creating the Perfect Lip

Choosing the Right Lip Color

When it comes to choosing the right lip color, it’s important to consider your skin tone and undertones. Nude, pink, and mauve shades are great options that enhance your natural lip color. For an everyday look, opt for matte or satin finishes as they tend to be long-wearing and comfortable on the lips. You can apply the lipstick directly from the bullet or use a lip brush for a more precise application. Blot your lips with a tissue and reapply for added longevity. Remember, the perfect lip color can give your face a radiant and luminous finish.

Lining and Filling Your Lips

To complete filling your lips out with liner, create a small shadow in the center of the bottom lip with your pencil. This creates the illusion of a much fuller look. Match the color of your liner with your lipstick shade. If you want to create fuller lips and a larger pout, make the line over your lips (outside your natural lip line). Optionally, you can add a touch of shimmer or gloss to the center of your lips for dimension. Step 7: Setting: To ensure your makeup stays in place, apply a setting powder or setting spray. Optional Steps: For an even more gothic appearance, you can add additional details like outlining your lips with a lip liner to define the shape and filling in your lips with the chosen lipstick shade.

Applying Lipstick or Lip Gloss

When applying lipstick or lip gloss, it’s important to consider the shade and the desired effect. If you want to create fuller lips and a larger pout, you can make the line over your lips, slightly outside your natural lip line. Another tip is to match the color of your lip liner with your lipstick shade for a cohesive look. Lip gloss can be a great addition to any makeup look, as it adds a plumping effect to the lips. You can apply lip gloss over bare lips or over any lipstick you might have. Once your makeup is complete, you can use a setting spray or powder to hold everything together and make your makeup long-lasting.

Adding a Lip Plumper

After you have chosen the right lip color and applied it to your lips, you can enhance the plumpness of your lips by using a lip plumper. Lip plumpers are designed to give your lips a fuller appearance by stimulating blood flow to the area. To apply a lip plumper, uncap the product and use the precise applicator to smooth it onto your lips. The lip plumper will provide a tingling sensation and instantly make your lips look plumper. It’s a great way to add volume and definition to your lips for a more glamorous look.

Setting and Finishing Your Makeup

Applying Setting Powder

After applying your foundation and concealer, it’s time to set your makeup with setting powder. Setting powder helps to lock in your base and prevent it from creasing or fading throughout the day. To apply setting powder, use a fluffy brush and gently press the powder onto your skin. Focus on areas that tend to get oily, such as the T-zone. Remember to blend well to ensure a seamless finish. If you prefer a more matte look, choose a setting powder with a matte finish. For a luminous glow, opt for a setting powder with a slight shimmer. Experiment with different setting powders to find the one that works best for your skin type and desired finish.

Setting Your Makeup with Spray

Before leaving the house, check your makeup in natural light to make sure it looks natural and flawless.

Choose The Right Powder: Select a setting powder that works well with your skin type and tone. If you have oily skin, choose a powder that controls shine, while dry skin types should look for powders with hydrating ingredients.

Use The Correct Finish: If you have oily skin, opt for a matte bronzer to avoid looking shiny or greasy. If you have dry skin, you can use a slightly shimmery bronzer for a luminous finish.

Use A Steady Hand: To avoid wobbly lines, make sure your hand is steady when applying eyeliner.

Adding Finishing Touches

No makeup look is complete without gorgeous lashes and a beautiful lip color. Apply mascara to your lashes for voluminous and full-looking lashes. Use a lip liner to define the shape and prevent any bleeding. Fill in your lips with a liquid lipstick in a shade that complements your overall makeup look. If the color is too dark, you can always blend it in with your finger for a softer, more natural finish.

Touching Up Throughout the Day

Throughout the day, it’s natural for your makeup to fade or smudge. To keep your look fresh and flawless, follow these tips:

  1. Blotting Papers: Carry blotting papers with you to absorb excess oil and shine without disturbing your makeup.
  2. Setting Spray: Use a setting spray to lock in your makeup and extend its longevity.
  3. Powder Touch-Up: If your skin tends to get oily, lightly dust a translucent powder over your T-zone to control shine.
  4. Lipstick Touch-Up: After eating or drinking, check your lipstick and reapply if necessary.
  5. Mascara Touch-Up: If your mascara starts to flake or smudge, use a clean spoolie brush to remove any clumps and touch up your lashes.

Remember, a few quick touch-ups throughout the day can make a big difference in maintaining a fresh and polished look.

Setting and finishing your makeup is an essential step in any beauty routine. It involves applying products such as foundation, concealer, powder, blush, and setting spray to create a flawless and long-lasting look. Whether you prefer a natural or glam makeup style, setting and finishing your makeup helps to lock it in place and prevent smudging or fading throughout the day.
